A home is not complete without a curtain in place. Curtains act as an insulator, increases privacy, and beautifies your home. With a variety of popular types of curtains, you are sure to find one that would meet with your needs. Here are a few factors that home owners should consider before purchasing a curtain. 


Window Shape 


The first step towards purchasing a curtain is to investigate your window built. Unique window shapes would add a flair of personality to your home. As such, your window type would determine the type of curtain you purchase and install. A tall rectangular window shape may be best paired with floor length curtains while a shorter window may be best highlighted with a curtain that is fit to its measurements. You may be searching for chic living room curtains, but a misplaced window grill may eliminate this option. For some cases, it can be resolved with a special installation but that would cost you money. If you would like to avoid unnecessary spending, we could guide you on how to save money when buying curtains. Let Curtains House Singapore know of the other concerns you may have and we are more than happy to recommend window curtains that will work with the carpentry of your home. 


Window Depth 


The depth of your window may also limit your curtain choices, because it may affect how the curtains can be installed. The curtain track for floor length living room curtains are commonly installed above the window, while some window curtains are installed with the curtain track resting within the window frame. For instance, pleated shades are able to fit into your window and rest on the window sill when pulled down. Installing within the frame is only possible if the depth of your window is deep enough.  




Understanding the fabric of a curtain is important as it holds a major impact in its overall appearance and aftercare. Silk fabrics are elegant and could be reserved as bedroom curtains so that it does not get dirty quickly, compared to high traffic areas in your home. Take note that silk fabrics are delicate and require dry cleaning services which would make it a high maintenance curtain. Other fabrics such as polyester, linen, and cotton, are easy to clean and less likely to shrink during wash. These fabrics are great for door curtains and kitchen curtains where you are most likely to get spills and stains. 




The two types of lighting – natural and artificial – would affect the appearance of curtains too. Natural light is what you experience when sunlight penetrates into your home. On the other hand, there are varying types of artificial lights present in every home. These include warm, white, and cool lightings that give off different moods in your home. Cool white lights are best to achieve a clean look while warm white lights are great if you are going for a softer look. Therefore, you should check the type of lighting in your home as it could end up being too harsh for the curtain of your choice or they could blend in harmoniously with the theme. 


Ultimately, many home owners tend to overlook the importance of curtains in their home. In fact, there are more things that curtains can do for you apart from just blocking out direct sunlight. Knowing the built of your home and windows are essential factors in picking out a curtain. If still in doubt, Curtains House Singapore is here to help navigate you through the technical considerations so you can focus on adding your own personal touch to your home.
