5 Advantages to Having Curtains in Your Bedroom

in Decorating on by

Curtains in the bedroom can be a great addition to your apartment. You might wonder whether it’s worth the time and money to put up your own bedroom curtains, but you should look at all the benefits they offer, so you don’t miss out on a great opportunity to improve the look of this room. Here are some of the advantages to having curtains in your bedroom.

1. Temperature Control with Linen Curtains

Linen curtains are great to have for any room in the apartment, but especially the bedroom. Linen curtains have a soft, elegant appearance. They are more practical and heavy duty than they appear. They will keep your bedroom warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. If you’re irritated by certain fabrics, linen curtains for bedroom purposes are a good option for you. They will not cause irritation or allergies.

2. Curtains Provide Privacy

If you have very nosy neighbors and you don’t want them looking inside your apartment, curtains can of course prevent that. Make sure that the curtains you buy for a bedroom window are not transparent. To be on the safe side, it is a good idea to buy curtains that are a little bigger than your actual window, to prevent anyone looking in at an angle.

3. Dust Prevention

Curtains in your bedroom can be beneficial because they prevent dust from building up in the room. Curtains gather dust from places close to them. That will keep the dust from piling up in other areas of your bedroom. Remember to periodically shake out or wash the curtains, because they gather a lot of dust over time.  

4. Light Control

Having curtains can control the light that comes into your bedroom. That can impact your use of energy in some ways. If you lift up the curtains during the day, you can use natural sunlight, eliminating the need to turn on the lights.

If you don’t want the light, you let the curtains down. This can be very useful when you’re working on a computer or watching a movie. If you can’t see the screen well because the sun is too bright in your face, letting down your bedroom curtains can make it darker. On the other hand, having lighter colored curtains can make the room appear lighter at night, even with a simple lamp. Either way, curtains can help you cut down on electricity usage.

5. Curtains Are Customizable

Curtains are very customizable. You can get them in all different colors and styles. If you have a particular theme going on in your bedroom, you can choose curtains based on it. For example, you can purchase curtains that either accent or enhance the colors of your room.

Having curtains in the bedroom is both practical and aesthetic. While a traditional set of blinds can offer many of the same advantages, they don’t have the same style as a nice set of curtains. Depending on the theme of the room and the different needs you have, there are a wide variety of curtains to choose from.

    Very insightful article. I didn't realize that curtains help cut down on dust. After reading your explanation, I can see why they would help cut on dust, but, like you said, it's important to clean them occasionally. I would think that once or twice a month would be appropriate depending on the dust level.

    I was really interested to learn that curtains could actually help prevent dust from building up in your room. I have bad allergies, and dust is one of the worst ones for me. If I could help manage that with some nice curtains, it'd be great as it would also help my place look a lot nicer. Thanks for the read.
