Have you seen a nice home that did not have the right curtains or the curtains were not done well? They can really ruin an otherwise beautiful interior. The Lord specified what He wanted for the tabernacle because it was important to Him:

“Moreover you shall make the tabernacle with ten curtains of fine woven linen and blue, purple, and scarlet thread; with artistic designs of cherubim you shall weave them. The length of each curtain shall be twenty-eight cubits, and the width of each curtain four cubits. And every one of the curtains shall have the same measurements…And you shall make loops of blue yarn on the edge of the curtain on the selvedge of one set…Fifty loops you shall make in the one curtain…And you shall make fifty clasps of gold…You shall also make curtains of goats’ hair…You shall make eleven curtains. The length of each curtain shall be…You shall also make a covering of ram skins dyed red for the tent, and a covering of badger skins above that” (Exodus 26.1–14).

This was important for the Lord because it was His tabernacle and He always has a purpose for everything that He wants from man. Therefore, man, in this case the children of Israel, had to make it important to themselves that they might see the tabernacle as holy.
