Children's rooms are also good candidates for curtains over draperies, although you still want to make sure you adorn any windows with fire retardant fabrics. While draperies are more expensive than curtains, there is still quite a bit of difference in the prices and features so if you are on a budget, look carefully to see how you can save money on draperies. Obviously, the custom made draperies will cost more than stocked sizes.
In the old days, drapery consisted of hanging curtains on your window and that was it. What you hung it on didn't matter, as long as that they look good. Today, it's not that easy. With the trend of specialization, there are tools for most things out there that it takes an effort to keep track of them. And draperies are no exception. We now have. What is called drapery hardware? And for the free spirits out there, we have custom drapery hardware.
Tailor made drapery hardware treatments can also be a choice. If you've looked all through the typical drapery hardware possibilities provided by Kirsch but can't find that ideal drapery rod, don't give up because customized drapery poles aren't as costly as you may think. Estate Rods are wood or metal style drapery rods that work like a traditional traverse rod but mimic a decorative rod with finials. And, a few have decorative rings just for looks. Customized Estate Rods from Kirsch can be created to your exact requirements, so you'll know you're getting exactly what you want. These tailor made rods are a wonderful option for really unconventional windows, or for heavy window treatments that may not operate smoothly on a conventional traverse Rod.
Blackout drapery is an important aspect to the overall design of your space. To begin with, it poses an important function in blocking out unwanted light to a specific area; generally in bedrooms for people who work nights and sleep during the day. As such, these unique accessories consist of thick and heavy fabrics that exhibit both longevity as well as extreme efficiency in their functionality.
If your using a decorative rod, poke the pin in at 1-1/2 inches from the top. If non-decorative white traverse rod, then make it 1-3/4 to 2 inches from the top. Depending on how the drapery is packaged, most likely it will have wrinkles. I recommend steaming out the wrinkles after the panels are hung. A portable hand held steamer works well and is what I use. Follow the manufactures recommendations as some fabric especially silk, cannot be steamed. Lastly, after you steam, you want to train your fabric to hang nice. Some fabric looks great out of the package, but most do not. They need a little extra work, but its worth the results. What you can do is tie the fabric. First cut 3, 4 foot long strips of plastic about 4 inches wide.
Fire Retardant Draperies Offer Added Protection. Purchasing draperies constructed of fire retardant fabrics can offer added protection to your home in the event of a fire. Since these draperies are constructed from a variety of attractive fabrics and colors, you can still adorn your windows beautifully while having the peace of mind that your drapes won't sustain fire or catch on fire.
