Deciding which curtain colour is suitable for your room can be overwhelming. There are several factors to consider, like the room’s size, natural light, and layout. The floors and wall colour may also influence your decision.

Read on to learn more about selecting the right colour for your room.

There are many Options to consider when it comes to curtain fabric choice. We’re going to look at several themes:

  • Monochromatic tones
  • Neutrals
  • Patterns
  • Complementary colours
  • Contrasting colour schemes


Many modern home designers opt for monochromatic or single-toned themes. Differing shades of grey, white, and sand remain popular, and we recommend choosing curtains that are just one shade lighter or darker than your wall colour.


Neutrals consist of beige, cream, ivory, white, brown, and natural wood colours. These colours tend to match most décor as they are gentle and calming. Neutral colours also tend to fade less than brightly coloured fabrics. Neutral colours are ideal for bedrooms and bathrooms and rooms Beaming with natural light.


Patterns are an excellent choice for rooms with bright white walls. Patterns draw the eye and work as a statement piece, framing windows to perfection. We suggest choosing patterns that contain elements the same colour as the walls to create a cohesive look. Avoid using patterned curtains in rooms full of furniture or artworks, as they can make the room feel over-embellished.

Complementary colours

Complementary colours lay on opposite sides of the colour wheel. Choosing complementary colours (e.g., red and green, or blue and orange) can create an eclectic look which suits those brave enough to opt for a statement aesthetic. Consider opting for a bold, coloured curtain with a lighter complementary wall.
