Curtain Style / February 7, 2019 / Aaliyah Dotson.
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.
To establish the height of the curtain there are three measurements needed to be determined. Begin by measuring the height from the floor to the ceiling. For this example let's start with a 10 foot ceiling which is 120 inches in height. Next measure the height of the carrier and curtain tracking; this is usually 3"-4" combined. The third measurement to determine is the open space wanted below the bottom of the curtain; 12"-18" is typical.
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 and curtain tracks or poles can be bent to fit a bay window - Although some vertical blinds can be bent to the shape of a bay window, a vertical blind will take away the lovely effect and leave the room looking more like an office. A curtain track or curtain pole can be made to measure and bent to suit a bay window and the curtains will once again add elegance and style. Curtain tracks are also more flexible and can be made to fit a wider range of bay windows.
