Instead of having the sheer on the back & the drapes on the front, we now often make the reverse & have the lining on the back track & the sheer curtain on the front track.
It still gives the fantastic function of being able to block all the light out when both layers closed or just have the sheer across which provides daytime privacy and cuts the glare & heat.
So many gorgeous coloured, textured & patterned sheers & also the hard to beat plain white sheers.
But still popular too is the single layer, neutrals are the most popular colour as the saying goes ‘keep your large items neutral & inject colour with your smaller pieces like cushions, vases and art works.’
Darker neutrals are a way of still playing it safe but giving a room a sense of substance & beauty….as long as you have enough light to get away with darker curtains they do look so stunning.
I have seen the same unit configuration on different levels decorated very white then upstairs very dark, they are all beautiful in their own way, it comes back to personal taste (and how much you like or dislike cleaning : ))
The new generation lining is call tripe weave, its so much better than the old coated linings.
As everyone has experienced, the first thing to fail with curtains is the marriage between the fabric and the coating.
Resulting in light filtering through the curtains looking atrocious.
Triple weave on the other hand is made by weaving a black thread between the front and the back thread, the black creates the block out effect without coating the fabric.
The result is a fabric that drapes beautifully and being 100% polyester, its washable & doesn’t shrink.
Just about all fabrics used for the hotel industry further North are now triple weave curtain fabric or lined in triple weave as mould has become such a health issue and the curtains must be launderable.
The options for what the curtains hang on are: an ordinary track or a decorative track.

Both of these options need to be able to stand up to our salt air conditions and are powered coated aluminium, we also use stainless steel screws as the others will rust and very quickly.
If you have square set ceilings, ceiling fixed styline tracks looks fantastic as it gives the room height and being white, just blend into the ceiling. Below at Beach on Sixth, Maroochydore.
If the curtains are face fixed (fixed to a vertical wall) a decorative track (versatrak) looks lovely as the brackets are much nicer to look at than the face fitted ordinary track brackets, in the olds days we would to make valances and such to conceal the ugly brackets however the versatrak brackets are very attractive and the curtain sits just below the track rod.
