What types of curtains and window decoration are there?
Planning to buy new curtains? To make a conscious choice, you first need to know what types of drapes are available in addition to the standard fabrics. In this article, we’ve listed five different types of curtains and window decoration !
1. Classic Curtains
Such curtains are well known. Classic drapes consist of large pieces of fabric attached to horizontal rods. They come in a variety of different colors, patterns, sizes and thicknesses. Classic drapes are a popular choice for living rooms and bedrooms due to their versatility.
2. Roller blinds
You can close the roller blind by rolling it down. This way, you can decide how much light and insight to let in. You can choose from different types: transparent, translucent or blackout. Since these curtains take up limited space, they are popular in kitchens.
3. Double roller blinds
A variation of the standard roller blind is the double roller blind. These types of curtains consist of two pieces of fabric that move relative to each other. One is light-shielding and the other is transparent. In this way, you can easily control the light.
4. Roman blinds
You can also open Roman blinds by moving them from top to bottom. However, as the name suggests, you can fold this type of curtain instead of rolling them up. Straight lines give it its own look. UNITEC also offers Roman blinds with electric remote control.
5. Vertical slats
Slats are also known as vertical shutters. They hang from the railing like classic curtains and can be opened and closed horizontally. But, like the blinds, you can also rotate the panels so you can control how the light comes in.
