The photos on this page show a small selection of real curtain, blind and shutter installations carried out by Changing Curtains. These are not studio mock-ups with perfect lighting and colour balance and windows that no longer open, what we are trying to show is a variety of different practical, workable solutions to various issues such as privacy, draughts, glare and darkness, what is practical, what meets your design criteria for your home, plus the visual and acoustic impact of window treatments. If you see anything of interest click on the photo to go to bigger and possibly more pictures of that installation
