Moreover the way and the type of curtains we use also affect light to come through the windows so we must be careful while selecting both of them. Sheer drapes are one such example which let light to pass through them but don't allow air to come through them. When we know good amount of light comes through window and we actually need it then we must use sheer drapes as they allow light to come.

Though Silky curtains are also used and looks good but its better not use them as they may be expensive and may not be airy and fades up easily with time which look ugly after a period of time. Its better to use silk as pillow covers only.
