Curtains have really made a big come back in Australian homes in the past decade…. modern curtains are stylish and practical and there are many curtain fabrics to choose from to suit the latest interior design trends.

Neutrals and grey tones are still very popular choices when it comes to 2021 curtain trends…. we’re also seeing the use of warm earthy tones this season to complement soft furnishings and homewares.

Read on to find out more about the 2021 Curtain Trends that are popular here in Australia…..

Sheer Curtains

Sheer curtains are still extremely popular for those who are looking to add a luxurious look to their home.  Sheers provide a veil of privacy throughout the day and you can include a blockout layer that can be pulled across in the evenings to create privacy.

Lightweight sheer fabrics come in a range of tones and textures, making it easy to find something to suit your home. For those of us who love to surround themselves with natural products, our linen sheers offer a gorgeous look that won’t date.

Neutrals & Earthy Tones

If you’re looking for a curtain option that will last the distance as far as trends go, neutral tones are most definitely the way to go. Warm greys, off whites, stone and beige tones are always popular choices for new homes, but this year the industry is seeing the trend move toward the use of warmer earthy tones like rust, tan and terracotta. Blush pinks seem to be a thing of the past and we are now seeing soft plum hues and dusty blues being introduced into interiors.


Natural Curtain Fabrics

There’s something special about the texture of natural products, so if you prefer natural cotton fabrics, you will be impressed by the number of linen curtain fabrics available. Linen sheers are one of the most popular window furnishing choices for new homes and luxury residences in Australia in 2021 and with very good reason.

As with most natural products, linen curtain fabrics tend to be more expensive than other fabrics. For those on a limited budget, the good news is, that there are several curtain fabrics available that offer a similar look to linen.

Newcastle Curtains and Blinds has an experienced interior designer to assist clients with in-home curtains and blinds selections.

Patterns & Prints

To add some character to your home, consider a fabric with a bold pattern or a gorgeous floral print for something a little different. You can really have some fun with curtain fabrics if you want to add colour and personality to a room….think texture, bold prints, colour, fun prints.

Introducing fabrics with different textures or patterns, will allow you to create interesting layers in a room.  For those who prefer a contemporary look, stripes and simple repeat patterns, in beige or blues, will look right at home in Hamptons and coastal style interiors.
