Have you ever wandered the curtain aisle of your local department store wondering which curtains would go best with your room? I can’t tell you how long I used to stand in that aisle looking at the same fabrics over and over again. If you’re looking for something new and improved, check out these curtain ideas to avoid staring at a row of plain ol’ curtains and valances. You’d be surprised at how new curtains can make it seem like you gave your room a makeover!
Master Bedroom Curtain Ideas
#1. Seafoam Green & Cream
This room has a few colors that would be hard to complement without sticking to plain white. The room itself is white with seafoam green walls. What they did here was match it with some long cream colored panels and accented it with seafoam green sheer half curtains. They don’t completely block out the sunlight, but the sheer ones dim it a little when needed. It’s a good idea for those who want to keep their room bright and vibrant.
#2. Neutral Colors
I love the colors of this bedroom. It has a neutral color pattern with a lot of grey, white and tan. It wouldn’t be hard to find some curtains that match the room, but they went all out and hung curtains with grey and pink in them. Rather than having one big set of panels, they covered each window and “connected” the rods to make it look like it’s one long rod of curtains. This makes it easy to keep one window covered and one uncovered if desired.
These curtains are rather busy. Curtains like these are great for breaking up the blandness of single color rooms. This room has a lot of tan and beige, so the coloring of the curtains, valances and comforter really bring some boldness to the room. This is rather unique and probably not very easy to find unless they’re custom made.
#4. Lots Of Gold
I feel like this room would be something that you’d see in the 1970’s. It’s definitely vintage and elegant. They decided to stick with the main color theme of the room and go with gold wide panel curtains with the squared, flat valances to cover the rods. These panels are great for blocking out sunlight, but I don’t recommend it if you want natural sunlight to brighten your room.
Small Bedroom Curtain Ideas
Who says you have to use curtains on windows? In this room, the large white panels are used as a divider from one part of the bedroom to the other. It blocks off the bed and gives you the privacy you need. If you don’t use it for privacy, you can use it as just an accent piece. It’s a cheap way to block off the bed, rather than building another wall or door.
Once again we see that the curtains are used without windows. These tan panels are used as wall accents to give the room a little bit of a pop. Not only that, but they used the panels as ceiling decor. Sure, it’s going to cost a little extra for all of those panels on the ceiling, but it gives the room an amazing royal feel.
Bedroom Curtain Ideas With Blinds
I love this window treatment idea mainly because of how unusual it is. A lot of people will match the height on both sections, but this person didn’t because of the height of the panels. Also notice how their shade is also on that tiny window next to the bed. How cute is that?! This type of window coverage is great for those who want to choose how much sunlight is let in. You can close both, or leave one open and the other closed.
#8. White Over Tan
These curtains are very elegant in my opinion. Often people will only use the sheer white curtains in fear of overdoing it on their windows. In this case, the blinds are optional. If the sheer panels aren’t enough to block out the lights, you can either draw the blinds or use it with the panels.
Baby Room Curtain Ideas
#9. Elegant Panels
Whoever’s baby this room belongs to is very lucky. All of the furnishings in here are both vintage and classy, including the curtains. The curtains, in combination with the blinds, are perfect for blocking out that pesky sunlight when the baby is trying to sleep. When the blinds are up, it lets in just enough light to brighten up the room.
#10. Pink & White
The obvious theme here is pink and white. However, the grey walls gives it a little something extra and breaks up the brightness. The curtains are a beautiful pink and white striped decorative pattern with the soft dip valance. The blinds underneath are traditional and keep the bright sun out of the baby girl’s eyes.
This children’s room is a quirky one. It features bright colors, shapes and funky furnishings. The curtains are a beautiful light grey with triangles on them. I like this idea because it gives the baby something to focus on while they’re laying in their crib. It’s not too bright on the eyes, it does well for blocking the sunlight during sleep time and they can be tied in different ways.
Mens Bedroom Curtain Ideas
These curtains are for those that want their room to be completely dark, even when it’s sunny outside. The room itself is quite dark, but the thick dark blue/grey panels make it even more so. They complement the overall aesthetic of the room, matching the color scheme.
#13. Black & White Striped
Most men like to have manly colors in their rooms. In this case, this man has fur in his along with dark and light colors. They have the black and white rug and the black and white pillows. They were somehow able to find curtain panels that go well with the colors of the room. These panels look thick enough to keep out the light, just enough to make it semi-dark.
White Bedroom Curtain Ideas
#14. Sheer White
These curtain panels make the room so much brighter. When you have bright sunlight coming in and it hits those panels, it brightens everything up. These are combined with a beautiful curved valance for a little more decor. Sheer panels are extremely easy to find and really don’t cost much. If you’re looking for something elegant yet practical, this is what you want.
#15. White & Gold
The color scheme of this bedroom is obviously white and gold. They use mostly white with the gold trim. Including the window treatments. There are gold curtain rods, matching the decor of the rest of the room. On the rods, there are white sheer curtain panels. These seem like they’re strictly for decor, but they also give just a small sense of privacy. Again, white curtain panels are usually affordable and are always a safe bet.

If you have a room that’s grey and you can’t seem to find any curtains to go with the colors, go with these metallic grey ones. These are long panels paired with designed blinds to add extra privacy. These would be optimal for those who like to have their windows open, but want to keep their bedroom activities private. Just close the curtains and let the breeze in.

#17. Simply Grey
This bedroom is composed of black, tan, grey and white. You could really pick any color you wanted to for the windows that match the flow of the bedroom, but here, they went with a light grey. They have shutter style blinds build inside of the windows which add the cutest look to the room. When they want their windows open to allow light to reflect off of the light walls, they can just open those curtains right up.
Blue Bedroom Curtain Ideas
#18. Very Teal
I love the colors in this bedroom. It’s not too blue and not too white, there’s just the right amount of both. Sometimes, too much of one color can be very overpowering, but that’s not the case here. They had curtains made to match the pattern on the pillows, which is pretty awesome in my opinion. If you have the money to do it, I suggest having some custom panels made to match a pattern that you like inside of your room.
#19. Navy Blue Patterns
Dark colored walls usually mean that the bedroom won’t reflect a lot of natural sunlight. In this case, they made sure they added a lot of white colors to it, including in the curtains. These blue patterned curtains are paired with blue and white striped blinds. If you’re one who likes to incorporate different patterns into one area, this may be a style that would work well for you.
#20. Blue & Sheer White
The one difference between this room and a lot of the other ones is that beautiful hardwood flooring mixed with those grey/blue curtains. These curtains look as if they are mounted to the ceiling, which is a good idea if you want to block off a hallway or closet in your room without drilling into your trim. In this case, there are the beautiful panels with the sheer ones added for extra pizzazz.
Green Bedroom Curtain Ideas
#21. Unique Coloring
I can’t say I’m in love with the colors chosen here, but the green definitely catches the eye. Here, they have a beautiful cascade-type valance with heavy panels. They go beautifully with the color of the bed skirting and headboard. There are quite a few different patterns here, but somehow they work well with each other.
#22. Simply Green
I am so in love with the green-ness in this room. My favorite color is green, which makes it more appealing to me. The curtain panels that they use look very heavy, but they’re very traditional. I really like how the curtain rod is hidden by the drop down in front of the door. My only thing is, who would want to block a view like that?!
Purple Bedroom Curtain Ideas
If you like silk, this design is for you. This is a beautiful violet and white colored room. The purple breaks up the massive amount of white around the room. The curtains are very loosely tied up at the top to create a unique droopy look. Under them is a white sheer panel to block out some of the sunlight and add privacy.
#24. Extremely Purple Patterned
There’s so much purple in this bedroom, it actually makes my eyes hurt. If your daughter or niece loves the color purple, this is one way to really brighten up their room. I love how they used curtains and paneling behind the bed. It gives it a little something extra to look at. I also really enjoy the way they used the zig zag pattern on top of a solid purple blind as an accent feature.
#25. White & Purple
This room has a lot of elegance to it. The mattress is set upon a traditional sleigh bed, but surrounding that beautiful wood color is so much purple. They did a good job of not overdoing the window treatments. They used a patterned white and purple design, which pairs beautifully with the rest of the room, especially those hanging glass lights.
Well, there you have it! Some of the most unique and colorful bedroom curtain ideas. For every color room and style, there’s always a type of curtain to go with it.
