Curtains are one of the most important finishing touches in any room. The right curtains can completely transform the look and feel of a space. But with so many different styles, fabrics, and colours to choose from, it can be hard to know where to start.

In this article, we’ll give you a few tips on how to choose the right shutters for your home.

  • Choose the Right Size for Your Window:

The first step in choosing the right blinds for your home is to measure your window. You can find out how to do this here. If you’re not sure exactly what size you need, we recommend going with a slightly larger size than you think you need. That way, you can always pull them back slightly if they’re too long or wide – or even trim them down if they’re too short or narrow.

  • Pick a Style that Suits Your Home:

The style of your shutters will depend on what kind of room you want them for. For example, if you have an open-plan living area with lots of light coming in through large windows, then you might want something more traditional in order to maintain privacy and block out any light coming through. On the other hand, if you want something more modern or contemporary then try something like a pleated shutter which offer maximum light control without compromising on design or style.


  • Decide Whether You Need Blackout Curtains:

If you live in an area where light pollution is a problem during the day, blackout curtains can help keep your room dark and comfortable at all times of the day. Blackout shutters are made from thick fabric that blocks out light while still letting air through (they aren’t actually black). If you want your room to be dark during the day but still let some light in at night, opt for lined blinds instead of blackout blinds.

  • Match the Fabric or Colour to Your Room:

Your shutters should complement your room rather than clash with it. If you have dark walls, don’t go for shutters in a dark fabric or colour; instead, choose lighter tones that will let natural light into your home while still maintaining privacy. If you have pale-coloured walls, try darker tones to bring out their beauty without washing them out completely.

  • Conclusion:

Ultimately, the curtains you choose depend on personal preference. But if you follow this advice, you’ll be ideally placed to choose curtains that complement your home.
