Linen is known as the world’s strongest natural fiber and is far more durable than cotton. The strength of the fiber directly contributes to the strength of the fabric the garment is made of. Thus, linen clothing is very long-lasting.
Curtains are an essential part of every home’s decor. And having the right curtains can be the last piece to the puzzle – the furnishing that makes the room while having the wrong ones . . . well, no one wants to look at bad curtains.
When given an option, should the curtains be lined or non-lined? What are the differences? We’ll find out in this article.
Lined curtains, as the name would suggest, have a supplemental lining on the inside of the curtain. This lining can be multifunctional so it’s best to consider what you want to achieve with your curtains.
Sometimes the lining is simply for decoration, giving the curtain a bit of depth and extra weight, perhaps offering a splash of color to offset the primary color of the curtain.
More often than not, they are often designed to be noise canceling, heat-insulating, or fully light-blocking, among other things. If for example, you’re planning your living room to also be a fully-functional home entertainment center, 100% blackout – lined curtains would be your best bet.
