Are Brown Curtains Right for Your Room?

Updated on August 29, 2010

The color choice you make for your curtains can have a drastic effect on the feel of any room in the house. It alters not only the lighting in the room, but the overall theme. Not choosing colors carefully can cause the room to clash, feel claustrophobic, or grow weary on the eyes. But choosing with care can make a room feel inviting and comfortable.

You may choose to go with brown curtains if you want your room to feel warm and safe. It goes well with cream colored walls and will complement most earth tones. Depending on the overall feel of the room, you may want to choose a different shade of brown. If the room is dark, you will probably want to work with a lighter, caramel shade. If it is light, you will want to go with a nice dark timbre shade. As with anything in interior design, it would be unwise to choose this color for your drape panels if brown isn't used elsewhere in the room, such as in the furniture, artwork, or pottery.

Things can get a little more creative in the bathroom. Pink and brown curtains are becoming a popular choice. Brown also contrasts well with metallic installations or teal blue walls.

Before going out and shopping for drapes, you will need to make sure that you get the right size. Take a tape measure to your window so that you can be sure you know what sizes you are looking for. When shopping around for light or dark brown curtains, it is a good idea to take photos of the room in which they are going to be installed. Bring the photos into the store and use them as a reference when you are browsing through your options. Close your eyes and visualize what they will look like in your home. While it's certainly nothing to get worked up over, don't take the decision too lightly, either. You will be looking at these color and style choices for a long time.

Don't just buy the first pair of brown curtains that look close. Be sure to shop around. Compare prices. Take photographs and show them to store workers so that they have an idea of what you are looking for. Make sure you get a chance to feel the fabric so that you know they are of the quality you are looking for. Depending on the price, you may want to ask about a warranty or a return policy.

Once you’ve purchased a pair just follow the directions to install them in your home. Many ready-made packages come with basic instructions. If you have been deliberate about every step of the process, you will be pleased with the result and your house will feel a little more like home.
