Everybody understands the importance of a designer window drapery. Draperies do serve a purpose. They give you privacy. They can eliminate a light issue. They can even serve as insulation against the elements of the weather, but what about the lining? Ignored and often misunderstood, the lining is often forgotten. Whether privacy or light is the purpose for the designer drapes make sure your draperies have standard or even black out lining. Up to 50% of all conventional heat loss in a room can be saved through the use of a nice heavy, lined pair of draperies. The addition of a cloth lining to the back other fabric creates many distinctive advantages over unlined draperies. Lined draperies have superior insulation value against winter cold and summer heat. It can thereby help reduce your utility costs which is a good thing wherever you live. They also dampen or reduce sound from outside sources and offer you complete privacy and comfort. Because the lining protects the face cloth from damaging sun rot, lined draperies can last 10 to 15 years longer than unlined. Lined draperies greatly reduce the light pouring into your rooms. If you want to darken the room, just add a “blackout” lining to your drapery. Black out lining is a thermal foam-type lining that will keep out hot damaging sun and the heat on a cold winter’s night in the room where it belongs. Draperies do hang best with lots of body and shape when lined with either product.
