  1. Look at the decor. Anything you choose has to complement the walls and the decoration that you have around it. Something that clashes, no matter how much you like the material is going to cause an issue.

  1. The black out curtain. Designed to remove all traces of light this will also provide complete privacy and reduce noise. Useful if you live on a busy Urban street. However the room can become gloomy so additional lighting might be needed. Unless you like gloomy of course.
  2. Stylish Top treatment curtains. These have a nice tiny curtain at the top of the main ones that give them a nice look. This little curtain is called a valance.
