Cafe curtains add a perfect blance of privacy yet is still able to draw light in moderation
Once upon a time, old roadside cafes had special curtains that were used to cover the windows. What made these curtains special is the fact that they were hung partway up their windows. Most people who are not in the design and decor industry might not know what these curtains are. Fortunately, these unique curtains are making a comeback. Cafe curtains can either be hung near the top or close to the bottom of the window. In most cases, the curtain’s hanging position is determined by a dividing line in the window or adjacent walls.
Cafe curtains have become some of the most preferred curtain styles for cafes or kitchens, owing to their ability to add unique features. Regardless of how modern your cafe or kitchen is, you will need something to break the monotony and bring along a stylish part that gives your space a homely feel.
Cafe curtains come in different fabrics. They can be light or heavy depending on your needs. The curtains can be lined or unlined. Some may come with pleats or drapery heading for different looks. The material used will greatly rely on where the curtain will be used. Most of these curtains will cover between a third and a half of your window. The other part is left uncovered to allow light in.
As much as you want light to enter the premise because of its activities, you also want to balance it with some privacy. Depending on the image you hope to create, you could either:
- cover the upper part of the window, which would cut down the amount of light coming through, but expose the occupants through the windows on the premise. Or
- cover the lower part of the window. This will allow more natural light to enter evenly from the top into the premise and give better privacy to the occupants.
You decide on the image and setting you want to create.
