What is the difference between a lined drape and an unlined drape?

The addition of a cloth lining to the back of a drape fabric creates several distinct advantages over an unlined drape. 

For example: 

1) A lined drape has superior insulation value against winter cold and summer heat. It can thereby help reduce your utility costs which is a good thing wherever you live. 

2) Lined drapes also dampen or reduce sound from outside sources. 

3) If privacy is something you value, then you have got to buy lined drape. They offer you complete privacy and comfort. 

4) Because the lining protects the face cloth from damaging sun rot, lined drapes can last 10 to 15 years longer than unlined drapes. 

5) Light reduction – lined drapes greatly reduce the light pouring into your rooms. 

6) Blackout – if you want to darken the room perhaps for sleeping, just add a blackout lining to your drape. 

Unlined drapes are good alternatives when you want the most economical window covering. There are many colors and styles to choose from with unlined fabrics.
