2022 Curtain & Drapery Trends for Your Home

2 min read

Updating the look and feel of a room doesn’t have to be expensive—curtains and drapery can change a room’s aesthetic by introducing a new color, texture or pattern. This month, show your windows some love by trying out one of these popular curtain trends!

Take a Minimalist Approach to Replacement Curtains

Designers are recommending a scaling back of intricate design or adornment for your living room curtains. Instead of selecting curtains with lace, ruffles or pom-poms, try the sleeker look of a simple curtain panel. Elegance can be found in simplicity; your curtains should remain understated so as not to detract from the structure of your windows or the abundance of natural light they provide.

Explore Classic and Natural Colors

In line with a more minimalist approach to drapery, 2022 curtains are trending towards cleaner, earthier colors. Rather than multicolored or patterned curtains, select drapes in neutral colors like cream, white or slate gray. You may also wish to go even more natural with olive, forest green or deep blue. Such colors can add warmth and coziness to a room while acting as a subtle backdrop to striking furniture or decor items.

Support Sustainability 

Environmentally-friendly home upgrades are becoming increasingly popular, and that trend continues with curtain and drape materials. Curtains have historically been made from polyester and other unsustainably sourced fibers, and may contain harmful dyes. Keep your home and the world beyond healthy with sustainable fabrics like organic linen, cotton and hemp, and avoid curtains with wrinkle-free finishes that may contain harmful chemicals. 

Try a Romantic, French-Inspired Aesthetic

Interested in a home design that leans toward the romantic? Introduce gauzy, Provence-style drapes into your living and bedrooms. With their simple designs and clean, natural color palettes, they’re on trend; their French-inspired shape and flow makes them a classical, timeless element in any room.

Embrace Blinds as an Alternative 

Blinds can be both stylish and practical, especially in rooms that may frequently collect dust, debris or smells, like kitchens and bathrooms. Blinds can be custom fit for your window shape and are less likely to require cleaning or ironing to maintain their structure and appeal. Moreover, blinds come in a range of materials that can be seamlessly matched to the existing design of your living spaces; explore eclectic options like bamboo or wood, or go for the classic, clean linen.
