Curtains are an invention that dates back all the way to early 3100. B.C. Is that hard to believe? Well, believe it because the great Egyptians were the first ones to invent them and use them ever since. Back then, curtains were made from animal skin and hung on doors and windows with hooks. Well, there’s a bit of history for you. And we’re sure you’re breathing a sigh of relief that we don’t use animal hides to make curtains and drapes in this world. This blog will walk you through curtains and drapes. Take a quick read.

Q And A Time

There are a few questions that we often get asked when it comes to drapes and curtains. So let us walk you through your confusions. Here are a few common questions asked by our clients.

question and answers for curtains and blinds with drapes

Can you put curtains over blinds? 

A: You actually do not need curtains over blinds because the latter provide maximum privacy. However, if you would like to add some style there is no rule saying you can’t add curtains and drapes over blinds.

What is the best kind of curtains or blinds?

Here honestly, it’s your personal choice that you need to make based on how your home has been designed. If you want a more elegant and seamless stylish feel you can go for curtains and drapes. However, if you want a more sophisticated look and are not keen on style blinds will do the job.

How do we hang blinds and curtains?

A: Blinds can be difficult to install and that’s why they come prefixed or are done by someone’s store you bought them from.  However, if you want to do it yourself, there are plenty of YouTube videos you can refer to for guidance. We at Design Cafe, however, suggest getting blinds installed by a professional. Curtains or drapes, on the other hand, are easy to put up as they have rings attached. All you have to do is slide those rings across the rod above your window and you are done.

This is what we at Design Cafe think are some amazing curtains and drapes that you could use in your home. Let us know what you think! Send us an email. Can’t wait to hear from you!
