Which Window Treatments Are Right for You?
Discover which window treatments are best for your space when you browse the new collection from west elm and Pottery Barn Teen. This collaboration between two brands you already love lets you pick the most modern curtains from a capsule collection that defines your room as all your own.
Choose the opacity of your curtains. Opacity refers to how thick or sheer the panels are. For instance, blackout curtains are completely opaque, but breezy curtains with the texture of gauze might be more your style if you want to let in lots of sunlight.
Next, consider how you want your curtains to hang. Classic choices include tab tops, grommets, tie tops that include pretty bows or a pocket top that leaves the rod invisible within the curtain.
Pick a length that works for you. Modern curtains look best long and gathered with a slight pool of fabric on the floor.
Choosing a Look For Modern Curtains
Select the look of your curtains based on the aesthetic in the rest of your room or personal space, whether it's the study, kid's lounge or game room.
Look for the lustrous shine of cotton-velvet curtains to showcase a pearlescent look that catches the light from outside or from your favorite lamps and light fixtures.
Some teens love the depth and movement that you get with pom poms or appliqué. The dimension you get from these techniques adds personal flair to your room.
Choose linen if you love classic or preppy styles, but also want a touch of bohemian texture. Linen is made from the flax plant, so this material has an earthy appeal that looks good anywhere.
Styling Curtains For Any Window
When deciding how to style your curtains, look to fine design tips to get it right. Allow the bottom of your modern curtains to drape on the floor ever so slightly. Floor-length drapes deserve accent table and table lamps nearby. Place the floor lamps across the room where the longer lines balance the lines of the curtains throughout your space.
