Curtains have long ceased to be just a piece of fabric, designed to protect the room from excess light during the day and hide it from prying eyes at night. Modern curtains are the same equivalent decor element as a stylish vase or an interesting picture. This means that the choice of curtains for any of the rooms in your apartment should be taken very seriously and take into account the main trends prevailing in the design environment. So, you want to embody in your not only stylish, but also fashionable design? Then let’s figure out what advice on choosing curtains for the living room designers give us in the coming year.
Naturalness is in fashion
The general trend in the world of design, which is gaining more and more popularity every season, is the desire to choose the most natural materials. This applies both to decoration materials, the choice of which we are increasingly urged to pay attention to environmentally friendly wood or MDF (anyone can afford), and the materials used in the decoration of the room – decorative panels, textiles, etc..
Thus, the most preferred choice will be curtains made of natural materials – variations of cotton, linen, silk and other plant fibers. However, nothing prevents you from choosing a fabric that is more suitable for the overall style of your living room..
|Velvet||The basis of the fabric can be silk, cotton, nylon. Fleeces are stretched through the base – short and thick, giving velvet a special texture.|
|Taffeta||It is made of silk or synthetic fibers. The texture is heavy, rustling, smooth. Has a shimmering surface.|
|Mora||Most often made of silk, has a wavy iridescent pattern.|
|Jacquard||It is made by intricate weaving, has an interesting ornament.|
|Brocade||Jacquard weave, voluminous, textured patterns.|
|Satin||Consists of cotton fibers, has a slight sheen.|
|Jute||Pretty coarse fabric made from natural jute plant fibers.|
|Veil||Usually cotton or silk, has a light texture with sewn patterns.|
|Chiffon||Silk fiber derivative, thin, transparent fabric.|
|Tulle||Thin mesh fabric.|
What type of curtains are in trend?
Light and weightless
Modern interiors love spaciousness and lightness. Even the popular loft style has been increasingly facilitated by designers with the help of light curtains made of thin transparent fabrics..
Tulle, chiffon, veil – these are the materials that will allow you to create a beautiful weightless interior.
By the way, despite the fact that white is the most fashionable choice of the 2020 season, no one restricts you in choosing a color for curtains in the living room. Bright and juicy natural shades will perfectly fall on the weightless curtain structure and will become a significant accent of its modern interior.
Volume and Drapery
It would seem that volumetric curtains and the use of drapery is a tendency that directly contradicts the previous one, urging us to abandon the complex decor of curtains in favor of lightness and simplicity. But not so simple!
If you want to create an interesting accent in your living room with the help of voluminous curtains, pay attention to light materials, such as brocade or taffeta, which have texture. Thus, you can achieve the desired volume without making the living room space heavier..
Eyelets and rings
For those who don’t know, let’s explain: eyelets are rings made of metal or plastic, thanks to which the curtain is strung on a cornice. Such curtains look very original and in themselves are an interesting decor item, even in plain colors without additional prints..
The use of eyelets is possible not only for curtains made of dense material, but also for light fabrics. Simply seal the top layer of the curtains with any suitable dense texture..
Laconicism of Roman curtains
Roman curtains not so long ago they began to be fully used in the design projects of the living room and hall. This option is not only practical, but also very interesting..
Among the Roman curtains, there are three main types:
- light scattering;
- day Night.
What are their main differences?
Reflective Roman curtains are made of fabrics capable of reflecting light. Using this option will be more justified in a bedroom or a nursery, where excess light is perceived as a hindrance to relaxation, but not in any way for a hall, especially a modern.
Light-diffusing Roman curtains, in contrast, scatter the light falling on them, and are well suited for use in living rooms.
An excellent compromise options are Roman curtains such as “day-night”. Their peculiarity lies in the alternation of bands of dense and light tissue (therefore they are often called curtains of the zebra type). Such curtains are attached in two layers with the ability to adjust the location of the strips on both layers. For example, if you want to darken the space, just adjust the curtains so that the dense stripes of one layer overlap the transparent stripes of the second. Accordingly, in order to let more light into the room, it is necessary to combine strips of the same type with each other.
Roman curtains in the interior of the hall can be perfectly combined with classical curtains of any type – both their dense, lightproof materials, and light transparent fabrics.
Originality of Japanese curtains
Japanese curtains are a fashion trend in the design of the hall in 2020 and there are several explanations for this..
- The national color and element of ethnicity in design has recently become more and more popular..
- Japanese style is minimalistic, and minimalism is not the first season in favor with designers.
- As curtains are an additional decor, the choice of curtains of the Japanese design is a surefire way to add an interesting accent to your room.
So, what are Japanese curtains? Japanese, or panel, curtains consist of a cornice and cloths. The mechanism of movement of cloths on the ledge resembles a compartment door.
Japanese curtains are a great choice for owners of a living room with large wide windows! Unfortunately, for small windows, Japanese curtains can serve as an extra “weighting agent” that conceals the space.
Basic shades – timeless classic
The 2020 season develops the desire for simplicity that he inherited from the year 2020. Use in the design of premises basic tones, such as gray, black, beige and – especially! – white – the main leitmotif of fashion design projects.
Universal white color perfectly copes with the task of facilitating heavy interiors, brings a fresh touch, transforms a small living room. Such a choice is suitable for those who do not want to focus on textiles, but prefer to diversify the interior with other bright colors, whether it is furniture or interesting lamps.
Dark curtains are another classic option that can make the interior a little stricter. If you choose dark curtains, choose them in tone upholstery upholstered furniture, lampshades for floor lamps or the colors of cushions.
As for the color ratio of finishes and curtains in a modern room, here designers give us a certain scope for creative ideas. Both curtains, matched to the tone of the main finish, and playing with it in contrast will look equally stylish..
Freshness of natural shades
Shades of nature itself are popular everywhere – whether it’s a kitchen, bedroom, hallway or living room. Here are the basic tones to which you should pay attention, choosing the perfect curtain option among the new products:
Colored curtains will easily make your room more interesting, so do not be afraid to experiment with combinations. The eternal rule of “curtains to match textiles” is no longer the dominant one. Match the curtains to the tone of other decorative elements or trim elements, if you do not use a plain range.
Relive the interior of the hall with bright curtains of natural tones, and it will become not only a great place to relax, but also a place that gives you a charge of positive energy!
Prints and patterns – an original touch of your design
If plain curtains, even of rich natural shades, seem too boring to you, designers have something to offer you in the coming 2020.
So, which patterns seem to be the most fashionable this season?
- animal prints and images of animals;
- large flowers;
- geometric figures;
- futuristic prints;
- Photo curtains.
As you can see, the scope for imagination is greater than ever!
Duplication of the curtain pattern in other elements of the decor will help you combine them all into a single space of the hall.
We select the curtains to the overall style of the hall design
In more detail about the styles of the design of the hall that are fashionable this season, we already written. Let’s consider in more detail which curtains are better suited to fashionable interiors..
Eclectic style is extremely popular in the upcoming season! The combination of incongruous, made with feeling, sense and competent arrangement – this is the key to creating a truly unique interior.
Do not think that creating an interior in the eclectic style is as easy as shelling pears, and for this it is enough to simply combine elements of different styles in one space. A correct and stylish eclectic interior does not leave a feeling of excessiveness, and often only professionals can achieve such an effect!
Choosing curtains for the hall in the eclectic style, you should pay attention to options with interesting prints and patterns. The best solution would be large flowers and geometric shapes. Striped curtains or futuristic patterns also fit in nicely..
Minimalism implies conciseness in the design of upholstered furniture and storage system facades, the use of simple light colors in decoration with bright accents, as well as the rejection of excessive decor.
The ideal solution for a room in the style of minimalism will be simple light curtains in bright colors (ideally, white).
Roman curtains and Japanese curtains coming to the peak of popularity will perfectly fit into such an interior.
The very name of this style involves the maximum use of natural materials in the decoration, decor and decoration of the room.
Having started the arrangement of the hall in an eco-style, refer to the curtains made of natural materials such as cotton, linen, silk, etc..
The color scheme is also better to choose natural – shades of white, beige, gray, green, blue, yellow are suitable.
Acceptable use of prints and patterns that are associated with nature. For example, photo-curtains depicting exotic flowers, plants or animals that are gaining popularity this season will perfectly fit into this style..
Art Deco – the style of the glamorous elite of the mid XX century. Smooth shapes, chic and simplicity are harmoniously combined in an art deco style hall.
After completing the general decoration of the hall in bright colors, give preference to dark furniture, the tone of which is worth picking up and curtains.
Art Deco accepts the use of not only plain curtains, but also interesting patterns, often geometric ones, that mentally return us to the era of Golden Hollywood, which gave us this wonderful style, which is currently experiencing a new heyday..
The choice of pop art in the design of the hall will allow you to look at its space from a new angle. As a basic background for experiments, it is best to choose a neutral color scheme, preferably in white tones..
The accents in the interior in the style of pop art are set using an interesting decor, and the curtains will perfectly cope with this task..
Pop art is the case when you should not be afraid of rich colors and flashy prints. The main thing is that the final result, as in the case of eclecticism, should not be overloaded with details that do not allow us to fully understand the whole picture.
Finally, one cannot fail to mention the classics, as the classics, as you know, never go out of style. So now – in the upcoming season there is sure to be a place for a living room in a classic style.
If the “classic classic” is too heavy for you, refer to the neoclassical design options, which, while preserving the traditions of classic interiors, look more fresh and organic in modern space.
Curtains for this style are suitable voluminous, with drapery. But do not forget about the usual, simplest curtains, which can be skillfully combined with Roman.
Curtains for the hall with kitchen
Modern apartment layouts often combine two zones – a kitchen and a living room. Someone does not like this option, someone, on the contrary, likes combining spaces of different purposes into a single whole. But anyway, such a layout is a frequent companion of modern apartments, which means that the question often arises: how to choose curtains for such a room?
In the choice of curtains, as well as in the choice of design as a whole, before you, by and large, there are two main ways:
- to distinguish between the kitchen area and the recreation area with the help of decoration and decor;
- combine zones into a single space.
In the first case, we still recommend using materials of a similar texture and color scheme in the decoration and decoration of various zones, so as not to cut the room into two pieces, as this can play a trick on you, making the space of the room visually smaller.
Use different shades of the same color to decorate the kitchen and relaxation areas..
When choosing a decor, choose, for example, classic curtains or curtains on the grommets for the living room, and Roman curtains matching them for the kitchen.
In the second case, you can execute the design of zones in one color using a similar decor, and choose the same curtains for windows in the kitchen zone and in the hall zone.

What to do if there are no perfect curtains anywhere?
Custom made curtains
It also happens that you created an interesting design project that takes into account all your preferences, but you can’t find the right curtain for it. As in the famous Soviet film: “I would be the same, but with mother-of-pearl buttons.” It seems that you find a suitable color, but the material is not at all what you would like, or, conversely, the material was found, but there is no suitable color.
In this case, you can contact the studio. Such a choice will allow you to most accurately realize your interior design. Of course, this option is likely to cost a little more than ready-made store ones, but you will get exactly what you wanted.
The cost of sewing simple curtains with tulle for two windows, excluding material, is about $ 50.
Curtains to the hall with your own hands
If you have handmade skills, then you can easily cope with sewing curtains yourself.
But even if the decision to sew the curtains yourself visited you for the first time, you are quite capable of coping with this task. Fortunately, at present the Internet is replete with various workshops on sewing curtains.
We offer you one of these master classes, as a result of which you can sew classic curtains for your living room yourself.
First of all, you will need:
- fabric (about 2 m wide, 2.8 m long);
- curtain tape;
- threads to match the color of the fabric;
- tape measure and ruler;
- sewing machine.
The procedure is as follows:
- Open the fabric. Decide on the required length, to which a total of about 16 cm should be added – 10 cm for the hem of the bottom and 6 cm for the tape (maybe your tape will have a different width).
- Select the desired width of the sides of the future curtain after cutting it. Postpone the necessary bending (1.5-3 cm) – iron, then do another bending – and iron as well.
- Sew the sides on the sewing machine.
- Start processing the bottom. It is similar to processing the sides – the algorithm of actions is the same, but the limb should be 5 cm each time.
- Now you need to sew the curtain tape. The curtain sheet is located face up, the side cut of the curtain tape is bent to the wrong side by about 1-2 cm. Next, the curtain tape is looped upward on the front side of the canvas, and their upper sections are aligned.
- For convenience, we advise you to pin the tape to the curtain using pins and do it in a checkerboard pattern. We trim the tape 2 cm longer than the length of the curtain, and bend the excess inward.
- Stitch the curtain tape along the inner edge at a distance of about 1 mm from the edge.
- After that, we bend the curtain tape to the wrong side of the canvas and attach it along the lower edge.
- We make one more line in the middle of the curtain tape, paying attention not to stitch the loops and threads of the curtain tape.
- Next, we tie the threads on both sides of the curtain tape into one knot and, pulling them, we give the curtain the necessary width.
- Classic curtains for the room are ready!
