Tips for Buying Curtains

by | Jul 31, 2013 | Home Improvement

You have finally gotten the remodel on your house completed and now it’s time to start working on the inside of your home. You want new furniture, new carpeting, new scatter rugs, and above all, you want to replace your curtains with those gorgeous Custom Window Treatments that you have been dreaming about for months now. Now, that you have made up your mind to get the new curtains, you will need to know how to go about choosing them. Below are some tips on choosing the right curtains for your spanking new home.

The first thing you need to know when choosing Custom Window Treatments is that you want to match them to your decor as much as possible. You just had the walls redone and new carpeting laid, so you don’t want your curtains to take away from everything else you have worked so hard for. Choose colors and styles that compliment your new home, not detract from it.

Next, you will want to set a budget that works for you. You may not have much left after the remodel, so of course you want the best deal at the cheapest price. Go through your rooms and add up how much you think it will cost you, and measure every window along the way, then sit down and work up a budget so you know just how much you need, and how much you can afford to spend.

You don’t want to use overly loud colors in small rooms, just as you don’t want colors that are too subdued in large rooms. You want something that pops when a guest walks into the room, but not something that has them covering their eyes, or not noticing the gorgeous new furniture.

Buying Custom Window Treatments doesn’t have to be a hassle, if you follow the tips above. The one thing you do not want to do is just rush out and buy Custom Window Treatments without following the tips above. You may get home and find out that the color is all wrong, you have spent way too much, and the curtains don’t even fit the windows to begin with.
