travel. Curtains. April 11th , 2017.
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.
Are you wondering how to safely and correctly clean your curtains? The curtains are an important feature of a room. You might have spent hours choosing just the right colour, style and design that perfectly fits your home. So you really should know the best methods to maintaining clean curtains. Your curtains will start looking a bit shabby after a year or more of use. Taking good care of the curtains is essential to keeping your home beautiful and welcoming.
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.
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.
Large windows are most likely found in large rooms such as the bedroom or the living room. Choosing the curtains for these rooms will be determined by certain factors. Some rooms require more privacy than others do; others require more light and require sound absorption. The beauty value of the curtain should also be considered. Finally, before purchasing the curtains consider all the rooms in the house and their decorations. Sometimes it may be a good idea to consult an interior decoration expert.
