If you are wondering why people use living room curtains instead of the usual blinds, then here are some reasons. Blinds are more expensive; that is why people use curtains instead. We should be practical nowadays. We must spend our money wisely so that we can save enough to spend on more important expenses. Curtains offer the same functions as blinds have, yet costing much less.
Curtains add more color. You can put up living room curtains so you can add more color to that area; most blinds are just plain and monotonous. Curtains are always a welcome addition to your home because they help you increase the style of certain areas around the home, and also add another element to the rooms’ color scheme. Even if you already have blinds installed on the windows, you can just put curtains over them; this will give extra elegance and a cozy ambiance to the room.
You can even change your curtains as frequently as you want; either to have them washed or you want or you want different designs depending on the occasion; there are curtains that have designs for different celebrations such as Christmas and Valentine’s Day. I like it when the wind blows making the curtains flutter, it makes people feel comfortable and relaxed.
Another reason is that curtains help regulate heat around the house. If the climate is too cold, you can add heavier or thicker living room curtains to keep the cold out. When summer gets too hot, you can just slide your living room curtains to the side of the window to let the summer breeze. You will also save on energy bills if you do this. Curtains also provide additional privacy when installed over blinds. If you think that rolling the blinds down is not enough, then put up a curtain with the right thickness to give you that much needed privacy.
