A house with big windows and beautiful curtains in bright hues is everyone’s dream. Window curtains come in all materials, colors and textures. You will have a myriad of designs to choose your window curtains from. There are a few things you should keep in mind when you go to select curtains for your window: the color of the curtain should compliment the color of the wall of the room, if your room is small you should go for light colors and if the room is big you should for dark colors as it makes your room look spacious yet compact.
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.
Soundproof curtains are all types of curtains that help block out noise but one unfortunate truth is that they can’t block out everything. As people keep moving closer to work in big cities the need to help eliminate noise keeps growing. Noise comes in all forms from cars on a very busy street, loud neighbors, or people just walking by increasing the need for methods to block out or reduce noise. You could even call these curtains noise reducing or sound reducing curtains and there are also various terms of describing the use of soundproof curtains like sound isolation and sound damping.
No matter how good your curtains are, without curtain rods you just cannot put them in place. Curtain rods hold the curtains from the window top and let the curtain fall to its full length. You should first determine if you want to mount your curtain rods on the window casing or on the wall. You can choose the color of the rods to match the color of the wall or the curtains. The brackets that you choose for the rods can range from simple to intricate ones. The choice is completely yours and make sure you choose the best keeping in mind both your taste and your pocket.
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.
