At Yorkshire Fabric Shop, we love curtains and think that they can be a beautiful focal point of any room (although we may be a little biased) but we know that it can be difficult to decide on the right style and the right pattern for your room.
There are several options for framing your windows, from light lace curtains to roller blinds or shutters; you are sure to find the perfect option for your style. Shutters are great if you want both privacy and light in your room. When it comes to shutters, there are so many choices out there. Some will let you have the shutters either open or closed; others will have independently moving panels, allowing you to control the amount of light entering a room. Make sure that you think about your furniture before you make a purchase though; you need to ensure that you can open your shutters without any furniture in the way. If you’re thinking of putting shutters in the bathroom or the kitchen, just be aware that taps can cause an obstruction too. Beiges, whites and neutral colours are always a safe option as they blend with any colour scheme that you may have chosen, but we always love taking a risk, and bright colours can make a fantastic impact on your room. Don’t forget that your shutters will be visible from the outside too so choose your colour carefully.
Just in time for the colder months, why not us dramatic winter florals for your curtains? This is going to be a big trend for Autumn/Winter and can really make a statement. Rich berry tones add an element of drama to your home, we particularly love our Fiona Embossed Floral Pattern Chenille, our Piccadilly Collection Leaf Floral Fabric and our Purple Floral Design Fabric. When using curtains, think about lining, not only can lining make your curtain feel more high-quality it can help to prevent heat loss by adding an extra layer of insulation.
Why not opt for a solid colour for your curtains? If you want to implement a colour into your room but don’t want to put it on the walls, your curtains can be a great way to showcase this. Curtains add softness to a room while still acting as a focal point. Think about length too, floor-to-ceiling curtains make your ceiling appear much higher. While pooling the curtain on the floor adds elegance and decadence. While we love every single shade, blue is a popular choice, especially for Winter. Blue is a cooler colour so keep a room cosy by teaming it with darker yellows.
Nature is having a huge influence on our interiors, and that includes curtains, but natural doesn’t mean boring, just look at our Ketu Collection Pebble Stone Effect Fabric. Opting for natural fabrics and colours has many more benefits than just looking great, take a look at our blog “Use natural materials to bring tranquillity” to find out more.
