Curtain Styling Ideas, Tips, & Trends For 2023


Be the trendsetter among your peers with these curated curtain styling and designs to kick-start a beautiful, brand-new year ahead!

For those of you who had the opportunity to pick out new curtains to match the new year’s theme, you probably already know that choosing the right design can feel somewhat like a gamble; trying to predict whether the pattern or colour you’re most drawn to is still going to be on-trend next year is quite tricky. 

To help you out, our designers have shortlisted these curtain styling trends forecasted to come through in 2023, and are here to stay.

1. Layering with sheer curtains.

Sheer curtains introduce natural light into your space while blocking out visual clutter from the outside world.

More often than not, your living room sets the first impression of your home in the eyes of your guests – and most of the interior design thinking and effort starts here because the living room sets the tone for the rest of your home environment. For homes big and small, sheer curtains have the special ability to grace a space with sophistication and spaciousness. The best part of tailored sheer curtains is that you can easily pair them with other types of curtains or accessories, making the combination look more stunning compared to when they stand alone.

2. Abstract Shapes and Lines.

Abstract motifs on your curtains can bring through your unique personality – if you have an inner artist.

Today’s design-forward prints offer a pop of artsy personality to spaces without taking away the guests’ focus on centerpieces. If you opt for curtain designs that are produced in small batches, you can be sure that your selected design remains contemporary. However, if you want to play on the safe side, there are many options that exude the playfulness you want to achieve with subtle abstract lines or shapes that are scaled back to blend in with the rest of the room. The best thing about abstract motive curtains is that they come in a large variety of shapes, colours, and designs suiting every preference and taste.

3. Blackout Curtains.

Blackout curtains are no longer just a luxury to have when you’re staying at a hotel – it has become a must-have for many modern homes thanks to their special ability to block out the rest of the world and create a safe, tranquil, shut-eye space. The blackout curtain’s dense and thick material will put you to sleep any hour of the day and is best for total privacy while also filtering exterior noise, and reducing energy costs.

Unlike conventional curtains, blackout curtains block 100% of light. A cheaper alternative is the dimout curtains that only block up to 90% of light.

4. Ceiling-concealed curtain tracks.

For homes undergoing renovation, consider briefing your contractors to build your plaster ceilings in a way to conceal your curtain tracks.

Installing a ceiling-concealed curtain track is a short-cut, surefire way to achieve a chic and fashionable interior design while giving your space a larger-than-life appearance. We recommend this curtain style for spaces with double-volume windows, sliding door windows, floor-to-ceiling windows (also known as curtain windows), and other custom window designs that blend well with tailor-made curtain designs.

You should also consider upgrading to motorised curtain tracks to complete the ultimate luxurious curtain aesthetics.
