Curtains are a great way to accessorize, to perk or to add a touch of elegance to any room. To go about this instant facelift for your room, you first need to decide on the style of curtain you want.
THE FABRIC CURTAIN
This is the traditional day and night curtain that has been modernized with the large variety of designs in fabrics, and fabric textures. Mostly used in living areas and bedrooms, the fabric curtain’s creativity is really endless. From modern to traditional, the fabric curtain can be used in subtle or bold style to lift ambience in any room.
THE ROLLER BLIND
The Roller blind works great in areas that are mostly exposed to moisture, for example the bathroom and kitchen areas. Depending on the coverage of the material, it also helps shield sunlight and UV. Additionally, maintenance of the roller blind is fairly easy. The modern roller blind is also easy to install, and comes in a wide range of designs from solid colours to chic designs.
THE VENETIAN BLIND
The Venetian blind comes in a variety of manmade materials ranging from wood, plastic, pleated blinds and even metal. This blind can be used in any environment and is relatively low maintenance and easy to clean. This is an ideal choice for places with high moisture such as the kitchen and bathroom. Like the roller blind it also blocks UV. The Venetian blind is suitable for windows of all sizes, as it can be tailored in width and length.
THE ROMAN BLIND
The Roman blind was commonly used in traditional homes but has now made way to modern homes with a wide array of patterns and designs. Having quite similar characteristics to the Venetian blind, the mechanism is smoother and stacks more evenly on top. Mostly manufactured in fabric, this blind is designed using either layers of wave-like patterns or straight layers of fabric.Roman blinds come in 2 varieties, the Looped Roman Shade and the Classic Roman Shade. Both these blinds are designed to create to give an effect of dimension and depth.It is mostly used in living areas or small areas with restricted space for curtains. Roman blinds are definitely one of the effective ways to modernize your home.
SHOPPING FOR CURTAINS AT AKEMIUCHI
In search for the finishing touches of my home, I came across a familiar store that I bought my bedding needs from. I decided to stop by and to my surprise they have now ventured into curtains!
During my boarding school days, I grew up using Akemiuchi products for bedding and have also brought their products for friends and family. I have always remembered Akemiuchi for their great range of creativity and design, vibrant colours with exceptional quality.
