Curtains are not outdated. They are keeping up with the trends and can my used in modern as well as traditional interior design. Curtains are classic decorative and functional window treatments. They are multifunctional, versatile, affordable, and efficient to use for our windows.
Among the main curtain trends for 2021 is an ambiance that's airy or light. Heavy and thick curtains can make a room look and feel much smaller.

Among today's most popular window treatments, matchstick shades offer stylish texture and add natural warmth to your window design. They're easy to operate, look great when paired with drapes and come in a variety of weaves depending on the amount of light control you need.
