Drapery panels can drastically change the look of a room. You can use them in addition to blinds to add color and warmth to a space. They also block out light, insulate drafty windows and add privacy. However they can be overwhelming to shop for. There are hundreds of color and styles to choose from, not to mention the hardware. I will try to help you narrow it down by touching on a few subjects.
Rods. No matter which kind of curtains or drapes you adorn your windows with, you will need rods upon which to hang them. There are a variety of drapery rods available, constructed of aluminum, steel, wood, bamboo, and other materials. You can also buy extension rods or rods that fit together to ensure you get just the right measurement for your windows. You will need traverse rods if you plan on hanging draperies that you can adjust by using a wand or pull cord. You can get either one way or two way traverse rods, depending on how you want to be able to open and close your drapes. If you won't be using the pull cord option, then you can just choose from standard curtain and drapery rods. Basic curtain rods will fit into brackets mounted above or near the window while you can also use straight rods that give you the option to add decorative finials to the ends.
Consumers will be happy to know there are window treatments and drapes that are sewn exclusively in the United States. Drapes are some of the most versatile window treatments in terms of fabric choices. Fabrics may be heavier silks and satins for a more formal look, or they can be lightweight linens for a clean, soft look. Some drapes are embroidered for added detailing in decorating, while others offer simple lines for background ambiance. Curtain rods also come in a variety of styles and finishes. Rod ends can be purchased in standard wood or bronze, or to excite things, blown art glass and ceramic ends can finish off a room nicely. Drapery styles offer privacy, protection from glare, but most importantly, they bring style to a home.
Drapery provides intimacy and regulates the volume of natural light inside a room. Choosing the right kind of drapery in your room can be sometimes confusing. Drapery can either subtly blend into your room's background or downright make an impact and statement in the room. The drapes you use will often times reflect your personality.
Regardless of how you define draperies, decorating your windows with the right colour and material can make or break a room. In fact, even more minor details such as the shape, length, and style of draperies can have a significant impact. Ultimately, when decorating with drapes or curtains, you should consider these features in the bigger picture of the room. Are you looking to create a bright, breezy appearance that would be best served with a lighter, more colourful fabric? Or are you trying to create an elegant, traditional design that might best be served by heavy drapes with embroidered details? The function or purpose of the room should influence your drapery decorating decisions.
