Fabric Plus offers a variety of blackout curtain selections, where are some advantages and benefits of using blackout curtains in Thailand.
Top 3 Benefits of Using Blackout Curtains in Bangkok
Living in Bangkok means living with the heat and the sun light. Every time you step out of your house it is an instant combat against the Bangkok heat. A short five minute walk equals drenching perspiration. The first thing anybody wants after returning home is a refreshing shower and a comfy chair to sit and relax in a cool, comfortable setting, away from all the heat and sun radiation. This is where blackout curtains come in. The primary purpose of installing blackout curtains is to help keep your home cool and maintain the indoor temperature from heating up. They act as the dual-function insulation device keeping the outside heat from entering in, and preventing the cool A/C air currents from escaping into the atmosphere outside.
When you are living indoors, normal curtains could not help maintain the cold air currents from your A/C from diffusing outside. Normal curtains do not have that tightly knitted black lining materials that blackout curtains have. However, please make sure that the blackout curtains are of a good and thick variety. Many curtains are sold under the name "blackout curtains" however like most products, they come in a variety of qualities and thicknesses. The thin varieties would not be able to block out the sun light as well as the thick varieties, so the name "blackout curtains" is not the 'be all and end all' of curtains. They only indicate that some blackout linings have been stitched within the curtain fabrics. To get the really high quality curtains, you have to make sure to touch and feel the fabric textures and test out the fabric against the light to measure the translucency of the curtains. Blackout curtains do not block out sun light 100%, some thin varieties only block out 60-70% of the light, the thicker varieties can block out more. To make sure you get a 100% sun light blocking quality, you could request for a silver black out lining to be added to your curtains. This way you would be sure that no light or heat is passing through your curtains during the afternoon heat.
Blackout curtains simply look awesome. They come in a variety of colors and designs. Some fabric designs have flowery patterns while others have more modern, simple patterns. A great number of black out curtains are made in simple, no design colors for customers who prefer curtains that way. I personally like some simple but nice looking patterns on my curtains. Some curtains look great with the diamond patterns while others look better on modern rectangle patterns.
Fabric Plus sells curtain fabrics and materials in wholesale prices. We offer many ranges of blackout curtain fabrics with many designs and colors. Our black-out featured curtain textiles range from the colorful, flowery patterns to the simple, plain colors. We offer the 2.80 meter width curtain materials so that the curtain fabrics can be stitched into seamless, better looking curtains. The 2.80 meter curtains make stitching curtains easier as you would have to attach the fabrics together piece by piece, the width is usually used as the height of the made-to-measure curtains, and you would only need to buy the amount according to the width of your windows.
We also sell many kinds of two-tone modern curtain fabrics.
Why are Two Tone Curtains Popular in Thailand?
Thai culture encompasses many aspects of life such as lifestyle, music, architecture, and even interior design. In Thailand, the trends of home decor and interior design have moved towards a more modern style which includes using curtains and furniture that have simple, basic colors and shapes. The popular curtains used are pleated curtains (three pinch pleated curtains) and the grommet curtains (eyelet curtains). Many also use simple Roman curtains for small or narrow windows and doors. The colors of curtains in modern designed homes are base colors like white, cream, earth tone colors, and other simple shades. The purpose for using these curtains are for mostly for function as Thailand is a hot tropical country with high levels of heat and humidity. In the contemporary concept, curtains are not supposed to be fancy or used for coloring the interiors of homes, instead they are used primarilty as a sun light and radiation blocking device.
Nevertheless, many residents living in Thailand still prefer to use curtains in the traditional concept, which is to give color and atmosphere to homes. Curtains are essentially the face of the house interior, their palette and style are highly influential towards the appearance of the home. Instead of giving in to the modern style of trying to blend the curtains in with the walls and window so that they are barely noticeable, they place a high emphasis on the importance of colors and layers in window treatments. Using sheers to add softness to the room atmosphere, using tab top curtains or grommet curtains to add fun and energy to the room, or simply using colors that are cool and calming to generate a peaceful, relaxing ambience are some examples of using curtains in the traditional concept.
Some people find choosing a single color for curtains to be a difficult task, as one color is limited in generating a lively, vibrant ambience to a home. Instead they prefer multi-colored curtains or the more common design of "two tone" colors which combines the dynamic chemistry between two palettes to produce a radiant, polychromatic appearance. Two tone curtains are popular as they are generally more vibrant and less restricted than standard, single color curtains. The colors can be used to mix and match in a variety of ways to recreate the room atmosphere in the the desired effect. Examples of a two tone curtain palette include the colors brown and grey, red and gold, black and white, blue and silver, red and silver etc. These colors exude mood and character in their own way, however when combined with other colors, their qualities may complement to produce an aura that is aimed towards a specific effect such as royalty, romance, nature, country, fun, exoticism, tranquility, cute and sweet etc. Two tone curtains are highly effective ambience generators and they are especially useful when one single color is not enough to achieve the desired effect.
Fabric Plus is a wholesaler and retailer of many varieties of two tone color curtains. We offer curtains with different designs and styles that are characteristic and vibrant. We also offer the contemporary concept curtains with simple, no pattern colors such as earth tone colors and other base colors for customers who live in modern designed homes.

Picking Out the Best Curtain Fabrics for Your Home
Modern trends are moving towards do-it-yourself models of living. Do-it-yourself bags, furniture, clothes, and even curtains have become the norm. Instead of buying the curtains ready made or having them stitched by professional tailors, many people choose to buy curtain fabrics and make the curtains themselves. There are many good reasons for why do-it-yourself options are great especially in the case of curtains. Curtain fabric shops have a great variety of fabrics to choose from, and the only common thing is all of them could be used to make curtains, because in reality they come in all kinds of materials and textures.
Curtain fabrics come in all kinds and forms; they vary in features, weight, transparency, textures, and designs. The only thing they seem to share in common is that one could stitch curtains out of them and hang them over a window. The most convincing argument to go for do-it-yourself curtains is that you would get so many choices to make when selecting the fabric. Of course, the fact that you would choose to make do-it-yourself curtains in the first place is that you get the option to personalize the style that you wish your curtains to have. You can even choose multiple textures and designs for the same curtains and get really creative.
When picking out the textiles at the curtain store, you have to consider several factors in deciding which ones fit most to your concept.The color and designs are only the beginning, you would have to touch the fabrics and get a feel of their textures. You also have to decide how hard or soft you want your curtains to feel, whether you want the fabrics to be heavy or light, rough or smooth etc. All of these factors affect how they drape over the windows in your home.
In general, the curtain fabric materials that make the best finished products are the ones with the most balanced thread count, not too few that the curtains are not blocking out light effectively, and not too many that they lose their breath-ability function. The thread count in fabrics determine how durable they are as well as how heavy they are. Heavier curtains tend to drape better than the lighter ones composed of fabrics with lower thread count.
Great curtain fabrics are the satins, jacquards, linens, cotton, velvet etc. The satin jacquard variety is made from polyester which does not tend to hold on to dust, making them a good option for those would like the house cleaning to be easy. The velvet and cotton varieties tend to hold on to more dust, however they are also great options as well despite being more difficult to clean. The velvet fabric has a soft feel, and they exude an elegant appearance that symbolizes royalty. If you are hoping to give your home a more regal look, you could always go for velvet curtain fabrics. In Thailand, the silk curtain fabrics are popular as they are smooth and they also shine better than several other types curtain fabrics.
The curtain fabrics also have different functional features, some has a shiny texture and protects against ultraviolet radiation, while others may also share the UV protection layer but possesses a rugged texture. Even UV blocking curtains come in a variety of fabrics. Some curtain fabrics are shiny on one side while has a solid, non-shiny texture on the other, some fabrics are shiny on both sides, while others are not shiny on either side. Some fabrics have a smooth surface on one side and a rough exterior on the other etc. The thickness and weight of fabrics as well as its color determines how well they block out light. The UV protecting curtains are not necessarily completely light blocking as well, although they are still called "blackout curtains" in Thailand. Some curtain fabric shops refer to UV protecting curtain fabrics as "dim-outs" instead to make a distinct differentiation between the light blocking fabrics and the UV blocking ones.
The darker color tones also help the fabrics to block out light better than the lighter color tones, even for the same type of curtain fabric. It is a good choice to go for the lighter colors when you want your homes to appear more spacious and voluminous, while it is better to choose the darker colors if you prefer to block out more sunlight.
The styles of curtains that you can make with "do-it-yourself" tailoring is numerous and infinite depending on your creativity. You could make some really exquisite curtain styles with laces, rings, and linings, and you also get to design the curtain headings and sheers. You could cut up different curtain fabrics and sew them together and create your own designs. The sky is the limit.

Using Blackout Curtains in Bangkok
Here is everything you need to know before switching from the existing curtains in your home to the modern ultraviolet protecting blackout curtains.
Why do most of us opt for blackout curtains in the first place?
The primary purposes of blackout curtains are to block out sun light and heat radiation, and to maintain privacy while staying at home. Too much sun light coming through the windows can make your home furniture hot and can make you feel uncomfortable when using them for activities like working on a computer or watching the television. Not only does the sunlight make your chairs and tables hot, they also create glares in the computer and TV screens. It is therefore not a surprise that many people living in Bangkok choose to furnish their windows with high quality blackout curtains as they want the best protection from the sun rays and increased comfort living inside their homes. The sun light not only produces excessive heat and light, it also produces ultraviolet radiation which can be a detriment to the furniture and interior of your home as the sun rays pass through the windows during the hot afternoons.
Blackout curtains have improved throughout the years, from the plastic-texture polyester to a softer, more pliable texture that is comfortable to touch and is also less static-prone. With the modern technology enhancing curtain fabrics' features, complete UV protection with the new textures has now become the norm in Bangkok. Many homeowners are changing their curtains and switching to use UV and light blocking curtains, also known as blackout curtains, as these types work better in hotter climates than the traditional, non UV-blocking ones. They last longer and they are more energy saving as they block out the heat more effectively thereby reducing your air conditioning needs.
Some people in Bangkok are still attached to their current curtains but this is not a problem as well because you can convert them into blackout curtains by adding a UV protecting lining at the back. The blackout linings are normally used when homeowners decide to keep the existing curtains however for those who would like to change theirs, the option to buy standard curtains added with blackout lining would be more costly as the stitching costs of blackout linings are double that of the in-built blackout curtains.
In both cases however, the benefits are the same as they preserve the condition of your interior furnishings and reduce the energy costs of cooling your home. The in-built UV blocking curtains are the more cost-effective solution of reducing solar heat and radiation as the tailoring cost is lower and it is no wonder that they are extremely popular among the people living here.
There are other benefits of switching to blackout curtains than reducing sun glares, heat, and radiation into your homes. The blackout curtains are more multi-layered than their traditional counterparts and they keep out the noise better. Noise disturbance reduces the comfort of living in your homes as you would get less brain rest during rest hours, and less concentration during work hours or even watching the TV can be less fun with excessive noise in the background. It is well-documented among the science community that noise pollution can lead to many health problems such as fatigue, anxiety, and restlessness etc.
Some of the blackout curtains are also easy to take care of as they do not hold on to dust so you wouldn't have to constantly vacuum them. At Fabric Plus, we have several designs of blackout curtain fabrics that control airborne dust and these ones are better for your health as they wouldn't release a lot of dust when you are cleaning your home.
Another factor that encourages people living in Bangkok to switch to blackout curtains is that they simply look great. Many of the blackout curtains have gorgeous designs and they can give any home an added element of elegance and glamour. The curtain fabric is of higher quality and its texture boosts the sharpness of colors and designs, creating more appeal than the traditional curtains. They are not only used for homes and offices, they are always used at the work places like media rooms and photography studios as they serve the purpose of complete light and shadow control.
Blackout curtains come in all shapes and kinds, from the extremely professional, no-design look to the flowery, design filled kinds. They can also be used for all kinds of curtain styles from the classic triple pleated style, grommet tops to the modern eyelet models. The blackout fabric is remarkably versatile as technology in this fabric industry has come a long way.
