Ease of installation and costsCurtains: Easy, can be inexpensiveFabrics can be fashioned without much hassle to make modish curtains. You can buy ready-made curtain fabrics or customise them according to your design requirements. With no complex fittings and hardware, installing curtains can be taken up as a DIY job as well. Some automated kinds of bigger sizes do need professional help, though.Curtains are comparatively cheaper than plastic or wood-based window treatments. Installation costs are much lower as well.Blinds: Need extra effort for installation, high on costThe various parts of the blinds (fabric or material, cords, headrail, and so on) need to be customised separately for each window size. Unlike curtains, the installation and repair of the various parts require skilled labour, which comes with extra costs.
The formal living room is a dramatic space, complete with warm veneer panels and long beige-toned drapes, with lots of natural light from the full-length windows that replace two walls. The Chesterfield sofa adds to the regal look of the drawing room, while a pop of colour is introduced through an olive-green chair. The two clusters of seating are separated using a console table with a raised laser-cut metal rim round the edges.
