Choosing The Right Curtain

Colour and Light

When it comes to choosing the colour for your curtains, it is slightly more complicated than picking a hue that complements the rest of your home. One also has to consider the natural reflective properties of a colour and how it deals with filtering sunlight. Light colours like white, ivory and creams have the tendency to reflect sunlight which helps keep the heat out. Darker colours like blacks and greys, on the other hand, have a tendency to absorb both light and heat which makes space feel more cocooning but at the cost of excess heat.

If you are really keen on a darker coloured curtain, opt for ones with an extra layer of lining to help better insulate against the heat.
