In this video which happens to be the first one i will describe different types of curtains: A) Types of Curtains: So the first type of curtain is 1) Panel Pair: Panel pair curtains feature two separate curtain panels. This type of curtain is popular in classic and contemporary styles. With a panel pair, you place a curtain on either side of the window.
To close these curtains, you’d pull each panel together. Panel pair curtains can be tied back to create a symmetrical look for your window treatment. 2) Single Panel: With a single panel curtain, one panel covers the entire window. The panel can be pulled to either side to open, and it can be tied back to create a modern, asymmetrical look. These types of curtains are popular in modern and casual styles. 3) Window Treatment Set: A window treatment set includes everything you’ll need to create a full window treatment. A window treatment set almost always includes one or two curtains and a valance. Some window kits also include accessories like tiebacks and a curtain rod. 4) Valance: A valance is a short curtain that hangs at the top of your curtains. These are an optional decorative addition. Valances are a great way to complete a look. These curtains are available separately, or as part of a window treatment set.
You can use a valance without additional curtains in windows with blinds, or to add a decorative flair on windows where full curtains aren’t desired. 5. Window Scarf: A window scarf is similar to a valance. It’s a long, thin piece of curtain fabric that is hung from the top of the window. Window scarfs are a great way to create a dramatic look with your window treatment. 6. Liner Curtain: liners are another optional add-on, and they’re used to provide an additional level of versatility to your curtains. Many people opt to add a liner with sheer curtains, so they have more options when it comes to privacy, and light allowance. Curtain liners often have additional features as well.
For example, they may be thermal, or noise-blocking. The second factor that one should consider before buying curtains is Opacity. Different opacity curtains suit the needs of different rooms and applications. To determine which curtains you need, ask yourself some questions. -: Do you want the curtains to let through some sunlight when they’re drawn or none at all? -:
How much privacy do you need your curtains to provide? -: Do you need your curtains to provide additional features, besides its decorative function? So, if we categorize curtains according to opacity then the first type of curtain is the
a) Sheer Curtain: Thin, semi-transparent fabrics are the basis of sheer curtains. These curtains provide the most daylight in a room when the curtain is closed. Sheer curtains also provide the least amount of privacy, and they serve any additional purpose beyond being decorative. This kind of curtain is most popular in living rooms and dining rooms. Some decorators add a liner to sheer curtains. In doing this, you’re able to enjoy the beauty of your sheer curtains while also being able to benefit from added privacy and additional features.
b) Semi-Opaque: Semi-Opaque curtains are like a blend between sheer curtains and blackout curtains. They allow some daylight into the room when they’re closed. They also provide more privacy than sheer curtains. These curtains are a popular choice for any application.
c) Blackout: Blackout curtains allow the least amount of light to enter a room when they’re closed. These curtains are made of heavier weight materials and often have built-in linings. Blackout curtains provide the most privacy, and they often have additional features beyond their decorative purpose. People often use blackout curtains in bedrooms, dens, theaters, or any other area where keeping out natural light is a concern. Sometimes, blackout curtains are used behind sheer curtains to provide additional features and a more polished look than what you can achieve with a simple curtain liner.
