Choosing Your Living Room Curtain

In decorating your personal space, the major consideration in choosing your living room curtain is taste.
This encompasses keen eye to design, ability to distinguish what choice of fabric works well with the furniture and even the nitty-gritty of the living room and perhaps the capacity to see things in a rather unusual sense like sensing what type or size or design of curtain would complement the room.
How to choose the right fabric? What's so tricky with choosing what fabric to use as curtain is the array of choices presented to you while shopping.
Choosing the pattern for the fabric - The usual choices are the floral, checkered and plain design patterns.
Some who are more open to seemingly awkward choices go for unusual designs like psychedelic and abstract patterns.
The choice actually lies on the general theme of the living room and the atmosphere you want to create.
Choosing the material - Not all fabrics can be made into curtains or drapes so be sure to pick those that are actually recommended for drapery.
There are fabrics that could camouflage the architectural defects of the room and there are those that are intended to help maintain your privacy and block/control the entrance natural light from outside.
So be sure to pinpoint your priorities when shopping for the right fabric.
How does your living room look like? The selection of your curtains lies primarily on the design or theme of your living room, its furniture and decors.
Does it have the family heirloom, luxurious sofas and couches that spell the history of your family antiques, most prized collections, or mementos? If this is the case, your living room must have a formal arrangement that is unorthodox and very traditional.
The curtain that works best with this type of living room is the one made with expensive fabrics, with lavish trimmings and a little dressy.
On the other hand, a modern-looking living room which is typically two-toned requires a plainer choice of fabric that is somewhere in between the primary choice of colors.
A darker hue of fabric would create a sense of depth while lighter hues help set off the darker tone of the room.
How do you want to present your living room curtain? Victorian-style homes with formal living rooms have curtains that are tied back which gives them flows and folds, while minimalist living rooms let the curtains flow on almost straight, natural lines to go with the rectangular design of the house.
