New in the design of Curtains 2017 (400+ Photos): Modern and fashionable options
How many curtain decisions have you changed? I think there is more than one. Therefore, here I tried to collect for you a concentrate of useful information, photos and style for 2017.
Regardless of the style of your home, the first object when entering a room is the window and, accordingly, its framing. Therefore, the way the windows are treated has an important influence on the atmosphere and style of the room to a certain extent. As with all other aspects of good design, I want to give you the best tips, ideas and photos..
Fashion trends of the outgoing year
Upholstery, curtains, drapes, drapes are all decorative window treatments, and the terms are often used interchangeably to refer to the length and density of the material. The curtain adds extraordinary personality to the space, framing the room in fresh foliage or lush velvet. While their main purpose is decor, they also perform certain functions: they filter or block light, sometimes they act as thermal insulation..
Curtain to create personality
Hanging high from the ceiling and draped near the outer edges of a window, a curtain can make a room and window appear larger. In this form, it becomes an ideal companion in combination with another type of window frame – wicker canopies for wood or classic wood curtains..
Classic use case
Roman leaves a rich drapery impression with a functional design that opens and closes easily. When closed, they look like a quality panel. And when they rise, they fold up like an accordion and look like in the Valence style, like a cloud. Roman is available in many fabrics to create a rich color or texture in a room.
Create rich colors and textures
The different styles fit easily into almost any interior – traditional, family or even modern. And don’t think that form beats function. There are many options for Roman – you can consider models that open from top to bottom, bottom to top, models without guides or with heat-insulating details are possible. Roman fit for any window shape.
Diverse opening option
The idea behind rollerblades is pretty simple. In the lowered state, the curtain fits snugly against the window pane, and when raised, it is wound on a cylindrical rod. An obvious plus of this design is the variety of fabrics available for finishing: blackout fabric, synthetic or cotton, as well as various patterns.
Very easy to use
The technology even allows you to print your own images, photographs, creative work or imagined designs on roller blinds. I have friends who have a cafe with its logo and menu printed on a roller and mounted in a window that faces the street for advertising.
Photo printing – looks impressive
The wireless lift function creates an additional aesthetically pleasing look on these curtains. Roller blinds are a simple, budget-friendly window treatment option.
Tulle is an indispensable thing when framing a window for the first line of decor. It is light, spacious and elegant. Tulle can be decorated in different ways on the window, creating a partial view when opened, or completely closed for privacy. Tulle in dark color will fit perfectly into the atmosphere of the bedroom to darken the space for a comfortable sleep.
Transparent curtains for large windows
These are roller shielding materials that provide full visibility on the street, while at the same time screening the room, making them opaque from the outside.
Blackout curtains for living room
If you have a starry view or just want a street view and plenty of sunshine in your home, then you need to consider how to protect yourself from the sun and control the ultraviolet rays that will pass through these curtains..
Lightproofs are good for the bedroom
A significant plus of this option is high energy efficiency, since we all want to save the resources of our planet by lowering our personal electricity bills. Translucent is another trendy way to handle windows in today’s environmentally friendly world..
Pleated ones have a structure with crisp pleats cascading across your window. Many people do not like the sunlight passing through the crevices between the folds when the shade is in the closed position..
Pleated curtain design
This is an innovative option – light and carefree “outdoor” (in English outdoor) are also made of a material that allows sunlight to pass through. But at the same time, they block heat, glare and UV radiation..
Well suited for gazebos
The airy fabric is propelled by the slightest breeze, yet protects and ensures privacy. If you live in a climate with strong sunshine, outdoor ones can be installed on the outside of the house so that the sun does not reach your windows and heat up the place like an oven. Outdoor ones can look like a rack to be used in the yard for a picnic, on the porch and other outdoor areas for a good outdoor recreation and entertainment..

Stylish curtain ideas
If you keep up with the times, you prefer refined, elegant and environmentally friendly models of curtains..
Fortunately, Art Nouveau for windows looks exciting. Before starting to create a modern look, choose a shade that contrasts with the color of the walls..
Art Nouveau asymmetry
The absence of all kinds of curtain garters will provide the next step in the transition to a modern look, since not only smoothness and gloss are appreciated, but also safety and convenience..
For a dramatic focus, when working with oversized geometric or graphic designs in any shade, I prefer Roman ones if I want the fabric to feel in space. Choose steel hardware, chrome or nickel finish, and achieve a minimalist, modern look with motorized blinds or blinds.
Creative approach to window decoration
Creative curtain design is limited only by the sky and the clouds. You can apply any design, photograph, or artwork to the curtain fabric. From Photoshop to print-on demand to create your own fully personalized curtain from your own photo gallery, you can use a variety of advanced techniques to bring your vision to life..
Approaching creatively – embroidery on the curtain
You can make it yourself – with or without seams. It is not difficult. Add braid, fabric ribbons, metallic trims, bows, ruffles, or contrasting trimmed fabrics.
Elegant ideas for windows
Achieving the graceful look of windows usually requires careful selection of fabrics. Romantic shades and draperies are irrelevant here. Softness, layering and deep decadent folds are the key. An oversized curtain that hangs from floor to ceiling is especially elegant, as it makes your room visually taller and increases the distance to the ceiling.
Visually increase the space
Use different textures and colors on layers and your elegance factor will increase noticeably.
Unique curtain ideas
It’s time to get out of the boring and indecisive look of our curtains and stop thinking that all we can do is come up with something neutral. To get a custom look, you need to learn how to choose the amount and quality of light that is transmitted from above and below..
Boho style for inspiration
For unique drapery ideas, I suggest:
- frill corners;
- drapery with lambrequins;
- double material curtains in the form of color blocks or wide stripes.
Drapery with lambrequins
Here are some more ideas to try:
- mirror engraving;
- matte effect;
- leather inserts.
Create a matte effect
Or whatever design your heart desires to print.
Use your curtains to decorate not only windows but doors as well. Think of them as room dividers, alcove canopy, bed canopy, and focal points above the headboard..

Ideas for different rooms
Since the kitchen is humid and constantly changing temperatures, faux wood blinds are an excellent choice as they will not warp or fade. They are natural fans and are durable even for the most active housewives..
For any style in the kitchen
They are also unpretentious in care and maintenance. I have a bad story when, for example, I dip my hand mixer in the sauce and the egg yolk mixture flies onto the walls and furniture. But even in this situation, my blinds very quickly become clean again, it is worth wiping them with a damp cloth and they are ready for the next disaster..
Practical wooden blinds
For the bedroom, dark shades are great, creating twilight. Color shades are also appropriate. Having a soft diffusion of light, they sufficiently isolate it during any season, and stimulate awakening. Still calm enough not to interfere with falling asleep. To keep this room calm, add automation to let your curtains act on their own.

Ideas for treating windows in the living room
This is where you’ll make a statement about your home, entertain and protect large furniture that you don’t want to ruin. Sun or honey shades are great protectors from direct sunlight, and they also allow you to regulate the amount of light and create a welcoming look. Spacious bay windows look great Roman – soft and elegant.
Roman shades are suitable for large windows.
For tall windows, or those that you want to be tall, choose any tulle and then add long curtains for a dramatic, finished look. Add valence to get a “wow window”. Allow yourself to experiment with bold patterns, mix and match fabrics in your living room. After all, the main thing for the property of a living room is to make you feel that you want to live in it.!

Dining room ideas
Important events are celebrated here – a family ritual or a big holiday that comes several times a year. If you like formality, I suggest tall draperies because they will help create a floor-to-ceiling effect to get a sense of height and importance..
Feelings of importance and splendor
It’s dramatic, but still interesting. If you’re in a more laid-back mood, roman or roller skates will keep the space warm and intimate with a soft, homely feel. Honeycomb or pleated – a great choice for those visiting the dining room for all celebrations – large or small.
Feeling warm and homely
Ideas on the door
The window covering option on the door always seems to scare people. This is a bias, however, as there are many alternative solutions that suit your style..
For sliding glass doors
For sliding glass doors, the first choice may be vinyl panel blinds, which are installed on the walkway at the top of the window and can completely cover the desired area, just like curtains..
Blinds for sliding doors
A series of panels opens and closes on a track system. They can also be used as a room divider when installed on a ceiling. A variety of materials are offered from base vinyl to sunscreens and natural wicker wood. Many people choose popular verticals, but panel blinds are a more modern and versatile choice as they are more comfortable..
Panel curtains for sliding structures
Hanging drapery is also a popular style that adorns glass doors, however, they are less convenient as they need to be constantly moved..
