One other purpose, beside the decorative element, would be to use curtains as a way to block the view from outside into your home. Those curtains don't need to be too thick because they should still allow plenty of light into your home.
Swags are treatments that are scalloped in shape. Several swags might be used on a single window at the top of hanging Cascades or Jabots that are long drapes with angled hems that hang on each side of the window. The many different types of curtains and materials might appear confusing. However, once the types of curtains are viewed and understood, a decision will become clearer. The use of curtains in any room can add personality and class along with providing a purpose. The additional use of decorative hardware such as a decorative rod or rings can only add character.
Make note that a curtain can serve two purposes: It can be a decorative element in your home and it can serve the purpose to block out light. Maybe you have a room where you don't care about blocking out light, in this case the thickness of the curtain will not matter a lot. You can then focus on style or color instead. On the other hand, if the main function of your curtain will be to block sunlight (for example in your bedroom) then a thin and translucent curtain will not be of much use. In such cases you want a curtain made from thick material that won't let through a lot of light. This is also a concern if your house doesn't have blinds and the curtain will be your only way to darken a room during day time.
