The Pros and Cons of Living Curtains

For some people who really like to be creative with their homes and would like a timeless feel, living, green curtains are the way to go. Yes, you can boost the look of your home not just with customized replacement windows, but also with a plant curtain that’s both stylish and environmentally friendly.

The Pros and Cons of Living Curtains

Read on as we discuss the pros and cons of using living curtains to provide privacy and protection from the sun. 

The Pros

A curtain of plants provides a view of greenery that is visible from every part of the home, in addition to preventing passersby and strangers from looking into your interior. Even a simple curtain as an indoor hanging herb garden or a whole, large plant curtain can act as an environmental diffuser, can filter direct sunlight and can heighten privacy.

You can be creative and place the plants with enough space between them to provide adequate lighting or a nice view. 

The Cons

What could be a more clever way of growing more food, or even flowers, at home with less effort? And yet, with all the advantages and benefits of a living, green curtain in your home, there are still the negatives. Like all things, there are disadvantages, like maintenance.

Of course, like all plants, these curtains need the proper amount of water, soil and sunlight to sustain themselves. Trimming is another factor to preserve a plant curtain’s elegance and beauty. Overgrown plants will always stand out like a sore thumb.

Of course, having creative, quality curtains is just one step. You’ll also need the best windows for your home installed by the top window replacement contractor in the state.
