How to Choose Beige and White Floor-to-Ceiling Curtains from 14 Types in Dubai

Curtains and window treatments in general are an often-overlooked yet vital component of any decor. Aside from their functional role of blocking out light, they serve as the final finishing layer that brings a place together—they are an excellent way to add a pop of color and design. Curtains are available in a variety of styles, lengths, and fabrics, and some are more suited to one room for your home in Dubai than another. Use our comprehensive advice below to select the best curtains for your home.

01. Blackout Curtains

Blackout curtains in Dubai  totally block out light and provide perfect darkness, promoting a restful night’s sleep. They have a tightly woven lining that does not allow any light to pass through. In addition to managing light, blackout curtains help regulate temperature by keeping drafts out in the winter and hot air out in the summer. Deconovo’s set serves as an excellent example.

02. Curtains with tiebacks

Curtain tiebacks are both ornamental and utilitarian additions to window panels. They usually come with the curtains and are made of the same material—you may also see them fashioned of woven cords and decorated with tassels, or from a complementary fabric or pattern. Two loops on either end, attached to a wall hook, hold them in place.

03. Pleated Panel Curtains

Pleated panel curtains are a great way to give your windows an attractive and slightly sophisticated appeal. We construct the pleats by bunching several fabric folds together to create fullness, then gently hang them in a uniform pattern for a timeless and refined appearance.

04. Single-panel curtains

A smaller window may require only one curtain panel rather than two. Usually, it consists of a single continuous piece of cloth, but for larger windows or sliding doors, you can opt for two panels on either side.

05. Double-panel curtains

Double curtain panels, as their name suggests, consist of two individual panels, one on each side of the window. When purchasing window treatments, carefully read the product description to see whether it includes one or two panels.

06. Pinch Pleat Curtains

If you want curtains with a little extra detail, pinch-pleat curtains will make your windows look more attractive. Three tight fabric folds form a traditional pinch pleat, creating a fan-like feature at the top of the curtain panel that gradually fanns out towards the ground.

07. Grommet Curtains

Grommet curtains move easily along the rod, making them quick to open and close. The panels have round metal rings incorporated into the top, which eliminates the need for curtain rings because the rod glides directly through the holes punched in the cloth. These curtains provide a clean, modern, and uncluttered appearance that is ideal for streamlined, contemporary, and transitional settings.

08. Café Curtains

Cafe curtains, in contrast to other types of curtains, simply cover the bottom portion of the window, allowing light to enter through the top while maintaining seclusion. Kitchens and bathrooms typically use them due to their ease of installation, which only requires a small tension rod instead of a permanent one.

09. Tab-Top Curtains

Tab-top curtains feature loops at the top made of the same fabric as the panel and hang directly from a curtain rod. They, like grommet and rod pocket curtains, do not require curtain rings, and instead of sewn-on loops, they may have sewn-on ties that add an additional ornamental aspect.

10. Floor-Length Curtains

Floor-length curtains help to visually expand the ceiling height and make a space feel larger. People sometimes hang curtains too low, making the ceiling appear low and heavy; therefore, the common rule of thumb is to hang them two-thirds of the distance between the window and the ceiling, or closer to the ceiling.

11. Apron-Length Curtains

Apron-length curtains hang just beneath the window sill. They are not as popular as they once were, but they are an excellent alternative for rooms with furniture or a heater directly beneath the window.

12. Puddle-length curtains

Puddling refers to the length of the curtain panel; rather than simply touching the ground or having a one-inch break, puddle-length drapes literally “puddle” on the ground, creating a dramatic yet soft look. The only disadvantage of these curtains is that they tend to collect a lot of dust, necessitating more frequent washing.

13. Light-filtering curtains

Light-filtering curtains are not fully transparent like sheer curtains, but they allow in far more light than room-darkening or blackout curtains. They provide a little seclusion and block direct sunlight while still allowing plenty of light in. They are made of thinner, loosely woven, lightweight textiles, typically cotton or polyester.

14. Window scarf curtains

Window scarf curtains are most common in traditional-style rooms, with fabrics that coordinate with or complement the room’s furnishings. Two curtain panels and a beautiful valance on top, which drapes over the panels like a scarf, typically make up these curtains.

Choosing Curtains

To select the appropriate curtains for your home, go through a checklist of questions to reduce your options. Firstly, assess the room where you plan to hang them; a bedroom’s curtains will differ significantly from those needed for a kitchen window. Velvet curtains, for example, can transform even tiny bedrooms into stylish spaces. Then, consider how much light you want them to let in—whether you’ll be sleeping in the room and need to block out all light, like blackout curtains, or whether you’d like them to softly disperse sunlight, like light-filtering curtains. Keep your home’s decor in mind to help them blend in, take accurate dimensions, and use this hanging guide to hang curtains like a pro.
