Curtains not only perform the obvious task of screening and separating different functional spaces, but also set the tone or mood of every room. Choosing the right material, colour or design can seem challenging given the myriad possibilities.

Here are some handy tips to help you decide:

  • Choose materials based upon the location in the home. Light & sheer curtains for windows, and drapes to block sunlight
  • Heavy fabrics are ornate and blend well with traditional decor. Lightweight cotton and lace are minimalist and understated
  • The choice of colour can make or break the look. Syncing them with the furnishings either to contrast or blend helps
