What to look for when shopping for curtains in Newbury

Reynolds Blind discuss what to look for when shopping for curtains in Newbury. Read on to find out more.

Do you want to update the look of your home or are you at the exciting stages of redecorating a new home in Newbury? Then curtains need to be a big consideration.

Curtains are essential to controlling the light in and out of the home and for providing privacy.

Curtains will also provide the final flourish to any room you are decorating in your Bristol home.

So getting it right can make all the difference between having a blissfully dark bedroom or a light-filled lounge.

Here are our top tips when looking for curtains in Newbury:


While appearance will probably be the number one factor that draws you to a pair of curtains, always consider the use first as this will inform the colour and the choice of material.

Bedroom curtains are generally better suited to blocking out the light when they are made from a thicker, darker material. Although with an excellent range of fabrics and the availability of black-out linings a good Bristol curtain shop, such as Reynolds Blinds, will allow you to choose the perfect colour and design for the room.


Curtains are an important part of any interior design scheme providing the barrier between your cosy home and the outside world. Selecting curtains that complement the colour scheme of your Bristol home will provide the perfect finishing touch.

Either choose a complementary colour that blends in with your design or a stand-out colour that works well to contrast and bring added interest, such as in a monochrome scheme.


Curtain sizes vary widely from narrow windows that throw in a touch of extra light to full-length feature windows. Getting the size right is important.

Made-to-measure curtains are the ideal solution to make sure the curtains that you choose are exactly right for our Bristol home – if a job is worth doing it is worth doing properly! Whatever the size or drop of your curtains a made-to-measure service will make sure you get just what you need.


If you already have curtain poles in place the finish that you need may need to fit this, however, Reynolds blinds can supply new curtain poles to suit the style of your choice.

Pencil pleat, pinch pleat and eyelet curtains all offer different finishes depending on the look you are after in your Bristol home.

Pencil pleat curtains offer fullness, while pinch pleat adds a decorative flourish and eyelets complement a modern, streamlined look.

Whatever the look that you are hoping to achieve when adding new curtains to your Bristol home Reynolds Blinds can help – and with tie backs, pelmets and remote control options available the world is your oyster.
