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.
Lastly there is custom draperies that are made to a specific width and length. You can also choose the header style and fullness. Headers are at the top of the panel that attaches to a rod. Headers are available in many styles, I will talk about some of the most common here. Pinch pleat comes in 3 styles; standard, goblet, and European. These are used for draw drapes or stationary panels. Next there is a grommet, rod pocket and tab top. These are used only on stationary rods.
Most people aren't aware of the variety of drapery styles available. From rod pocket drapery to ring top drapery - with clips or rings - to French pleat drapery and grommet drapery, there are styles to complete the look of any interior design. The following five styles are among the most popular: * Rod pocket drapery panels are designed so the curtain fabric wraps around the drapery rod without any clips or grommets. The drapery pocket sewn into the top of the fabric will accommodate any drapery rod up to 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Each rod pocket drapery panel comes with fullness so enter the size area you need to cover. Just as with textiles, some drapes are made overseas and some are hand sewn in the USA. Check with manufacturers if you prefer products made in the US. * Ring Top Drapery Panels have clip on rings. The rings then attach to the drape and fit over a drapery rod. Most rings are made of either wood or metal finishes. Rods are also available in wood and metal frames and a variety or finishes - matted metal, different color stains and more. Liners are usually available as an upgrade.
The second item to consider in choosing your drapery hooks is the overall design. Obviously, the design of the product is going to play a vital role in how well it will meld into your pre-existing theme and drapery set. However, some designs exhibit more functionality and durability than others. So for those who have heavy or large drapery, ensure that when you find a hook that exhibits the style qualities you desire also possesses the ability to function with your heavy-duty curtain.
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.
Most importantly, use your creativity when decorating with draperies. We often associated drapes exclusively with windows, but there are other ways to utilize these features. For example, a four-post bed becomes even more dramatic if the posts are decorated with elegant draperies. In addition, you can create a private veranda by hanging drapes on open sides of a sundeck if you live in a dry climate. As is the case with any kind of decorating, always try to match your personality with the style of your room and use draperies to highlight your style while maintaining the flow of that room. There are endless possibilities for decorating with drapes and you should never let your imagination be stifled.
