Crystal Curtains and Other Dreams

At the 2009 Academy Awards ceremony, an occasion that is well known for its glitz and glamour, the stakes were upped considerably thanks to a three-ton, 60-foot tall three-ton custom designed curtain, made of Swarovski crystals that sparkled with over one hundred thousand crystals. The amazing cascading crystal curtain and the sparking light it emanated almost upstaged the stars of the night none of whom could hope to shine as brightly Unfortunately, that curtain isn’t up for sale – maybe because no one could hope to afford to buy it!

The Blackout: For a Splendid Night Sleep

For those of us who need a dark room for a good night’s sleep, the blackout blind can be a salvation.  However beautiful our curtains are, they might not be enough to keep the light out, particularly in the summer months when the dawn breaks very early or for shift workers trying to sleep in the day.

At Fittexpert we have fitted a great many blackout blinds.  We will measure and fit the perfect blind all of which can be completely tailored to wherever in the house you need them, perhaps in the bathroom, in your bedrooms and in any other areas of the house where you would like to have greater light control.

A lot of people will associate blackout blinds only with better sleep and blocking out the light and it is true that having an early night or living on a well-lit street are the most common reason for thinking of having black out blinds fitted.  More and more people, however, are choosing black out blinds to help them create an ambience in the likes of increasing popular media rooms, particularly when projectors are used.

Ask us about the large range of blinds and dazzling array of colours that we have, that can be matched to your own interior design and make a real statement in any room.

The Evolution of Curtains

Curtains and blinds haven’t always been used in the way that they are now; they have had many uses over the centuries. One of the very first uses for curtains was to hang over tents in the middle-eastern dessert. Its purpose was not only to provide privacy, but also a very primitive form of air conditioning after wetting them with water to take some of the brutal heat off. It probably wasn’t the best air-conditioning but certainly effective.

It wasn’t unto the 17th century that windows started being made much larger than the very small windows previously made due to expense. During this time, the Victorians made full use of curtains for many different reasons including to help with insulation in their cold homes and to show off to guests. Victorians typically hung three pairs of curtains at their windows; one thick outer pair, a lace-like middle pair and a third thinner pair. The middle pair was the only one to be opened usually.

The evolution of curtains

It was only in the 1940’s that ready-made curtains were being supplied to stores and by the 1950’s curtains were an essential home component, used to match the architectural style of the home. It’s safe to say that curtains have come a very long way since windows were wooden or marble slats, often proving to be very drafty. Today, their main purpose is to provide privacy and for some, to show off artistic taste, and fortune.
