B-(Blinds) Before C-(Curtains)
When pairing curtains and blinds, it is best to choose the type or system of blinds or shades first. The best options that we recommend pairing with curtains are Roller Shades and Timber Blinds. These blinds will put functions into your window space. They come in options with light filtering, room darkening, and total block-out. Please pay attention when selecting the color tones for these blinds.
If you want to go with a natural look, we suggest Timber Blinds because they come in many solid wood colors that add a nice warm base background to your window. You can contrast the base wood color with any offsetting color tones. If matching is your thing, you can also choose matching curtain fabrics to enhance your wood tones.
Choices for curtains can either be sheer or dimout fabrics. Since Timber Blinds does most of the UV blocking already, you don’t need to go with another solid fabric.
It's best to go with a solid or plain color curtain as it's pairing and vice versa. Whichever layer you choose as the print pattern, it will be your centerpiece for this space. The other layer should be ready to complement it but not contrast it. Having 2 layer as print might be a bit overpowering in a room.
