What is Interlining?

What is Interlining?

Interlined blinds and curtains incorporate a layer of fabric sandwiched between the lining and main front fabric of your curtains and blinds. We have the cotton bump which is 100% cotton and has a cotton wool texture, additionally there is the acrylic option which is a lighter polyester alternative.

What are the Benefits of Interlined Curtains and Blinds?

Interlined curtains and blinds are not only for interior decoration, but they also provide essential privacy, warmth and can even help reduce noise pollution. The main benefit of interlining is the fact that it traps the air between the layers of fabric and therefore minimizes heat loss. This would be a useful option for a room that has a draft.

Whilst interlined curtains are a great option for keeping heat in,  they also help give curtains structure and add volume, resulting in an elegant drape and fuller finish. Curtains and blinds made in silk and damasks really benefit from being interlined, not only for support but also to protect the fabrics from the sunlight and will give a luxurious finish.

Keep in mind that interlined curtains and blinds will be considerably heavier and so a strong enough pole or track will need to be fitted.

What is Thermal Lining?

Some fabrics such as a light cotton or linen require a little more structure and thermal lining can achieve this. Thermal lining will help to create an opaque finish and add body that may be needed on a lightweight fabric. This added thickness is perfect for thermal lined blinds and does a wonderful job at keeping light out. We have thermal lining natural and white colour to suit your interior and chosen fabric.

What are the benefits of Thermal Lining?

If you have a cold room, thermal lined blinds and curtains can help insulate from heat loss. The lining is an energy efficient option as this lining prevents the air from entering or leaving the room and therefore reduces the amount of heat needed to heat the room. The thermal lining helps regulate the temperature by keeping the room cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.

Thermal lining will also help block sunlight exposure coming through the window that may affect the curtain fabric and furniture within the room. Adding a thermal lining will increase the lifespan of the curtains and create a space that you can enjoy comfortably.
