Before Buying Curtains

Curtains make a great addition to every home but there are a few things that everyone should consider before purchasing any new window treatment.

Which room is the window treatment for?

The fabric and style of your window treatments should vary based on the room’s your window treatments are placed in. For example, a Theatre Room that requires noise reduction and darkness will require different window treatments than your living room – where you might prioritise natural light in your living room. Similarly, whilst light control might be top priority in your bedroom, sheer fabrics may be a better choice for a bright and airy dining space. Every home is unique, so it’s important to consider what you are trying to achieve in each room of your home, as this will help to narrow down the fabric and style of your curtains.

What décor does the room currently have? What fabric type should I choose?

Curtain fabrics come in a wide range of designs, colours and textures suitable for your home.

A great place to start is with the décor you already have. Consider the colours, textures and patterns in the room that you’re planning to add your new window treatments to. What colour are your walls? If they’re white, do they have cool or warm undertones? What colours and textures are your soft furnishings? Your existing décor will provide the cues for selecting the perfect shade or texture. Maybe you’ve already incorporated a bold shade into a room with soft furnishings – Curtains could really tie the room together! Whether you’re looking for blockout curtains or soft sheer curtains, custom made curtains will add warmth and sophistication in any room.

How much sunlight does the room get?

Sultan’s Curtains use only the highest quality, durable and long-lasting fabrics from Australia’s leading fabric suppliers. All of our fabrics have been thoroughly tested to ensure that your curtains will look brand new and unfaded for many years to come.

Do you need to create privacy?

Privacy is often a key consideration when buying new window treatments. If you’re buying curtains for your bedroom or street-facing windows then protecting your home from prying eyes is probably your main concern. Curtains provide excellent privacy, light control and reduce outside noise allowing you to effectively control your environment. Layer our sheer curtains over roller blinds to allow for night time privacy and light control. For the ideal combination, integrate sheer and blockout curtains together with our double curtains. Combine two curtains on the one window so you can enjoy window views with diffused light and privacy during the day and close the blockout curtain at night for complete privacy.
