     Even if nowadays people rarely use curtains in their rooms, considering them “unfashionable”, many of them can not imagine their interior without them. And I'm one of those people. My entire house is equipped with curtains. Although they are very simple and allow more than just personalized styles; they also protect the interiors from heat loss during the winter and help the room stay cooler during summer. Besides this, thank to curtains furniture is protected from direct sunlight and privacy is insured all the time.
