  • Answering Some Questions You Might Have About Home Carpet Cleaning

  • Maintaining Light Control Without Curtains

    Although they are a practical means of controlling the light flow into your home, curtains are not exactly original choices for your windows. They are seen in nearly all Australian homes and can be a bit boring, no matter what the rest of your interior decoration looks like. Furthermore, drawing curtains means only being able to control the amount of light that enters your home with a horizontal adjustment. If the sun is low or high in the sky, then your curtains don't really offer a lot of help.

  • About Me

    Upgrading our curtains

    We have just bought a new house, and the guy who lived here before us smoked in the house for close to 40 years.

This blog explains some different stylish options for window coverings for your home, including curtains and blinds.
