Door Curtains Buying Guide

Door curtains. Who doesn’t love that little extra zhuzh they can bring to a home? We’re biased, we know. But by the end of this article, we think you’ll love door curtains just as much as we do!

Depending on where you choose to feature door curtains, and/or what style you opt for - door curtains really do have the ability to add an interesting edge to a room or act as the cherry on top of your interior design efforts.

It’s kind of comparable to when you find the most incredible pair of shoes to perfectly match a dress you’ve been wanting to wear forever. Like a missing piece of a puzzle. Door curtains can just really bring your home design altogether, whilst also bringing your home effortlessly to life with an interesting stylish flare.

Aside from making a room look beautiful, they also have many practical features (we’ll get into those later) so you’ll wonder how you ever lived without them.

Still unsure on whether door curtains are for you? We’re here to help. Read on to discover all the benefits and considerations you need to know about before buying door curtains for your home…

Door curtains overview

We’d like to start by saying that door curtains aren’t reinventing the wheel or anything, so you needn’t worry if you’re not a design guru, or if you’re worried about getting anything wrong. There is no right or wrong when it comes to design preference.

There’s no need to overcomplicate things. Essentially, door curtains are just like any other set of curtains - they can come with an array of different features.

Eyelet or pencil pleat? Yep, you can purchase door curtains in those styles. Are blackout door curtains a thing? Yes, they’re available. What about thermal? Yep, those too. How about lined? Of course.

Door curtains can offer all those sought-after features that may be essential to you when buying other curtains for your home.

The same goes for design styles, patterns, and colours. Door curtains can be as bold and extravagant, or as neutral and simplistically elegant as you’d like them to be. They can also be as heavyset, or as airy and light as you want them to be. The choice is yours!

The benefits of having door curtains in your home

Door curtains actually offer an array of beneficial features to a home. So let’s dive into some of the key advantages:

  • Door curtains can help with noise reduction.

How to measure for a door curtain

There’s no need to worry about measuring for door curtains - it’s virtually the same as measuring for any other type of curtain. And, lucky for you, we can help with that.

There’s nothing worse than an excessively complicated measuring guide, which is why we’ve made sure that ours is super easy to follow. It’ll cover everything you need to know about measuring for curtains, and it’ll save you a ton of time.

You can check out our measuring guide on The Mill Shop website. We promise you’ll have that door curtain measured to perfection and up in no time!

Are door curtains efficient?

Absolutely! They’re a cost-effective way to regulate the temperature of your home - no matter the season. This is because door curtains reduce the airflow that travels into the home. This will help to keep your home insulated, whilst also trapping the heat - which is especially handy in the winter.

On the other end of the spectrum - in the warmer months, door curtains can also be a valuable addition to have. British homes aren’t equipped for the scorching heat - so no doubt you’ll want to open your doors to let some much-needed fresh air in. A pro tip - you can never go wrong with a beautiful lace door curtain in the summer months.

For example, if you have large patio doors that open up into your garden - the use of light and airy door curtains will allow you to soak in all of the fresh air you desire, whilst also preserving a sense of privacy.

There’s nothing worse than feeling as though you may have prying eyes into your home from either your nosy neighbours or passersby. So adding a door curtain to open (or closed) areas will help you to prevent just that.
