Blaguna Rajani. Curtains. June 30th , 2017.
Curtains are often used to conceal the interiors from the outside while allowing the light to filter through. Since they block the sun, they bear the brunt of harsh ultraviolet rays which can cause the colors to fade over time. The effect is accelerated by exposure and intensity so those living in warm climates will be affected quite severely. Vibrantly colored curtains will turn pale after years of continuous use. The darker the initial shade, the more obvious this will be. Smart homeowners will therefore turn to white curtains as these do not have any dyes to worry about. They will retain their appearance for many years with proper care. Another trick is to use a double curtain configuration wherein white curtains face the sun while colored curtains face the room.
Apart from these, you can go for mini-blackout blinds, made of aluminum. You can even have blackout blinds with funky designs and patterns if it suits your tastes.
Cellular Blinds: These blinds have cells stitched together which effectively help in room darkening. As they look like a honeycomb, they are also called honeycomb blinds. Cellular blinds with more than 1 layer are also available.
The first and foremost thing to keep in mind is the obvious difference between the blinds for skylight windows and those for normal ones. Just imagine the beautiful structures in your roof covered with a normal curtain. Wouldn't it look like a flag hanging down? This simply means that the blinds must be provided with enough tension so that they cover up the window well. Most of the skylights are swiveled or pivoted in the middle, so all the routine norms of regular window blinds fail here. The key here is to install an opening sash with voluntary movements. Many of the customized coverings are motorized. They come with a remote control providing a swift movement to the blinds, whereas some are available with manual operations.
