How to choose the right curtains for your living room

There are so many different kinds of curtains to choose from if you're looking for the perfect texture or fabric. Picking one can be tricky, but luckily we have done most work by highlighting what factors should go into your selection process!

There are many considerations to keep in mind when choosing living room curtains. Here are the most important things to think about:

Room size
Ease of operation
Fabric and color


When hanging curtains, it’s important to measure how high they will be above your window. A rule of thumb is that you should hang them at least six inches higher than what's coming off the bottom edge of your frame and about four or eight inches on either side for good measure so there is no sunlight creeping in when the shades are closed during daytime hours
Meters can get confusing but don't worry - here we've included simple calculations for measurements like width (before adding extra space) which helps ensure nice fitted linings without any gaps!

Room Size 

Your choice of curtain should optimize the size of your living room in one way or another. Small spaces, for example, look bigger and better with classic panel curtains. Larger rooms will do just fine with full thick drapes that make them seem extra cozy when you pick an appropriate pattern like stripes or colors!


It's not always easy to know what fabric will be best for your home. For example, winter is the perfect time to hang a curtain made from thin material like muslin or chiffon because it lets in less heat than other types of fabrics while still providing privacy during those cold months when you don't want people looking into your room without permission! On the opposite side of this spectrum are summer solids - being opaque means they can keep out glare which could otherwise cause headaches if reading by sunlight coming through windows all day long...

Ease Of Operation

Curtains should be able to close and open at any time of day. That means they need a simple, easy draw or push back so you don't have hassle with them! Just make sure your curtains are on rods because these work great for all window sizes no matter what size rooms we're talking about here- big or small.

Fabric And Color

A material's quality can determine the longevity and function of curtains. Whatever you choose, heavy duty fabrics will keep rooms cool during cold weather while linen or silk are best suited for warm climates where they may act as shields against heat coming through your window panes instead!

What Color Should Living Room Curtains Be?

Curtains are a great way to add color and style to your living room. When you're choosing a curtain color, consider the colors of furniture in the space, if it's dark or light outside, and what mood you want to create. For example:
-If your sofa is red with cream pillows, cool tones like greens will work best. -If it's winter time and there isn't much sunlight coming through the windows, warmer tones will be better for creating warmth in the space.

If your living room is missing some zing, don't hesitate to liven up the place with vibrant curtains. Orange (or any other bold color) will really make a statement and bring life into any space!

Should Your Curtains Match Your Wall Color?

As you pay attention to the colors of your room dividers, don’t neglect your sofas. You should match the color scheme and design style that best fits with what's already present in order for it all come together as a balanced individual unit instead of feeling like one big jumbled mess! For example: if there is an bold pattern on display across  then using those same hues would not work well because they tend towards being more calm - however lightening them slightly will bring out better results than staying completely faithful which may cause unwanted distractions such as contrast overloads between different elements within your home."

Get The Right Hanging Style For Your Curtain

Your choice of hanging styles for your curtains can make all the difference in how they are perceived. There are several different kinds, like tab tops and grommets to rod-pockets or pleats on rods; these will depend largely upon what you're able afford as well as if it's something that would work best with other elements already present such an arching light fixtures over windowsills nearby.
"Whatever style you decide," though I recommend using tabs since they're more cost effective AND easy set up!
