  • It's hard to have privacy and lots of light at the same time.

  • The factory look can be hard to decorate.

Curtain Choices for Container Homes

Curtain Styles Well-Suited for Container Homes

Don't worry! Many window treatments work great in your container home:

Blackout Curtains

Perfect for bedrooms. They block out all light so you can sleep soundly.

We recommend our thermal blackout curtains, which are made with a special lining that helps regulate temperature too.

Thermal Curtains

These help keep your home cool in summer and warm in winter.

Our thermal curtains come in a variety of colors and patterns to match your style. They're a must-have for energy efficiency.

Sheer Curtains

They let light in but still give privacy. Great for making a small space feel bigger and brighter. Try our lightweight linen sheers for an airy look.

Sliding Panels

Ideal for dividing up open living rooms in your container house. Our sliding panels come in cool patterns and textures to add some personality to your space.

Grommet Curtains

The metal rings match the industrial design of your container. We love how grommets make it easy to open and close your curtains too.

Tip: You may need special rods or tracks to hang curtains on the metal walls. Our experts can help you find the perfect setup for your windows.

Curtain Fabrics

Fun Curtain Ideas

Here are some fun curtain ideas to try in your container home:

  • Use sliding barn doors with curtain panels instead of normal doors. It's a great way to save space and add some rustic charm.

  • Hang fabric on the walls or ceiling to soften the industrial look. We love using tapestries or hanging curtains to create a cozy feel.

  • Make room dividers with curtains for privacy. Our extra-wide curtains are perfect for sectioning off spaces.

  • Layer sheer and blackout curtains so you can control the light. This lets you switch between privacy and brightness throughout the day.

  • Use patterned or colorful curtains to add personality to your space. Don't be afraid to mix and match prints for a fun, eclectic vibe.

Curtain Wall Systems

For a modern look, consider a glass curtain wall system. These are exterior walls made entirely of glass. They let in tons of natural light and provide stunning views.

You can find prefab curtain wall systems that are easy to install on your container home. Look for double or triple pane glass for the best insulation.

Some systems even have built-in blinds or shades for added light control.
