Curtains which are known as drapes in the USA are what we use to block out light and preying eyes from looking into our homes. Net curtains help control the ambiance and flow of natural light into a room and when chosen correctly can finish off the decor of a room beautifully. Also known as sheer curtains, they are made from translucent fabric too allow a lot of light into a room and also a basic level of UV protection while also maintaining maximum visibility through the curtains.
The use of curtains remains widely popular for decorative and practical purposes. The basic definition of a curtain is simply a piece of material suspended from above used as a covering or screen that is often one of a pair. The more practical uses of curtains include blocking any type of light, blocking drafts around windows or doors, or blocking water. There is also a stage curtain that goes up when a show begins and this covers the stage during breaks or at the ending of a show. Many people spend a great deal of time to choose curtains that serve either practical and decorative purposes or decorative purposes alone.
Thin layers of sheer chiffon, voil or net curtains can be hung on one rod as a shield over the windows and thick fabric can be used as the front curtains. This type of curtain design requires further embellishments like drapery over the rod and fancy curtain accessories. These curtains are usually ceiling mounted and the length of the curtains is measured in such a way that its ends flow down on the ground.
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.
