If you’re in the market for new curtains or blinds, you will want to ensure whatever you choose matches the style and decor of your home. It can be difficult choosing the window treatments for your home, with so many products and styles to choose from, however, the first step is to look at the existing decor to find out what options will suit the style of your home and make your furniture and fixtures pop for all the right reasons.
Whether you are installing blinds, curtains, or any other style of window treatment, there are a few things to consider when you are shopping around for your home decor. Here are some tips on how you can match your home decor to your curtains and blinds.
1. Go with a solid color or something that is neutral in tone
No one wants to remember your home simply for your curtains or blinds, and choosing the color for your window treatments should focus on finding a solid color or palette that compliments the furniture and style of the specific room you are installing the blinds or curtains in. Stay away from prints and loud, on-trend styles, and move towards natural or neutral colors that will blend in with the room and suit a wide range of tastes.
2. Match your curtains to your walls
A simple trick to choosing a great curtain or blind is to select a product that matches your walls or is close to the same shade. This way, you can accentuate the room without taking away from the style of the furniture and soft furnishings you have in your space. You can add a pop of color on your lounge or couch, so a neutral color that matches the walls can be a great option for your home or space.
3. If you have a pattern on your couch, keep your curtains or blinds solid in color
It can be overwhelming to walk into a room and see a pattern on a couch contrasting a pattern on a curtain, so if you have a pattern in one, keep the other simple. Rather than a pattern on a curtain, why not consider a textured look, to add the extra dimension you might be looking for.
4. Call in the experts if styling isn’t your thing
At the end of the day, if styling a home or decor isn’t your thing, a blind and curtain professional can help style your home or property with options that will suit the space and draw attention to your decor for the right reasons. There are styles such as clashing color with patterns that can be achieved, however, it is best to ensure someone with a good design eye completes this look.
There are plenty of benefits for adding new curtains and blinds to the property including privacy, adding some extra style to space, and also adding some energy efficiency to windows and doors. A professional curtain and blind provider can visit your home, measure, quote, and provide examples of materials and curtains that would suit your home or space.
Curtains and blind styles are a personal decision, however, if you are looking to sell your property in the near future, you should be mindful to select neutral options that could appeal to a wide range of tastes and preferences. While bright and bold might be your preferred choice, it might not suit the next homeowner and could put them off during a home inspection.
