Zebra blinds provide ambient light and transform a room into a cosy place to relax. You can choose between motorised or non-powered. Solid horizontal stripes that alternate with sheer give you enough privacy and block 99% of the sun’s rays.

  • Double Roller Blinds

You may have total control of sunlight entering the room. The warm hue of earth tones is a safe bet to match just about any furniture. Go for soft pastels to blend with a minimalist interior design.

Flowing Curtains

  • Natural Fabrics

Cool and crisp cotton and linen are popular curtains for being hypoallergenic, stylish, and affordable.

If you want a bit of sheen, silk material is timeless, classy, elegant – and quite expensive. Chinese silk is suitable for bedrooms and private nooks in the house.

Wool is not only used as blankets but also as curtain material.

A caveat: keep wool curtain away from the kitchen because it absorbs – and retains – smell.

  • Saturated Colours

You may experiment with colours, but the trend in window curtains for 2023 points to natural earth colours. A shade of brown blends beautifully with a mocha or beige interior design, while plant motifs of the green variety look great for the outdoor patio. A cool shade of blue or grey is a good choice for bedrooms, particularly the gentlemen’s quarters. It would be great to combine light colours with specks of solid earth colours to break the monotony.

  • Minimalist

The minimalist window curtain in beige, light grey, or ecru soothes your eyesight and makes the room pretty chic and elegant. The good news is that minimalism makes the texture stand out.
