Beauty meets function in our range of natural, stylish curtains: the ultimate finishing touch for any room in the house.
Beautiful cotton curtains and drapes for a modern lifestyle
Much more than mere strips of cloth, cotton curtains are important home accessories that play a central role in the form and function of a room.
Curtains can confer a sense of harmony or act as a stunning focal point. Functionally, bedroom curtains and living room curtains keep out noise, cold and prying eyes, and play an important part in the light levels in a room when combined with lamps and other lighting.
Curtains also allow for fast and easy makeovers. Installing new cotton bedroom curtains and living room curtains can quickly revive a drab space or revamp the mood and feel of a room.
Which cotton curtains to choose
When deciding on which cotton curtains to choose, it’s first necessary to consider their intended use. This allows informed choices regarding materials, fabric density, style, and colour. Other important factors include the decor and lighting in the room. Which type of curtain pole you have, and whether you have blinds or roman blinds will affect your choice of bedroom curtains and living room curtains also.
Cotton curtains fabric density
Curtain fabric density determines how much heat, light and sound passes through the material and thus its qualities. Pay attention to the fabric used to make the bedroom curtains and living room curtains, for example, a plain cotton curtain may have a different fabric density to velvet curtains.
Sheer bedroom curtains and living room curtains, usually made from cotton, feature the least density and thus the most transparency. This breezy style is perfect for the daytime when homeowners seek both illumination and privacy.
At the other end of the spectrum are blackout curtains. Fashioned from heavy linen/cotton blends or velvet, and often with a backing, these are perfect for use as bedroom curtains. Other than ensuring complete darkness, they also muffle sound and create a cosy cocoon effect for sleeping in at the weekends.
A compromise is available in the form of mid-weight fabrics such as linen curtains.
Which colour cotton curtains to choose?
When it comes to choosing colours for bedroom curtains and living room curtains, users can either choose either colours that match existing decor and home accessories for harmony, or opt for contrasting hues to create a statement.
Colour also affects transparency. Darker shades are more suitable as bedroom curtains and rooms requiring privacy and less light, for example mauve curtains or taupe curtains would be well suited here.
For homeowners with grey walls, the choice of colour depends on the effect desired. Choosing silver curtains will result in an enhanced sense of space. White curtains work well if the room has other vibrant colours and patterns. For a happy neutral, you can never go wrong with beige curtains. URBANARA curtains come in a range of colours, such as white curtains, grey curtains, blue curtains, beige curtains, mauve curtains, silver curtains and taupe curtains, in various tones and shades.
