Tips for Choosing which type of curtains are best for Bedroom

Curtains make a significant difference in the look and feel of your bedroom. Well made curtains provide privacy and block out light. They also add style and personality to your space. It can be overwhelming to decide which curtains are right for your bedroom. In this blog post, I will explore factors to consider when choosing bedroom curtains. The post will also look at helpful tips to help you make the best decision.

Factors to Consider


You may live in a town centre with a busy road or street with street lights shining near your bedroom window. Traffic could pass close throughout the evening, night and early morning. Is there a nearby restaurant or shop with people walking by?

You may want to consider blackout curtains with an added layer of interlining. The interlining will help with the outside noise. Blackout lining for light control.

If you have a ground floor bedroom adding a sheer curtain along with a blackout solid would work well. The sheer giving some daytime privacy and with cosy blackout curtains for the night.

Do you enjoy being woken by the natural sunlight? opt for lined or standard lined. Thermal interlining can also be added to standard lined curtains.

Who uses and sleeps in the room

Nursery/Childrens Room.

Blackout lined curtains are a perfect choice for a nursery or Childs bedroom. Printed cotton fabrics featuring fun designs, stripes and plains will always work. Add a fun boarder or trim to make the curtains unique. An extra layer of interlining for luxury, cosiness and warmth. Pinch pleat headings with button detail or a simple pencil pleat relaxed look.

Master bedroom

A room to relax and unwind. Calming fabrics could be your bedroom choice. Neutral or grey colours with pinch pleat headings. Windows dressed with both sheer and solid curtains offer daytime privicy and give an airy relaxed feel to the room. Puddle your curtains for a more luxurious look. Add tie backs to soften.

Holiday Let Bedrooms

Always add a blackout lining, guests will want to be assured they will have a good nights sleep. Use fabrics that are hard wearing and can be easily wiped clean.

Guest bedroom

A guest bedroom may double up as home office or homework station area. Blackout curtains could be teamed with a sheer blind

Size and Length

  • Measure the size of your windows to determine the appropriate curtain width and length.

  • Consider the height of your ceilings when choosing the length of your curtains.

  • Hang the pole or track as high a possible or from the ceiling in some cases create an illusion of taller ceilings.

  • Curtain stacks clearing the window or door reveal allow most light to the room.

  • clearing the window reveal also creates an illusion of wider windows.

  • Longer curtains can create an illusion of taller ceilings and add a touch of elegance to the room.

Fabric and Texture

  • Choose a fabric that suits the style and mood of your bedroom.

  • I always suggest blackout curtains for bedrooms. Blackout lining darkens the bedroom.

  • Add Lighter fabrics like sheer or linen curtains on a double rail for daytime privicy. Allowing more natural light to filter through. Creating an airy and relaxed atmosphere.

  • add a layer of interlining for a luxury look and insulation for the room

Color and Pattern

  • Consider the colour scheme of your bedroom when selecting curtain colors.

  • Neutral colors like white, beige, or grey blend with any decor style and create a calming ambiance.

  • Curtains with vibrant hues or eye-catching patterns add a pop of colour or bold statement.

  • add cosy cushions to beds to compliment your curtains

Coordinate with Existing Decor

  • Take into account the existing furniture, bedding, and wall colors in your bedroom.

  • Choose curtains that complement or contrast with the colour scheme and style of your bedroom.

  • Tailored curtain headings finish the look of your curtains.

Experiment with Different Styles

  • Explore various heading styles, eyelet, pinch pleat, pencil pleat or a wave. Find the one that suits your taste and complements your bedroom decor.

  • Use single pinch pleat, wave or eyelet headings for modern houses.

  • Double, triple or pencil pleat suit traditional style bedrooms.


Choosing bedroom curtains involves considering factors such as size, fabric, colour, and pattern. Take into account the functionality and coordinating with existing decor. Curtains not only enhance the look of your bedroom. They provide the desired level of privacy, light control and insulation. Personalise your bedroom by looking at different styles. Think about colour and texture to create a bedroom that reflects your unique style and personality.
