    Default Lace on windows...

    I absolutely HATE it, our rental has it on nearly all windows and it makes me feel like an 80 year old with a perm just looking at it.

    Do you like it?? When we moved in the landlord was boasting about how they had just purchased all new lace, why!?

    Hate it too - our house had lace curtains things with floral drapes over the top. I pulled it all down and had no window coverings for 8mths while I saved for blinds.

    I hate lace as well! I do have voile curtains to allow privacy with the windows open, but they are plain - no laceyness and they are bright colours in the kids rooms.

    My mum loves her window doileys. I think my hate for them bred from there!

    I think it depends on the styleof the house and furnishings. Our rental is renovated, with all wood floors. We have a 9 piece rustic style dining setting. DS has all wood in his room - wood entertainment unit, tall boy, toy box etc. In our room we have a 3 poster with all wood. So it suits the style of our house. I also find it's good for privacy while still letting the light in (we have a 2nd layer of curtains or blinds)

    I never even thought of taking it off, we have thick curtains behind it as well but I agree delirium it is good for privacy.

    I too can't stand lace curtains. They hold so much dust! My parents have lace blinds though which look really nice. It suits the style of house though.
    I don't mind a plain sheer curtain though. Some have some nice modern patterns.

    I hate them. And I hate when you go past houses and see them hanging but they're browning and all tattered! Yuk!
