From Pole to Pole with Fittexpert

The curtain pole as a decorative rather than just a functional item started its life in the United States of America in the second half of the 19th century.  The genius behind the curtain pole and the man who first patented it in 1892 was Samuel Scottron who was a prominent African American inventor.  He registered his invention as ‘the curtain rod’

And there is no doubt that the right curtain pole can be an eye catching and very complimentary addition to your widow decoration.  Whether it is the expensive sounding swish of the pull cord curtain or the more rustic charm of the wooden curtain pole with a tab curtain hanging from it, it is the finishing touch to your room.

Venetians – A ‘Blinding’ Window dressing!

Since the early Venetians, who had a reputation for being great traders, brought the idea of the blind from Persia to Venice the classic elegance of the Venetian blind is something that has never gone out of style. Once freed, those who had been kept as slaves by the Venetians are then thought to have brought the blind to France for personal comfort and as a means of making a living. Cheekily renaming the blind to make it their own, the French name for Venetian blinds is “Les Persienes.”

Why Sheer Roller Blinds are Better than Window Nets

Sheer roller blind offers a light and decorative touch for your windows with the benefits of natural daylight in your home. A sleek alternative to old fashioned net curtains that helps maintain your privacy. The blind allows you to see out, without being seen. The unique sheer sunscreen fabric is designed to eliminate glare, reflect UV rays and diffuse light, while providing excellent daytime visibility.

The ideal window blind for rooms that are over-looked by other properties or rooms next to busy streets with passing pedestrians and traffic. It reduces glare and UV rays making it ideal for sunny rooms so you can watch television without glare and protect your furniture from fading.
