So where to begin with the first blog of the year? I took inspiration from our shop window this week. In previous blogs we've looked at why you should line your curtains , what kinds of curtain linings are out there and how to line your curtains.
Lately we've been focusing on blackout lining. Check out these examples of regular curtain lining and blackout lining.

As you will have noticed you can still clearly see the pattern of the curtain with the regular lining clearly through the reverse side of the curtain. The blackout lining however totally blocks everything out. So what are the advantages to blackout lining?
1) If you have children they may stay in bed a little longer giving you the lay in you deserve.
2) Blackout Lining reflects heat as well as light helping you reduce your fuel bills.
3) Blackout lining is slightly heavier than ordinary lining and helps your curtains hang straight making your curtains look even better!
4) Blackout Lining is durable. With proper care you wouldn't need to change your curtains for many years to come.
So if you ever visit us and talk about curtains you hopefully will understand our love for blackout lining
Take care and I promise not to leave it so long before the next update.
