One place that requires curtains is a patio door. These doors are usually made of sliding glass and require a wide curtain. They can be a problem in terms of leaking air around the seals of the doors. Some curtains provide insulating properties that some blinds, shades and shutters do not so they make a perfect replacement window treatment. Some of the curtains that are available as a patio door treatment are designer curtains. The prices of these can be somewhat more costly than other forms of curtains. Other styles of curtains are not appropriate for a patio door such as country style curtains.
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.
