We all know that windows treatments can make a big difference in the look of a room. But, start adding in custom details like blackout liner or a longer-than-standard length, and curtains can also make a big difference in the room’s budget. That’s why I couldn’t be happier with the IKEA WERNA curtain panels I found for our master bedroom. For $40 a pair, I got 98” of emerald green beauty. (A higher hung curtain can instantly elevate your room’s style. I wrote more about that here.)
So that the artwork and desk area didn’t feel too crowded, I opted for one panel on the outside of each window. Since the bamboo shades we hung don’t block very much light, we’ve started pulling the curtains at night. What a huge difference! It’s so much darker in our room than when we were just closing the blinds that were there before. The IKEA curtains feel like true, blackout treatments that you find in a hotel room. (The rods are also from IKEA—my favorite source for inexpensive, quality window hardware.)
I also love the look and feel of this curtain. It’s a great weight—not too heavy and not too thin—and almost has a silky texture. The green color instantly sold me, but it also comes in a dark blue and dark red/burgundy.
