Curtains for living room in 2024, as in any other season, should be chosen primarily based on the characteristics of the room, personal taste preferences, room style and practical considerations. That is, the fabric for such textiles must be wear-resistant, easy to wash and iron, and not subject to fading. In addition, before choosing a curtain, you should carefully study the range of modern manufacturers. Indeed, in addition to the fashion for external characteristics, they adhere to innovations in the manufacture of fabrics. Let’s consider them in more detail.
The boom in cheap synthetics is long gone. After all, the only advantages of curtains made of artificial materials are easy washing and low cost. But the curtains in the living room are not hand towels, and there is no strong contamination on them. Therefore, it is better to choose fabrics that breathe, do not exude toxins and other harmful substances. Especially since the fashion of 2024 says so. These materials include:
They are combined with different styles, do not attract dust, do not become electrified and retain their original cleanliness for a long time.
It does not interfere with full-fledged air exchange, but in the cold seasons of the year it perfectly retains heat inside the room. Woolen curtains are very dense, so they can protect from sunlight if the windows face south, and from prying eyes if we are talking about the first floor of the house.
Refers to the most durable materials with a smooth and fine texture. The fabric has a characteristic sheen, which is not suitable for all styles of interiors. In addition, silk curtains are more expensive than other varieties.
It is similar in its characteristics to the previous version. If the curtain consists of mixed satin, then it will be even stronger and more durable, which fully justifies the high price.
It is definitely not worth associating modern curtains exclusively with the classic fabric version on the curtain. The modern assortment is represented by roll-curtains, Italian, Roman and Japanese curtains. In addition, curtains can be combined with blinds or panel options.
The latest curtain solutions also involve the use of the following natural materials:
- rice paper;
In addition, the matting option is now considered popular. Its quality characteristics are high, and the price is quite affordable.
to mention separately Roman blinds, which are most suitable for modern designs. They do not weigh down the interior and, thanks to the variety of colors, can complement any room design. Roman blinds are undeniably at the peak of popularity in 2024.
Roman curtains are more suitable for small rooms than long classic ones. They will provide the convenience of using a window with a balcony door. In addition, they reliably protect from the sun’s rays a room in which natural light is directed only part of the day.
Due to the fact that both minimalism and details characteristic of the Baroque style are now used in the interiors, it is permissible to choose curtains, both plain and with a pattern.
Earthy, vegetable and cold shades are in fashion. The color palette of monochromatic solutions is predominantly neutral:
In the interior, you can use several monophonic, but at the same time canvases of different colors. For example, white and turquoise, beige and brown, mustard and blue.
Curtains of bright colors are applicable only for rooms with a concise and simple design. In addition, you should not use rich dark colors in small living rooms. For lovers of a bright palette, designers have brought into fashion the colors of precious stones: ruby, amber, malachite.
As for patterns, these can be floral ornaments, animal prints, abstraction and geometric shapes. However, canvases with ornaments will not be combined with patterned wallpaper. If the wall coverings are plain and simple, then it is permissible to choose curtains with a pattern. If there are painted pictures and photo wallpapers on the walls, then the curtains should be plain.
First of all, when choosing curtains, you need to rely on the design of the room. Minimalist, Scandinavian and rustic styles are all the rage this year. As well as loft, high-tech and eco-style. But this does not mean that baroque lovers were left without options.
The aristocratic style implies a lot of assemblies, draperies and potholders on the windows. Jacquard and silk are suitable as fabrics for this design, but you can also experiment with velvet.
The style refers to simple and versatile designs, so the windows in this case can be left without curtains at all. But if such openness is not an option, then plain materials in a neutral palette with a minimum amount of decor will do. If you want to choose textiles with a pattern, you should give preference to large ornaments.
In this case, only uniform curtains in muted colors are suitable. They can be combined with plain white tulle.
In this case, it is quite possible to use canvases of bright colors, but without excessive decor. Hi-tech loves silver colors, so the curtains can be chosen from the gray palette in satin. In addition, black, white and red options are suitable.
In 2024, there is a fashion for complete freedom, so there are no restrictions on the combination of curtains and curtains. Designers combine cotton and organza, velvet and airy tulle in their works. The main thing is that the design of textiles has something in common in one of the characteristics: color, pattern or texture.
Thus, when choosing curtains for the living room, natural materials with quality characteristics should be considered. If the curtain is not a design accent of the living room, then neutral calm colors and prints should be preferred. As for living rooms with a non-standard layout, it is permissible for them to consider Roman blinds, which are in great demand in 2024.
