BENEFITS OF CURTAINS FOR YOUR ACT HOME
Canberra summers can get quite hot, and the winters can be rather chilly. So, a little extra help with insulation from your window coverings won’t go astray. The best curtains are excellent for helping regulate the temperature inside your home. This means savings on your power bill and peace of mind. Curtains prevent external air from entering your home through glass windows and patio doors, making it easier to maintain the internal temperature of your room.
Pairing sheer curtains with blockout curtains also gives you optimal light control, allowing you to let in as little or as much light as you want while providing privacy day and night.
Head into your local ACT Carpet Court showroom and chat with our friendly retailers about the many benefits of curtains for your Canberra home.
CLEANING AND MAINTAINING YOUR CURTAINS
With a little regular maintenance and curtain cleaning, your new curtains will look as fresh as the day they were installed and maintain their functionality over time.
- Dusting: Prevent dust and particles from building up on the fabric by dusting regularly with a duster or vacuum brush in a gentle setting.
- Spot-clean: Sponge out any marks with a damp sponge and a mild detergent diluted in water.
- Washing: We recommend referring to the manufacturer’s guidelines prior to washing your curtains. However, many curtains can be hand-washed or run through a delicate cycle in your washing machine using a mild detergent. Line-dry your curtains or, if it’s a warm day, hang them back up in your windows to dry.
CLASSIC AND MODERN CURTAINS TO MATCH YOUR HOME DÉCOR
Curtains have been a popular window treatment for centuries - and for good reason! Not only do they provide privacy and light control, but they also look great.
Classic styles of curtains such as pinch pleat and pencil pleat have stood the test of time. While new styles have hit the market, such as S-Fold curtains, eyelet curtains, the clever curtain/blind hybrid Veri Shades® and motorised curtains with home automation features, classic styles have retained their appeal with the introduction of modern fabrics.
Carpet Court’s huge range of quality fabrics for sheer curtains and blockout curtains means you’re able to choose a colour and style that suits your home decor, from traditional to contemporary.
THE PURPOSE OF CURTAINS
Aside from elevating your interior spaces, curtains have a few practical purposes:
- Light control
In Australia, curtains are invaluable for protecting our floors and furnishings from UV rays and controlling the amount of light and glare that enters your room. Sheer curtains provide excellent daytime privacy, while blockout curtains and blockout blinds offer nighttime privacy. That’s why combining sheer curtains with blockout curtains or blinds is a popular option for many homeowners.

TYPE OF CURTAINS THAT WORK BEST FOR YOUR LIVING ROOM
Interior designers love to use curtains to soften spaces and filter natural light. A particularly popular style right now is S-Fold curtains. Their lack of embellishment and gentle s-shaped fabric folds make them an excellent option for modern living rooms, bringing a relaxed elegance to your space. They open quietly and effortlessly and are available in a wide range of classic and on-trend colours and fabrics.
