Drapery Curtains will often combine the look of a window covering into a very decorative room, using special types of draperies window coverings you will be able to create a totally fresh and unique look in this room. There are so many choices of curtain fabrics available that will compliment any style or home. Curtains drapes can be totally independent of any other window covering. What I mean is that when i decorate home I dont just lock myself into a certain style, for instance using drapery curtain rods throughout sometimes will overwhelm an area, so it is quite sensible to mix and match different types of products.
Curtains Homes are also a totally different look to furnishing your home with roller blinds , we are now seeing from many different material manufacturers diffent compositions of fibres that traditionally havent been used in the past. Drapery curtains can also provide a great thermal protection during winter and summer, you must ensure that your curtain is lined in total blockout lining. Affordable pattern curtains are now also available in a huge range of ready made curtains, these are generally provided by large department stores at a reasonable price in comparison to using custom made products
Draperies window treatments can either be made as pinch pleated drapes or alternatively they can be made using a pencil pleat finish which is more like a gathered heading but a little more formal looking , drapes , curtains and valances are generally co-ordinated using the same fabric but quite often using a contrast colour for your valance. Tiebacks can also be again done in a totally different colour from the same range of materials.
One of the most important facets when even considering curtains is to really make sure that whatever window covering or treatment you use is totally functional. So many times i have been back to clients who have paid to have custom made drapery curtains and they look fantastic but do not suit the home or room. Generally any type of window treatment that you use should be able to open and close or either go up and down.
Generally most curtains are either hung on a decorative curtain rods or curtain tracks that are either cord operated or hand traverse, this is the correct way to hang you new drapery curtains.
