Curtains in the hall modern options

Life without fashion seems boring and dull. Just imagine: from year to year you wear identical suits, shoes and handbags, on your face a uniform and unchanging makeup. The husband constantly drives the car of the same brand, and in the apartment there is once and for all bought furniture. There is nothing to talk about curtains: from time to time, of course, you will get a new kit. But he is new only in terms of age. Style, style and fabric are always the same. Have you imagined this horror? Fortunately, everything around us is developing, fashion trends are changing, and we are changing with them.


The coming year promises a lot of interesting new products in the design of home interiors. And the first thing you should pay attention to is the curtains in the room. The photo of the samples of 2016 shows modern fabrics for sewing curtains of any style, because it is clothes for windows that turn the interior of the room into a single ensemble.



How to choose fabric for curtains?

It is important to choose the right curtain fabric; for this you need to know its types.

Heavy dense fabrics are used for sewing basic or night curtains:

  • Gabardine;
  • tapestry;
  • brocade;
  • velours;
  • velvet;
  • wool;
  • atlas;
  • blackout.



Lightweight, airy fabrics are good for day curtains and trim elements:

  • Silk;
  • veil;
  • chiffon;
  • tulle;
  • taffeta;
  • organza;
  • grid.



Mixed fabrics of various densities are widely represented. To them, as well as to the most beautiful openwork lace, not a single woman will remain indifferent.


Companion fabrics always look modern. They complement each other in drawing, color and texture and are often used in interiors, where two color shades coexist in decoration.

From companion fabrics, you can come up with many different combinations of curtains in the living room. For example, curtains with lambrequins and bandeau (when one fabric is used for sewing the main fabric, and the top design is sewn from another); two-layer straight curtains - the most common use of fabrics - “sisters”. Such a design also looks advantageous: the lower (main) curtain is straight, and the upper (finishing) is decorated with drapery.



Tip: If you are lost in the variety of offered designs, be aware that companion fabrics will always come to your rescue. First decide: which of the shades present in the decoration of the room, you want to emphasize. Then, based on this, choose the material of the appropriate color for sewing the main curtains.

The supplied companion fabric is suitable as a trim. From it, you can sew original sofa cushions that will tie together curtains and upholstered furniture into a single ensemble.


Drapery fabrics, both domestic and foreign, and now there are a huge number, and by 2016 there will be another collection of new designs.

Next year at the peak of fashion will be fabrics:

  • with embroidery;
  • with monograms;
  • with inscriptions and symbols;
  • with ethnic patterns;
  • ikat (fantasy blurry patterns);
  • batik;
  • with sequins and rhinestones;
  • with metallized threads.



The curtains made of shiny textiles, depending on the lighting in the living room, create a unique play of light and shadow. They easily and organically fit into the interiors in the oriental style and in the art deco style. For lovers of luxury and antiquity, there are also beautiful interior fabrics made of natural silk with patterns that were popular in the XYII-XYIII centuries.

How these chic samples look can be seen in the photos presented on the websites of factory manufacturers.

Not so long ago, the loft style burst into the world fashion of residential interiors. It resembles a home in an abandoned industrial enterprise. This style is distinguished by industrial echoes in the details of the interior: open metal pipes, brick in the decoration of the walls, rough finishing of all surfaces, etc.



Fabric artists immediately responded to the request and released a line of samples of the "factory" series. The curtains for the hall in such apartments are similar to polyethylene or mesh sheets, or to aluminum foil (material for thermal insulation of pipelines).


Between these two polar styles are more traditional: classic, modern, minimalism, fusion and others. For each of these areas, the 2016 collection presents a rich selection of modern curtain fabrics. Flax, cotton, chintz, matting, familiar to everyone, have not gone anywhere. Many housewives, choosing textiles for their apartment, remain faithful to natural and environmentally friendly fabrics.



Fashion trends in the design of windows

The times when curtains were used only as a utilitarian thing remained in the distant past. Now they are not being bought just to hide from the rays of the sun penetrating the apartment, or to be closed from passers-by looking into the windows of the first floor. These functions, of course, are important, but they are not enough.



Aesthetic functions are also expected from curtains: the window should look beautiful and holistic, harmoniously fit into the created interior.


The current fashion does not impose strict requirements for style decisions, however, the following trends are clearly traced in the trends of 2016:

  • lightness and lightness;
  • rule: "textured fabric - simple design";
  • emphasized individuality and originality;
  • following the theme of the interior;
  • minimalism;
  • technostyle;
  • ethnic style;
  • theatrical style;
  • palace style.

It's good that designers do not impose anything. From the style solutions they proposed, everyone can choose his own.

The most easily fulfilled, we can consider the requirements for following the theme of the interior. Most of us do just that.

If, for example, light rattan furniture was installed in your living room, then you are unlikely to hang French curtains there. Most likely, these will be simple natural fabrics or fabrics with a certain ethnic pattern. Curtains with “animal” pattern or with the image of nature will fit into the apartment, stylized as a safari park.


As for the other listed fashion trends, it is advisable to figure out how the rooms designed in these styles should look. Here museum displays and photos of successful finished interiors will come to the rescue.

Lightness and lightness

The name itself suggests that transparent light tissues are selected for this direction. They transmit light well, have a delicate texture and gather in spectacular folds. A peculiarity of the air style is its numerous assemblies and rich draperies on thin, almost weightless fabrics.

For these purposes, an almost weightless veil is good. She behaves beautifully with any curtains, but in this context is an independent window decor. On large-format window openings, as well as on bay windows, multilayer curtains from two or three transparent fabrics of different colors look stylish and elegant.


Depending on the general interior of the living room, these can be shades of one color that seamlessly fade into one another (milk, beige, coffee), or combinations built on contrast (boiling white and dark blue). The same effect can be achieved with a combination of "taffeta - organza", "silk-chiffon", etc.

Decorators suggest changing the order of hanging curtains: instead of the usual “down tulle, on top of the curtains”, the opposite option becomes fashionable.Transparent thin canvases become an element of decoration for a denser fabric, which acts as the basis, background for a light curtain.

Textured fabric - simple design

In this case, the main rule is not to overdo it with the decor. The richer, more textured the fabric itself, the brighter and more expressive its design, the simpler the curtain should be.

Overloaded assemblies, the use of complex decorating techniques can "kill" the fabric, and the overall impression of such a curtain will be negative.


Tip: If the fabric of future curtains has a colorful, interesting pattern, choose a style so that it allows you to see the image.

Emphasized individuality and originality

This trend in curtain fashion is not new, but in 2016 it will retain its position. The bottom line is to find unusual use for ordinary material, and vice versa. Example: everyone hangs curtains from fabric in the living room - you decorate the window with thin leather, and instead of the usual hooks, you use leather straps.

If everyone is accustomed to using striped fabric in the vertical direction, then you will sew curtains with a pattern on the diagonal, or design them in the style of "patchwork", where the stripes will run both lengthwise and across, and obliquely.


In most homes, curtains are up to the floor. You can decorate the window at half its height. By tradition, this is how the windows are designed in the kitchen or in the dining room. By the way, in the coming year this technique will be fashionable: a transparent curtain barely reaches the window sill, and the main fabric, as usual, is sewn to the floor.

It is easiest to show originality to those who prefer eclecticism in decor. But, in fact, each interior is individual (unless, of course, it is copied entirely from someone’s living room).

Following the theme of the interior

Consider the example of a fashionable marine style now. Let's say your idea is this: a drawing room is a deck of a sea ship. In the interior you used wood, jute, ropes, as a decor you chose ship models, sea shells, helms, anchors and other things reminiscent of the sea.


Obviously, the curtains in such a living room require special ones. For purity of style, you can even use sailing fabric, but linen or linen unpainted curtains with a large mesh thrown over the cornice are also quite suitable. For the most daring, we can recommend curtains - scarlet sails.

The ruffles, lace and frills do not fit into the marine theme, but they will be wonderful in interiors such as "at the grandmother's village", "romantic girl's little lamp", "living room a la USSR" and "French Provence".


Strict clear forms are preferred. The design of curtains is not full of decor; color gamut, mainly black and white. Black, gray and white are the favorite colors for this style. They are used both individually and in contrasting combinations. In a monochrome design, a monophonic bright spot is allowed, for example, a red curtain, but in this case it must be supported by another decor item of the same color; sofa cushions, murals or a single tall vase.


Sometimes the curtains above and below are attached to the guides. They open and close according to the principle of sliding panels.

The style of "minimalism" is characteristic of Japanese culture. It has traditionally decorated offices and Japanese houses. See photos with examples of their interiors.

Ethnic style

Willingly used recently style. Many people liked Ethno, therefore it remains relevant in the next year.



Designers recommend boldly use wallpaper, carpets, bedspreads with prints under the skin of animals and reptiles, but categorically exclude natural skins, skin and stuffed animals.

As for the curtains, the drawings will be suitable for this topic: “zebra”, “leopard”, “cow skin”. The texture of the fabric imitates the skin of a buffalo, lamb, and the coat of various animals. The combination of smooth and fleecy fabrics in the design of the windows is another innovation proposed in 2016.


Living room in ethnic style looks especially attractive if it is decorated in the spirit of a particular country or nationality. The fabric for the curtains is selected in such a way that it resembles a traditional pattern or ornament of the selected culture, for example: Mexican, Peruvian or Scandinavian.

Theater style



Remember what the curtain looks like on the stage of any theater - most often, it is velvet, velor or heavy cloth. The main curtains in your living room can also be like this.

High arched windows in the lobby and lobby of the theater, as a rule, are decorated with "French" or "Austrian" curtains. The former are collected in several rows along the entire length; in the latter, only the lower part is similarly collected. And they both look elegant, solemn and festive.


Theaters only use snow-white fabrics, but you can experiment in your living room. If pale blue color is more suitable for your interior, feel free to use it: the blue color will refresh the top layer of curtains.

Decorators suggest combining heavy velvet with a light veil or translucent taffeta. This solution is only suitable for large living rooms with expensive and richly decorated furniture. Designing living rooms in the style of a la theater, their owners often build podiums (scenes) and enclose them in framing from curtain fabric, securing it in a semicircle on a curly ledge. Thus, even greater similarity with a real theater is achieved.

Palace style

Heavy, massive curtains richly decorated with expensive fringe or large tassels on a twisted cord fit in the palace-style living room. As a "tamper" are ideal "French" curtains. Pellets of complex shapes, decorated with monograms, various emblems, etc. are also a hallmark of palace curtains.


The texture of the fabrics - heavy satin, tapestry, jacquard - is only printed; with an abundance of decor, embroidery, trimmed with precious stones (or their imitation). The color scheme is traditional: dark red wine, dark blue, dark green, chocolate. An indispensable condition is the abundance of gold motifs both on the fabric and throughout the interior. How such curtains look in historical interiors can be seen in the paintings of old masters or in the photo of modern royal palaces.

Tip: Fabrics used for theater and palace style should not be washed. Their care is complicated, and it is better to entrust it with professional cleaning.

To give recommendations regarding the choice of curtains, without seeing the living in your living room, is a thankless task. For each specific case, there is an ideal option. From the vast sea of ​​textures, colors and drawings, choose only what you like and what will best decorate your living room.
