Everyone knows the need to hang a curtain, it is primarily for privacy and shade, but surprisingly enough, Curtains can change the whole look of a room. On certain occasions, curtains are put up for decorative purposes as they add a tremendous amount of chicness to a place.

And a tip, no matter what your aesthetics maybe, a good set of curtains can make a room look more polished and put together even if it’s less furnished and foster a great feeling. Interior designer Julia Diamond says, “Curtains set the mood and attitude, and the right ones give a room a finished, tailored look.”

1. Makes a room look Taller

Curtains can make a room look taller by creating an illusion of higher roofs. Instead of putting up curtains on eye-level, it is advised to put them a bit higher over the window frame to achieve this look. A high-hung curtain drapes beautifully and can bring the eye upward, creating an illusion of a taller room.

2. Makes a room look Spacious

Like the previous point, extending curtains past window frames creates an illusion of large windows, and large windows are automatically associated with a bigger room. And if the room is styled exquisitely, the placing of the furniture can add to this illusion even more.

3. Improves Sound in the room

Do you know that Curtains can reduce echo in a room? Curtains can help with the acoustics in a room; unlike on bare walls, sound cannot bounce off of curtains, which makes the room feel less cacophonous and can even eliminate it altogether. So for better sound, curtains are essential.
