Curtains. Thursday , August 31st , 2017 - 12:14:31 PM
First things are looking at how tight of weave it is and if it’s really stated to be blackout. If a curtain says it has 99% blackout then it normally means that the curtains have been put through at least 3 coats of liquefied rubber polymer. This helps not only to close up the gaps so no light comes in but helps reduce sound as there’s less of a chance for it to get in. However watch for reviews that state they saw light coming in as then it probably isn’t coated and you won’t get as much noise reduction as you want. The next things to look for are how thick or heavy the fabric is as the thicker it is the better those soundproof curtains will be. While it maybe obvious avoid anything related to silk in your curtains as these do not block out any sound despite what companies may say. The final thing to do is just test curtains yourself. Not all curtains will block out the noise you think they will so you may need to experiment with a few different set of curtains before you find that perfect set.
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.
For large windows situated in the living room, choose pleated or layered curtains made from fabrics like silk, satin or velvet. You can also have beaded curtains. Having valances or pelmet to cover the curtain rods will give the curtains a better finish. For windows that face the street, double-sided curtains are better as they give a presentable look. To make the curtains look more fancy use tie backs which also help in gathering up the curtain when not in use. These curtains also help to cover some flaws in the room. They can also be used to neutralize extremely light or dark shades on the walls.
