Gone are the days when the floor covering was reduced to small pieces of carpets scattered here and there, as it is noticed that the carpets are now bigger in terms of size, and colored in bold colors (rich browns, greens, oranges, shades of yellow, warm terracotta, elegant coral or purple…), in line with current fashion. There are also rugs that are characterized by their neutral colors to keep the decor cohesive. Add to the usual carpets, there are those striped or checkerboard (similar to a chessboard) or its patterns inspired by popular organic forms …

The curtains, in turn, after being white for a long time, will be colored in beige in 2023 and woven from cotton, linen or silk, so that velvet will retreat. When it comes to the design of curtains, the transparent and the opaque will still meet the needs, no matter how different they are. The preferred taste is for plain or printed fabrics with natural leaves, flowers or abstract patterns, with some designers tending to make many layers of curtains of different thicknesses, as well as fusing plain fabrics with each other, or with those with engravings.

Whatever the style of curtains or carpets in 2023, the lesson is in the conclusions, that is, in matching the curtains and choosing carpets for each room of the house, in a way that matches the others components of furniture and design work.

  • Determine the correct size for each piece, in relation to the size of the room and the nature of the furniture.
  • Examine the carpet material, accurately, with a preference for quality, and pay attention to the function of each room; For example, the living room needs a “durable” carpet that can withstand a lot of scrubbing, while the hall is covered with beautiful and luxurious carpets that match the color of the furniture, and the bedroom is covered with small pieces of calm colors.
  • Choose neutral colors, whether for carpets (or curtains), without leaning towards elements that make the decorations in the room unimaginable.
