You've got to ask yourself, how do you want your room to make you feel?
If your room is used for a lot of family time, such as the Kitchen, Living or Dining Room, you might want to look at warm greys. There are many ways to bring colour into a room, through Blinds, Drapes, Cushions, Throws, Upholstery fabrics, Feature walls, and paintings.
Once you choose your mood, it is time to look at colour schemes, here are the basics,
According to The Color Scheme Bible by Anna Starmer:
Pink: fun, lively, positive and feminine
Red: passionate, daring, intimate, comforting, stimulates appetite
Orange: stimulates creativity, evokes warmth and coziness
Yellow: welcoming, sunny, and linked to promoting intelligence
Green: tranquil, invigorating, restful and balancing
Blue: clear thinking, calm, meditative
Violet: stimulating, sexy; blue-violets are cooling, spiritual
Maximise your heating efficiency by adding thermal lining to your curtains. Thermal lining can also be utilised to reduce outside noise and unwanted light.
Block-out lined curtains reduce natural light and UV rays, providing an ideal solution for darkening a bedroom, perfect if you're a shift worker. They also offer excellent sound insulation and thermal properties.
Interlining is the layer of fabric between the main fabric and lining. To increase the insulating properties of your curtains a light to medium weight interlining can be added. Interlining is ideal for increasing thermal performance and reducing noise. If you are specifically looking to reduce noise, our european bumph lining can also be used as an interlining.
Hanging cords of any kind are a strangulation safety concern for children or playful toddlers. When window cords are within reach, it takes only a few seconds for a young child to be accidentally tangled. Infants placed in cribs near windows may be able to grasp a dangling window cord unintentionally wrapping it around their neck. Tragically, nearly a dozen children die a year from window cord accidents.
This is a specially designed cord attachment system with spring tension and bracket that improves the safety of cord-looped products.
For inside mounts, the cord tensioner can be attached directly to the window by running a screw directly through the hole in the tensioner, or to the clear bracket that comes with it. For outside mount shades or shadings, the clear outside mount bracket is used.
For window treatments operating with a cord loop, a cord tensioner also keep cords taut and prevent them from twisting and tangling.
