Window curtains like the clothes we wear, provides modesty to bare view of the interior. And similarly shows off a personal taste of style as well as a functional purpose.
When first entering a room, the windows by itself may not initially attract any attention but, fitting it with the best possible choice of window curtains or window drapes could enhance the window to create a better focal point.
The words curtains and drapes are usually interchanged. However, there is a slight difference between the two:
Drapes, usually subdued colors can be distinguished from curtains by the fabric or lining attached on the reverse side to prevent the fabric from fading, to correct poor lighting conditions, to protect interior spaces from UV rays and to add weight to the drape to give it a better fall.
Window curtains on the other hand, are available in various colors, designs, fabrics and styles. Choosing curtains that are easy to clean and practical to use is a better option.
If you want to give your room a different look and rotate them often, you can go for casual cotton curtains as these are more manageable and easy to wash and change. Curtains are a great home decoration and serve various purposes. Putting up a fresh set of curtains during festive seasons brightens up and refreshes the home nicely for the occasion.
Curtains also control the lighting in your home, keep the dust out and can be used to make a room appear more spacious than it actually is. The color, style and design of material can significantly change the interior and settings of a room.
Making That Decision On Curtains
Deciding on which type of curtain to suit your home may be a simple pick of a catalogue or it can be a indecisive task especially when you consider it’ s an investment and the cost involved. Catalogues give you an idea based on a prearranged glossy showroom image but, lacks the show and feel of the actual fabric as well as, and the true colors.
Alternatively, you could engage an interior designer but, consultant charges only adds to cost of the curtains which will not make practical sense.
