Curtains enjoy a place of honor whether it is a beautiful house, elegant mansion, ritzy restaurant or opulent hotel or a shop/beauty parlor. You name it and they are there. You will find use of curtains right from the olden times. Whether they are there can be due to different reasons. It can either be for functional purposes such as to afford protection from elements such as wind, red – hot sun or winter snows or purely as an outlet for man’s creative spirits and décor. Whatever may be the reason curtains and their rods have been a part of human existence and will continue to be there for ages to come.
The richer class of women preferred silk, velvet and linen traditional curtains. A lot of thought and craftsmanship used to go into hanging the blinds in the most elaborate way. Blinds with pencil points and French pleats, with sashes to tie them, were considered to be the height of fashion in traditional curtains. Lace and embroidered edging was added to make traditional curtains look more unique. Some traditional curtains were lined to protect them from fading from sunlight.
Blinds can be dust traps, especially horizontal ones. As more people are suffering from asthma and dust allergies, curtains are a healthy choice, requiring little care to keep them clean and presentable. The tracks and poles need little servicing and the curtains need only be vacuumed or dry cleaned on the odd occasion.
