The choice of curtains – the final touch in the interior of the living room. We tell what to look for.
Decide why you need curtains in the living room: hide you from the annoying glances of the residents of a neighboring house or curious passersby, remove the unpleasant light from the lanterns, or just decorate an empty window. The answer will depend on the design and material of the curtains, which are suitable for your living room. If your goal is to completely darken the room and remove the light from the street, blackout curtains are better suited. Privacy will give translucent tulle and roman blinds that let in light. And if we talk about decorating the window, where your imagination can be limitless.
The most resistant burn-out fabrics are dense servants and brocade; they can be hung on the living room windows located on the sunny side. Colored linen, colored tulle, and cotton are more suitable for the shady side. From the fabric that you choose for curtains, also depends on the appearance of the finished product. Curtains for the living room of soft fabric can be draped with beautiful folds, but the dense material will hang “stake”. By the way, thin cotton and linen curtains will not work draped.
It is important to choose the color of the curtains to the interior of the living room, then you get a harmonious atmosphere. If you need to visually expand the space, take a fabric of the same color with the walls or a little lighter – so you are the redeemer from the sharp borders of color. In some cases, on the contrary, for the design of the room, it will be advantageous to choose curtains in contrast colors or with a bright print. Our advice: when choosing curtains in the living room, discard the fabrics of brown, dark green and black – they look too gloomy.
What kind of curtains for curtains to choose in the living room depends largely on the style of the interior. For modern rooms more suitable hidden mounting systems that need to be thought out at the initial stage of repair. In this case, the curtain tire is attached to the ceiling and hidden behind drywall or stretch ceiling. For a living room in Provence and Classic style, brass cornices with side decorations will be ideal.
When it comes to the design of curtains in the living room, do not be afraid of layering. Use for window decoration several layers of textiles: for example, translucent tulle and thick drapes or Roman curtain fabric with a pattern and light monophonic curtains on the sides. Experiment.
