1. Evaluate the space available
First of all, when we have to choose the perfect color for an environment, we have to stop and think about the space to dress. How big is it or, conversely, how small is it? Based on the answer we will give the reference palette will vary. Because, you know, colors are our best allies and not just on the walls! They are able to optically enlarge or narrow a space even when it comes to fabrics and, for that, we can’t go wrong.
Then if you enjoy a large square footage in elegant and sensual colors such as gray and blue but be careful not to prefer them if it is a small corner study or room with little light. In the latter case, let in as much natural light as possible with light fabrics and delicate shades. Let’s move on to the second tip.
2. Determine the style
To choose the color of the curtains, measurements are important, but the style of the environment in which you want to place them also plays a fundamental role. Usually they are the last touch that is given to a room: if you have a classic, modern or minimal furniture, the reference colors will vary.

Just start with the three primary colors: blue, red and yellow and combine them through the secondary ones – orange, green and purple – and tertiary ones, experimenting relationships with similar shades. Familiarizing yourself with them will guide you in the perfect choice and in balancing warm and cold colors.
4. Protect privacy
The color of the curtains will also change according to the room that will host them. A curtain in the kitchen will have a different value than one in the bathroom or one in the bedroom because here the curtain will also protect your privacy. And who among us does not try to defend it as we can?
At home it starts right from here, from your curtains: choose light and transparent only for the study and the living room where they will create the right atmosphere and filter the necessary light but prefer thicker fabrics and warm colors in the other rooms: they will grant you the right privacy and perfect relaxation.
5. Choose the ideal model
The model you prefer also weighs on the choice of the ideal color for your curtains. The simplest solution that is well suited to any style of furniture is the glass curtain, followed by the package suitable for more modern environments and therefore with more decisive colors, with panels, Venetian blinds or with rings. The color will match the model and your needs for brightness, privacy and intensity. Make your choice!
