Curtain design ideas for home windows

Curtains do more than just regulating the light and heat in a space, and maintaining privacy at night. They add loads of charm and character to your space.

Windows are the most important element of a house’s architecture. Curtains on it serve as an interface between the window and the homeowner/user for the purposes of cross-ventilation, thermal insulation, noise control, two-way light regulation and keeping privacy of the living space from outsiders. They can make any room look higher, wider, more spacious, appealing, organic and in harmony with other decorating elements depending upon the perfect combination of colour, pattern, fabric and model used. There are many variants to choose and this list below will help you pick one that suits your style, preference and taste.
