What Color of Curtain If the Wall Is a Light Color?


Light-colored walls make a preferable background for window curtains. Whatever curtain color or pattern you select is sure to stand out against a light wall color.


  • Take a look around the room at the furniture. Furniture upholstered in a solid color is already a dominant feature in the room and it is best to stay away from trying to exactly match the curtain to the furniture.


  • Coordinate the color of the curtains with sofa pillows, area rugs or bed coverings. When patterns are used for fabric in accessory items, choose a color that is less dominant, or a color you would like to see stand out from the other colors.


  • Choose a curtain color that is darker than the wall color. Matching light-colored curtains with a light wall color will result in a seemingly non-existent window and a boring wall.
