The recent trend in contemporary apartments features glazed areas going from ceiling to floor and wall to wall or sometimes meeting at right angle bays creating privacy issues during the day and challenges for light exclusion at night.
Curtain design ideas for floor to ceiling windows are much in demand due to contemporary trends. At Pret À Vivre, we have lots of design ideas and solutions for dressing floor to ceiling windows and other contemporary large glazed areas.
Floor to ceiling curtains have always been very popular yet there is a view of that they are more modern and part of a “new look”. Floor to ceiling curtains are one of the most common features in a “contemporary apartment”. Whether it’s located in the city or in the countryside, the perfect modern apartment features a perfect view. Large glazed areas or sliding doors are common in living rooms and bedrooms to make the most of the view, however they can become big black walls at night. Floor length curtains running wall to wall can offer privacy in the evening, particularly if the flat is in a city location or on a site which is overlooked.
If the floor to ceiling windows or glazed doors are in an east-facing bedroom, or another place where there is too much light coming in, ceiling fit tracks or poles will help the curtains to exclude light making the space darker and protecting your sleep.
Whatever the location you are in, having long drapes coming from the ceiling will visually extend the ceiling height creating a larger more dynamic space., which gives the open look that a modern apartment has.
