A Variety of Red Curtains Add Some Elegant Fun to Your Decor

Updated on July 11, 2010

Curtains are one of the easiest ways to spruce up your space. The possibilities for window dressings are endless, from pleated, to draperies, to simple straight hanging fabric. One of the more versatile aspects of purchasing fabric for your windows is that the fabric options available are many. Silk, taffeta, and cotton are classic fabric choices, but some may find that simply mixing up the color combinations they use gives them even more versatility. Some of the more popular colors of window dressings are brown, pink, yellow, white, and red curtains.

Red silk curtains, in particular, are an easy and inexpensive way to make a room look more rich and luxurious. Silk is widely available at fabric stores and online, and there are numerous shades of crimson, maroon, and brick available in which to purchase your fabric. These types of window dressings can benefit kitchens, dining rooms and bring a richness of design to any bedroom. Red floral curtains are also a popular option for rooms used more frequently, such as half bathrooms or entryways as they add a sense of playfulness and nature to the space.

Another reason red curtains are becoming so popular is because they block so much light from the window they cover. Some people choose instead to purchase red lined curtains that block the light nearly completely for certain rooms. This protects valuables such as paintings and expensive upholsteries from damage caused by intense, direct sunlight.

Changing paint color, purchasing new furniture, and adding window dressings to a room are the easiest and most inexpensive ways to totally change the feel of your home. Red curtains, in particular, add a sense of elegance and sophistication to a space, which should be taken into consideration when you’re deciding what other pieces to purchase and add to your room. To avoid becoming overly trendy, be sure and mix some of the colors and fabrics in your room. Sometimes adding too many prints or colors can make a space look overly decorated, which is highly undesirable.

If you feel it necessary, enlist the help of a professional decorator to give you advice on which items would look best in your space, but be sure to share with them your preferences in terms of color and fabric, and whether or not you want to have darker or lighter window dressings installed in your room. They should be able to follow your specifications and give you suggestions that best suit your needs while at the same time following your personal tastes. Home decorating can be challenging and fun, so be sure to weigh all of your options carefully before you begin, and make it a fun occasion.
