Some families used to have two sets of blinds, one for summers and the other for winters. The summer curtains usually consisted of two sets of blinds. Net blinds would be drawn during the day to let the sunlight in, and a heavier set of shades mounted on a separate rail would be used to cover the windows at night.
Although white or cream blinds will fit in with most room styles and colours, they do nothing to enhance it. Curtains can blend in with your room, or can be chosen to enhance or contrast with it. Redecorating? No problem, just choose new curtains to match. Curtains can also have trimmings and contrast edges to pick out other colours within the room. Buttons can be added to pleats, cord can be added to edges or pleats as can a contrast trimming. Curtains offer a much wider scope for design.
The richer class of women preferred silk, velvet and linen traditional curtains. A lot of thought and craftsmanship used to go into hanging the blinds in the most elaborate way. Blinds with pencil points and French pleats, with sashes to tie them, were considered to be the height of fashion in traditional curtains. Lace and embroidered edging was added to make traditional curtains look more unique. Some traditional curtains were lined to protect them from fading from sunlight.
