Curtains 2018: how to choose curtains, trends of the year and tips for pros

Should the curtains touch the floor, what curtains will fit into a small room, and which ones will make a cozy large? Let review these and other issues.

 

 

What should I consider when choosing curtains?

  • Curtains, which depict a transverse contrast print, visually expand the room, and the vertical pattern makes it more elongated.

  • If you do not want the curtains to touch the floor, then the distance between their edge and the floor covering should be 5-8 cm, and if on the contrary - their length should exceed the wall height by 15-20 cm.

 

 

  • On the sides of the window there are small piers? Do not close the curtains - so you'll only "weight" the look of the room.
  • For rooms with low ceilings, choose curtains from light fabrics of light colors.
  • In the nursery, kitchen or study, long drapes do not fit, it is better to choose Roman blinds or, as an option, French curtains.
  • Long light curtains decorate and adjust the volume of small rooms. Dark curtains hang in a large room - the space immediately becomes more chambery, cozier.

 

 

How to decide the color of curtains?

If you are not going to change furniture in the near future in the room, you can pick up the curtains under the color of the furniture. Now this reception is one of the most popular among designers. In this case, you must choose the color of the curtains the same as the color of the furniture, or it should be as close as possible.

An excellent option - curtains of neutral tones. It can be a sandy, beige, cream or natural shade. Such curtains always look beautiful and unobtrusive.

 

 

If the interior of the room is made in the same color, the curtains should slightly shade the overall background. In other words, you have to choose curtains of such coloring so that they do not merge with furniture and wallpaper. It is best to choose curtains for two or three tones lighter or darker than the interior of the room.

Also popular are two-color curtains - they perfectly match with the color scheme of any room.

 

 

Secrets of the pros you should know about

To visually impart a warm room to the room, it's best to hang curtains of warm shades: green, yellow, brown, beige, golden, orange, yellow-green ... If the room looks north, it's just an indispensable option. In addition, warm tones visually approximate and increase the window.

 

 

As for cold colors (blue, blue, lilac, neon, sapphire, turquoise), they are perfect for those rooms that look out on the sunny side. A cool color scheme of curtains creates a sense of coolness and visually distances the window.

To the window did not seem narrow and small, hang the curtains on the cornice. But keep in mind that the cornice should extend beyond the window frame approximately 20-25 cm on both sides.

 

 

High ceilings can be visually reduced using curtains that will hang at the level of the window. Even better, if they are bright, active shades. You can use lambrequins or brushes as a supplement. They, like color, divert attention from the high walls.

If the window in the room is low in relation to the ceiling, the cornice should be raised as high as possible, and the curtains should be hung in such a way that they touch the floor. So you visually extend the window and make it higher.

 

 

Curtains for different rooms: what to consider when choosing

Bedroom

Choose curtains of such colors that they did not stand out from the general picture of the interior. Pay attention to more calm and unobtrusive tones - they will create a quiet, comfortable environment.

 

 

 

Living room

Here the curtains should be monophonic in the classical style. Excellent addition to such curtains will be lambrequins, brushes, eyelets. And if you do not like the details, hang conventional curtains, but they should have a ceremonial look.

 

 

Kitchen

Place your bet not so much on beautiful, as on practical and functional curtains. They should be sewn from a durable material that is easily washed.

Personally, I like translucent or light curtains, as well as blinds or Roman blinds. Remember and about the colors: red contributes to the awakening of appetite, while blue, on the contrary, suppresses it.

 

 

Study room or library

In the office or library, the curtains should look solid, adjust to the working environment, at the same time create a cozy space. Suitable are dark green, emerald, dark beige, chocolate, maroon curtains of dense fabric in a classic style.

 

 

Kids room

Bright, light, with a cheerful and fabulous print curtains are ideal for a child's room. Just keep in mind: these drapes must be sewn from a durable fabric, because they are often dirty and blurred.
