Most people refer to the kitchen as the heart of the home, but your living room is where it all happens. In fact, a survey shows that Americans view these rooms as equally valuable.
After all, your living room is where you spend hours relaxing, entertaining friends, or binge-watching your favorite TV series. Give it the attention it deserves with these cool curtain ideas to bring a touch of class to your leisure time.
Let the Sunshine In
Provided you don’t have neighbors breathing down your neck, sheer curtains are a great option for living rooms. They’re a fantastic way to add luxurious natural light and spacious appeal to smaller rooms.
They reduce glare on your TV screen and protect your furniture from direct sunlight. Yet they still allow you to gaze upon the great outdoors from inside.
Bold Colored Curtain Ideas
Red or burgundy living room curtains add an element of drama to your room. Pastel yellow adds a dash of unexpected cheer. Multiples colors in each drop show off your quirky nature and add a laid back air to your space.
If you don’t want to go all out with colorful creations, consider a neutral base color with contrasting trim. When combined with matching pops of color in your soft furnishings, these kinds of curtain designs create a custom curated feel.
Liven up a neutrally-toned living room with blocks of color on your curtains. They’re the middle ground for those who want something more eye-catching than contrasting trim but don’t want to commit to full-color curtains.
Floor to Ceiling Curtains
Curtains that take up as much space as possible can make your ceiling appear higher. They’re undeniably luxurious too, creating an opulent warm ambiance.
For a truly unique feel, custom curtains featuring your own designs are the way to go. You can invent patterns, and florals, to suit your style or say it all with a handwritten script matching the theme and decor of your room.
Taffeta curtains in pale pastels are ideal for creating a romantic feminine look. These beautiful curtains also let plenty of light in and can create a striking contrast with contemporary furniture.
Metallic accents are so hot right now and you can include them in curtain designs for living rooms too. Thin threads or sparkles of gold, silver or bronze in your curtains add instant glamor to even the most muted color scheme.
Curtains that are too long for your windows and puddle onto the floor below look so plush. They’re ideal to use if your windows aren’t quite square or your floor is slightly less than level.
Thanks to all the excess fabric involved, puddled curtains provide better insulation than their shorter counterparts too.
