Every man, whether he is hairy or not, does not like to keep seeing those few hairs that keep sticking out from his nose or ear. This is why, a nose and ear trimmer would be the perfect gift for him, and he will not have to go through days of sticking out hairs anymore.

Powerbank

Sports Cars Driving Chance

How to Pick the Perfect Curtains

Carmencitta Magazine - Perfect Curtains

When chosen correctly, a good curtain is the main thing that makes a room a whole. Moreover, When it comes to window decorating, you need to take into consideration: color and fabric, length and lining, and custom-made versus off-the-shelf. So, you are lost, and do not know which curtain to choose to which room. This is why, we teamed up with a group of interior designers, and came up with the best ways to help you pick up the perfect curtains.

Semi sheer

When you want to add curtains to a room that is shared by all the members of the family, you do not need privacy. This is why, the room will always need light because the sun light will help in brightening the room. Moreover, semi sheer curtains will be perfect for this case. In fact, the amount of the light you want in, will determine the thickness of the fabric; thick fabric lets in less light than thin one.

Cellular

When it comes to bathrooms, especially those on the first floor, they have small windows, but also need the light to get in. Moreover, bathrooms need a lot of privacy, this is why designers use a hard window treatment called a cellular shade. Referred to as a top-down/bottom-up shade, this shade allows you to walk around without being seen and still lets a lot of light in.

Draperies

Just like bathrooms, bedrooms that are located on the first floor, need more privacy than the one on the second floor. However, both will require natural sun light. In fact, there are those very contemporary draperies that start from the ceiling and end on the floor, they are the most appropriate for bedrooms, because when they are closed, an entire wall of fabric still allows light in. In fact, draperies can be installed on the wall or the ceiling, depending on what suits the room the best.
