Especially when the season changes like now, at the beginning of autumn, it’s a great way to give your rooms a refreshed look. Curtains will make the room – every interior designer will agree on this, they are a statement piece which are also a necessity. Here’s some great tips how not to feel overwhelmed with the choices and what to look for when buying new curtains.
Think about colour and texture
When you have a neutral wall colour, try to pick a bold coloured curtain. But if you have a vibrant coloured wall – maybe go for a neutral colour when you pick the curtain. Mustards, greys and dark reds are very trendy – and you can keep them for a few years to com as the interior trends are not tend to change in every year. Linen look has been one of the top choices lately: they look elegant but simple at the same time.
Think about style
Do you like traditional interior or rather a minimalist one? Do you like mixing lots of styles and prefer some eclectic chic? Think about what is it you’re trying to achieve with the change: adding a new item to complete a look or do you want to change the look of the room?
Think about fitting
Pencil pleat curtains are are the best choice for perfectly fitting any window and pole size, as you can simply adjust the tops for fitting and the job is mainly done. You won’t need any handyman or fitting service which also saves some money for you.

You can get them with either a pole or a track. Looking after them is very easy: some of them are machine washable and it’s possible to iron them on the reverse and some of them can be easily dry cleaned.
Think about the extras

Think about your budget
Nice, good quality curtains don’t have to cost the Earth. But if you set your mind on something you like, shop around and try to find it cheaper. Often if you buy more products together you’ll get a bit of a discount.
Think about the matching products
Getting cushions or sofa throws matching with your new curtains is always a good idea. Explore the whole range of the chosen curtain and maybe add a few other things as well. Small pieces can make such a huge difference in style!
