Cotton was the main fabric used in traditional blinds, as it could be easily dyed in different colours, and designs could be woven in the fabric or printed on them. Lace blinds, with different designs woven in them, were also an extensive and essential part of traditional shades. In fact, lace curtains are quite popular even today.
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.
For bedrooms with large windows, the curtains can be used to add coziness to the room. If the room is small, they can help to make it look bigger or spacious. You can have floor length curtains made of lace or satin, which is ideal for both children and adult bedrooms. You can also use sheer curtains in the bedroom, which make it look good and also make it appear bigger and spacious. The curtains can either be roll ups or pull apart and you can also have valances or cornices.
