The history of curtains goes right back to the 1700's when they were made out of cotton wool or silk, silk being the most expensive and exquisite. In the middle ages fabric was very expensive so only the very rich or upper classes would have them. It wasn't until the industrial era and the development of the textile trade that made fabric prices more affordable to most people. Once the glass industry was in full swing and homes were installed with glass windows, this again helped with the textile industry and brought the prices of curtains down.
One of the most important things that matter when picking out curtains is the thickness of the material. You will have to think about the reason why you need those curtains and in which room they will be used. Consider how much light you want to block and if you want to benefit from the insulation properties of a thick fabric. You ought to know that there are several types of fabrics available for curtains, starting with sheer fabrics and moving on to those that are thicker. It all depends on your personal preferences and you should take all the time you need to decide on curtains.
They come in many different colours and patterns but are mainly maid of wool as they are semi transparent. Jardinière curtains are also full length curtains but they have an arch at the end. These are great for keep the privacy but also allowing you to look out from the inside. Also they allow for sun to shine through into your room. Cafe curtains are slightly different in that they only have half of the window, the bottom half. Found commonly in quaint homes and cafes in France, these are great for kitchens where your window leads onto the back garden.
The grommet-top curtain is casual yet modern. There are large grommets sewn into the curtain at even intervals. A rod is used and goes through the grommets for hanging purposes. The grommet-top curtain is usually a large panel of differing materials and serves as a great light or draft cover.
