Just knowing that you can spend as little as $30 or well into hundreds of dollars will help you orient yourself before you begin. Just remember that you don’t have to spend top dollar to get some awesome drapes.
Take inventory of your decor – When you are adding drapes and curtains to your windows, you have to first take time to look at the decor of the room. Are your colors bright and vibrant or earth toned and subdued? Whatever mode your room is in can be enhanced or destroyed – by the drapes you choose. If you are designing a room for the first time, awesome. The world is your oyster.
You can add elegance, or create vibrancy, but consider the decor before shopping to minimize surprises. Determine how many window coverings you need, which you’ll need to bounce against your budget.
Take your time – It’s likely that your drapes will be around for at least a few years. There are a lot of various colors and designs available, too so unless you are already quite sure of the style and colors you want, you should check out all of your options.
