Did you come across a rain curtain before and just said “Wow! That’s beautiful”. These Rain curtains have made their first appearance in big landscaping and architectural projects. Rain curtains, initially, were more artistic than functional but these days, homeowners and interior designers are finding many practical uses of rain curtains in home.
What is a Rain Curtain?
Rain curtains exist in nature in the form of curtains of natural rain, often seen as a wide, cascading waterfall at a distance when a storm is approaching. Taking these as inspiration, designers and engineers have created pumping systems that recycle water and distribute it in such a way that it mimics the nature. Although dozens of variations exist, commercially available rain curtains fall under two broad categories:
- An open system where you can reach out and touch.
- A closed system where water is held between two sheets of glass.
Uses for Rain Curtain
As rain curtains are commercially available in standard as well as custom sizes, they are used as water features in creative ways at home and small businesses everywhere. In a home, when you want to create an opaque barrier between rooms or spaces within a room, a rain curtain can make a perfect partition. For example, if you want a mini office space instead of a dedicated room for your home office, a rain curtain partition provides you with the privacy you need without a solid barrier.
Due the sight of flowing water being so soothing and reminiscent of healthy outdoor living, therapists, day spas, organic cosmetics boutiques and other businesses are using them as eye-catching centerpieces and even as backdrops for displays, as screens.
Having an affordable option for interior decorating, what’s stopping you from transforming your home and landscape into a tropical oasis with rain curtains?
