Korean Curtains and Blinds

Initially, we would like to selected curtains and blinds based on the colors for the rooms and matching it with the designs. Not to mentioned that they'll accompany us for shopping, Sky Creation kept us waiting for the 3D drawings for 5 weeks and came out not what we wanted. We assumed that they won't waste the time knowing that we'd paid deposits and they won't earn commission from the suppliers.

So, we went to Wink Curtains to select the designs we like. They'd already took the measurements one month ago. They were quite surprised as we still haven't received the 3D, because the sales guy went to our house on the same day that our ID came to take measurements too.

Anyway, they managed to expedite our order done within 2 weeks and had the curtain and blinds installed on the day we move in. Phew... we almost had to stay in the aquarium with no privacy as people could see clearly our house through the glass windows.

We went to EXPO for Furniture Fair and something interesting caught our eyes hen the sales guy introduced us Unislat Korean Curtain.

 Impressive and smartly combining of day and night curtains into a piece of fabric
where you can easily adjustable amount of light streaming into the room.

It helps to circulate the air in the room and filter out harsh
light and heat while leaving the windows open.

Love the way I can walk pass through every single panel
of each fabric without the need to open the curtain.

With variety of choices, you can mix and match with  
different patterns of fabric or colors.

 We selected Arch pattern with combination colors of
 Charcoal - Coffee - Charcoal.

Soft and light material and make the room looks airy.
It's also coated with anti-pollutant to prevent dust and dirt.

The sales guy suggested us to store the curtain together at one side, 
instead of separated them at both sides. 

Therefore you can see the combination colors of Charcoal - Coffee - Charcoal and not only Charcoal and Coffee. As we planned to do the cabinet on the left wall, we draw the curtain to the right wall. Mostly the curtain position is like the above photo which covering 1/4 of the windows.
For Master bedroom, we prefer to use Roman Blinds like our previous house.

This Roman Roller Blinds is way more advance. It's like a big piece of canvas without seeing the partitions using the roller. The roller mechanism is made in Germany which  easier and smooth to pull out without need to use much strength.

Unlike normal fabric, they use something like faux leather which is more stylish
and able to screen out 99% of light. Total privacy as nobody can see through it.

Korean Blinds for my daughter's room.

My daughter like purple color, so we got her this new design
Pleated design (CB951 Purple) for her room.

There are few new collections of Korean blinds, which come with more colors.
This blind has 3 shades of blue instead just one color and mesh.

 Korean Blinds - 3D Nature (CB457 Blue).
Pleated blind and Unislat curtain same price, and this nature blind is cheaper. Frankly speaking, I prefer this one than pleated blind. The colors look nicer from the outside, whereas pleated blind not so obvious.

But we had a small problem with the roller, the installer guy told us that the blind is too heavy for such a big window. He said it's better to have 2 rollers and make a small roller for the window that can be opened. It's too late as the sales guy who should have experience said it's alright to just have one roller in this room.

Total cost for installing curtains and blinds: $3,300
