Our black check curtains can add drama to a room, but also evoke other emotions. The black in a checked pattern highlights the other colours used, to enhance the feel of the colour and make it more visible. When used with brown, another neutral shade, it makes a bolder statement of protection, earthiness and stability. It makes brighter colours pop and come alive. While the back in the checked patter recedes to the background, it pushed the other colours forward.
Checks are more popular in decorating today. At one time, when you considered checks, you immediately thought of gingham fabric, often used for kitchen curtains or in cottage or country décor. Today, checks come in a wide variety of patterns with different sizes of checks, a variety of symmetry and in dozens of different checked shapes. You’ll find everything from the ultra modern large black and white or black and neon toned checks, to the cosy country kitchen gingham. You’ll be amazed how certain curtain designs seem to cross over easily to fit more than one decorating motif.
