To use curtains or not to use curtains? This has been a constant question for many of us throughout the years of decorating and redecorating our home. Using the correct pattern and fabric can make all the difference in the way a room is displaced. Curtains have the ability to completely change the aesthetics of a room by simply switching their pattern or fabric feel. If you are undecided on if you really want to have curtains in your home, consider one of these statement pieces they could be exactly what your room need for a completely new upgrade.
If you want to go the extra mile and have a bold living space that screams modern adding multiple different patterned pieces with a similar color scheme is the way to go. Your patterned curtains do not need to be one solid pattern, in fact, you can actually mix and match them as well.
Nothing says, “I’m Here” like a pair of patterned curtains that completely draw your attention. If the room you are upgrading needs a bold piece patterned curtains are the way to go. Use a pattern that really catches your attention, such as Chevron, stripes or even floral print. These patterns will bring out the rest of your décor and add to the space instead of overwhelming it.
Match Your Curtains to Your Furniture
Although these curtains do have a pattern they make a statement that is very subtle because of how well the furniture matches with the curtain design. The color scheme also plays a big role in how well this the colors and furniture blend together.
Looking to make a statement without adding additional color? Match your curtains to your furniture. The color of your curtains should be the same as the color sofa or any furniture you have in the space. Doing so will add a powerful statement while still being somewhat understated.
Neutral Is a Go To
Neutral does not mean boring. In fact, neutral actually means classic and elegant. If a bold room is not of appeal to you add a patterned wallpaper to the room matched with neutral curtains for the perfect blend. This allows you to have a tiny peek of boldness with the wallpaper while still having the richness of bold curtains.
Colors and patterns are always fun. However, when you want to enhance a space having a touch of neutral can do the trick. Neutral curtains are an excellent way to add an undercover neutral tone in your colorful world. Choose curtains with a neutral print for a twist on your pop of neutral.
Sheer is Always In
Sheer curtains come in numerous different colors not just white. It may seem like the most popular sheer tone may be white. However, on the contrary sheer curtains in a darker tone could be exactly what a room needs. Although the sheer curtains are darker in tone they still give the softness that a sheer curtain provides.
Sheer curtains have always been preferred for a beach themed home a home on the beach as they are airy and light. However, they work well with any space and any décor as they essentially do not add weight or an additional décor piece. Instead, they add an interesting visual to your windows. In a dark colored room, sheer curtains are an excellent addition. They bring in light exactly where you need it.

Gray curtains work beautifully in a monochromatic space. They can be subtle enough to not disrupt your décor while still being bold. Gray is a great color to pair with any décor as it is considered a neutral but with a twist. They twist being its hint of darkness. We prefer a darker gray when it comes to curtains as it works better in multiple different spaces. Whereas lighter grays work best in rooms that have a lighter color scheme.
Touch of Red

Yellow is a powerful color. Therefore, don’t be surprised if you fall in love with having such a bold color in your home after you have yellow curtains. Pair it with simple other items in the room for a greater contrast.
Yellow may seem like the last color you may want to include in any specific room. However, it can be quite the contrary. Yellow has a way of bringing out the best in neutrals. Therefore, instead of being a “loud” color it actually becomes soft and mellow when it is paired with soft colors that are almost neutral.
Drastic and Dramatic
Ombre doesn’t always need to be in your face and with a huge contrast between each other. It can be quite the opposite. You can have ombre curtains that only give a hint of color and blend in simultaneously into the decor. Blue and white are excellent when it comes to bringing color with the perfect blend.
Bold is very much in. Nothing screams bold quite like having ombre colored curtains. Although they are not popular to have, they are an excellent conversation and statement piece. Consider having ombre colored curtains that blend perfectly into each other by selecting colors that are bold as well as easy to decorate around.
White curtains can also be fun if you add a pattern to them. It does not need to be a bold pattern. Instead, it can be a soft pattern in a soft scheme that allows the white color to shine through. Ensure the rest of the room is mostly white for a clean, and crisp appearance.
