Custom drapery and blinds - Window coverings.
With the exception of sheers, lining your drapery gives a professional look. With the large variety of linings available at Panoramic Shades you ask which lining should I use? Lining also makes a curtain look more attractive from the outside while protecting the drapes from sun damage.
Linings offer installation and privacy especially in bedrooms. Blackout lining is my preferred choice at Panoramic Shades, not only does blackout lining provide privacy it also keeps the colour of the drape consistent. For example, take a look at a drape hanging partially on the window and partially on the wall. See the colour difference if lined with regular lining. Now line the same drape with blackout lining and the colour is consistent both on the window and wall because no light is filtering through. The sun is able to penetrate through regular lining damaging your drapery. Blackout lining will protect your drapery and keep the colour consistent no matter how much light or sun is outside. Thermal linings another choice, help keep rooms cool in the summer and warm in the winter, keeping your energy bills lower. At Panoramic Shades we always line our drapery with quality linings!
