Are curtains necessary?
We're getting our house ready to put on the market, and one project involves the guest bedroom - removing the wallpaper and painting. We are also removing the dated drapes and valance from the 12 foot wide windows, that essentially cover almost one entire wall of the room. As you can probably guess, replacing these will be very costly. Is it OK to NOT buy and install new curtains & rods, and let people be wowed by the natural light? We're on 3 acres, set far back from the cul-de-sac road, so privacy isn't a big issue. I just hate to dole out $200+ (ebay was the cheapest!) on window treatments that we'll never use, and potential buyers may turn around and want something different for that room (It's a first floor bedroom, while the 3 primary bedrooms are upstairs).
Curtains or no curtains?
