Choosing curtains to complement your room design


If there is one major thing to think about when designing a room, it is the colour scheme. The colour you decide to use in a room can significantly affect not only the way it feels but also the way it makes you feel. Different colours can alter our mood greatly so this is something to bear in mind when revamping your home.

As well as the paint colour, you must think about the colour of your curtains too. This is just as essential as the paint or wallpaper you will use, so don't forget about it! Whether you go for something that matches or more of a contrasting colour, getting it right will make your room sing.

We take a look at some great ideas to get you started:

Natural Scandi look

The Scandinavian look is huge in interior design currently so it makes sense to start here. In terms of colour schemes, it is hues like light greys, neutral creams or rich browns. This is a great colour scheme if you want an understated, laid-back feel for the room in question.

In terms of curtains, why not go for something like a pair of Fiji Faux Silk Ready Made Curtains? The silver blends perfectly with the other colours but also adds a hint of unexpected glamour to give extra zing to the design.

Mediterranean style

An ever-popular choice in terms of colour schemes is this look. Perfect for energetic rooms such as lounges or children's play rooms, it gives that freshness but in an elegant way. Colours here are shades like terracotta, aubergine or warm oranges.

A superb curtain choice for this design that we have in stock is the Ravalli Gold Ready Made Curtain. This gives a beautiful contrast to the oranges or warmer tones in the room while not looking out of place at all.

Calming blue getaway

If you want a colour scheme to soothe your mind in a bathroom or bedroom then go blue. There are so many wonderful shades from aquamarine to darker cobalt that you will easily find one that looks sublime. Teamed with white, it can really make a room your own coastal retreat.

The best option here is voile panels as they will fit in with the relaxed and light nature of the design. The Casablanca Voile Panel we stock is highly recommended for this look. Not only does it fit well with the other colours but it has a glittery effect due to the metallic threads that run through the material.
