My choice depends on teh room in question. In the office I prefer to have vertical blinds. In my sitting room or the drawing room or the lounge, i prefer to have light drapes which flutter in teh breeze. For my bedroom i prefer to have heavy curtains, as I do not want anyone from outside peeping in. What about you? what sort of curtains do you prefer?

I always put a light curtains in my house because we are here in a tropical country and it will be so hot inside our house if i hang a heavy one on it. plus the fact that the sunlight will not pass through a heavy curtain also the wind

I do using light curtains for the living rooms only for the fresh air. I know how hot the tropical contries are, specially Philippines. But heavy curtains inside the bedroom as we have the aircon and electric fan inside. Happy posting.

Like you, it depends on the room. Kitchen-light curtains, living rooms & den I like horizontal or vertical blinds with light drapes or even just toppers. In the bedrooms I have a full shade and/or heavy drapes.

Oh just like you it depends upon the room. I really like pastel colored curtains for our living room and I also want it in light drapes. This reminds me of buying more curtains for our house . I don't have enough Haha. As for our bedroom as much as possible we want it dim but cozy. Blue or lavender colored heavy curtains will do. We just used blinds for small windows.

I'd really prefer blinds but for now I'm okay with heavy curtains since it's still helpful anyway. The only disadvantage of using blinds is that it's hard to clean. Unlike curtains made from cloth, you can just replace it with a new one and wash the previous one.

I am always using heavy and dark curtains in our bedroom to avoid other peoples seeing us inside of what are we doing there. Light curtains for our living rooms just right for the fresh air and sunlight to come in. I never yet tried using blinds curtains. Happy posting.

I only care about my bedroom so I´ll say I prefer heavy, dark curtains that does not permit light to penetrate it. Yeah, I like the dark very much, especially when I´m sleeping.
