Till the industrial revolution took place, only the rich could afford to buy curtains. These curtains were usually plain and coloured, and were made from silk or linen. In some homes, winter curtains were made from wool. The purpose of curtains has not changed over the ages; curtains are placed inside over windows to keep prying eyes from looking in to a home and to keep the interior of the house warm in winters. Curtains also blocked out exterior light.
As mentioned above, electric curtain tracks can be fitted which allow you to control your curtains from the comfort of your armchair. Although it may seem like the height of laziness, there is a practical aspect to electric curtain tracks. When on holiday, people typically use automated light-switching devices but have to leave curtains or blinds half open. Electric curtains can be set to open and close at set times each day, giving the impression that someone is home. Alternatively a light sensor can be added to open and close the curtains in conjunction with the daylight hours.
The type of material you use will also allow you to control the sunlight which enters your room. During the night, these curtains can also serve as covers for privacy purposes. There are numerous types of curtains and each one of these has their own unique purposes. Some types, for instance the sheer grommet curtains, are mostly used for decorative purposes. Sheer grommet curtains add a soft touch to living rooms and furthermore serve the purpose of a filter as well, preventing sunlight from directly entering the room. This keeps the room temperature from rising and making the room too hot. These sheer grommet curtains also provide concealment, blocking the views from the rooms according to your desires. Sheer grommet curtains can be used to liven up your living room in some of the most unique and beautiful ways. We have highlighted for you some of the ways you can achieve this.
