Little ones in the decoration of the living room and bedroom, the curtains can fulfill many roles within an environment, they serve for diverse purposes, from controlling the luminosity that enters the room how much like item of the decoration.

Choosing a bedroom curtain is not the easiest task as there are many fabric options, finishing and other details that if strategically thought can have a much more decorative effect on your environment. Thinking through this we separate some tips to make your project something simpler, without worries or surprises:

Curtain for bedroom: watch out for window measures

To know the final size of the curtain you must keep in mind that it is necessary to leave a"leftover"of fabric in relation to the size of the window, so your curtain will cover the window even when it is windy, avoiding much clarity and also guaranteeing the aesthetic standard appropriate.

There are two types of calculations you can do to find out the ideal curtain size for your environment; for light fabrics you should multiply the window size and the size of the window by 2, or for heavier or heavier fabrics, multiplication should be done by 3. Below you can see two examples of curtain size calculation:

  1. Window size + 20 cm (right side) + 20 cm (left side) =? x 2 = ideal curtain size. Ex: 1,20m (window) + 20cm (right side) + 20cm (left side) = 1,60m x 2 = 3,20m of fabric;
  2. Window size + 20 cm (right side) + 20 cm (left side) =? x 3 = ideal curtain size. Ex: 1,20m (window) + 20cm (right side) + 20cm (left side) = 1,60m x 3 = 4,80m of fabric;

Check the space in the ceiling and wall to decide how much height and support will be used in your curtain

Another important choice is which type of support is most appropriate for your project? Man or rail? If the trimmer is part of the ceiling structure of the room, the rails are embedded in the plaster finish, giving a super stylish effect. The rod is an easy to install and clean option and has many finishing options, such as chrome, gold, wood, among others.

Usually the height of the curtain extends across the wall, that is, it goes from ceiling to floor. In this way the right foot is elongated and the environment becomes more cozy. The short curtains combine best with environments that contain furniture under the window or with children's rooms, because they give a relaxed and air to the environment.

Types of colors and possible textures

Keep in mind that neutral colors give more freedom to decorate a more colorful setting, while the more vivid and colorful tones help to give more joy and personality to the environment.

It is important to note that darker, more intense tones usually fade with sunlight as time passes, so you should also consider the intensity of light entering the room when deciding the colors of the curtain.

The heavier or overlapping fabrics are ideal for the cooler season, as they help warm up the environments, as well as reduce the feeling of"emptiness"in the environment that sometimes happens during the cold.

Already in the case of choosing the most full-bodied fabrics or with prints the tip is to value the neutral background and leave them just as a shawl. So the highlight of the color or print is only for more punctual details, keeping the curtain harmonized with the environment with a lighter decor.

Main types of curtain

  • Blinds : a kind of practical curtain that allows greater control of the luminosity that enters the environment. The two most commonly used types of blinds are rollo, which is a type of blind made of woven fabric that is rolled up when shrunk, and Roman, which is made up of blades and is mainly found in PVC, wood, bamboo and aluminum.
  • Blackout : This type of curtain is made with a thicker material and has the function of blocking the entrance of light, besides increasing the acoustic insulation of the environment. When used in the bedroom, the blackout curtain is ideal for increasing sleep quality, as it ensures that the"darkness"lasts until the time of waking up. In the past, many people have been bothered by the"plasticized"effect of the fabric of this curtain, but today there are several options of blackout curtains with lighter fabrics and in different colors.
  • Voal curtain : This is the classic curtain model, which can be used either alone or in conjunction with some type of liner and / or a thicker cover. Its texture can inspire refinement and simplicity in the same environment.
  • Curtains made of serge, velvet, linen or shantung : Fuller fabrics are highly recommended for dorms because they enhance the feeling of coziness, and you can also choose from a variety of textured effects found in each of them.
