Choosing the curtain design for your living room
. When choosing the curtain design for the living room, it is very important to first consider the colour of your wall-paint.

. Ensure that the colour of your curtains does not blend with your wall, rather choose a complementary colour such that would create effective neutral hues. If the colour of your wall is a primary colour, ensure the colour of your curtain is a complementary secondary colour to have either a cool-colour-wall and warm-colour-curtains or vice-versa in order to have a simultaneous contrast ambience of natural illusion when the curtains are fixed and placed next to the wall for both colours to appear brighter and grab viewer’s attention.

. Once the colour is decided and settled, choose a less complex but quality curtain. Quality curtains are far from the light-texture curtains that get easily blown up by any form of air. Good quality curtains are firm and durable with or without curtain lining.

. The last criterion would be your curtain rod or pole; it is import to choose a rod that brings out the aesthetics of your curtain, such that when you part the curtains side ways, the rod or pole radiates the attempt.

Your Bedroom

It is advisable to choose quality curtains with two or more colours so that as you inter change your pillow covers, bedspread and duvet; you can have complementing colour options.

Dining Room
This is peculiar for those who have a separate dining room from the living room. It is an eating room and at such complex techniques might not be required when choosing curtain-colour. But ensure to choose a curtain colour bright enough for illumination, as that section of the home needs as much brightness as possible.
