Most people are often torn between adding a lining to their curtains and leaving things as is. Giving your curtains a lining will protect the material for dirt on the window sill or from an open window. It also acts as means of insulation by keep excessive light and heat out. The flip side to this is that curtains without lining are much easier to manage and can be washed and dried much faster.
Beautiful curtain designs are also being made from used and recyclable products. Natural fibre like jute and wooden straws are also used to create wonderful contemporary designs in curtains. Multi-layered curtains are also in vogue if you wish to give your room a formal and rich look.
There are several ways in which you can use your curtains. For instance - give your windows more height by placing the curtain rod a few inches above its designated spot. Buy a few extra meters of curtain material and let it trail a bit on the floor. It adds to the illusion of greater height. If you would like to bring in the sunshine, add around 45 cms more to the length of the curtain on each side of your rod. This way you can pull aside the curtain without covering the panes. This is a great way to make small windows look much bigger than they are.
There also many other types of curtains which have other uses, not just for windows. Shower curtains for example are made purely to keep water from leaking out of your shower or bath and are made of water proof material. Some curtains which are hung over doorways where a door would normally be are known as portieres. These types of curtains were very popular in wealthy households in the Victorian era.
