There are fairly thin living room curtains that help reduce the noise a little but on the opposite end are theater and acoustic curtains that block out a lot more however these are usually a lot more costly. Several curtains will come with various layers like foam or vinyl that can help silence that annoying noise. The curtains with multiple layers even if thin are the ones that have the best results. Recently double curtain setups which reduce noise even more are becoming a popular trend to reduce the noise even further.
Typically blinds are thin and offer minimal heat insulation to a room. Compare this with a lovely warm set of curtains which not only keep the heat inside but also cut draughts as they can hang below the window ledge, unlike blinds which stop just above the ledge. Curtains can also be interlined with a thick material to add extra heat insulation.
Where both vertical and horizontal blinds just cover the window and add very little to the look and feel of the room, curtains and their fittings add a certain style. Curtain poles come in a wide variety of styles, from simple metal curtain poles to wood effect ones. Finials (the decorative ends of the curtain poles) also come in all shapes and sizes, so you are sure to find a style that suits your room.
When you choose your curtains for any particular room, consider the aesthetic appeal of the room, whether the curtain enhances a certain style or colour, if done properly the curtain will not only enhance the style of the room, but adds an opulent feel to any space. Be aware that the incorrect choice such as curtains which are dirty and unkempt or miss-matched can give any room an extremely gloomy, uneasy look. When decorating your home with curtains, consider the underside of the curtain, and how it will appear from the outside, especially if your window is street or entrance facing. The appearance of your curtains from the outside of your house will immediately affect the appearance of your house from the street.
If you do not measure your windows and just guess you may end up with the made-to-measure curtains either being too large or too small and you certainly don’t want that! they must fit properly so take the time to get accurate measurements of your windows and then you will have no problems!
