Curtains for bedrooms guarantee a more cozy and comfortable atmosphere, in addition to the interior design and maintenance of the privacy of this more intimate area of ​​the house.

Small in decorating the living room and bedroom, the curtains can fulfill many roles in one environment, they serve for different purposes, from controlling the brightness that comes into the room to how much like an object of decoration.


Choosing a bedroom curtain is not the easiest task as there are many fabric options, finishes, and other details that, when strategically thought out, can have a much more decorative effect on your surroundings. By rethinking, we separate some tips to make your project a little easier, without worries or surprises:

Curtain for bedroom: pay attention to window measures

In order to know the final size of the curtain, you have to remember that you have to leave a “residue” of fabric in relation to the size of the window, so that even in windy weather your curtain covers the window and avoids much clarity and also the aesthetic standard is adequate to guarantee.

There are two types of calculations that can help you find the ideal curtain size for your environment. for light fabrics, multiply the window size and window size by 2, or for heavier or heavier fabrics, multiply by 3. Below are two examples of how to calculate the curtain size:

  1. Window size + 20 cm (right side) + 20 cm (left side) =? x 2 = ideal curtain size. Example: 1.20 m (window) + 20 cm (right side) + 20 cm (left side) = 1.60 mx 2 = 3.20 m of fabric;
  2. Window size + 20 cm (right side) + 20 cm (left side) =? x 3 = ideal curtain size. Example: 1.20 m (window) + 20 cm (right side) + 20 cm (left side) = 1.60 mx 3 = 4.80 m of fabric;

Check the space in the ceiling and wall to decide how much height and support to use in your curtain

Another important decision is what type of support is best for your project. Human or rail? If the trimmer is part of the ceiling structure of the room, then the rails are embedded in the plaster finish, which gives a super stylish effect. The rod is an easy to install and clean option and has many finishing options such as chrome, gold, wood.

Usually the height of the curtain extends above the wall, that is, from ceiling to floor. In this way, the right foot is lengthened and the environment becomes more comfortable. The short curtains are best combined with environments that have furniture under the window or in children’s rooms as they add a relaxed feel to the environment.

Types of colors and possible textures

Remember that neutral colors give more freedom to decorate a more colorful environment, while the more vibrant and colorful tones add joy and personality to the environment.

It’s important to note that darker, more intense tones usually fade over time with sunlight, so you should also consider the intensity of the light entering the room when determining the colors of the curtain.

The heavier or overlapping fabrics are ideal for the cooler months of the year as they warm up the environment and reduce the feeling of “emptiness” in the environment that sometimes occurs during the cold.

Even when choosing the most complete fabrics or printing, the neutral background should be appreciated and left as a scarf. So the highlight of the color or print are just more punctual details that harmonize the curtain with the surroundings with a lighter decor.

Main types of curtain

  • Blinds : a kind of practical curtain that allows better control of the luminosity that enters the environment. The two most common types of roller blinds are roller blind, a type of blind made of woven fabric that is rolled up as it shrinks, and roman, which is made of blades and is mainly found in PVC, wood, bamboo and aluminum.
  • Blackout : This type of curtain is made of a thicker material and has the function of blocking the entry of light while increasing the soundproofing of the surrounding area. In the bedroom, the blackout curtain is ideal for increasing the quality of sleep because it ensures that the “darkness” lasts until you wake up. In the past, many people have had problems with the “plasticized” effect of the fabric on this curtain, but today there are several options for blackout curtains made with lighter fabrics and in different colors.
  • Voal curtain : This is the classic curtain model that can be used either alone or in conjunction with a type of liner and / or a thicker cover. Its texture can inspire sophistication and simplicity in the same setting.
  • Curtains made of serge, velvet, linen or shantung : Fuller fabrics are highly recommended for dormitories because they increase the feeling of cosiness, and you can also find a variety of textured effects in each of them.
