Indeko Curtain & Blind Studio has a number of products for your windows that will help keep in the warmth in winter and also help keep out the heat in summer. Possibly the overall best performance will come from a curtain with blockout lining and inclusion of a bumph interlining. For smaller windows and odd shaped windows, we would generally recommend a Luxaflex Duette or Verosol Pleated blind. In situations where there is no real privacy issue and you want to retain the view then perhaps consider a Versol Silverscreen Metalised Roller blind or Pleated blind. Both work exceptionally well in keeping in the warmth in winter and keeping out the heat in summer.
In summary, we have a number of options for insulating your home for both winter and summer.
There is typically 3 different types of floor lengths to choose from when selecting your curtains.
Slight float – Typically 1-2 cms above the floor: Can be used for all curtain types from light weight to heavy and allows curtains to fall without any break so that they fall straight. The slight float curtain length does not touch the floor.
Resting – Can sit from 0-2 cms on the floor, suitable for all weight fabrics from light to heavy. The resting or kiss curtain length is the hardest of all to ensure the look you are trying to create as it requires absolute accuracy from the rod/track to the desired floor length. The finished curtain often sees a slight bend in the curtain.
Puddle – This is best suited to heavier fabrics to achieve that beautiful full effect typically seen in European and/or character homes. A puddled finish looks fabulous using quality fabrics such as shot-silk, velvet or linen. The more length in the curtain ensures you see the richness and natural fibres in the fabric, this also results in a higher volume of puddle.
Deciding whether to have your curtain length resting on the floor, puddling or a slight float depends a lot on your personal choice along with the fabric chosen. For example, resting or a slight float can look lovely on sheer curtains, however due to the lightness of the fabric, would not sit well using a puddle finish.
