Lining curtains is an important step in customizing your curtains. A curtain liner can keep your home warmer during the winter months and meet your different needs for sun lighting and privacy. Besides, curtain liners can make the curtain more durable and protect the outer fabric from sun damage and the color of the fabric can last longer.
The curtain liner material for home usually made from 100% cotton, polyester, or a combination of the two. Curtain liners for use in the home should have a good performance on repelling water, resist stains, provide insulation, and prevent ultraviolet rays from entering the home. If you need custom-made curtains for a commercial business, like the restaurant and office, the liner material should have been treated with fire retardant to meet fire codes.
