Types of Curtains Used in Interior Design

Explore the types of curtains used in interior design, including sheer, blackout, valances, and drapes. Find the perfect window treatments for any decor style.

Pinch Pleat Curtains

If you’re going for a traditional style, pleated curtains are your best bet. These curtains are typically made with thicker, heavier fabrics. Pinch pleat (or tailored pleat) curtains are the most popular kind of pleated curtains. The pleats are stitched and pinched at the top, allowing the folds of the fabric to flow below and create an elegant, formal look.

Goblet Pleat curtains get their name from their resemblance to a goblet or wine glass. However, due to the delicate structure of the pleats, this curtain style should remain stationary and can only be used to frame and decorate the window. Therefore, they’re not a good option for curtains that get a lot of use.

Pencil Pleat Curtains

Pencil pleat curtains have thinner, single pleats that make working with various curtain hooks or rods easier. Pencil pleat curtains are more casual than goblet or box pleat curtains. They’re perfect for bedrooms or living rooms that don’t require as much formality.

Rod Pocket Curtains

Rod pocket (also called pole pocket) curtains are typically made of lightweight or sheer fabrics. As a result, they are a lot more casual in style. These curtains are also easy to assemble: Slip the curtain rod through the “pocket” in the fabric, and you’re good to go. Rod pocket panels are best with thinner, tighter-fit curtain rods, so they’re ideal for rooms where curtains aren’t opened and closed frequently.

Tab Top Curtains

Like rod pocket curtains, tab-top curtains are more casual in style. Tab top curtains have prominent loops that hang from the top seam of the panels and are easy to thread through a curtain rod. Tab-top curtains are an attractive accent in a farmhouse or cottage home décor.

Window Sill Curtains

Window sill curtains are short curtains that hover slightly above the edge of the window sill. Window sill curtains are ideal for smaller windows or above furniture that would block longer drapes. Window sill curtains are a popular choice for small windows that are often opened, like kitchens and bathrooms.

Cafe Curtains

are short curtains often accompanied by a matching valance. Cafe curtains add personality to your space and are ideal for letting light in while providing a bit of privacy. Cafe curtains are traditionally used in kitchens but can also be used in breakfast nooks, sunrooms or bedrooms if light filtering and privacy are not concerns.

Apron Curtains

Apron curtains (also known as half-length curtains) are perfect if you need shorter curtains for your living areas or bedrooms or living rooms. They may also be a better choice for homes with pets or small children. Apron curtains are ideal in kitchens, bedrooms or rooms with space air conditioners or radiators under the window.
