Are you looking for good quality curtains in Perth but aren’t too sure where to start? While they might be functional items, if chosen correctly, curtains have the potential to have a big impact on the look and feel of your interiors. So what should you look for when choosing curtains?

Whether you’re building a new house or just want to give your home interior a bit of a facelift, make sure you read the rest of this blog to learn what you need to consider before buying your curtains in Perth.
Materials & Thickness
Think about where you live and how much your windows are exposed to the sun. Then consider how much time you spend in each room and the kind of things you do there. How much natural light do you want to enter and how much control do you need over it?
Curtains come in a variety of fabrics and vary in thickness. They range from slightly translucent to full-block out, so you have the freedom to pick a fabric that suits your needs best.
You’ll also want to choose curtains that keep Perth’s often erratic weather out, so it’s always a good idea to pick good quality materials that are thick enough to provide sufficient insulation in both the heat and the cold.
Size & Length
When it comes to getting the right size curtains for your windows, you’ll have to take accurate measurements to ensure you get the right fit. However, the right size doesn’t necessarily mean a perfect fit.
Hang your curtains 8 to 10 centimetres above your window and you’ll find that it gives your room a sense of height. For a more traditional look, add the same length to your curtains so that they just touch the floor.
If you have windows that irregular in size or are narrower than the usual, buying custom curtains will make sure that you get the right fit.
Colours & Designs
Here’s where you unleash your creativity and inner designer! While you’ll have a tonne of colours to pick from to complement your room, keep in mind that brighter colours tend to fade over time when exposed to the sun.
However, this won’t be a problem if you like to switch your curtains often or your windows don’t get a lot of sun.
