Choosing The Right Track

In addition to how you decide on fixing your curtain tracks (Face-Fix or Top-Fix), picking the perfect colour for your curtain track is a big deal and can totally transform the look of your space.

Don't worry though, we've got you covered with two great options: Black Tracks and White Tracks. Of course, your personal style and taste will ultimately guide your decision, but we're here to offer some helpful tips along the way.

What Will The Room Be Used For?

When choosing curtain tracks, it's important to consider the purpose of the room. Do you want the same colour track for all the windows or different colour tracks for different rooms? Also, think about the colour of the fabric you'll be using.

White tracks are a great choice if you want a bright and open feel to your living space. They make the room feel spacious by allowing more focus on the curtain fabric. On the other hand, black tracks can create a bold or moody atmosphere depending on the function of the room.

Curtain Fabric and Colour

Have you made a decision on the color of the fabric for your curtains? The color of the curtain track should ideally complement the fabric color. For darker colors, we recommend using the black track, and for lighter colors, the white track. This will help the track blend in and draw attention to the curtains themselves.

However, if the fabric you have chosen matches the colour scheme of your room, it may be worth considering using a contrasting track colour to create a more striking feature.

Interior Décor

Choosing the perfect colour for your curtain track is an exciting opportunity to add personality to your home décor! We want to make sure you find the perfect fit, so let's start by considering your existing interior décor. Do you want your track to stand out boldly, or should it gracefully blend in with other accent pieces in the room?

Think about the overall vibe you're going for, and we can help guide you towards the best colour option by booking a Design Session with us!

Are you looking for a wow-factor? A dramatic black track will draw the eye and make your windows pop! On the other hand, if you're aiming for a chic and modern feel, a white track is the perfect choice to seamlessly blend into your background. Plus, it's a fantastic option for lightweight sheers that create a soft and delicate look.

We also want to ensure your track colour complements your wall colour. If your walls are neutral, black or white tracks will suit your space perfectly. However, if your walls are a beautiful pale blue, we recommend opting for a white track to balance the colour scheme.

We're here to help you make the perfect choice for your home, so let's get started on finding the ideal colour for your curtain track!

Traditional Home vs Modern Home?

There are no strict rules when it comes to selecting curtain tracks for your home. The colour scheme used in your home can influence your decision.

For modern homes with black aluminium window panes and frames, a black curtain track can be a bold choice. Alternatively, a white track can provide a more subtle appearance, drawing the attention to the curtains themselves.

For traditional style homes, both black and white tracks can work. Depending on the color of your furnishings and interior, you can opt for black tracks to make them stand out, or white tracks for a more understated look.
