Get the look with wave curtains
Choose wave curtains if you love contemporary styling and soft, unstructured folds. In this article we show you some fabulous ways to style wave curtains in your home, highlighting the specific features of this header type along the way.
Contemporary homes embrace open-plan living, allowing the whole family to come together in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. Wave curtains are an ideal design choice for these social spaces. The loosely rippling folds echo the laid-back feel that is essential for creating a welcoming, communal environment. We’ve chosen Mosaic Turquoise wave curtains for this family dining room. The geometric pattern and lively colourway create a sense of easy style that you’ll love to live with every day.
Wave curtains are a great choice if you are stuck for space around and above your windows. Because the fabric is not tightly gathered, it folds up very neatly when the curtain is fully open, allowing you to really make the most of the views from your window. And because wave curtains are fitted onto a discreet, slim track you can also fix them to the ceiling if you wish, giving you a contemporary floor-to-ceiling look which accentuates the height of your room.
If you love bold colours and patterns, wave curtains are great for showing them off to their best advantage. The loose folds allow for more of the pattern to be seen, which means you can make a design statement with your gorgeous print curtains. In this futuristic dining room, the subtle geometric pattern on these stunning Shibori Smoke grey curtains complements the style of the stand-out origami pendant lights, creating real interest at the window.
