Linen curtains: Blended or Pure linen what to choose?

 How to select Linen Curtains

Curtains are must and are essential in every home/business setup. Ever fell in love with a curtain style and tried to emulate the same and ended up feeling disappointed. You chose the same style, but it missed the beat.

Why? There is just one thing to understand here. Things that work at one place might not work at another place for that one need a professional understanding or avail pro level opinion from interior decorators or online décor specialists available.

Coming to styling, one important decision you need to make is the choice of fabric. If you are going for linen curtains, it is imperative that you read the fine print about the percentage of linen used. Pure Linen curtains are not available everywhere. Blended fabrics are available which are branded as linen comes cheap, but they have 20%-30% of linen and the rest of it is either cotton or even worse polyester and similar fabrics.

We are sharing 2 links below that’ll help you understand about the difference between pure linen and blended linen.

White Linna Pure Linen Curtains

This is 100% linen and as you would see the cost is a bit on the higher side when compared to other linen curtains available(check the second link). This offers a 40% shading rate and comes in 2 colour options light grey and pure white.

Alisa Grey Curtains

The difference in price made a difference in fabric. This blended fabric has 80% polyester and 20% linen. They cost less and the shading rate is 50% which is better than standard linen curtains.

 Grey Linen Curtains

If you compare the two, you will see there is a difference of almost 75%. Having said that, there wouldn’t be a great difference between the overall look and feel of the curtains.

Linen is luxury and who doesn’t like luxury and comfort in one go. These linen curtains can be turned into beautiful looking thermal curtains. When used as thermal curtains, they have a 100% shade rate and act as a good insulator.
