Why using drapery lining is a good idea!

Whether you leave your window treatments unlined or whether you add lining depends on several factors. Unlined treatments offer a lite, breezy look that is popular today. And there are times when it is absolutely the way to go. There are also a lot of benefits to lining window treatments too such as light control, insulating properties, and many others.

  • Light Control: Lining can block out or filter light, allowing you to adjust the ambiance of a room. Blackout lining is particularly effective for bedrooms where you want to minimize incoming light for better sleep.

  • Insulation: It adds an extra layer of insulation to your windows, helping to regulate temperature and reduce energy costs by keeping warmth in during the winter and blocking out heat during the summer.

  • UV Protection: Lining can help protect your furniture, flooring, and artwork from fading due to exposure to sunlight by blocking harmful UV rays.

  • Privacy: Depending on the type of lining used, it can enhance privacy by preventing people from seeing into your home from the outside, especially at night when interior lights are on.
  • Enhanced Appearance: Used alone or with interlining, it can give window treatments a fuller, more luxurious look, adding body and weight to the fabric, and helping curtains and drapes to hang more elegantly.

  • Durability: It can help protect the main fabric of your window treatments from wear and tear, extending their lifespan.

  • Sound Insulation: Thicker linings can also help dampen sound, reducing noise pollution from outside and providing a quieter indoor environment.

  • Versatility: With a wide range of lining materials available, you can choose options that best suit your specific needs, whether it's blackout lining for a bedroom, thermal lining for energy efficiency, or sheer lining for a delicate, diffused light effect.

Overall, lining in window treatments enhances both the aesthetic and functional aspects of your home decor while providing practical benefits for comfort and efficiency.
