If you are buying a new house or are redecorating an old one something that is often overlooked is the curtains you get. They can make a big difference to the overall feel of the room as well as providing privacy from the outside world. In this article I’ll be mentioning some of the more common types and give an overview of each.
Regular window curtain
These are usually thick enough to be opaque to the human eye and only let minimum light in at all. Most of the time people remember to get these, its the kitchen and net curtains that most people forget about. Needless to say these come in many colours and materials.
These aren’t a necessity but if privacy is an issue inyour neighbourhood you might consider investing in them. They allow light through but not enough to let people see into the house throughout the day. They aren’t as popular as they once were but many people still have them in addition to their regular curtains.
These are commonly overlooked and many people just leave their kitchen windows bare without curtains. However they can provide an extra boost to the kitchen, and are usually very cheap. They need to be easily washable as they often get dirtied by splashing from the washing up or other food stains.
Choosing a set of curtains for your house shouldn’t be a chore! Make sure you know what you’re looking for before starting though to avoid stress.
