It is a matter of personal taste and preference. But, here are a few helpful tips: First, try to pick a color that complements the room’s décor and color scheme. A neutral color drape blends in with almost anything. So, consider off white fabrics, whites, earth tones, etc. A neutral color drape will often allow you to later change the furniture or even wall color and not have to replace the window treatment again. Also, in smaller rooms go with a lighter color drape to make the room feel larger. In small rooms, dark color drapes can make the room appear smaller.
