What Are The Benefits Of Installing Curtains & Roller Blinds?

 What Are The Benefits Of Installing Curtains & Roller Blinds?



There is a saying that the eyes are the windows to our soul. Still, it is quite difficult for anyone to read what you are thinking or feeling just by gazing into your eyes. But that is not the case for actual windows! If left bare, without curtains or blinds, one has zero privacy to relax comfortably at home with nosy neighbours peering in as they walk past your home.

The most common type of housing in Singapore is high-rise apartments due to the limited amount of land we have. Neighbours walking down the corridors have a full view into your home through your living room windows or sometimes bedroom windows. Those living in the adjacent block can also easily look straight into your homes and watch your family’s movements. Even in private housing estates, terraces are often squeezed closed to each other and neighbours have access into your family’s private life if your windows are left bare. A simple solution to these privacy issues would be to put up blinds or curtains at the windows and this is not the only benefit!

Helping to control the amount of sunlight pouring into your home is another functionality of curtains and blinds. It helps to keep out the bright glare and heat of the afternoon sun during lazy weekends. It also prevents the morning sun from awakening you from your peaceful slumber when you sleep in. Curtains and blinds can be easily adjusted to control the degree of sunlight streaming into your home.

Curtains are the finishing touch to your home’s d├ęcor. They can be easily changed to reflect the mood or season. For a homely look, curtains with deep warm colours like red or maroon are perfect. On the other hand, curtains with bright flower prints will liven up your homes with the colours of summer and spring. And it is not just the colour you get to decide on. Pick from a huge variety of styles like drapes or box-pleated curtains. The variety for blinds is plentiful as well! Just to name a few, you can pick between fabric and bamboo-woven blinds to complement your furniture set.  Privacy and tasteful decoration for your home is available at the snap of your fingers!

Curtains or blinds are easy to install and simple to clean. Curtains can be hand-washed or machine-washed depending on the material. There are usually tiny instruction labels attached to the curtains that advise on how to clean the curtains. Occasionally vacuum your curtains and fabric blinds to ensure that dust and mite do not collect over time. Fabric blinds can be cleaned using fabric cleaner and a wet sponge. Wooden or plastic blinds just need to be wiped free of dust with a wet cloth.

Why Choose Custom Made Curtains?


Why Choose Custom Made Curtains?

It is common scenario that when people start designing their rooms with matching furniture, walls, pictures, home decor their designing process is forced to come to an abrupt halt when they fall short of finding complementary draperies. Ready made curtains often do no succeed to complete the explicit look, fitting to the theme and requirement of the space. There are innumerable reasons why one would choose custom made draperies over their store bought versions.

With their distinctive fringes, pleats, patterns, bands, trims and ties, custom drapes help create a personalized and dramatic look in coordination with any space. Personal preferences of length, style, lining, coverage and fullness are guaranteed by custom made drapes. Lining makes all the difference. The lining helps to block the sun rays, prevent fading and also adds extensiveness to the drape.

Custom draperies are lined with a thicker fabric that blocks the sun in the best possible way. The composition of the lining provides the curtain more rich detailing, strength and fullness. Tailored to suit specific needs and designs, the custom made drapes are meant to be exclusive and unique. In contrast with the readymade curtains, there is no such concept as standard sizes with custom draperies. They can be sewn to fit precisely into any shape or size. 

The fabrics used in custom curtains are very different. They are environment friendly, these drapes do not contain dyes, pesticides or chlorinated phenol. They are not harmful to the skin, as they are not chemically treated. Made from the best raw materials, they are made to be soft, eco friendly fabrics.

As they undergo rigorous processes, such custom made curtains do not easily collect dust and dirt, hence safe for children. Store brought curtains are prone to be harsh on the skin and get rough after a few washes, but custom made drapes are very delicate and light to touch. Although more expensive than store brought drapes, more and more people are started to order designers to craft custom made drapes for their abode.They are worth the extra money.

Experienced and skilled interior decorators and designers are entrusted to create these drapes, from start to finish, ensuring high standards in terms of value of each of the curtains. Store brought draperies are made with solid, neutral colors and in standard sizes. But custom made curtains offer an infinite range of prints, colors and sizes, something that readymade curtains do not present.

Endless choices are available to go well with the personal taste and fitting to the style of the space. Custom drapes also allow for creating coordinating covers, cushions, and other room accessories from the same fabric. While mass produced curtains need to be changed every two or three years, the custom made drapes go for many years longer owing to superior quality and retained fabric color.

Among all reasons to make an investment in custom made curtains most significant among them is value. Custom made drapes is a better alternative to readymade curtains. They make a statement in the room, accent windows and draw the eye.
