Commonly used in kitchens and bathrooms, they provide privacy while adding a stylistic element to the room. These curtains are installed inside a window frame, but generally only cover the bottom half of a window. If you prefer to cover the whole window, these may not be your best option, but you can also install a valance from the top of the window.
As the name implies, black-out (or sometimes known as block-out) curtains are constructed from heavy, usually dark-coloured materials or fabrics that prevent heat and light from entering or escaping a room. These are a great option for bedrooms or rooms where you want extra privacy and protection from light and heat.
Curtains are available nowadays in a wide variety of fabrics. Lighter fabrics help keep the room light and airy and are preferred during hot weather while heavy draperies with lots of fabric are more suitable for colder weather. It is best to choose two kinds of curtains for the bedroom for both seasons of winter and summer and change them accordingly every year. Choosing transparent curtains makes the room look sleek and futuristic but they are not very functional as they cannot successfully keep out light and can be a hindrance during sleep.
Another style is the puffball design. With this style, you can make your curtain look like a slot pleat curtain. The only difference is that you have to keep 12 inches over the slots. After hanging the curtain into the pole, puff up the upper portion.
While they do not compare to other styles when it comes to privacy, lace curtains are soft, elegant window coverings. Moreover, lace curtains provide more privacy than bare windows but they also allow natural light to pass.
