It gives homeowners a chance to mix and match the kind of window they have with the interior décor of their home.


Usually curtains are chosen according to the kind of window you have in a room.  Drapes are a type of window curtain which is often used in bedrooms to provide privacy and cover the entire window elegantly. Tier curtain is another type which is mainly used to cover bedroom windows. But this one allows better ventilation than drapes.  For other rooms in the house, you may consider different types of window curtains such as café curtains for the dining or kitchen area and valances and net panels for the living room area.
