Patterns and prints
If you are looking for curtains with patterns and prints, choose a pattern or print in a light colour. A pattern or print can be a nice addition to your interior, but it can also quickly become too busy. By choosing a light color in the pattern or print, you retain the fresh look of the white wall.

What else should you pay attention to when choosing curtains for a white wall?
In addition to the color of the curtains, there are other things you should pay attention to when choosing curtains for a white wall.
If you have a lot of light in your home, choose curtains that are translucent. This allows enough natural light to enter and you maintain the fresh look of the white wall. If you want less light, choose blackout curtains in a light color.
The material of the curtains can also play a role in choosing the right color. For example, choose translucent curtains if you want a natural look or velvet curtains if you want an elegant look. Make sure that the material matches the look of your home and the other furniture and accessories.
The length of the curtains is also important. Choose curtains that hang just above the floor, or that are even slightly longer. This creates a luxurious look and emphasizes the height of your ceiling. Curtains that are too short can make the room look unfinished.
Accessories such as curtain rods and tiebacks can also play a role in choosing curtains for a white wall. For example, choose a curtain rod in a metal color such as gold or copper to add some warmth to your interior. Or choose a tieback in a color that matches your curtains to make it complete.
There are many colors that go well with a white wall. Warm colors like beige and terracotta, cool colors like gray and blue, pastel shades like pink and lilac, and patterns and prints in light colors are all good choices. When choosing curtains, also pay attention to the light transmission, the material, the length and the accessories to create the right atmosphere in your home. With these tips you can find curtains that fit perfectly with your white wall and that complete your interior.
