When choosing fabrics, be sure to consider the orientation of your windows. South-facing windows, good light, and tulle, thin cotton or silk fabrics are more suitable. North-facing rooms are often cold and gray, and warm-colored and heavy curtains should be selected to increase the temperature. If your home has windows facing east or west, shading is the most important use of curtains. Shading curtains can not only block strong light, but also maintain the brightness of the room, making full use of natural light to illuminate the room.

East or west-facing rooms will be stimulated by strong sunlight for several hours a day. Use specially treated fabrics, or neutral-colored fabrics, otherwise the color will fade or change color, preferably with some insulation performance.

Accurate measurement can not only predict the purchase amount of fabrics, but also make the curtains more beautiful in details. It is recommended to use a metal ruler to measure, whether you choose rail installation or curtain rod, the hem of the curtain should be 15 cm above the window sill. There should be 15-20 cm more than the window itself on both sides of the curtain, so that it looks good. When measuring the width, do not measure the window itself, but the curtain rod or track. If it is a curtain that is open on both sides, remember that you need to reserve an overlap in the middle, about 2.5 cm. The length of the curtain needs to be determined according to the position of the hem. If it is on the window sill, the distance should be 1.25 cm, and the distance under the window sill should be 15 cm. The hem of the floor-to-ceiling style should be 1.5 cm on the ground.
