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.
Soundproof curtains are all types of curtains that help block out noise but one unfortunate truth is that they can’t block out everything. As people keep moving closer to work in big cities the need to help eliminate noise keeps growing. Noise comes in all forms from cars on a very busy street, loud neighbors, or people just walking by increasing the need for methods to block out or reduce noise. You could even call these curtains noise reducing or sound reducing curtains and there are also various terms of describing the use of soundproof curtains like sound isolation and sound damping.
