Following are some most common types of curtains that can give you a better understanding on curtain care
Polyester fabric curtains are generally durable, sturdy, and affordable. Polyester curtains are easy to care for, resisting wrinkling,
shrinking, and stretching. This type of curtains makes a good choice for bedroom or living room curtains. However, one should avoid outfitting
the kitchen with polyester curtains as the material is flammable, absorbs odors, and doesn’t allow for good air circulation. Consider choosing a
darker curtain color for homes with children or high-traffic areas, as it is more difficult to remove stains from polyester fabric. Most
Polyester curtains cannot be dry in high heat as the fabric will melt or stick to each other
Curtains constructed of cotton or a cotton blend are a versatile option, as they offer a crisp, clean feel that suits traditional or modern
decorating styles. If you’re looking to block sunlight in a bright bedroom or provide privacy in your living room, choose cotton curtains with a
tight weave, or opt for a cotton panel with lining. If you prefer your room to have a light, airy feel, go for sheer cotton curtains. Cotton or
cotton blend curtains may have the possiblity of shrinkage if the meterial is not pre shrunk. Always make sure your cotton fabric curtains are
tailored with access meterials in case of shrinkage, optionally speak to the manuafacturer and make sure the meterials are pre shrunk before it
Silk curtains are heavier and drape well. Keep in mind that silk fabrics are dry clean only, making this material a more high maintanence option
when it comes to laundering. If you’re hanging silk curtains in rooms that receive a lot of natural light, protect your investment by using
window shades or a lighter-colored panel for lining, as silk is very susceptible to sun damage. Faux silk curtain options are available that
offer easier laundering and more durability. Silk curtains also cannot be ironed on direct heat. Always request for steaming option. However,
not all silk curtains need to be ironed. certain sils turned out to be fine after dry cleaning.
Linen tends to be a billowier fabric that still provides a tailored look, making curtains constructed of this material perfect for a casual dining area, airy bedroom, or contemporary living room. Linen curtains tends to wrinkle easily hence avoid crumpling it during long term storage. Always fold the curtains and pack in it an orderly manner to avoid wrinkles when ready to be used. Linen drapes nicely, and the sheer fabric doesn’t block the sun, which allows for natural light to fill your living space. Linen curtains are typically dry clean only, and they should be hung immediately to avoid wrinkling.
Velvet is a heavy fabric that keeps out the cold, making these window treatments ideal insulators for homes with drafty windows. Keep in mind that Valvet fabrics are dry clean only, making this material a more high maintanence option when it comes to laundering. Velvet curtains drape well, so they offer a polished look that dresses up formal dining rooms, traditionally styled living rooms, or regal master bedrooms. Thanks to their thickness, velvet curtains provide extra privacy and help to block sounds and light.
Lace is a very sheer fabric, allowing curtains of this material to diffuse natural light and offer an open, airy feel. Use lace curtains to add a romantic touch to your traditionally styled dining room, or hang them over French doors to provide some privacy while still letting you enjoy the outdoor sunlight. Lace curtains are typically available in neutral shades, such as white, ivory, and ecru, so they’re easy to coordinate with any color scheme in your room. Depending on the construction of the lace curtains, they may be dry clean only or machine-washable.
