Not putting the netting back on though. Don't like netting I think it makes it look scruffy.


But voiles are ok as long as they are nice and crisp and clean!!

Default blinds or curtains

I voted "dunno" we changed to blinds at the end of last season, they look smashing but I think I miss the curtains, so they may have to go back up so that we have both. Daren't tell hubby though so maybe not!!

We have cream blackout blinds in the 3 bedrooms with curtains and a normal roller in the bathroom and toilet. The livingroom and kitchen have curtains although I would like to put blinds up with new curtains eventually. Our vans ARE moneypits!!

I think they are ok in vans (they are good for having a nose at peeps around you, without them seeing you), but I wouldn't have any at home.

Have you washed yours yet, Tia?

I got stick off the other half originally when we took the curtains down but they were an off pinky red colour and didnt do any justice for the looks of the van, also not well lined, once the blinds were fitted a clean new look, which instantly changed mi lasses mind.
A new Dunelm mill store has opened up in morecambe and sell tons of good material, as our van is of cream/white colour on the outside you would of thought the manufacturers would've put custard colour/magnolia colour curtains up. oh well. Just gonna add the curtains to the main front window have roller blinds on 6 other windows.

[FONT="Franklin Gothic Medium"]Hi Yogi
Blinds with curtains do keep out more drafts, I have to be honest, but I just prefer the 'clean lines' of blinds, and I'm not a 'frilly' person, so all the curtains (except in my bedroom) have been removed.
If you have DG it probably wouldn't make any difference./FONT]
