Loads have them in my city. I do like them but like the warmth of curtains so wouldn’t get them . Plus they look a nightmare to clean. But I wondered whether all these people who have forked out a grand or two to have their house done will be regretting it In a few years time.
I've got them. I love them, I don't care if they date, they look fab and make a massive difference to the warmth in the room - far better than curtains IMO. They're not difficult to clean as the slats are broad. I dust them with the feather duster supplied for the purpose by the company that installed them, and occasionally wipe with a damp cloth. I certainly clean them more often than I cleaned the curtains .
Of course they will! 20 years ago, net curtains were the norm in most homes - and yet now a house with nets is very likely to belong to an older person and most houses (here in my patch at least) now have plantation shutters instead. They are the new net curtains. I can’t abide either. I think they make a house look like its asleep.
