Three Steps to Choosing Kitchen Curtain Colors

There is a huge variety available in kitchen curtain fabrics and colors, so many that you may be hesitant to make a choice. If you are worried about making the wrong decision here is a step by step plan to follow:-

Step 1 : Think About Your Kitchen

Your kitchen itself will be the biggest factor in choosing colors wisely. Some kitchens are built around natural materials. For example, you may have wooden units and terracotta flooring, with beige mosaic tiles on the walls. Although you may have stainless steel or white appliances the colors in a kitchen like this are for the most part warm and curtains should belong in this color spectrum too. If, on the other hand, your kitchen is mainly shiny white surfaces and black counter tops then your kitchen belongs in the cool spectrum and you need to choose cool colors for your kitchen curtains too.

Step 2 : Think About Your Accessories

If you have already chosen your kitchen accessories, then think about the colors that they add to your kitchen. It makes sense to include these in your curtains. If you have not chosen your accessories yet you can skip this step and choose accessories to match your kitchen tier curtains rather than the other way around.

Step 3 : Look at Available Fabrics

Look at available curtain fabrics for both ready made and made to measure curtains. You will find these in local stores but don’t forget to look online too. Remember to consider only those fabrics which are suitable for the kitchen. These will be easy-care (washable) and informal (cotton rather than silk!) If you are looking for warm color curtains, consider fabrics which are predominantly cream, yellow, orange, warm green or brown. If looking at the cool color spectrum seek out those fabrics which are mainly white, blue, gray or acid tones.
