Curtains And Drapes

When we talk about window treatments, there are a lot of options and it can be quite overwhelming to select the best option for your home. If you include interior decorators like curtains and drapes, it can become even more confusing. These terms are often interchanged with shades and blinds as if these were synonyms. However, all these four types of window treatment can be used with a lot of different decorating styles and in most rooms of the house, each one of them has distinct characteristics of its own.

Chances are that you must have heard or even used the terms curtains and drapes interchangeably. This is a common misconception that often confuses even skilled designers. In fact, the reality is that there are many important differences between the two, all of which completely change the feel and functionality of the room. Understanding these differences will help you choose the better option to achieve the desired look for your home.

There are a few different types of lining when it comes to curtains and drapes and they are available in many colors.

Black-out lining

These type of lining provides full privacy as well as light control

Thermal lining

This lining as the name says provides thermal insulation and reduces light control

Self Lined

This is another layer of the same fabric used so that both sides of the drapes and curtains look the same.

Plain cotton lining

This is the most common type of linning used for most of the drapes that are custom made to prolong the life of drapes and curtains.

Don't Use Single Curtain Design & Color Theme For That Complete Home

This really is really a mistake that most people commit. They select a curtain style plus they set exactly the same curtains theme into each room of the home, whether or not this looks good using the interior decoration or otherwise.

The truth is that each room may have a different curtain style, unless of course you’re dealing with a wide open floor concept and you’ll not need a young child themed curtain inside a family room anymore than you’d want bold and splendid window coverings inside a child’s room.

Choose the right window treatment  at Galaxy Design

You will want to choose the best possible window treatments for your home. At Galaxy Design, we will help you do just that. We have an amazing collection of modern curtains and drapes that you will surely love. Here is what you should look at when choosing our product that best suits your requirements:

To Block out the Light

In case you are looking to block out light completely, we suggest you go for the thick-lined drapes. This is a popular choice especially for bedrooms and other private areas.

For Letting in the Light

Curtains come in different variations of thickness and you should choose the sheer curtain that let the light in. Choosing a sheer curtain of a warmer shade will mean that once the sun shines in, your room will be flooded with beautiful light.

Alternating Between the Two

If you wish to alternate between completely blocking out the light and allowing the light to shine through, then curtains having blinds underneath will work best. They can be lowered or raised to suit your needs.

For Blocking Out Noise

Drapes which extend from the top of the window till the floor and contain a thick lining block out noise and insulate your home nicely. Polyester is one of the most popular choices for noise-reducing and insulating drapes.
