Where Can I Buy Nice Curtains [BETTER]

"If you're looking for a major curtain overhaul throughout your home, consider holding off for one of the major holidays that's bound to come with major sales, like Memorial Day, July 4th, or Black Friday," says Heather Goerzen, design editor at Havenly, an online interior design service. She also suggests swapping out your curtains when you want a change of color palette or something to mark a new season. "Whether it's breezy spring or cozy fall, if you're looking to welcome a change of season, consider swapping to sheer curtains or a more luxurious velvet," she says.

Although it's always nice to see and feel the materials in person, shopping online offers an impressive array of choices. "I tend to scour online and narrow down my selections. Then, I'll buy three or four options with flexible return policies so I can see the fabric, color, and design in real life," says Goerzen. Textile-focused companies like Pottery Barn, Annie Selke, Pepper Home, and Smith & Noble also offer free or inexpensive swatches. Note that custom-made curtains won't be eligible for returns, so it's best to try to at least get a sense of the fabric first.

I have their Bellino Curtains in the color Oat Cream. They are so pretty and slightly textured. They have a really nice drape to them and come in longer lengths. But this brand has so many good curtains so check their other drapes for more options.

Two Pages is amazing!!! Linen PLEATED curtains!?! For a great price? These check all the boxes. They have a lot of curtains with stellar reviews so definitely give them a look. But I must say that these linen punch pleated ones are my fave.

OMG! These Fresno curtains have a cult following and for good reason. They are inexpensive, have a slight texture, and come in that perfect not quite ivory, not quite white shade. So they are warm and really brighten up your spaces. The only problem? They sell out super quick. ALL THE TIME. But if you check back often you just might get lucky.

Aside from creating your own pinch pleat curtains, here is how to hang curtains so they look good. There are no rules in decorating, but this is my personal preference and also what I see all the popular interior designers doing as well.

Easy to buy: We found a lot of custom-made blackout drapes, which can start at $500 a panel and take a while to have made. We looked for more affordable options and also for curtains that are consistently available. To make sure the curtains we recommend will stay in stock, we mainly focused on retailers selling the same styles year after year.

In 2017, we tested 13 curtains, and in 2019 we tested 11 (including retests of our original picks). I examined every curtain for construction and fabric quality, then photographed how much light came through each curtain.

The West Elm Linen Cotton curtains, our former upgrade pick, were the best of the natural fiber curtains I tested in 2017 for blocking out light, but when I retested a new panel in 2019 they were the worst of all the curtains I tried. They also only come in white.

Choosing the right curtain rod for heavy curtains is essential, as it will ensure that the weight of the curtains does not cause the rod to bend or break. For thicker, bulkier curtains, heavy-duty curtain rods are typically the best option. These types of rods are specifically designed to withstand the weight of heavy drapery materials.

Drapery Rods Direct has a variety of options in varying sizes and colors. When selecting the size, consider both the length of your window and the fullness of your curtains. We have many options to choose from including Cord-Draw Rods, Baton-Draw Rods, and Traverse Drapery Rods.

Shower curtains are available in a variety of materials, including cotton, vinyl and polyester or microfibre. The material you choose for your curtain will have an impact on the design of your bathroom.

Vinyl shower curtains are a universally popular option for being cheap and low-maintenance compared to cloth alternatives. These curtains can be cleaned easily and are available in a variety of colours and patterns, making them simple to coordinate with bathroom decor.

Vinyl naturally repels water, so a build-up of harmful mould and mildew are less of an issue. Also, if you plan on regularly decorating or updating your bathroom style on a budget, vinyl curtains are perfect for its low cost.

Unlike vinyl curtains, polyester shower dividers will have a fabric-look while being heavier, which will work best if well if your shower has higher water pressure. Due to their weight, be sure your rail is sturdy enough to support them.

While they can be more expensive, cotton is generally a good choice for your shower curtain. Cotton curtains can be the most durable and are also the easiest to wash, but must be done each month. Due to their fabric and look, cotton shower curtains can a more luxurious feel to your bathroom.

However, not all shower curtains are designed to sit outside or your bath, some are designed to sit within your bath. Therefore, when choosing a shower curtain you should always measure up before purchasing.

Decorative curtains often have a pattern or texture which helps them spruce-up a room and may be made out of higher quality fabrics. If you are going with a cotton shower curtain, you can fit a patterned divider in any bathroom. They can be a good choice for a guest room if you want to make more of a statement.

Hookless shower curtains which have grommet holes simply require the rail to be slipped through. This creates a seamless, contemporary look that can cut down on price due to the lack of curtain hooks or rings. Perfect for modern-styled bathrooms, these curtains come in a variety of patterns and colours, some including a built-in lining.

If you've splurged on high-quality curtains for your home, the next step to ensuring a clean finish is purchasing a durable and attractive curtain rod. The best ones are made from sturdy materials like metal or wood and can support even the heaviest curtains easily.

The majority of Lowe's curtain rods are made of durable steel which is great for those looking to hang heavy curtains. The retailer also offers curtain rods in multi-packs of two to four rods, which can come in handy if you're looking to outfit multiple rooms.

According to Jones, a quality rod will not bend, even when it's holding up heavier curtains. Look for durable materials like steel and brass, as well as solid wood. Cheaper metals and plastic should be avoided if you want your curtain rods to last a long time.

All sizes are stated WIDTH (left to right) by LENGTH (top to bottom). The width of rod pocket or grommet top curtains is stated as the flat-out width. You would never use the curtain flat out, so keep in mind that a 60" wide panel will not look good if you try to cover a 60" window with it. You need to provide fullness by using multiple panels for a window that size. Certain rod pocket curtains are used "flat out", or close to it, and we will state that in the product description. On most curtains & window treatments, it takes two to three times more material/curtain to provide the proper fullness in appearance when installed/hanging on your rod than the actual window width.

Measure the width of the rod from left to right. A common rule for displaying curtains properly says the curtains finished width should be at least 2 times the width of your window (if not more) to achieve a look of proper fullness.

Example: If your window measures 36" wide (window width x 2 = 72"), you need curtains that will give a minimum width of 72". In this case 2 panels will give about 100" to 120" of width which will look nice and full. Always round up to the next full number.

Measure the length of the window or area you are covering from top to bottom. Overall curtain length, anywhere from the sill to the apron or to the floor, is a personal preference and need not be exact.

Using the Storslagen double curtain rod set from IKEA, I slung up a sheer curtain I already owned on the first rod and layered my new blackout curtains over them on the second rod. Voila. The best of both worlds.

I chose a deep navy color because I wanted a little extra light-blocking power, but these curtains also come in pearl, stone, taupe, gray, coal, brown and black. No word on how well the other colors block the light but I assume the darker tones will do an equally good job.

The photos above are from my BFF's apartment. She and I share a gaudy goth aesthetic and when we were hunting for curtains for her home these were an obvious choice. She originally got the black for her bedroom and loved them so much she ended up grabbing the gold for the living room (which was a slightly less spooky color for a room she shares with her perky roommate). Both purchases have shown us that the shop's quality is top-notch and consistent. I highly recommend these! And FYI, Zen Creatives is another great shop in LA!
