How can I choose the best curtains?


Judith Roberts from Julan Soft Furnishings was happy to answer this and many more questions this morning  to her Metro Networking colleagues .

There is so much information out there and this can make it very confusing. I recommend breaking it down into sections to make the decisions easier.


What is the reason you want curtains?


  • Privacy
  • Room too hot or too cold
  • Appearance
  • Acoustics
  • Reduce outside noise
  • Need to darken a room


What area is this for?


  • Specific room eg bedroom, office, family room
  • Formal or casual area
  • Who uses this room male/ female, age


What is in the room that will influence your choice?


  • Furniture
  • Carpet/rug
  • Wall colour
  • Any dominant colours in the room




This is important because there is a wide range of prices available. It is disappointing to find something you love then discover it’s not at the price point you were hoping for.


Why would I contact Julan Soft Furnishings?

Julan use South Australian suppliers for all our tracks and blinds.

All their consultants have experience in  manufacturing enabling them to have a good understanding of fabrics.

Member of the Window Covings Association of Australia. As a Member they abide by a quality standard for the making and service.

Julan’s consultants will ask the questions outlined above and can guide you to the best options for you. As well as give you extra information about the products and the style that will suit your lifestyle and room.



Julan manufacture all curtains on their premise this gives them control over the quality and timing of delivery.

A complete in home service allows you to save time and see the fabrics in your home.


Common mistakes


Some people decide they want blinds and go to a company that only sells blinds. They don’t offer the best option or solutions to problems. A company that sells both blinds and curtains has a broader knowledge of the practical uses of both and the right product for your needs.

Colours change from day to night so it is important to look at them in both lights.

It is an investment that is costly if you get it wrong. Always seek the best advice.
