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.
The best designs of contemporary curtains are a mix of the traditional and modern ideas of design and style. Roman blinds are a favourite contemporary design for curtains of many people, but owing to their high maintenance, these are usually avoided.
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.
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.
