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.
There are different types of drapery rods; traverse, manual, and stationary. Traverse rods have a pulley system enabling you to open and close the draperies by puling on a cord. They come in many different styles. The most simple traverse rod is plain white and is hidden behind the draperies when closed. There is also a decorative traverse rod. These are exposed just above to finish off the top of your drapery. They are usually metal and come in a wide variety of finishes in both traditional and contemporary styles. Traverse rods are used with pinch pleat draperies.
Know exactly what type of drapery you're going to hang before you begin looking for your drapery hardware. Different drapery styles require different drapery rods or curtain rods. A traditional pinch pleat drapery can be installed on a traverse rod or a decorative rod. Swags can be hung on a wood or metal pole or draped between drapery holdbacks or tiebacks. Tab-top draperies are almost always installed on a wood or metal drapery pole. And, ripplefold draperies can only be installed on specially made curtain rods with the help of your drapery maker or workroom.
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.
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.
When most people think of blackout curtains, generally the concept of style is not of importance. However, these items; despite the fact they are used mainly for their functionality, do act as a dominant visual stimulant to the space. As such, it is important to ensure you find a specific style of blackout drapery that will meld well with the pre-existing accessories in your space to avoid any unwanted styling clashes that might occur otherwise.
