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.
Living rooms are a great place to add some high-end curtains. Here you can splurge on custom curtains to ensure you get the proper lengths to enhance your room and give the allusion of a grander space. Some nice curtains to add to a living room are velvet curtains or silk curtains. Both styles showcase elegance and give a rich appearance. If you are trying to create a formal living room, be sure to add tassels and trims to your curtains. This will also be a nice place to layer curtains, by adding a set of sheer curtains behind your main drapery panels. If you prefer a more relaxed living area, or may have a high traffic area in this space you can add nice contemporary cotton curtains that can be washed.
Till the industrial revolution took place, only the rich could afford to buy curtains. These curtains were usually plain and coloured, and were made from silk or linen. In some homes, winter curtains were made from wool. The purpose of curtains has not changed over the ages; curtains are placed inside over windows to keep prying eyes from looking in to a home and to keep the interior of the house warm in winters. Curtains also blocked out exterior light.
