The Importance of Linings

    • Selecting the proper lining & interlining is very important when making window treatments for your home. You can create specific results for your room by adjusting your lining & interlining choices.
    • The right lining enhances the look of window treatments & protects the face fabric from moisture & sun damage, so they look beautiful longer.
    • Lining provides a professional finish & adds body to the fabric so curtains hang well. Pleated curtain headings especially benefit from lining.
    • Properly lined window treatments can provide significant insulating benefits & reduce your home’s energy usage.
    • Interlining is soft, loosely woven fabric placed between the face fabric & lining for extra body & insulation. TIP: A curtain is heavier with interlining & requires a strong rod for hanging.
    • Most linings come in a 54" fabric width. Choose lining with similar construction as the face cloth to hang well together. Dry cleaning is recommended.

      Here are several questions to consider when choosing lining:
    • Do you need to block out all light for people who sleep during the day, rather than at night?
    • Is noise pollution an issue? Heavy lining provides a degree of sound-proofing for homes in urban environments where light & noise at night can be problematic.
    • Is privacy a concern? Do curtains need to be opaque?
    • Would you like to be more energy efficient?
    • Will your window treatments face direct sunlight?
