The curtains present in our home certainly make the home décor look better along with giving us protection from dust, direct sunlight, and guarding our privacy. There is no denying that finely selected and fitted curtains can greatly help in adding an elegant dimension to the interiors; hence, let’s explore the latest curtain trends.


Multi-coloured motif and floral prints look very attractive and rejuvenating. For this reason, floral curtains are the best-suited option for you if you want to add colour and vibrancy to your living room or bedroom. This type of curtain makes windows the focal point of a room, so it is better to choose floral prints or motifs in a darker palette.

Neutral shades

If you are looking for curtains that are soothing to the eyes, opt for neutral shades such as off-white, sage, mustard, stony grey, or warm greens. Such colours blend really well with the interior of a room; so you do not have to worry much about matching curtains to the furniture or wallpaper of the room. Nonetheless, as neutral colours provide a refreshing aura to any type of room — a bedroom or a nursery are better suited for such colours.

Velvet curtains

The fabric velvet is always associated with something rich and heavy. And you can use velvet curtains to bring luxury into your living room. Velvet, also known as blackout curtains, are essentially made of thick, woven and tufted fabrics and this is why these are very useful in blocking out dust and other pollutants. But keep in mind that velvet curtains can gather dust and microorganism very easily, so these require repeated cleaning. 

Sheer curtains

Heavy and thick curtains can make a room look comparatively smaller. Then the solution? Pair them with sheer curtains. This type of airy curtain can greatly elevate a room’s ambience, and the result is more incoming light as well as the creation of the impression that the rooms have more height.

A simple DIY tip — you can add string lights along the curtain rod for decoration.  

Abstract curtains

If you are an earnest admirer of abstract paintings and drawing, then you will surely enjoy enhancing the beauty of your home décor with abstract patterned curtains. Abstract curtains are usually designed with patterns such as spirals, faces, animals, objects etc.
