The sun in the house4 aspects to consider when choosing curtains
When furnishing a house, curtains are often given little importance, but they are an essential decorative element. They determine the atmosphere and the amount of light in a space as well as providing privacy.

There are four aspects to be assessed:

1.Colour

For small rooms we recommend the colour white, it will make the space brighter and seem larger. If, on the other hand, the room is large, you can play with bright colours to match the surrounding furnishings.

2.Fabric transparency

The weight of a fabric determines the amount of light that will pass through its weave. For living areas we recommend you choose light curtains to get more light, on the contrary for sleeping areas you could use a heavier fabric, also to give you more privacy. Or you could decide to use a two-layer curtain and by tying one layer or the other modulate the light in the room. 

3.Length

There are lengths for every type of window, be it a single window, French window or glass window. One trick to make the room appear taller is to use curtains that skim the floor.

4.Type of attack

Before buying, check the type of attachment you need, otherwise you will find it impossible to use them! Most people use sticks, in which case there are three possible attachments: lanyards, loops and hidden loops. The lanyard attachment allows you to tie the curtain at the height you prefer, button loops are the easiest attachment to use and the hidden loop attachment is the most elegant and understated.
