Types of Curtains

If windows are the eyes of the home this makes curtains the eyebrows. This makes them arguably even more important, since, like on the face, they frame and shape a room. Like great eyebrows, they come in many shapes and forms.

Let’s be clear about what curtains are.

Unlike drapes (their close window furnishing cousin), curtains usually feature thinner fabrics—though they can still be lined to block out light and preserve warmth—they hang from a curtain rod or track installed above the window or space and extend to the floor. This can be over blinds or shutters if the purpose is to blackout the room and provide privacy.

Curtains for The Bedroom

Bedroom curtains are the perfect way to create a private haven. A curtain with the right lining, length, fabric, and colour can add a sense of comfort or sophistication to any bedroom. Before anything else, especially with bedroom curtains, make sure your choice of curtain does not compromise your privacy. Quality curtains will keep your room airy and bright while still managing to offer privacy.
