Tips for Screening Out Nosy Neighbours without Becoming a Curtain Twitcher
As more and more research begins to highlight the detrimental effects of rising pollution levels in our cities, textile producers are going to work to develop some clever ways to make window coverings work even harder.
Currently, interiors specialists are working on the idea of using nano technology to come up with an amazing solution to the problem of dirty air – pollution neutralising textiles!
The idea is to develop specially treated fabrics that can be used to make smart curtains and blinds that can actually stop pollution from entering your home through open windows.
So how is this possible?
Well, essentially, fabrics would be coated in a special photoactive chemical that would react when in the presence of light to give off free radicals that would then break down toxins and pollutants in the air, much as they do in some skincare creams.
Far from simply being easy on the eye, or providing us with greater privacy and insulation, this idea could also potentially keep homes safer and more protected in a very significant way.
