One of the quickest, simplest and most affordable ways to change the look of a room is with new curtains. Also called curtain window coverings, drapes, draperies, and curtain panels, curtains are decorative as well as functional. Curtains and drapes can soften the angular lines of a window, add insulating value and filter or control the light.
Curtains and drapes also come in many styles rod pocket curtains,
or curtain panels, are clean-lined and have a rod pocket. Pinch pleated curtains
have a pleated heading and tab top curtains have a tabbed heading. Kitchen curtains
also called Tier curtains or Cafe curtains
are a great way to add a little privacy at your window without blocking all of the light. Sheer curtains
and lace curtains
can be layered underneath other curtains or used on their own. Thermal curtains
help keep cold air out in winter and rooms cooler in summer.
