Choosing Curtain Fabric

Curtains are available in nearly every fabric type, from light and sheer to heavy and thick, ideal for a number of different window treatment ideas.

Sheer Curtains

Sheer Fabric Curtains

These lightweight curtains complement decor without overwhelming it. They allow light to shine through, giving your room an airy feel. Pair with a heavyweight curtain to achieve a layered look.

Medium-Weight Curtains

Medium-Weight Fabric Curtains

Fabrics like cotton provide moderate levels of light filtration. To maintain privacy while still letting outside light in, choose curtains in this category.

Heavy Curtains

Heavy-Weight Fabric Curtains

Velvet and other heavy-weight fabrics deliver a formal look. These curtains are perfect for providing extra privacy and insulation.

Blackout Curtains

Blackout Curtains

These heavy-duty curtains not only block out light, but also create a sound barrier to protect against outside noises.

Thermal Curtains

Thermal Curtains

The thermal backing on these curtains works year round. In the summer, the curtains keep cool air in your home and hot air outside. Conversely, these window panels block cold winter air from coming in while keeping warm air in your home.

Curtain Color, Prints and Patterns

To blend your window treatments with your decor, choose curtains that are a few shades darker than your wall color. If you'd like to create contrast, pick a bold color that will complement your decorating scheme. Prints and patterns are another great option when creating a focal point - just make sure they don't clash with your furniture. If you own patterned couches, rugs or bedding, a solid curtain is your best bet.
