The room must have a nice decoration, reflecting the personality and style of the residents. One of the factors that will help to make this happen is the choice of curtains.
Its function goes beyond barring light, wind and giving privacy: it generates acoustic and visual comfort, balances the composition of the decoration and allows the space to gain refinement, beauty, and harmony.
The curtain for the living room is extremely necessary regardless if you live in a single house or in apartments. The curtain gives one that of coziness, comfort, and privacy to the place.
Depending on the type, color and fabric the curtain can partially or totally block the external light, leaving the environment more intimate. And, in case you want to give an even cooler climate to your room, you can also use the living room curtains along with a room lamp, for example.
When acquiring your curtain to the decorated room, it is important to remember some tips to choose the right model for you. First of all, measure all the environment that the curtain will cover, there are sizes until it covers a double right foot.
Remember that unless there is a piece of furniture under the window, the curtain must be quite long reaching the floor. The man should also be very tall, closer to the ceiling, rather than closer to the top of the window. The curtain should touch or approach very far from the floor, but should not drag on the floor, so as not to hamper the cleaning of the area.

Choice of fabric
The room is a cozy environment that can receive light and transparent materials such as voile, linen, organza, chiffon, crepes and silk straws, cotton or synthetic lace, rustic light and with a good trim.
If it is used to watch TV, there is a lot of sunlight or if your window is too exposed, a thicker material such as denim, silk, shantung or polyester, chenille, velvet, canvas, rustic silk or pure linen.
Along with the main curtain, a lining of cotton, gabardine, summer tergal, microfiber, specific meshes or blackout may be used which will serve to protect the environment and the very fabric of the excessive sun without losing the delicacy of more transparent fabric.
The color of the curtain should be in harmony with the other components of the room. The neutral colors always match better with the decor and do not mark an era. In order not to make mistakes, use white, beige or sand that are colors that enlarge and brighten the spaces, making them more pleasant.
If the walls are clear, the curtains may have a stronger color, provided no exaggeration. It should be a color that composes with the other existing so as not to leave your room inelegant and with little lightness.
By choosing to use strong colors, the precautions redouble, because sharp colors tend to fade more easily with direct sunlight. In this case, try to use simple, low-color or “tone-on-tone” prints. Stamped or high-gloss curtains are more difficult to match with the rest of the room, leaving the room feeling heavy.
