Why do we need curtains in our room?
First reason is for our safety. Curtains help to cover the windows and ensure the the room is safe from outsiders’ view.It is all about privacy. We doesn’t want our neighbor to see what we do in the room especially in Malaysia, the houses are side by side and very near. Who knows we might have stalker around us. wooo~spooky.
Second reason is our health. Living in heart of Kuala Lumpur or in Klang area is quite challenging. The busy cities are full of dusts, cars are everywhere, constructions are uncountable. Therefore, curtains are needed to absorb sounds and prevent dusts from outside into the room. This could helps to
Third reason is to make the room looks attractive and complement with the ambiance and surrounding. At least curtains could splash some colors in the plain room.
Forth reason is to control amount of natural lighting. Without curtains, the sunlight might makes your room’ temperature high and its so annoying especially when you are planning to get long rest or long sleep suddenly the light spot into you. Oh dear! its happened to me several times!
Fifth Reason is to synchronize or hide UNEVEN level/ size windows. Some houses the windows are not even; higher than another or they are located side by side but one is smaller than another one. Hence, curtains are the savior!
New piece of sheet now introduced as “black out” which will help to cover the shadows in the room. Previously, we only know: Curtains and sheers (the day time sheer curtains) but now, there’s a new piece called “black out”. woo hoo! This is to ensure there will be no lights or see through shadows on the main curtains.
TIPS & NEW THINGS I’VE LEARNT
1) For the curtains, please keep them simple, elegant, exclusive, clean, tidy and neat. Does not choose any colors or any patterns that too crowded/ in Bahasa we called caca-marba
2) New exciting thing I know, previously we have “scallops” to decorate the upper part of windows. Now, a new innovative product come out with a name of pelmet. See the picture below then you know how beautiful pelmet is.
