Most curtains are considered contemporary curtains. This is because of the fact that they go with almost any decor. They offer you a modern alternative to shutters or blinds in the various designs that are available. These can be used in a bathroom, living room, kitchen or bedroom. They are available in many different materials such as silk, linen and polyester that can affect the prices of the curtains. Pinch pleated drapes are one of the most contemporary curtains. They are very sleek curtains and can be made from silk as well as other materials. They are a very elegant curtain.
Shades are better suited for larger rooms - typically master bedroom or living rooms, where minimal light is needed to set the mood. They are practically immovable because of their large sheets and thick, heavy fabric. Shades look better on rooms that you want to look more sophisticated.
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.
Deciding on the kind of curtains you want will depend on what you want to achieve with them. If you are looking for privacy, you will need the thick sort of curtains. Or you may want to bring in the sunshine at times and at others, have your privacy. You may just want to dress up some windows that have been ignored a while. These are all factors that you will have to evaluate before you get down to buying your curtains.
