Home Decor Multitaskers: Lined Curtains
It’s always a good thing when home décor can serve more than one purpose. Items that multitask can save time, money and aggravation. Lined curtains are a perfect example of this.
They Save Energy
Lined panels are insulating, so they help to keep cold out in the winter and stave off heat in the summer. This means you can keep your thermostat at a more energy-efficient setting.
They Absorb Noise
The lining on these curtains adds an extra layer between you and the window, which helps block outside noise. The thicker the fabric and the lining, the most noise-dampening properties the curtain will have.
They Take Care Of Themselves
The curtain’s lining will protect it from sunlight, which will help it keep its color longer. Sunlight can fade most fabrics over time. Lined curtains will last longer because less sunlight will get through.
They Can Help You Sleep Better
Curtains with linings filter light and keep your room dimmer. Panels with blackout linings can block it completely. These curtains are ideal for those who work at night and sleep during the day or people who are sensitive to any light.
In addition to saving money and improving your quality of life, lined curtains can also improve your home’s look. They come in many styles and colors so they can work with any décor. Panels are available in a host of fabrics from silk to cotton duck, making it easy to incorporate them into any setting from formal to casual.
