To Block out Light
If you’re looking to completely block out light, opt for blackout curtains and drapes. We recommend this for bedrooms or other private areas.
To Let in Light
Both curtains and shades have sheer options that let in light. Choosing a sheer curtain or blind means that as the sun shines in, your home will be flooded with a beautiful light.
To Alternate Between the Two
If you would like the ability to alternate between allowing light to shine through and completely blocking it out, curtains with blinds underneath work best, as the blinds can be lowered or raised to your liking during the day.
To Block Out Noise/Insulate
Curtains that extend from the top of the window to the floor and contain a thick lining are best for blocking out noise and insulating your home. Polyester is the most popular choice for noise-reducing and insulating curtains. Most of our fabrics already have a thick back lining that can help with this.
