Curtain Style / February 11, 2019 / Aaliyah Dotson.
Reliable and cost effective - With so many working parts or fiddly clips, blinds tend to be less reliable than curtains on a track or a pole. Combining curtains with a good, reliable curtain track or pole can be a more cost effective option; especially as curtain prices have been greatly reduced since the introduction of ready-made and express curtain making services. And if your requirements change, you can simply hang new curtains on your existing track or pole.
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.
Quality curtain tracking is made of 16 gauge extruded aluminum and is typically sold in eight foot lengths. If shorter lengths are required, tracking may be easily cut down with a hacksaw. Curves pre-bent to 45 deg. and 90 deg. are available for applications requiring the curtain to bend around a room; curves are 2 feet by 2 feet and bent at a 12 inch radius.
If you have just bought a house or you are thinking of re-decorating your home, consider the options presented to you by a number of different curtain types and their functions. With correct curtain choice, it is possible to change the look and feel of a room completely. Curtains are an important feature of your room's style and feel. Curtains are no longer just used for blocking cold, keeping warmth inside, blocking out light and creating a private atmosphere.
