Living Room Curtain Ideas 

We love our living rooms and our curtains. Fortunately, both are fine, but that does not mean that all curtains go with the design of every living room. Today we examine how to get the most out of your curtains and make the most of your living room. If you are looking for ideas for living room curtains.

What Kinds of Curtains Are Best for the Living Room? 

This is a very common question and it is easy to answer if you follow a few simple steps. 

You must first define the theme of your living room. There are a variety of interior design trends, many of which benefit from a well-made curtain. For example, a maximalist living room would be enriched with a colourful, patterned curtain, while a minimalist bedroom could be enhanced with a strikingly bright monochromatic curtain. The curtains are also available in a variety of materials. Again, it is important to consider the overall theme of the room. A nomadic-inspired interior could be enhanced with a lightweight material such as linen or silk. 

Voile curtains are another great, more modern option, especially if your living room opens directly onto your garden. However, if you want to recreate a traditional English decor,  look for heavier fabrics like wool or even plush velvet.  Making your final choice may seem overwhelming, but don't worry, there is plenty of help available. You can visit the blog for inspiration on colour and design trends.

What are the current trends in curtains for your living room? 

As with anything carefully designed, like furniture, clothing, and even food, trends emerge and become popular. 

If you want your home to epitomize the “contemporary”, and use your curtains as the central vehicle for it, you should consider four trends in 2021: 

 Scandinavian design is based on neutral and natural colours along with textured and sheer curtains materials. Curtains are a great way to incorporate these elements into a room, especially with a dark wood curtain rod. Find out more at Scandi Design Interiors and Style Blog 

Cottagecore is another trend that is growing in popularity. Navy blues and dusty pinks accenting eucalyptus green and slate gray are great starting positions and  all look amazing on a curtain. You can also use patterns heavily with a cottage core curtain, especially floral prints. The focus of the trend: what is the core of the cottage? The blog contains more valuable information. 

Global white Interior Design is a celebration and fusion of international cultures, countries and customs. It reflects the coming together of different shapes, patterns, colours and fabrics in a way that our common global community welcomes. A thick, creamy curtain with a nice texture is a great addition to the Global Nomad interior. Read more on the blog "Looking Ahead: Global white Interior Design ". 

Maximalism is the antithesis of minimalist interior design. The principle behind this trend is to overdo everything. We don't want cautious restrictions, but deliberate chaos. The intensive use of colours and patterns is essential for maximalist interior design. Therefore, consider making the most of them as part of your selection of curtains.

How can you update your shades? 

If you just love curtains but something is wrong, you may have the wrong curtain rod for your living room. 

Certain shades work best with certain rods, creating an overall effect that is greater than the sum of its parts. A dark red velvet classically inspired patterned curtain would look amazing with a rich wooden rod, but it can look a bit odd with an elegant shiny silver equivalent. 

Matching your curtain to the right curtain rod is much easier than you might expect. Our Trend Focus: Curtain Poles blog can contain exactly the inspiration and expertise you are looking for. 

How can I adjust the curtains? 

As mentioned above, there is a wide range of curtains in different colours, materials and patterns. But do not forget that the available curtains are even more diverse. 4,444 living rooms serve multiple purposes and luckily there is a lot of customization with most shades. The two most popular options are thermal and opaque coatings. 

Whether your living room is cool in winter or hot in summer, thermally lined curtains keep you warm indoors in colder months and outside during heat waves. This increases comfort, reduces costs and protects the environment. 

If you like to use your living room as a home theatre or makeshift guest bedroom, a blackout panel will help block out the light so you can enjoy the small screen or get the best possible night's sleep.
