What do we mean by “changes?” What changes is the style of the space depending on time period and owner’s taste. A room’s window covering makeover may get upgraded with different colors, patterns, or textures. Layering is a fun way to make multiple of these upgrades all come together. Another request from many is to add height to a room, essentially making it look bigger. Curtain rods are installed a length above the top of the window to visually elongate the window and its coverings.

This is the clear winner because of the ability to have light but not be blinded by it. There can be sunshine coming into your space but not directly and causing an uncomfortable glare. When the top of the window covering is down it keeps the light pointed to the ceiling and also off your furniture and interior decor. The top down bottom up products also protect the inside from the outside’s scorching temperatures.
