Whether you’re about to redecorate your home or you just like to keep an eye on what’s popular, these curtain trends are worth taking a look at. Some are already quite popular, while others are trends we likely won’t see in full force until the year is well under way.
Blackout curtains are expected to become more popular
You used to only find blackout curtains in hotels but today you can find them in house all over the country. One of the reasons they’re becoming more popular is because there are now dozens and dozens of options. In the past, blackout curtains were functional but not particularly attractive. With designers taking the reins, they can now be found in almost any pattern or color you can imagine.
Prints are becoming popular again
If you pay any attention to fashion or interior design trends then you likely know that patterns come in and out of favor. One year, the masses are searching for solid colors and the next all they want are patterns. This is true of curtains too. In 2017, we expect curtains with patterns to be incredibly popular, especially in shades of gray.
Greens seem to be very popular
According to top designers and trend setters, tropical colors are going to be very popular. This includes every shade of green, shades of brown, and floral prints. This makes sense since there’s an increasingly popular move to focus on the planet – and what colors come to mind when you think of earth? Likely brown and green!
Different opacity options
It really is an exciting time to be involved in the world of window coverings. These days, there are so many levels of opacity that any consumer can find exactly what they’re looking for. For example, you likely want a blackout curtain in your child’s bedroom to help them sleep, but you want something a little more opaque in a communal room like the living room or dining room.
Sleep has become something that is on everyone’s mind, as scientists learn more about the importance of sleep hygiene and the ways in which not getting enough sleep can negatively affect both our short-term and long-term health. As a result, we’re seeing a lot more people thinking about using blackout curtains in their bedroom as a way to improve their sleeping experience.
