    I'm always surprised by how many people spend a lot of time and money decorating their living rooms but then opt for curtains that don't really represent what's inside. Not to say that you need to go with the curtains in your living room to be exactly what I would pick, since different styles of decoration can work well together. But when it comes down to the different materials used in different types of drapes, there is one material that tends to dominate the rest, which happens to be silk or some type of high-quality polyester blend, often two or more colors.

    Good curtains for a living room are ones that aren't too formal, as usually people use a living room for more social occasions than they would their hallway, office, bedroom, or dining room. Light coloured curtains also work well in an open-plan home because it diffuses light during the daytime and at night time helps shield the family from any outside streetlights.You don't want to use heavy or lined curtains in this space because you want them to be quick and easy rolled up and down as people come into your house. Interior designers recommend lightweight cloth materials in soft colours such as cream or pastel orange if you have large windows on one side of your walls.

    There are a lot of factors that go into determining what curtains look best in a living room. Curtain size, drapery rod height, natural light exposure--all these things play a part in how precisely one can make the decision. But what is certain? Something nice to pull the feel of your living room together is key.
    I am an interior designer and have some ideas about what might work best. First of all, I'll give you my opinion on the popular checkerboard fabric--it's not exactly as versatile here in America because it requires more contrast for its pattern to show up well against the wall or window behind it (especially when those surfaces are partitioned with half-rounds).

    There are so many different curtains out there that can be hard to figure out which is best for your situation. Some people like the block-out curtains if they have an aggressive sleep schedule, others prefer sheer curtains for more natural light. Ultimately it comes down to what works in your home and how you want to use your space. One option I recommend is blinds on the window if you're looking for something low profile and inexpensive but still functional or valances/sheers/panels if natural light is important and you'd like a little privacy but not total darkness at night when people come into wake up refreshed.

    The best curtains for a living room are usually canvas ones, because they can be washed easily and dry quickly. It is also important to select one that doesn't pinch your fingers or cause harmful heat from excess fabric when you're pulling it acrosss the rod.
