When it’s time to tuck away the day, the right bedroom curtain ideas will not only make your sleep space look and feel great, but help you sleep soundly too. 

Thinking carefully about your drapes is a crucial part of putting together your bedroom ideas. Taking up a substantial surface area that stretches from floor to ceiling, they can make a huge impact on your design scheme. 

Whether you want your curtain ideas to blend in with a relaxed scheme or make an impact with a pop of color or pattern, aesthetics are obviously important when it comes to curtains, but so is their ability to keep out sunlight when you’re trying to get your beauty sleep.

Bedroom curtain ideas

For tips on picking bedroom curtain ideas that don’t only look good but leave you feeling well rested too, we asked the experts for their advice. 

1. Pick a curtain heading that suits your style

From bohemian bedroom ideas to slick modern looks, pick a curtain heading that fits with your personal style.  

‘Different curtain headings will create distinctive looks,’ says Mariana Ugarte and Jen Choate, Co-Founders of Interior Fox . 

‘Those looking for a modern and sleek finish should consider a curtain track system. Alternatively, for a more relaxed look try tie-top curtains. They are increasingly becoming more popular, they feel light, airy, and add a rustic element to your window.’

In this white bedroom, a fresh neutral look is accented with a black curtain pole that ties in with the picture frames and out-of-shot sideboard. 

‘When working with eyelet curtains make sure to coordinate the eyelet color with the chosen curtain pole,’ advise Ugarte and Choate. 

2. Go long

If you’re looking to add a feeling of decadence to your master bedroom, take your curtains to the top.

‘Give height and drama to the room by hanging the curtains higher than the window. This will elongate the window and make best use of the natural light,’ say the Interior Fox duo. ‘When measuring the window, make sure to take the full length so the curtain drops to the floor with no gaps.’ 

In this dark bedroom by Murphy Deesign , a small space with relatively short windows is made to feel taller with the use of George Spencer Designs fabric hung substantially above the window frame, teamed with a white ceiling that contrasts with the dark blue walls. 

3. Bring pattern into a simple scheme

Curtains are a great way to add visual interest into a room, and stretch it from top to toe. If you’re looking to add interest into a generally simple bedroom scheme, pick a small format pattern that borrows its colors from accents across the room. 

In this blue bedroom by Studio Duggan , a neutral backdrop of grays is enlivened by a Moroccan-inspired blue and red curtain pattern. To tie a curtain pattern into a room, drop patterns of a similar scale elsewhere, or even use the same pattern on cushions, as demonstrated here.  

4. Sleep tight with a blackout lining

First and foremost, curtains are for blocking out the outside world and that includes any unwelcome natural light. 

‘If the curtains are for the bedroom I’d suggest a blackout lining with integrated interlining. This will obstruct early morning sunlight, keep your room cool throughout the summer months, warm in winter and provide the best drape,’ says Harry Cole, Founder at Loom & Last . 

‘Blackout lining is also a good option for living spaces at the front of the house as it restricts visibility and helps to maintain privacy.'

Blackout curtains don’t have to look heavy either. These Loom & Last curtains are blackout lined, but give the external impression of lightweight cotton.

5. Go eco-friendly with linen

Using natural materials is among the top bedroom trends right now and if a trend is good for the planet too, we’re all here for it.  

‘Linen works best for an eco-friendly curtain choice,’ says Cole. ‘The advantage to choosing this natural material is that it has very little impact on the environment unlike many of the synthetic materials. Made from flax plants that require little water or pesticides, linen is regarded as the most sustainable fabric.’ 

In this room by interior designer Beth Webb , a linen-style curtain shows how the look can also marry rusticity with sophistication.

6. Make the curtains one of many colored accents

Curtains are a great way to bring a generous pop of color into a room, especially modern curtain ideas. With just one item, you can transform a neutrally painted room and really lead its color story. Pair it with accents of the same color group around the room to create a coherent scheme. 

This guest bedroom is given warmth thanks to pink accents of different shades throughout the space, contrasted with rich leafy greens. Creating a color scheme through soft furnishings is an excellent option for the likes of kids' rooms, where you may not want to commit to an all-out paint job. 

7. Pair your curtains with a blind

Blackout linings aren’t the only way to fortify your curtains’ light-shielding abilities. 

‘Alternatively, we like to pair curtains with a blind,’ say Choate and Ugarte. ‘Not only does it filter out the light and increase privacy, but it also creates a visual focal point that is sophisticated, timeless, and chic.’ 

This has been achieved in this gray bedroom by K&H Design , where an unusual window arrangement is turned into a centerpiece through the use of an additional sheer curtain and a blind that takes color inspiration from the bedding. 

‘It’s important to ensure the fabric of the blind and curtain complement one another. Picking out a color within the fabric or pattern of the curtain is a good place to start,’ say Choate and Ugarte.  

8. Add a luxurious lining

(Image credit: Davide Lovatti)

Remember, a curtain always has two sides and that means you can have double the fun - a great option for curtain closet ideas.

While not strictly necessary for rustic linen alternatives, including a lining into traditionally formal curtains is essential for making them feel finished and substantial. 

To boost your luxury bedroom ideas, add a lining that adds a subtle touch of texture or deep color to channel thoughtful opulence. In this bedroom, a set of taupe curtains are lined and trimmed with a plush orange-red velvet for a delightful surprise.

9. Keep it neat with a lath and fascia heading

(Image credit: Kit Kemp)

If you’re not quite brave enough to dabble in the pelmet’s comeback, there is a more subtle way to create a neat heading to your bedroom curtains, explains interior designer Kit Kemp . 

‘A covered ‘lath and fascia’ is very different to a full pelmet and is a more contemporary hanging mechanism, formed of a corded metal track fixed to a board. The track is then hidden from view by a 5cm fascia.’ 

Usually covered in the same fabric as your curtains, a fascia allows for a neat and discreet curtain rail covering that doesn’t drop in front of the window, allowing maximum light in. 

‘It allows an elegant pinch pleat curtain to remain on show as the curtain sits in front of the fascia rather than under and behind it when the curtains are closed,’ says Kemp. 

10. Finish with a trim 

(Image credit: Kit Kemp)

If you never like to leave a job unfinished, tie up your curtain design with the ultimate closer. 

‘Add a contemporary twist to your window dressing with a decorative trim or pattern along the edges. This can make all the difference and can transform simple curtains into a modern design statement,’ say Choate and Ugarte.

‘We’re known for our love of detail and the same applies when it comes to curtains,’ says Kemp, who designed this bedroom with red curtains finished with a bright blue and red spotted trim.  

‘We love to add detail to the leading edge, whether it be a braid, trim, piping or contrast fabric’. 

Which curtains are best for the bedroom? 

When choosing curtains for the bedroom, it’s important to think about how you sleep. 

If you or any other occupants are light sleepers that tend to wake up with the sun, then you may want to choose curtains that are primed for blocking out light. Choosing heavier fabrics will do this, or consider adding a blackout liner to that lighter fabric you’ve fallen in love with. 

If you’re wedded to the idea of breezy, slightly sheer curtains, consider layering them, or teaming them with a fitted blind that can be employed when you need the room to be as dark as possible.

How do I arrange my bedroom curtains? 

In contemporary bedroom design, a laidback feel is what’s really on trend, so be prepared to let your curtains do what they want. If you are really keen to tie them back, cords and ties will feel more relaxed than wall-fixed holdbacks.  

Think also about the length of your curtains. 

‘For a look that feels more luxurious, go one step further and add additional length to the curtain so that it gathers at the bottom,’ say Ugarte and Choate. ‘An additional 3-6 inches is necessary for this technique. This style is more appropriate for rooms with less traffic, where the floors aren’t cleaned as often.’

Bedroom curtain ideas – 16 practical styles for a cozy space |

(Image credit: Paul Raeside)

Changing up your bedroom curtain ideas is an easy way to switch the vibe of your space. Through different curtain fabrics, styles, and ways of hanging, you can transform your room's energy. You could turn a more formal bedroom design into an ideal relaxing haven with just a small change.

Drapes are a major design factor when it comes to your bedroom ideas. They're a dominant element of the room's soft furnishings, while also working hard for privacy and keeping the light out when needed. 

'Windows and curtains define the mood of the space,' says interior designer Rohit Bhoite , 'so choosing them is a big decision.'

With help of some top interior designers, we've pulled together our favorite bedroom curtain ideas, ranging from different fabrics and styles to eye-catching patterns, pelmets, and trims.

1. Try wrap around bedroom curtains

(Image credit: timediacontent. com)

When we think of bedrooms as cocoons, drapes can play a big role in making that a reality.  Here curtains wrap around the whole room, making this space a textured, cozy and decadent room.

Also by enveloping the room with curtains, the light is blocked or filtered all through the day – a big factor in how to get a good night's sleep.

The made-to-measure sofa bed was inspired by designer John Galliano ’s love of the bias cut. The diagonal lines elongate its perfectly square two-meter dimensions.

2. Consider double bedroom curtain sets for more functionality

Layering drapes is a great modern bedroom idea that serves several purposes. The curtains add layering, inject color and also help modulate light that enters the room, giving you more control over both mood and privacy. 

'Privacy was a major concern in this apartment as the windows look out towards other buildings,' says Ravi Vazirani, interior designer, Ravi Vazirani Design Studio . 'The sheers help bring in light during the day and are paired with thicker curtains made with two shades of taffeta silk, that allow for complete darkness. The sheers contrast the richness of the tafetta and compliment the textures of the wall.'

3. Install blackout bedroom curtains

Blackout curtains are perfect for blocking out the glare of streetlights, the sun, or even passing cars. These are ideal for those who have trouble relaxing and need a pitch dark bedroom to fall into deep sleep. Making this small change in your master bedroom can help you sleep better.

‘If you like to sleep in a blackout, install full shades with side channels to avoid a light leak. If you prefer to rise with the sun, unlined drapery works well,’ advises Anna Beeber, interior designer, Champalimaud Design.

Bedroom curtains have to be practical and easily maintainable. 'So be careful about shape and form and fabric choices. Pick ones that are machine-washable,’ says interior designer Naomi Astley Clarke.

4. Make a modern bedroom curtain choice with sheers

There's something so charming about sheer curtains, and they're perfect for a luxury bedroom idea. Light and loose, sheers can make a space feel airy while still giving enough privacy during the day.

See-through drapes give this loft bedroom an ethereal, light, and airy look. These work for people who don't need complete darkness to sleep, and for rooms that already have some privacy – for example rooms that face private gardens rather than street-facing rooms.

'Depending on the drape of the material, different kinds of fabrics create drama within the space,' says Rohit. 'With multiple options of long/short curtains and sheers, the options to filler the light and to match the upholstery for the interior space are aplenty.' 

5. Bring in fabric blinds as an alternative to bedroom curtains

(Image credit: Grounded)

Roman blinds ensure whether the room is either well-lit or dim and moody. In a sense, these heavily affect the quality of the environment inside. When it comes to alternatives to curtain ideas, many interior designers advise blinds for modern bedrooms.

While choosing the blind material, you must think of the amount of maintenance you can give it. If you don't have a lot of time to indulge in household upkeep, you'll want to choose a fabric that can be easily unhooked from the railing and put in the washing machine. Opt out of super plush fabrics and textiles like taffeta, velvet, and faux silks; unless you can take them to the dry cleaners now and then. 

Also carefully consider the window length, width, and depth to determine the size of slats or fabrics. Ideally, deeper windows look best with the wide blind slat sizes, and small, shallow windows work better with row slats. 

Consider fabrics that have small stripes or subtle patterns so your window treatment doesn't overwhelm the bedroom. 'Roman shades are always a great alternative to curtain panels. You can dress up the design with added trims, pleats, or a fun fabric to make them unique to the room,' says Jenni Warsitz, interior designer and founder of By Design Interiors . 'They can also be streamlined, clean, and simple if needed. I love utilizing woven wood shades. They add a natural element to the room that can soften the space.”

6. Go for matching pelmet and curtains

While designing a bedroom, think of interesting window treatments that look grand. When designing a glam bedroom idea, bringing in pelmet frames that add structure to the drapes can really up the level of luxuriousness.

By using the same fabric on the pelmet and drape, you can create a pretty vignette by the window. Also, consider picking a curtain pole that coordinates with your fabric and suits your furniture style. From wooden rails to metallic ones, you can take your pick.

The thick drapery also aids in privacy, adding extra functionality.  'I like the idea of doing laser cut panel designs inside a window for privacy. It adds a decorative look while maintaining simplicity and low maintenance,' says Jessica. 

7. Try this wall-to-wall curtain idea

(Image credit:

In this architect's home, a single curtain is used along the whole width of the wall, rather than keeping to individual windows. The blush pink drapes soften the room, contrasting the raw concrete used in the bathroom.

Using wall-to-wall curtains can also work to trick the eye into believing that the bedroom is a long, voluminous space. As you cannot see the windows or walls behind the curtain, you are coaxed into believing that there is more than you can see.

This trick works particularly well in small bedrooms, like the guest bedroom. Choose light-toned cotton drapes to keep the interior feeling airy and relaxed.

8. Introduce a colour pop in your bedroom curtains

(Image credit:

In a largely neutral room, curtains can add a generous pop of color that defines your palette. It's a great way to bring an extra level to something like a beige or grey bedroom idea, and can be handled in a few different ways

You might want to create a color palette across your soft furnishings, mirroring the headboard, cushions, rugs and more in some of your color choices, or let the curtains do the heavy lifting by themselves. 

In this scheme, vibrant green patterned curtains create a focal point for this neutral, modern bedroom, an example of where your curtain ideas can really make a space. 

9. Add a decorative trim to your bedroom curtain

(Image credit: Essajees Atelier)

Curtains are a great way to bring new, interesting bedroom trends into your space without completely re-designing it. Ideas like fabric trims, which have become much more of a trend again in recent years, and can also easily be applied. 

Don't forget, curtains take up such a large area of your room's vertical space that they can be really influential in the overall look of your bedroom. Making choices with trims should play into the overall scheme. 

10. Don't be afraid of bold bedroom curtains

(Image credit:

When it comes to patterned curtains, the print makes all the difference. An Aztec-inspired print adds to the eclectic look in the bedroom. The wall art, the bedspread, and the printed cushions, all contribute to this boho bedroom idea. 

To boost the look of your drapes, you could also consider adding a lining that adds a subtle touch of texture or deep color. Ideally, choose a hue that can be seen across the space to give the overall look some grounding.

11. Decorate your bedroom with pleated curtains

(Image credit:

Pinch pleat curtains are an elegant, classic, and timeless choice. Often used with simple fabrics, they look smart without distracting from the rest of the room. 

Pinch pleated curtains essentially gather the pencil pleats into groups of two or more for a more decorative heading. This works with most types of fabric, but bear in mind that the more pleats, the more fabric is needed and so there will be an increase in the cost of the finished curtains.

Pencil or pinch pleats are the most traditional curtain heading and will work with all types of tracks and poles. They're the perfect choice for a classically pretty bedroom scheme that flirts with more traditional style elements.

12. Make way for XL-size bedroom curtain ideas

(Image credit:

Doesn't this room remind you of high-end stores with the plushest changing rooms? Long, cascading curtains can change the soul of a room, and take a small modern bedroom from drab to fab.

For added volume, drama, and grandeur, you could consider using extra long fabric that bunches up at the bottom. It's a hard look to get right, but when the fabric bunches up in just the right way, the effect is quite beautiful. 

13. Hang bedroom curtains above the window

(Image credit: Paul Massey)

Give height and drama by hanging the curtains higher than the window. This will create an illusion of a larger space, making it a great small bedroom idea. It also gives an estate-kind of feeling to the room, like the grand, big rooms of old palaces and resorts. 

Remember, when measuring the window, make sure to take the full length from the ceiling to the floor so the curtain drops with no gaps.

14. Try tie-back curtains for a whimsical look

(Image credit:

In rustic bedrooms, tie-back curtains can add a touch of softness. Tie-back curtains can be used to give volume, but here they were used with more delicate fabric to create a light and ethereal look.

For a stiff tie-back look, you could consider woven leather, beaded, or even tasseled fabrics. For the tie-backs, choose something modern like a leather tie or rope ties with wooden hearts.

If you have sheer curtains layered with heavier curtains, you could consider a sheer layer tied to the outer layer as a tieback. You could even use the fabric to create a flower shape for a tieback. Simple, DIY silver rope or knotted rope tiebacks are casual, yet classy.

If you want something more creative, then try ribbons. From a burlap and lace ribbon or even beaded upholstery ribbon, there are many unique ways to tiebacks.

15. Choose valance for your bedroom windows 

(Image credit: Paul Raeside)

While some may believe valances are an acquired taste, if done right, they can fit very well into bedrooms that have a certain grandeur to them. In this space, it's not only the 'grandma-chic' wallpaper, curtain fabric, and furnishings that give the room a vintage feel, but the shape of the valance too – complete with ruched texture and beaded trim.

Valances frame the top of the windows and give the entire space a decorative touch. They also bring in a touch of fabric but do not sacrifice natural light.

'One of my favorite tricks to make a statement, add a bit of personality, and soften a space is to design a decorative valance,' says Jennifer Morris, interior designer, JMorris Design .  'A full fabric shade can impede opening windows, whereas a 12-16” valance creates a touch of texture and pattern that is manageable.' 

In this design, belonging to style maker Pearl Lowe, the heavy velvet valance plays into the eclecticism of the furniture and bedroom wall decor ideas. 

16. Don't limit curtains only to windows 

(Image credit: Utkan Gunerkan)

A cozy, romantic bedroom for couples can be created just with the magic of curtains. But no, these don't always need to be hung by the windows. A bed canopy can make the space look glamorous and one you never want to leave.

Ensure your bed curtain fabric is made-to-measure and fits right above and across from your bed. To give it a more whimsical feel, consider adding string lights to the canopy, to give it a 'sleeping under the night sky' feel. 

If this seems a little complicated to execute, then hang curtain rods above your bed and create a makeshift canopy. Plump up the space with a few floral or lace pillows for a wonderful cottage look.  

What type of curtain is best for bedrooms?

For the uninitiated, curtains play a big role in our circadian rhythm or the internal clock that makes us go to bed or wake up. As curtains control the intensity of light coming into the room, these play a big role in ensuring whether we get good sleep or not.

As a rule of thumb, drapes should be mounted four to six inches above the window frame. While ideally curtains are sold in 108 inches, 96 inches, and 84 inches, it's always best to get custom-sized ones as they will fit perfectly on your windows and not cause any light leakage. Blackout privacy curtains are typically preferred in bedrooms, but it's a good idea to pair them with sheers or cottosn to not make the room look too caved in. 

It's best to opt for machine-washable fabrics for convenience. However, if you want a luxury vibe, consider a heavier, more sumptuous fabric like silk or taffeta. Silk looks rich and has a forever sheen but is prone to stains and UV damage. Velvet is heavy and excellent for insulating. It's also ideal for late sleepers but the material accumulates dust easily and can be difficult to maintain. Polyester is budget-friendly and easy to maintain. The only two drawbacks are it is flammable and it absorbs odors.

Another factor to consider is the colors. In most cases, cool tones work well, especially when the sunlight passes through them. As for patterned curtains, these can make a big statement in the room so perhaps think of them as wall art. Think of the kind of drama you'd like to create in your room and choose curtains as per that. 

If you prefer heavier drapes, a thick curtain rod is required so it can hold the weight of any fabric. Remember, the fixtures should blend in with the curtains. Usually, silk or satin drapes pair well with wrought iron or wood. Linens and cotton work with metal finishes.

Art Deco practically does not exist separately from the interior and is used to give an accent, zest to the room. The art deco style has many faces, so do not be upset if you did not find suitable photos of curtains for the bedroom in the first directory you are viewing. It is necessary to search more, this style does not limit the texture and pattern of the fabric. You can even see a geometric ornament or an ethnic motif. Art Deco consists of heavy, thick curtains, made mainly of velvet, satin or silk, which are decorated with drapery or gold tassels. The bedroom often uses a black and white or dark color scheme, decorated with expensive decor. nine0003

    Provence style is back in fashion

    Looking at the photo of modern bedroom curtains, it's hard not to stop at this gentle style made in pastel colors. Curtains, as a rule, are double with a flowing almost airy tulle. Curtains made in this style will plunge you into the southern French province, give you peace and emphasize the beauty of a city apartment. Curtains are selected in a darker color with a dense structure.

    Why is Provence good?

    • simplicity and elegance at the same time
    • only natural materials
    • floral prints or patterns
    • airiness and lightness

    You get a little Provence in your decor.

    Classic is always in fashion

    Modern trends dictate new fashion, but classic style cannot be forced out. Curtains will look good in a large bedroom with a panoramic window. The velvety frame will shimmer in the light and emphasize the elegant design. In the classics you will not find catchy patterns and ornaments. The design of the curtains in the bedroom will be monophonic, made in soft beige or brown tones. Classics are, first of all, traditions of pristine beauty and comfort. nine0003

    The future is high-tech.

    Modern style is all about practicality. Here you will not find excessive beauty - the technology of the future. Basically, the models are made of metallized coating or glass. May have glossy asymmetric additions. A hi-tech bedroom looks a bit fantastic. Roman blinds in neutral colors are recommended for this style.


    Refusal of excesses is the motto of this style. nine0003

    Spacious room done in soft colors with simple shapes and lines.

    Curtains should be light and unobtrusive. In the style of minimalism, you will not see any curtains or curtains, and the curtains for the bedroom are made in the form of rolled panels or blinds. But in a modern adaptation, this style does not exclude the tandem of roller blinds with a plain curtain. In this concept, it should not attract attention and become an accent, so we also adhere to neutral tones. nine0003

    Curtains in the bedroom, made in the style of minimalism, do not carry an additional idea, but captivate with their practicality in use.

    Trend of the season

    When choosing a color scheme, one can not say anything about the new curtains for the bedroom this season. Purple is everywhere in 2016: on hair, lips, clothes and, of course, curtains. It attracts not only with its versatility, but also with its unusualness. A variety of gamma gives an opportunity for fantasies, transforming any interior. nine0003

    Looking at the photos of modern curtains for the bedroom, you will find shades of purple from juicy and dark to soft and flowing shades.

    Soft colors from violet to lavender are perfect for the bedroom. You should not decorate the bedroom with bright purple curtains - they will not let you relax, they can cause anxiety and anxiety.

    The latest curtain trends for this year's bedroom do not want to lose ground in the new one, and are confidently maintaining and securing their place in the top list. nine0003

    After looking at fashionable photos of curtains for the bedroom in 2022, we can say with confidence that high-tech style and minimalism still hold the leading position. Designers predict the development and preservation of these styles, as well as their combination with rather unusual variations, so the fashionable design of windows in the new year will not only be rich, but also extravagant.

    A bedroom is a place where people regain strength and vitality at the end of a long day. Healthy sleep and well-being of a person directly depend on how correctly its environment is chosen. In this article, we will look at all the fashion trends and modern ideas in the design of curtains in the bedroom, as well as give a lot of illustrative photos with examples. nine0003

    Modern bedroom curtains play just as important a role as a comfortable bed in ensuring a good sleep and a comfortable stay. They should not only be beautiful, but also shade the sunlight well.

    The photo shows modern double curtains in the interior of the bedroom. This curtain design has become fashionable again.

    This season, designers recommend adopting several models of curtains that fully meet the requirements for bedroom curtains and are in line with fashion trends. Let's get to know them better. nine0003

    Draperies and tulle never go out of style. This is due to the fact that it is difficult to spoil any room with a combination of thick and transparent curtains on one ledge.

    In addition, their design (color, pattern, texture) is so diverse that you can always find a suitable option for any interior style. Consider the combinations of curtains and tulle that are relevant this season.

    Long curtains

    Classic drapes and curtains are very common this year in fashion design projects. Their cut and texture have remained unchanged for many years. nine0003

    The photo shows curtains in the traditional Provence style. This style is characterized by floral motifs in textiles.

    Only fabrics change, their appearance, quality, colors, which is natural. Production technologies are constantly being improved and modern materials cannot be completely identical to their historical counterparts.

    But in any performance, the classic looks dignified, elegant and gives the bedroom not only comfort, but also status.

    Distinctive features of classic curtains:

    • carefully adjusted cut;
    • fine fabrics;
    • exact proportions;
    • thoughtful and rich colors;
    • availability of decorative accessories.

    The traditional option for the bedroom - heavy sliding curtains made of dense silk with a pelmet of the same fabric and silk tulle. They are decorated with fringe, tassels and are collected on the sides with tacks or hairpins.

    This season the color of the curtains should be saturated, without shine, reminiscent of gouache paints.

    The tulle can be transparent or the same color as the curtains, but very diluted.


    Curtains with eyelets - plastic or metal rings framing the openings in the upper part of the fabric panels, are especially popular this season.

    They consist of two parts that snap into place and hold the fabric tightly. The result is a strong and comfortable fastening that allows the curtains to slide freely along the eaves and close and open them with one hand movement. nine0003

    This fastening allows you to combine curtains of different density on one window, and any fabric can be used for sewing them, so it is suitable for most modern interior styles.

    Only a round rod is suitable for eyelet curtains. Due to the fact that they are installed at the same distance from each other, the vertical folds on the fabric are even and the same.

    At the same time, the opening itself is almost imperceptible and it seems that the cornice penetrates the curtains themselves. nine0003

    If you don't plan to open the curtains completely in the bedroom, you can do without a cornice at all, and fix the curtains directly on the wall with the help of special hooks. This design looks very stylish and airy.

    The secret of the beauty of curtains on grommets is conciseness. They are not decorated with lambrequins, curtain accessories and lush draperies. The emphasis in their design is only on the texture and color of the fabric.

    The only embellishments that can be allowed with this type of window decoration are artistic caps on the eaves and side tiebacks that allow the curtains to be opened without being pulled apart. nine0003

    Curtains with photo printing

    The offspring of innovative technology - super trendy today curtains with 3D printing will be a real find for any bedroom.

    They are very widely and varied on the market, but if desired, they can also be ordered in a specialized salon, choosing to apply any pattern from a designer's drawing to a personal photograph.

    Photocurtains are best chosen when the interior of the bedroom is already formed. They will emphasize his individuality and become the main focus in him. nine0003

    The image on photocurtains does not fade in the sun and does not fade when washed, and only high-quality textiles can become the basis for it.

    Photo printing can be applied both to thick curtains made of fabrics such as satin, gabardine, satin, blackout, and to curtains made of translucent fabrics. The fastening of such curtains can be any, including eyelets.

    Today, photocurtains are used in all rooms in the house, but they are especially relevant for the bedroom. nine0003

    Photo printing on fabric can be flat and resemble a picture, or it can be three-dimensional and create the illusion of expansion and deepening of space atmosphere conducive to sound and healthy sleep.


    Lambrequin is a horizontal drapery that frames the upper part of the curtains. It does not carry a functional load, but is able to hide small flaws in the window structure, make the bedroom atmosphere even more comfortable and gives it a special charm. nine0003

    The photo shows a bedroom in a modern style with light curtains and a hard lambrequin.

    Initially, lambrequins were sewn only for drapes and curtains and looked about the same. Today they are combined with all types of curtains, even as strict as horizontal plastic blinds.

    Modern pelmets can be conditionally divided into several main types:

    • Soft. Drapery, consisting of a single piece of soft fabric or composed of several elements: flip-flops, swags, ties, de-frills, chill molds. nine0014
    • Hard (gang). The fabric for the gang is put on a rigid non-woven base, and its lower edge is left straight, cut along an oblique line, in the form of an arch or some specific pattern.
    • Openwork. A kind of rigid lambrequin, decorated with a through ornament, cut out over its entire surface using a laser.
    • Combined. It combines hard and soft types of lambrequins, alternating in any sequence. For example, when the cornice is covered by a flat strip of hard fabric, and soft draperies hang from its sides. nine0014

    There are no special restrictions on the combination of curtains and lambrequins. It all depends on the features of their design, interior style and personal preferences.

    The only thing to remember is that the lambrequin "eats" the height of the ceiling and should be used with caution in the bedroom, where it is less than 2.5 meters.


    Blackout curtains are one of the latest trends in the textile market.

    Rather than a type of curtain, it is a type of fabric that instantly won over consumers, inspired designers and transformed the traditional idea of ​​what modern bedroom curtains should be. nine0003

    Blackout fabric is able to almost completely (with an efficiency of up to 90-100%) cut off the light from the street, creating the most favorable conditions for sound sleep in the room.

    During the day, these curtains protect the bedroom from bright sunlight, and at night from flickering street lights, car headlights and neon advertising.

    This exceptional opacity is due to the chemical structure of the Blackout fibres. They are polyester threads with a satin weave, from which two-layer or three-layer textiles are woven. nine0003

    The more layers a fabric has, the more light-blocking it is. Despite the increased density and layering, the Blackout fabric is quite thin and drapes well.

    This innovative textile comes in a range of weights, opacity, colours, prints, the absence or presence of metallic coatings and backing.

    Various models of sliding and lifting curtains are sewn from it, among which you can always find a solution suitable for any specific interior. nine0003

    Of those that designers recommend for use in the bedroom, we can distinguish classic curtains, as well as Roman blinds and Japanese screen panels.

    Advantages of Blackout curtains for the bedroom:

    • increased opacity;
    • long service life without loss of presentation;
    • high heat and sound insulation properties;
    • resistance to fire;
    • easy care;
    • variety of models and colors. nine0014

    Roman Blinds

    Roman Blinds are a type of curtain that is very commonly used in the bedroom.

    They are strips of fabric, on the wrong side of which rigid horizontal slats are fixed.

    When the curtain is lifted, straight, even folds form on the curtain, overlapping each other with a slight overlap. Their length, with rare exceptions, does not fall below the window sill.

    Depending on the design, roman blinds are used in a single version (one wide blind for the entire window) or in a set of two curtains. nine0003

    One curtain is attached above the window or in the opening, and two are installed directly on the sashes. In order for the curtains to keep their shape and not sag, the fabric for their manufacture must be sufficiently dense.

    Most often, heavy wool, muslin, organza, coarse varieties of linen and cotton, taffeta are used for sewing Roman blinds for the bedroom.

    The design of these curtains is strict and concise, so in their classic form they are best suited for bedrooms furnished in the spirit of minimalism or high-tech style, and if they are made of bamboo linen or straw - for a bedroom in Japanese or ecological styles. nine0003

    But this does not mean that Roman curtains cannot be used in softer and more romantic interiors.

    First, they can be made from a fabric with a pattern, such as a flower.

    Secondly, they are perfectly combined with other types of curtains: curtains, lambrequin, tulle, muslin.

    In these cases, it is enough that the partner curtains match the interior, and the Roman models will provide the room with shading.

    The most fashionable combination today is Roman blinds and drapes, made from the same plain fabric in muted natural colors: olive, plum, cherry, coffee. nine0003

    In this combination, the rigid horizontal folds of Roman blinds are especially effectively combined with vertically elongated draperies on the curtains and look very stylish.

    Austrian Curtains

    Austrian Curtains is another kind of pull-up curtains, just below the window sill, that is appropriate in the bedroom. Sometimes they are confused with French and Roman curtains.

    They differ from the former by less lush ruffles, collected not along the entire length of the canvas, but only at its base, and from the latter by smoother, softer lines and delicate pastel colors. nine0003

    In addition, these curtains love curtain decor, and they are often decorated with fringes, bows, ribbons, butterfly and flower hairpins.

    Austrian curtains go well with all types of pelmets and other curtains.

    They can be made from a soft but strong fabric and hung together with tulle. In this case, they will play the role of the main curtains, and protect the bedroom from sunlight.

    And you can sew "Austrian" from light transparent fabric: tulle, organza, chiffon, veil and combine with thick curtains. In this case, they will perform the function of curtains. nine0003

    According to designers in 2018, Austrian curtains are the most popular way to decorate windows in interiors made in gentle and romantic styles such as Mediterranean, Italian, Provence, vintage, shabby chic.

    Due to the fact that the nature of the "Austrian" is very romantic, in the bedroom the most impressive look models made of plain fabric with a smooth shiny surface: silk, taffeta, cambric, polyester, voile, saturated or pastel colors. nine0003

    Simple "rustic" fabrics such as chintz, cotton, fine linen with a naive floral print are no less often used for sewing Austrian curtains, but they are more simple in the bedroom and are more suitable for the kitchen or nursery.


    Thread or muslin curtains came to us from the hot East and are specially designed to create an atmosphere of exquisite relaxing bliss in the room.

    They are thick curtains of smooth and dense threads falling in an even waterfall. There are a lot of types of Kisei. nine0003

    It can be plain and multi-colored, fabric or metallic, simple or complemented with all sorts of solid decorations: beads, sequins, glass beads.

    Such a variety of textures and colors allows you to choose the right model of filament curtains for any interior. It is able to harmoniously fit not only into an artsy oriental, romantic European bedroom.

    Even an avant-garde hi-tech interior will look complete if you match curtains with threads with metallic inclusions, and kisei made of natural tightly twisted cotton ropes with wooden tubes strung on them will perfectly complement the laconic Japanese style. nine0003

    Despite the air texture, thread curtains are able to cut off and scatter light.

    But their light protection is the same as that of tulle or curtains and they are not enough to completely shade the room, so in the bedroom it is customary to use muslin in combination with other thicker curtains.

    Kiseya is very plastic, it can be easily assembled into the most fancy draperies, but even in a simple, straightened state, it looks no less impressive.

    For the bedroom it is better to choose a muslin made of twisted chenille threads in dark saturated colors.

    Curtains made of light threads are used in this room only as a decor, over other curtains, as an original canopy on the bed or as a light partition that allows you to separate the sleeping place from the rest of the room.

    Benefits of using muslin in the bedroom:

    • Filament curtains do not interfere with the natural ventilation of the room. nine0014
    • With proper selection of colors and textures of threads, as well as the appropriate curtain decor, they can fit into most interior styles.
    • Drapes beautifully and goes well with all types of curtains and blinds.
    • The length of the kisei can be any, it is easy to change it by simply cutting off the extra centimeters with scissors.
    • Thread curtains are multifunctional. I use them not only for windows, but also for dividing a room into zones, and also as a canopy over the bed. nine0014

    Japanese panels

    Japanese screen panels appeared in our interiors not so long ago, but they quickly became popular and are not going to leave the pages of fashion magazines on interior design.

    They are even, tightly stretched fabric sheets on thin frames or with the help of a weighting bar.

    The average width of canvases is most often 40-60 cm, but panels with a width of more than a meter can be used on spacious panoramic windows. nine0003

    Screen panels occupy a minimum of space, can be of any length and made of fabrics of different textures and any colors.

    The sheets move freely along the paths of the profile cornice, alternating them in different ways, placing them in a row or in parallel, and thereby achieving the most comfortable natural lighting.

    On one window, depending on its width, from 3 to 6 panels are used. They can be made from fabrics of different densities and used in the same way as curtains with curtains. nine0003

    Recently, it is also not forbidden to combine them with other types of curtains, most often with tulle in simple colors and almost without folds.

    For the bedroom, Japanese screen curtains are also good because they can serve as doors for wardrobes and light and compact partitions for zoning space.

    It's no secret that no matter how quiet and peaceful the atmosphere in this room is, it will never be superfluous to separate the bed from the rest of its space. nine0003

    Curtains in a classic style

    By color, as well as by the texture of the fabric, the curtains often echo the bedspread, sofa cushions, upholstery of chairs, flooring and other furnishings. When choosing curtains for a bedroom decorated in a classic style, it is not necessary to be limited to plain models.

    Although the 2018 fashion does not dictate strict rules, several trends can still be distinguished, for example:

    • the color of the curtains should be one tone lighter or one tone darker than the walls or the overall color scheme of the bedroom;
    • curtains with an ornament or a pattern will look best against the background of plain walls, echoing the main color with the small interior details that we mentioned earlier;
    • lush designs with a lambrequin and two or three types of curtains are more likely to not suit bedrooms with a lot of items and decor.

    Modern classic models are often simplified, approaching the laconic Scandinavian curtains, or become more complex due to the combination of different materials and the use of decorative accessories. Instead of one traditional curtain, you can find two or even three adjacent canvases. nine0003

    At the same time, patterned or mesh tulle is often the only window decoration. White translucent curtains are particularly versatile. It is always easy to supplement them with pickups, lambrequin, frill, fringe, having achieved the desired result.

    Depending on how often you need to open and close the curtains, the most convenient method of fastening is chosen - drawstring, ties, rings with clips.
