What's in the market

Curtains on your windows serve a lot of purposes: for privacy reasons, protection against the sun, to filtre light and above all, to decorate your abode. Browse through the curtain trends in 2015 to get an idea what is going to hit the shelves.

  • Colours

Pastels are always classics as well as floral prints that will brighten any room. Indigos, sapphires and sulphur are also in as well as mute colours such as beige, brown and white.

  • Styles

When it comes to curtain designs, try something new if you are tired of the same old curtains. Experiment with valances and combine them with Roman shades. For the kitchen, try cafe curtains that will cover the lower part of the window whilst allowing light into the room. The upper part makes a nice decoration and homey feel to the kitchen. For the living and dining rooms, consider tiered curtains. You can opt for sheer curtains that will give your space lots of light and appear airy. You can also put heavier drapes on top of sheer curtains for added privacy.

  • Finishes

Indoor curtains for 2015 are not only available in different sizes, styles and colours, they also come in various finishes. There are even fade and stain resistant fabrics that will make maintenance of your curtains an easy job. In addition, most are machine washable so you don't have to make trips to the cleaners often.

Other trends

Curtain trends in 2015 will also include draperies that are energy efficient so you don't have to pay much more than necessary for your electricity or gas bills. Think of getting blackout or room darkening curtains especially for the bedrooms. These types of curtains come in different fabrics such as velvet, suede, microfibre and cotton.
