Options, Styles and Patterns
Curtains and other window treatments are the perfect solution to refresh a room. They effectively control the light, maintain privacy, while creating style in your living space. But draperies are not only manufactured for windows. You can use curtains for privacy or as shower curtains, but you’ll also find curtains options for your outdoor pergola. At Meco Shades, we provide a wide variety of fabrics, colors and patterns to suit every style.
Curtains not only make a room feel finished, but they also transform any space. Moreover, curtains and draperies have the ability to create the illusion of a higher ceiling, or frame views to a beautiful panorama outside. Our ultimate window dressing solutions encompass a wide array of curtains, patterns, and styles you can choose from for your home.
Styles of Curtains
When it comes to buying the proper types of curtains for your home, there are many details to consider. If you are looking for modern curtains, plain ripplefold curtains are the ideal choice. If you are looking for something purely decorative, you can choose classical draperies with damask or floral patterns, or you may add a decorative valance to the top of your existing curtains.
Your modern curtains can be enhanced with textured roman shades for a rustic, layered look. When selecting an abundance of bold prints for a classical look, you can balance scales and patterns, where you can simply pair a floral sofa with subtle geometric curtains.
Types of Curtains
Draperies and curtains range from decorative to functional and everything in between. Types include: Pinch pleat curtains, eyelet curtains, blackout curtains, pencil pleat curtains and ripplefold curtains to name a few.
- Pinch Pleat Curtains
If you prefer a traditional style, pinch pleat curtains are the ideal choice. They feature heavier fabrics and tailored pleats that are pinched at the top. The drapery folds flow below to generate a formal yet elegant appearance. Pencil pleat curtains are ideal for living spaces that require less formality, as they are designed with single thinner pleats.
- Eyelet Curtains
Also called grommet curtains, eyelet curtains are best when it comes to contemporary interior design. They feature grommets that hold the drapery panels, allowing you to easily operate your curtains.
- Ripplefold Curtains
Ripplefold curtains are popular among interior designers and architects. Designers admire this style of curtains because of their consistent s- curve rippling across the track. Ripplefold panels glide smoothly along the custom tracks, creating that consistent wave.
- Sheer Curtains
Sheer curtains are semi-transparent curtains that offer the most daylight in a room. However, due to their transparency, they are not able to ensure the required privacy. Interior designers usually add sheer curtains to decorative drapes to create a sophisticated window dressing, especially in living rooms.
- Blackout Drapes
Installing blackout curtains helps you efficiently control light. They are made with heavyweight fabrics and polyester lining that block light and maintain privacy.
Patterns and designs
Besides enhancing your home decor, curtains provide privacy and shade. They are available in a variety of patterns, colors, and fabrics. Some curtains are used to block out light, while others are designed to dress your windows with opulence. Having said that, there are some patterned fabrics to make timeless curtains.

- Plain Curtains
Plain curtains are popular among designers and homeowners because of their affordable price and their variety of textures and colours. Plain curtains are particularly suitable for interiors with patterned wallpapers or multi-colored furniture. Moreover, it is better to go with light-coloured curtains to brighten up your room and make it feel more spacious.
- Geometric Curtains
There are plenty of patterns to choose from when it comes to geometric curtains. This versatile pattern goes well with various interior designs. For example, circle or diamond patterns help you create a retro style in your room, while stripes are more suitable for a contemporary style.
- Floral Curtains
Floral curtains can make a room more radiant and welcoming. There are plenty of floral patterns that are suitable for many interiors with a floral theme, especially if you select the right color scheme. If you prefer understated curtains with a vintage style, small floral patterns are the ideal choice, while large floral patterns are more suitable for spacious rooms. For a cottage-style decor, you can choose realistic floral curtains along with a mix of fabrics for slipcovers and upholstery.
Damask curtains are manufactured with jacquard fabric featuring intricate designs woven into them. This pattern is suitable for classical interior designs, but you can choose muted colors for a minimalistic look. Jacquard damask curtains are the ideal option to add a luxurious yet striking appearance to your house.
Although there are various options and patterns for curtains, every type of pattern or style carries with it a specific taste and preference for different people. At Meco Shades, we help you choose the fabric and pattern that reflect your individual taste.
