There are so many factors to take into consideration when it comes to choosing curtain fabrics, never mind making the choice from a photograph and then buying online with peace of mind. The first step is to identify what you need, you will want to complete this step before you start shopping around.
Firstly identify the colour scheme you are working with. You want to ensure the colour of the curtain fabric you choose will really complement your design and make it stand out. The curtains you choose now should enhance the space, but also be a colour that can be used in the future, so you can change your room design with ease without having to change every single aspect of your design.
With a colour in mind, consider what patterns will work with your overall design. The great thing about curtain fabrics is that there are so many great choices, which means you can select from a range of patterns and materials, you can find that perfect match that you feel will be the perfect finishing touch to your room design now and moving forward.
Always measure the window before you start having a look around. You need to know your length and width. Are you looking for curtains that will hand to the floor to make a dramatic impact or are you looking for curtains which will hang just below the window sill. This is down to personal preference and what will work best in the room. Next focus on the width. When making curtains, you want to add extra width to each side. Curtains are never dead straight, there will always be a space where the curtain gathers together, if you are looking at gathering the curtains, then you will want to add even more width to ensure you don’t come up short when you make the curtains once the material arrives.
Go online and choose a reputable fabric specialist company that is known for supplying top quality designer curtain fabrics that you feel you can trust. You can then start shopping around and looking for the products that meet your color, pattern and size needs. You will have a few to choose from, so don’t make a rush decision, rather focus on what you feel is going to work best in your space moving forward.
Once you have one or two different fabrics in mind, you are going to want to look at price. Prices are going to vary between fabrics, based on the designer, the size and the fabric itself. You often find that velvet and silk is more expensive than linen or polyester, so bear this in mind when making your selection.
The final three steps is to go through the suppliers website to identify if they will provide you with a returns guarantee. In the event the material arrives and you are not one hundred percent satisfied, you need to know you can return it. Further you want to know you are only buying the best quality and this is something that can only be checked once it arrives on your doorstep. The final step is to make your curtains, hang them and enjoy the perfect finish.
