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.
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.
