A wonderful way of making a window stand out and look sophisticated is by choosing a stunning curtain. With the right treatments, your window makes a big impact and draw together an entire look. Before starting to think about color or style you need to consider its function. Compare to colors and styles functionality is a narrow area, so starting with the functionality you can save a lot of time and effort.
If you have a small room and want to make it feel a little spacious and look bigger, you can choose a plain pattern sheer.

Also, curtains block out the noise and diminish the negative effects of the sun over your furniture.
The fabric of a curtain is an essential part of choosing since the material will dictate how well your curtains function and hold up over time.
Keep in mind that sunlight will fade fabrics over time so it is an important consideration. If the room you want to pick a curtain for, gets a lot of light, the smartest choice will be light colors, since they are more resistant to fade so ou can use them longer than dark color curtains.

When it comes to choosing a perfect curtain for your bathroom, you will find there are a few more unique considerations than when choosing curtain styles for other areas of your home. Because of the moisture in the bathroom linen curtains are not an appropriate option for these areas because they hold moisture and they will be spoiled by moisture by time. Generally, bathroom windows are really small so bathroom windows let a small amount of light in. In order to let more light in you need to pick light colors to prevent the bathroom from feeling dark.
Consider that the hanging rods must be in tune with the overall style of the room. Pick a color and style suits to a whole.
Measuring the curtains is another important consideration you need to make before buying it. Before you start, decide about the height that will be between window top and your curtain start point. In general, this space between the windows and the beginning of the curtain is six inches, and it above the frame. If your panels hang higher than the window it can give a sense of height to the room. Higher the panel creates a more dramatic look. Start measuring from the top of the window to the floor, but you can always add some inches. If you want to create a traditional look you can add two to four inches to your length. When it comes to measuring the width of your window always add five or a few more inches on both sides and double the total number to ensure curtain fullness. If you want a draped look, the curtain should be 3 times as wide as the window and to obtain a tailored look, curtain panels should be 2 inches wider than the window. In this way, when you open the curtains you don’t block window glass. If you are not comfortable with the sunlights that drop in your room, these additional inches will allow you to block out the unwanted lights. If this is your priority you can even add more inches to the width, it will definetely help you with blocking.
Another important consideration is that whether you want a curtain that can be washed in a washer machine or dry-clean only. In this way, if you make the right choice you will see the benefits in the long run. Before buying any curtain look for their wash instructions, if you don’t, you can ruin your high-quality and expensive curtains with washing yourself. And this mistake can be made very easily.
