Pick the correct drapes and you can transform a basic room into something extraordinary. But what establishes the “right” curtains? Here, we’re absolutely talking about shades and tones, dim versus light hues; each offering its very own novel advantages. The shading you pick will be driven by personal inclination and the theme of the room they’re bound for, however different things to consider are the dimensions of the room and its windows, and how much light comes in those windows. Let’s go through a couple of pros and cons of dim versus light shaded curtain fabrics.
LIGHT SHADED CURTAINS
- An immortal look! Light hued window curtains, particularly whites and neutrals, will never go out of style.
- Experience how enormous a space feels with lighter blinds.
- Light shaded window curtains are bound to be made of lightweight drapery, which fall and stream perfectly.
- Lighter colors are easily dyed for an easy way to revamp your room in future.
- More likely to show up dust or stains they get to perform better in rooms without high traffic.
DARK SHADED CURTAINS
- Dark shaded curtains work very well in spacious insides or high-ceiling rooms to give the space a cozier vibe. Repeat the shade of the drapes elsewhere in the room so they don’t look out of place.
- Dark curtains lend a sense of drama, contrast and elegance to a room and, when utilized right, can be very welcoming.
- Dark curtains don’t let dirt and dust flash on them like light colored curtains will, so a good choice for high traffic areas.
- Overpowering in little rooms.
- Considered a dangerous design consideration, if you don’t get the color right, as darker curtains are more visually dominating, it’s more likely to ruin the room’s aesthetic than a lighter color that isn’t desirable.
