Curtains or draperies add color and beauty to the living room. The type of material of your curtains can also control the amount of sunlight entering the room. At night time, these curtains serve as covers for your own privacy. There are different kinds of curtains and each as their own purpose. Some curtains, such as sheer ones, are mostly used for decoration. Sheer curtains can add a soft touch to the living room and also serves as like a filter so that direct sunlight doesn’t enter the room, thus, not making it too hot. Sheer curtains also provide concealment of the indoor.
Fabric is an essential part of choosing curtains, since the material will dictate how well your curtains function and hold up over time. As any decorator will tell you, curtains make a room—but only when chosen correctly. When it comes to window treatments, it’s a matter of color and fabric, length and lining, and custom-made versus off-the-shelf.
There is another classification of curtains which we call block-out curtains. This type is the opposite of sheer curtains because it is opaque and thick and provides a total blockage of the sunlight from the window. Block out curtains are useful for insulating a room and also for decoration.
Lacy curtains, fresh florals, and plenty of monogrammed pillows are just a few of the feminine touches that give this room its calming and sweet mood. Pieces scored at thrift stores and flea markets were refreshed with paint, then artfully applied to achieve the shabby-chic distressed look.
