Many believe that a curtain should only be used for windows. Did you know that a curtain can also be used for a door? Curtains have a different appearance and make the installation look softer and prettier in many ways.
First of all, the curtain will have a softer effect on your sliding doors. Most sliding doors are made from glass and don’t have any barrier to block viewers from seeing into your house. The glass door is also a way of seeing the outside especially if you have a beautiful garden. When you have a curtain you can have both privacy and a view to the outside world.
Curtains or shades that roll upwards should be avoided. These only work if you have a shear curtain behind it to block the light from entering. The more light that enters your home through a door or window the more people on the streets can see in.
Window blinds can be fitted perfectly on the glass panel of the door. They also allow light in without allowing a person to see inside. White blinds could be used on windows and curtains that face the streets. The main reason for this is because white reflects light making it hard for the eyes to see between the gaps. Blinds also allow you to peer outside without having to open a large gap.
Drapes or cascading curtains give the door a fancy appeal that many people will appreciate. The classic style can be tied back on either side with decorative ropes and it can have beautiful hems on the top for decorative purposes.
Luminettes are the curtains that get placed closer to the window or door. This shear fabric lets light pass through but hides what lies inside your house. The luminette is also a gorgeous decoration that works for any installation.
When installing curtains or drapes you can use curtain hooks so that you can easily open and close them. The hooks can be neatly hidden behind the back of curtain so it won’t look unsightly.
Doors have become beautiful art pieces that decorate the outside of the house; and in some cases the inside as well. A custom door manufacturer could create the door you want and add in a few extra elements that will look amazing with your decorative style. Then you can add accents with curtains and drapes that will look interesting and intriguing.
