When it comes to decorating your living room, finding the right sofa, paint color or statement rug might be top of mind, but there’s another element that can make a huge difference in your space — window treatments. There’s a wide range of living room curtain ideas, whether you’re aiming to achieve a modern look, a farmhouse vibe or wanting to make a small space appear larger.
You can hang curtains that pool on the floor for a formal setup or go for a floor-length option if you prefer a more practical, low-maintenance style. What’s more, you can choose from sheer panels to allow natural light to pour into your space, or, on the other hand, hang blackout shades for more privacy (and a good night’s rest). There’s also a slew of curtain types to consider, depending on your design style. For instance, grommet panels feature openings at the top to insert simple metal rings for hanging, while pinch pleat styles have vertical folds for a more dramatic look.
If you’re stumped on picking the best design for your space, this assortment of living room curtain ideas is full of inspiration. Click through for our favorites, and while you’re at it, check out our roundup of the best places to buy curtains online.
