Gorgeous Curtain Designs That Enhance the Beauty of Your Windows.
New windows look gorgeous on any home, especially when you take advantage of all the new features and materials now available. For the finishing touch, a modern curtain will complete the design and get the exact look you need.
In order to thoroughly enhance the beauty of your windows there are some points to bear in mind. The following are the most important issues that you will want to think about before making your final decision.
Choosing the Right Color
The first issue to consider is around the color of curtains that you choose. If you decide that you want them to blend in smoothly with the walls then pick curtains that are just a couple of shades darker than the walls.
The alternative approach is to go for a color that contrasts with the overall design of the room. In this case, you might want to pick the same tone as an object in the room, such as a rug or sofa.
Don’t forget that different colors are best suited to different rooms, so take some time to consider the overall feel that you want to achieve in the room in question when choosing your color inspiration.
If you choose light curtains then the sun shining through them is going to add their color to the room as well. In this way, warm colors will add warmth and life to a room.
Get the Right Material
The material used in your curtains will also have a big effect on how it looks and feels. For instance, in a more formal room then a material such as silk or velvet works wonders in creating an elegant mood instantly.
For a less formal look you could consider dressing up your windows with curtains made out of lighter materials like linen or cotton. These are excellent at giving a light and breezy look while looking great.
Another issue to bear in mind is that of the washing and cleaning of your curtains. The heavier fabrics can be difficult and time-consuming to clean, often needing a trip to the local dry cleaners to do it properly.
Of course, there is nothing to stop you from having more than one set of curtains for a room, made from different fabrics. This will allow you to alter the mood and style of the room instantly whenever you want to do so.
If you have got fantastic new windows from Hugo Carter then you will want show them off to their best by adding beautiful curtains that match your style and personality. After all, great windows are there to be seen and to add style to the home.
So, will this means going for a plain design or something that has a pattern on it? There are so many curtain designs around that it can be a tough choice to make.
This is an issue that comes down very much to personal taste. However, if you want a timeless and elegant look then plain curtains or ones with a subtle design are probably best.
If you are after a cute of homely feel then you may go for a colourful pattern. This type of curtain is particularly popular in rooms such as kid’s bedrooms and kitchens, turning it into a warmer and more welcoming place to spend some time in.
You will also want to take into account the furnishings and decoration already in the room. For example, it the room has busy looking furniture patterns then you will probably want to go for solid color curtains.
Add the perfect finishing touch to any room by choosing curtains that set off your windows in the best possible way. If you’re seeking to spruce up your kids bedrooms, you may want to check out more ideas for decorating their rooms here!

I never realized how important curtains can be! Style really does have an impact!
Your curtains are really pretty! I just have blinds on my sliders. Im in an apt so I dont need nice curtains.
All I have covering my windows are blinds. I really need to get some new curtains and you have given my a lot of great advice. Now I have an idea of how to look for curtains for my windows….
Sometimes I plan a room color and theme buy the curtains that I have picked out.
Really classic and lovely
I looked at the Hugo Carter website & there are some attractive windows! Even noise reduction ones – which is awesome! Curtains can really make the mood of the room! Thin material lets the light in, thick ones can also keep the temperatures out. I’m not the best decorator. I favor blinds. I have vertical & horizontal blinds. They look awesome! It just proves that everyone has their own styles & tastes. So to me, there is no right & wrong where a person’s home is concerned!
I love this alcove.
Those are some beautiful curtains. I would love to have some.

The design of the curtains is great. It would let a lot of light come in filtered by the curtains. I do like to usually be able to see outside though at all times.
I love the curtains color and design. We are looking for a way to redesign our cubby on the second floor and I think something gold and burgundy would be great.

Great info and suggestions. I have a similar window treatment and the best thing is I can make it look formal or informal easily.
That design is so beautiful. I recently put up a 3 tier layered look in my living room and it took me two hours.
Like your post, curtains are important. They give you privacy from what is outside. I think curtains make a house warm and also cozy. It’s important to pick something you want to live with for a long time, because curtains can be pricey.
