Whether you like the breezy attitude of translucent curtain or crave cave-like darkness in your room, your search for the best source for curtains in Canada has brought you the right place. Browse our huge offering to find the perfect fit for your home. Ranging from the lightest sheers to the darkest blackout curtains and from cheap curtains to something a little more lux, there’s something for every decor and every budget.
Think about what you need your curtains to do for you. If it’s privacy you’re after but don’t need total darkness, try a lightweight fabric that will keep peering eyes out but let sunlight in. If you want them for their insulating capabilities, go for a heavier weight fabric with thermal properties. If you want your room to be darker than dark, check out our wide variety of blackout curtains.
To create a relaxed look, hang the curtain in light shades and natural textures. Airy, casual fabrics like linen, cotton and sheers will move with the breeze to impart a fuss-free attitude in any room. For a more classic or formal effect, heavier weight curtains made with velvet or jacquard prints will up the luxury factor in your interior. Layer curtain with a double rod to further enhance the opulence and increase styling opportunities.
So how do you hang them? The smallest misstep in hanging curtains can take the final look from likes to yikes! Choosing the right length for your room and hanging them properly is essential, so always take measurements before you buy any curtains. Available in a variety of lengths, we’ve got options to fit standard windows, rooms with very high ceilings and everything in between.
If you have short or average ceilings, make things look taller by hanging your curtains high. Even just half a foot will draw the eye vertically and elongate the room’s appearance.
A decorators’ rule of thumb is that curtains are their most stylish when they are long enough to puddle ever so slightly on the floor or at least graze it. In higher-traffic rooms where your floors are likely to be mess magnets, you might want to have your curtains not touch the floor at all. If your windows are small, it's perfectly acceptable to have the bottoms of your curtains hit the windowsill.
If your room doesn’t get a lot of light, buy a curtain rod that’s quite a bit wider than your window frame so that when your curtains are pushed back, they won’t get in the way of Mr. Sun and you’ll still get a polished look. This is also a great trick for window treatments that are strictly decorative.
With these pro tips and all the choices you could ever need, it’ll be simple to create your own wow in every room of the house.
