Modern curtaining ideas for your home

Are you on the lookout for some curtaining ideas? The curtains that you purchase will depend on which room you are decorating. From bathroom to dining room curtains, there are plenty of options out there. Whether you are looking for modern curtain designs or a vintage style, we have it at Timms Curtain House.

The living room

When it comes to curtain ideas for living room spaces, you will need to consider the style of the area that you are decorating. Curtains should complement the overall design of the room. The size of the windows should influence your decision.

Another factor that needs to be considered is the amount of sunlight that the room gets. If you enjoy watching television in a living room which receives quite a bit of natural light, you may want to choose thicker curtains for reducing glare.

A great look for the living room comes in the form of taped chenille stripe curtains. The use of chenille material adds a texture to your room as well as decreases noise, increases privacy and looks super sophisticated.

The bedroom

Bedroom curtain ideas need to be both aesthetically pleasing as well as functional. The curtains that you select for your bedroom can play a vital role in keeping sunlight out and allowing you to get a good night’s sleep.

Block-out curtains are a great option if your bedroom gets a lot of sun in the morning. While the functionality is important, you also need to look for bedroom curtains that work with the style of your room. If you have an ultra-modern bedroom, you should opt for modern curtain designs.

If you prefer to make the most of the natural light, sheer ombre curtains can look beautiful.

The kitchen

Kitchen curtains play a key role in completing your kitchen decorations. From café type curtains to modern curtains, there are plenty of kitchen curtain ideas out there.

Firstly, you will need to consider the theme of your kitchen. Country, contemporary and casual styles are just a few of the suitable options for kitchens. Next you will need to choose the colour of the curtains.

Choosing curtains which are a contrasting colour to the walls will draw attention to the window area. Downplayed, neutral colours add an elegant aesthetic to the design of your kitchen. If you have patterned wallpaper in your kitchen, patterned curtains may clash or the area can look too busy. If this is the case in your kitchen, choose plain, neutral curtains.

To block out sunlight choose dark and thick material – though this may make your kitchen look smaller. On the other hand, if you want to make your kitchen look larger, curtains which are made from light coloured fabric will do the trick. You will also need to take into consideration that heavy fabrics retain odours more so than light, airy fabrics.

A common curtaining option for kitchens is café curtains. The kinds of curtains help to create privacy while still allowing the light to come in. Stunning patterned café curtains can help to brighten up your kitchen. Another option is to use lace curtains. Lace curtains create a feminine style in your kitchen.

The bathroom

Avoid choosing bathroom curtains that touch the floor as these can attract mildew. Shorter options are best for this room. If your bathroom window overlooks a public space such as a street or a park, privacy will be a priority when you are choosing curtains. Our suggestion for bathroom curtains is lightweight cotton. This fabric handles humidity well and it dries quickly. You can make a small bathroom appear larger with light coloured curtains.
