  • Measurement: Take measurement of each door and windows. Before you decide to buy make sure those curtain pieces will suit your windows and doors. You can still alter if the curtains bought are larger but make sure the curtain you choose are not smaller.
  • Fabric: There are umpty number of options in curtain fabric, simple cotton curtains to fancy lace curtains to satin fabric. Choose the fabric wisely. For eg: For bedrooms you can choose nice lace curtains and for dining room something which doesn’t become dirty easily and so on. Also choose a fabric which you can machine wash, if you don’t want to give them for dry cleaning.

  • Durability:Β If you are someone who love to change curtain every year you need not go for a fabric Β which are too durable. Opt for cheaper options in that case. On the other hand if you want to your home curtains to stay forever choose expensive curtains which are more durable. Machine wash will ruin expensive fabrics so give them for dry cleaning.
  • Cost: It’s all upon how much you want to spend. You’ll get simple cheap curtains which may not be very durable. If you want an exotic look for your home, go for expensive options. You can still select cost effective options by wisely selecting rods and hooks(plastic ones are cheaper than metal). Check online stores for cheaper and discounted options.

  1. Nice post! I loved the curtains in the first 2 pics. My hostel room curtains are so plain and boring…this post makes me want to change them so badly..but sadly I cannot πŸ™

  2. This is such an important post. Thank you for writing it. Curtains are a nice way to put personality and style in a room. A lot of people don’t really put much thought into them.

  3. I like how you mentioned getting cheaper curtains if you tend to change them out frequently. My husband and I just moved into a new house, and I’m excited to get started on fully furnishing it. I like to change things up every year or so, so maybe it would be a good idea to get cheaper curtains since they won’t need to last for a long time.
