no response.

I think one reason for "no response" is that your question about "regular curtains" is too vague to answer. "Regular curtains" - whatever that means in this context - can be made of so many different fabrics, of different weight, of different textures and of different light-blocking abilities that you would have to specify what materials you are talking about and then consider the practicality of each in your situation.

no response.


You should look for curtains of a heavier weight snd a tight weave; they will not be light-blocking like black out curtains but will provide privacy. Avoid weaves labeled as semi-sheer.

I'm remodeling my house and am about to finish renovations on a room that I want to use as an event piano studio. The walls are painted, but there isn't much in the way of curtains (though two windows look out onto trees) or other window treatments (the ceiling is vaulted). I was planning to buy curtains with blackout curtains, but I'm open to other suggestions! I found an interesting site for me where I saw some interesting variants of curtains, I'll share with you! https://www.fabrichouse.com.au/product-tag/curtains/ When it comes to curtains and other window treatments, there are no hard and fast rules. It really depends on your personal preference and the look you are going for in your home. If you are looking for a more polished and finished look, curtains may be the way to go. If you are looking for a more casual and relaxed vibe, curtains with blackout curtains may be a good choice for you. Curtains come in a variety of styles and fabrics, so there is truly a perfect curtains or curtains that will fit into your home d├ęcor. Those looking to add curtains to their piano room should consider curtain panels , which are often more sophisticated than curtains alone. For example, curtains with curtains curtains add a luxurious touch to any room. They are also a great way to accent curtains that have an already busy or complex design.
