CURTAINS ARE A KEY ELEMENT TO A ROOM’S OVERALL AESTHETICS
The way you dress your windows can make or break a room scheme. No matter how striking a room is, it will never look complete until your window treatments are in place. Here are 20 different curtain ideas for the master bedroom:
MIX AND MATCH
One of the most criticized practices in regards to doing window treatments is mix and match. One is always advised to match your curtains to make your room look unified and put together, but where’s the fun in that? We agree that the mix and match concept is a little foreign to many but not as risky. All we need to nail this concept is to research our patterns, colors, texture, style, etc, and find the right pick for us. But if you still feel a little overwhelmed you do not need to worry, all you have to do is get yourself a double pipe combination of sheer and thick. We promise you can never go wrong with that.
SHEER CANOPY CURTAINS
We agree it isn’t for everyone but for those who love themselves a canopy bed in their huge master bedrooms would love having sheer curtains all around them making them feel like the royalty they are. Canopy beds are intended to conserve warmth and offer privacy, but they are incomplete without its corona. Using sheer drapes for your corona will not only help you maintain a little privacy and warmth but also make the room feel very romantic and roomy.

Color blocking uses a band of color at the bottom of a neutral shaded curtain in a subtle way which helps to anchor the room.
