Curtain Style / February 13, 2019 / Aaliyah Dotson.
Living room or dining room curtains need not be as heavy duty as a bedroom curtains as they need to let light in so the material doesn't have to be as thick as there is found in bedrooms. Modern houses today the windows are quite large so they can look very decorative bunched up tied up either side of the window people like curtains in living rooms and dining room to fit in how they have decorated the rooms.
Curtains provide insulation - Typically blinds are thin and offer minimal heat insulation to a room. Compare this with a lovely warm set of curtains which not only keep the heat inside but also cut draughts as they can hang below the window ledge, unlike blinds which stop just above the ledge. Curtains can also be interlined with a thick material to add extra heat insulation.
Curtains are easy to hang - Want to change your curtains? Simply unhook them from your curtain pole, attach the hooks to your new curtains and away you go. Replacing vertical blinds can involve unhooking each blind from the next, unclipping each one carefully (the plastic is easy to snap), and then going through the whole rigmarole in reverse to put them back up. Other blinds must be removed all in one, making it easy to damage them as they are taken down or put back up.
An end-stop should be placed at both ends of the curtain tracking setup. Curtain tracking end-stops are used to prevent curtain carriers from slipping out. One end should contain a snap out fitting to allow for easy installation and replacement of curtain carriers. Snap out fittings sit inside an end-stop and are easily removed. Removal is necessary to install or replace your curtain carriers without removing the curtain tracking from the ceiling.
