Many people dismiss the added benefits curtains and blinds contribute to a home. Some of them do not spend anything more than just providing them the basic requirements of blocking out light and providing privacy within the home. Some may not know this, but curtains and blinds play quite a few important roles in enhancing our home.
Historical Use of Curtains and Blinds
In older civilisations, people used some kind of fabric or animal skin to cover windows and doors for both privacy and warmth. They are also used to separate their living quarters into sections for separate functions. Over time, it became a signal of wealth as different types of fabric material, colours, and even the way it is sewn, are different ways to show off one’s abode to others.
Modern Usage for Curtains and Blinds
Today, curtains and blinds do not deviate much from its original purposes. They are guardians of the homeowner’s privacy, protectors from weather conditions and because of that, they must be chosen and set up appropriately. Here are some popular types of curtains and blinds and what they are useful for:
Day Curtain: Usually made from sheer material to softly filter light in, without blocking too much to keep room looking bright. Usually paired with night curtains for extra privacy, to insulate heat and block out more light at night for peaceful slumber. .
Blackout Curtains: As its name suggest, it completely blocks any light from entering and absorbs both heat and sound very well due to its thickly-lined fabric. Most would opt for this straight, rather than install a day and night curtain, especially in the bedroom.
Korean Blinds: The most trendy and useful blinds in the Singapore market since 2019, they are mesmerising to look at as you pull the blinds open and close to adjust the slats to allow as much or as little light as you prefer. Also known as Combi blinds, Zebra blinds or Rainbow blinds due to this unique feature.
Roller Blinds: They are most favoured for its classic, clean-cut lines and waterproof feature. This makes it easy to clean and maintain it.
Besides serving a functional purpose to insulate your living space and keep out prying eyes, some do not know that curtains and blinds offer even more benefits than that.
