With so many different window coverings available today, it can be hard to know which type to choose for your bedroom. Should you opt for shutters or blinds, or would traditional curtains be a better idea? Although shutters and blinds are very popular, there are still many great reasons for choosing curtains for your bedroom windows.
Control Your Room’s Temperature
Maintaining a consistent and comfortable temperature in your bedroom is vital if you want to get enough sleep. Too hot or too cold an environment will not only cause discomfort but will also prevent you from enjoying a full eight hours of rest. Curtains represent an ideal way of controlling the temperature in your bedroom, and linen drapes are the perfect choice since they look elegant without compromising on practicality. Much more heavy duty that they would appear at first glance, curtains made from this soft and stylish fabric are able to keep the room warm in the colder months while effectively protecting against excess heat during the summer.
Stop Prying Eyes
Whether your bedroom is on the ground floor or whether there is a window looking directly into your room, having some way of protecting your privacy is essential. Keep out prying eyes by covering your windows with a good quality pair of made to measure curtains that are slightly bigger than the window itself as this will stop any neighbours from gazing in at a side angle.
Cut Down On Dust
People with respiratory problems or allergies can react very badly to dust in the environment and that’s where curtains can help. While this sounds counter-intuitive since the material actually gathers dust from other areas, this is actually a benefit since it prevents the accumulation of dust in other parts of the room. By frequently washing or vacuuming your bedroom curtains, you will be effectively cutting down the amount of dust in your room’s atmosphere.
Control The Light
While most people think that blinds are the best way of controlling light in a room, curtains are a great solution too. Opening the curtains wide during the day allows natural sunlight to flood in, meaning that you won’t need to switch on your lights, saving on energy, but if you want to restrict the amount of light in the space, for example to see the computer screen or TV more effectively, you can close them to block the sun out.
Customized Bedroom Style
Curtains come in a broad spectrum of colours, patterns, designs and fabrics, so there is certain to be something that perfectly complements your taste and décor. Use your curtains to make a statement or a focal point in your space, or even use them to give the illusion of more light by choosing a light colour. Highlight colour accents in the room by reflecting them in your choice of curtain material or choose a coordinated look to match your duvet.
Curtains are aesthetically pleasing and infinitely practical, and with so much choice to pick from, they are the perfect window covering for your bedroom.
