Colors and Fabrics, once you decide whether you want curtains or drapes, you need to consider fabrics and colors. If you are choosing from among ready‐made products, your choices will be more limited than if you go custom, where the world is your oyster as far as the available fabric range is concerned. With regard to colors, most decorators will advise that you stick to neutrals if budget is a concern or if you plan to keep the same curtains or drapes for a longer period of time. This will allow you to freshen up the look of a room’s décor and not be limited by the color of your window treatment. It’s also a more budget‐conscious choice for expensive custom draperies that are intended to last a long time. Finally, you the space gets a great deal of sunlight, fading of bright colors is a concern that can limit the lifespan of any types of curtains.
Time‐travelling back a few years, the best option for doors between house and garden were central‐opening double doors (French doors) which are still popular today. Fifty‐ish years ago, sliding patio doors enabled us to embrace more light in the home. Typically, these comprised two panes of glass that could slide left or right within side‐by‐side parallel grooves so that, when closed, natural light and a good view could be enjoyed. To open, one door would slide to overlap with the other door so that the total width of the opening was similar to that of French doors. Another down‐side of sliding doors is that they all too often became 'sticking' doors which became worse with the introduction of double glazing, doubling the weight of the doors and reducing the glass to frame ratio.
