How to Select Curtains for Your New Window Replacements, West Plains, Missouri

A window replacement beautifies both the interior and exterior of your home. If you’re looking for a way to complement these new features, adding curtains is an excellent approach. MO-Ark Glass, the leading window experts in West Plains, MO, wants to help you with the final touches. Read their guide below to help you choose the right treatments. 

Material & Style

Before you get started, you'll need to assess exactly what you want out of your curtains. Are you looking for more privacy, or is there a specific amount of light you want to filter in? The answers will most likely depend on the room you're currently outfitting. Living rooms, for instance, call for a brighter, more open aesthetic, while bedrooms are suitable for privacy-enhancing materials.

Thicker materials are best for privacy, while options like sheer polyester shine in sunrooms and living rooms. As for the color and pattern, complementary colors with designs that play off your layout or existing design are ideal. 


Correctly measuring and mounting your curtains will go a long way toward enhancing the look of the room. For the best results, measure the height from the rod to the floor. Take this measurement with you when shopping for treatments to complement your window installation, thereby ensuring you don’t get anything too long or short. Also consider the level of fullness you want when measuring the width of the frame, opting for additional material if you desire a more "draped" appearance. 

Curtains are an excellent way to enhance your window replacements.
