What kind of curtain fabric to choose for different types of curtains (e.g. sliding panels and roman blinds)?

ADVICE

Different types of curtains- using the same fabric or not, roman shades, sliding panels

Reader’s question

"In my living room I have two French doors and a window. I was thinking to choose curtains or sliding panels for the doors and roman panels for the window. I am wondering if roman panels match the curtains. Should I pick the same fabric for both types of curtains since they are all in the same room?"

Our recommendation

If you like to match different types of curtains, you have the following options

• You can choose the same fabric (regarding pattern, color and texture) for both curtains and roman blinds.

• Alternatively you can choose patterned or striped fabrics for the sliding curtains that cover large area and are a dominant element in the space. For the roman shades, you can select a plain color fabric, which should be one of the colors of the sliding curtains.
