Heidi Gilmore. Curtains. February 19th , 2017.
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.
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!
Acoustic blankets can help out greatly though in areas where it’s hard to hear yourself think over the car noise. Unfortunately no set of curtains will make a room completely soundproof even if you help out the curtains with acoustic blankets. If you are looking for a complete soundproof room there are alternatives like double pane windows, special insulation in the walls, or even different types of drywall. However if you’re looking just to help lower noise and get a better sleep while keeping the costs low then curtains are the way to go.
Curtains form the most important part of your home décor. Imagine a house without curtains. It is like a man without clothes or a flower without petals or trees without leaves. It will be an incomplete home. Curtains give your house a furnished look. They dress up your windows and, most important of all, they protect your house from sunlight and looks from unwanted people into your family peace. Curtains come in a variety of fabrics and designs. You can get normal curtains for your house or expensive designer ones. From silk to cottons to satins to nets to lace to nylon you name it and you will get it, in all fabrics, simple to rich, thick to diaphanous, anything that you want.
For bedrooms with large windows, the curtains can be used to add coziness to the room. If the room is small, they can help to make it look bigger or spacious. You can have floor length curtains made of lace or satin, which is ideal for both children and adult bedrooms. You can also use sheer curtains in the bedroom, which make it look good and also make it appear bigger and spacious. The curtains can either be roll ups or pull apart and you can also have valances or cornices.
