The Art Of Choosing Curtains

23 April 2012,

Curtains make a room, but only when chosen correctly. When it comes to window treatments, it’s a matter of fabric, colour, length and lining. With so many decisions, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed.

FABRIC & COLOUR

Fabric is an essential part of choosing curtains, as the material dictates how well the curtains function and hold up over time. If they’re too heavy, they may not fold crisply when drawn; too light and they may not fall well.

Jason Low, founder of Curtains Place, suggests holding fabrics up to a window, even in a fabric showroom. “Pleat it like an accordion at the top and let it drape,” he says. Always work with a big sample, at least 2 yards, since a smaller piece may not show the fabric’s true drape.

Sunlight will fade fabrics over time. If the room gets a lot of light, it’s smart to avoid bright colours, since they tend to fade faster. Low suggests going with neutral colours, as they’re less likely to fade and more likely to blend into a room’s decor.

Linen, silk, faux silk and velvet are best choices to use for window treatments since they tend to hang the best. Faux silk tends to be the most durable and in a sunny room, faux silk doesn’t fade as quickly as real silk.

Some fabrics can help keep out the cold. Many hotels use suede, velvet or blackout since its weight helps block light and keep heat in. Still, nearly any fabric can be interlined with bump, a thick, insulating felt material. The method of interlining —a piece of fabric slipped between the lining and the face fabric —can also help prolong the life of the curtains
