“The better choice you make, the happier your life can be.”
Beautiful curtains can be soothing to the eyes and senses. But wouldn’t it be good if the curtains you choose are not only attractive but can also enhance your life. Today, “Siangthai & Sons” will present to you, 5 tips on how to choose curtains based on Feng Shui principles. Let’s go take a look.
Curtains control the amount of light.
The benefits of curtains are to help control the amount of light in a room and create an ambiance according to your needs. A home that promotes both physical and mental health should have adequate lighting. If there is too much light, the air in the house will become too hot and stuffy. While on the other hand, if there is insufficient lighting, the house will become damp and uncomfortable. Therefore, appropriate curtains should be chosen to suit the room. It would be able to provide just the right amount of light filtering, i.e. not too much nor too little.
Choose curtain colors that match the wall.
Did you know that the color tone of the room affects the well-being of that particular room? The color of the walls should suit the user’s gender, age, and use. For example, soft color tones that are soothing to the eyes should be used for the children’s room, while white, light gray, or non-reflective colors should be applied to the working space. This principle should also be applied when choosing curtain colors for each room. Curtain colors should be chosen to match the color tone of the wall so that you can fully enjoy the ambiance of each room.
Patterns and designs are not just a matter of style.
Of course, the choice of curtain patterns or designs, or even its thickness, depends mainly on the individual style of the owner of the room. However, one thing that should be kept in mind is the ambiance and its usage. For instance, for a small room, choosing thick solid colored curtains adorned with patterns may make the room look cramped and stuffy.
Also Pay Close Attention to its Care and Maintenance
The curtains you choose will stay on your window for many years to come. Therefore, you should pay close attention to its care and maintenance. You should choose fabrics that are easy to clean and good for your own personal well-being. For example, if you are allergic to dust, you should choose polyesters or types of glossy fabrics, as they tend to attract less dust and are easy to care for.
Make a note of the orientation of the house and the window openings.
Which way does the light enter the house? How much your home is exposed to humidity and wind depends entirely on the orientation of the house and its window openings. Therefore, curtains should be chosen with these factors in mind. For example, if you want to install bedside curtains on windows facing east, the bedroom will be receiving a lot of light, therefore, you should use curtains that can control the amount of light in the room properly. It should be able to block out light efficiently for you to sleep comfortably.
