If you think using tinted windows or window films can protect your home from the sun's heat and glare, think again! Tinted glass or window films do not stop the sun's rays from reaching the glass, and once the rays come in contact with the glass, they immediately start radiating heat inside the house. This makes tinted glass or window films totally ineffective against heat and light. The only solution is to use solar window screens. These screens use a specially created screen mesh that deflects most of the sun's high-energy UV rays before they even reach the windowpane. Some of the heat is also absorbed by the screen, while a large extent of it is dissipated to the surrounding atmosphere outside the window. Thus, these windows cut down the heat and sun-rays entering the house or building.
So what makes thermal curtains thermal? They are basically the same as ordinary curtains with one major difference; the fabric they are made from has a foam thermal backing. Most thermal curtains are made from cotton or polyester or a blend of the two, these fabrics give the curtains easy cleaning qualities with most of them being machine washable. One of the biggest advantages of thermal curtains is the price and they are in close competition with ordinary curtains and with the wide ranges of colours and styles available in ready made curtains and curtains made to order, why wouldn't you opt for a thermal pair.
When deciding on a curtain rod design, you may be surprised at the abundance of choice. Double, as well as standard rods are common. Drapery hardware such as tie backs, curtain shelf brackets, curtain rings and others may add to a decision dilemma. To help you decide, picture your wall coloring and texture. What look are you going for? Dramatic or more subdued? Drapery hardware size is another major factor. Again decide if you are aiming for a "statement" or a more cohesive blend? Once you get home, hold your items against the wall and window you want to cover. If you are at all unhappy, or course return them and try again!
So how do you narrow all these options down to the perfect curtain rod for your window? It's not as hard as it sounds. Like most projects you'll need to have a plan, so start deciding - -
