There are many types of curtains you can choose to hang in your home, and linen curtains are among the most popular. These curtains come in many different colors, styles and patterns, making them perfect for any kind of room or decor you have in mind. In order to help you decide whether linen curtains are right for your home, we’ve put together this guide on the various kinds of linen curtains available and how to pick the best ones for your space.
Sheer linen curtains
Linen curtains are an excellent way to filter light and can be a great investment for those who live near an open window. They come in many different styles, from the traditional, formal rod-pocket style to the more casual tab top style. All styles are available at so linen as sheers or lined with a contrasting color on the backside. When it comes to sheer linen curtains, they can be hung with or without lining depending on your desired effect. Some people prefer them unlined so you can feel like you’re outside when you’re inside. Others may want them lined so that they have more texture and room-darkening benefits.
Lined linen curtains
Linen curtains come in a variety of styles, colors, and patterns. However, they are always made from linen fabric. The cloth can be dyed different colors and patterned with different designs to match any design you might want for your windows. They are also available unlined or with a lining that can be pulled back for the desired effect. Lining the curtains with blackout lining will help keep the room dark and prevent sunlight from waking you up early in the morning. Lining them with a light-colored lining will let more light into the room during the day without being too bright on your sleeping eyes at night.
Blackout linen curtains
Blackout curtains are the ultimate way to block out light and sound from outside. They’re perfect for bedrooms, living rooms, media rooms, or anywhere else that you need a quiet place to work, study, or sleep. Blackout curtains have an extra layer at the bottom that prevents any light from coming in from the floor. The top layer is a thick linen fabric (typically blackout cloth) which prevents any light from coming through the sides. These curtains are usually lined with insulating material so that heat stays trapped inside your home during cold months and cool air stays inside during hot months. This not only saves you money on your energy bills but also saves natural resources by reducing how much power your HVAC system has to use to maintain comfortable temperatures indoors.
