If you're thinking about doing some renovations around the house, but are a bit strapped for cash with the end of financial year approaching, why not consider installing some new curtains.
Curtains frame a room and can make a huge difference to the style and feel of a home without breaking the bank. They also filter light into a room and depending on whether you want to maximise or minimise this, you will need to put some thought into your DIY curtain project.
Whether you are interested in the just the pure aesthetics of curtains or their functional ability, there is something to suit everyone's tastes.
Blinds come in a wide variety of styles, from venetian to wooden, and instantly give a room a modern look. They also allow you to adjust the amount of light you want in a room, appealing to both those looking for an attractive and practical option.
Curtains and drapes are more suitable for those looking for a specific style - available in thousands of patterns and colours, drapes can complete a room.
Blackout curtains are designed to prevent almost all light from entering a room - more than 90 per cent can be blocked out. These are also energy efficient and can even assist in reducing outside noise - as well as preventing warm air from escaping during the winter months.
When hanging your curtains or blinds, you will need to use equipment to reach the top of the window space - ladder and trestles available from your local Kennards Hire can assist with this.
