The latest styles in curtains make achieving the hotel-luxe style in your own home simple…

Who hasn’t woken up in a hotel bedroom wishing they could take some of the furniture home with them? Whether it’s the plump cushions, the oh-so-soft 400-thread Egyptian cotton sheets or a beautiful chair, many of the best boutique and style hotels trigger our inner interior designer. Of course, we can’t fill our suitcases with cosy bathrobes and cool curtains – as much as we might want to – but we can achieve a similar look at home. 

Home is where the hotel is

There’s a reason the best hotels feel stylish – and that’s because everything has been carefully considered. So while you might get your home sofa or bed just right, it can still feel like something is missing in the search for the on-trend hotel-luxe look.

That’s because the devil is in the details. Look away from the big-ticket items and you can achieve the desired effect with curtains and home furnishings. Opt for made to measure curtains that fill the space optimally for a sleek finish.

Why go for waves?

Blinds Direct stock modern wave heading curtains that work to manipulate the fabric evenly – gaps and curves are uniform to achieve the perfect drape. When paired with a surge track, which incorporates a glider cord restricting the extension of the fabric, the wave effect is achieved with a wonderful undulation.

The tracks have a small profile too, so won’t draw attention or detract from your curtains – choose a silver surge track for a splash of extra glamour. The end result is a polished look similar to one you might have admired in your favourite bolthole.

Shop the look

Happily, Blinds Direct offer a free interior design service that can make hotel styling simple.

You’ll have peace of mind because, despite prices up to 70% off what they cost on the high street, all its curtains and blinds are handmade in the UK.
