Curtains are an important element of any room that are usually the final touch in the remodeling of a home. They not only make the room feel more comfortable, but they also create a homely atmosphere. To complete your interior decor, consider matching your curtains with wallpapers. Choosing the right color and pattern combos will bring texture to your space and create a warm feeling. However, it is important to know which pairings work best as your interior design may end up looking dull or bland.

The Selection Rule of Matching Wallpaper with Curtains
– The first rule is not to be tempted to buy fabric of a similar shade for your curtains as you don’t want to completely repeat the color of the wallpaper. This will make your interior tasteless. The curtain’s color should differ by one or two shades. For example, if your wallpaper is white, the curtain should be beige or light brown or vice versa.
– You may also choose contrasting combos – just make sure the color of the pairings belongs to the same color group. Warm tones can make the room appear smaller, whereas cold tones will visually expand the space.
– In brighter rooms, it’s best not to go for light-color curtains with patterns as this will look bland. To bring your room to life, pick dark-color curtains with ivory wallpaper.
– For a mix of different shades, consider the style of your interior decor before picking the right curtains and wallpaper. For rustic-style rooms, for example, it is better to buy vintage wallpaper paired with classic curtains.
– Floral curtains are extremely popular in both modern and traditional homes. These curtains are best suited with floral or nature-themed wallpaper to create a seamless look.
With these quick pointers in mind, let’s now take a look at our best picks of wallpaper and curtain pairings:
