So you have finally decided to take down those curtains and give your home a whole new look. Even the most amateur of interior designers will be able to tell you how much of a difference a good set of curtains can do to your home. There are so many materials used for curtains and you will need to settle on one that best suits your décor and home.
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.
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.
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.
