Draperies. Friday , August 17th , 2018 - 07:40:28 AM
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.
The fabric type and thickness play a direct role in how much light will be let in through the drapery. Obviously, some people prefer blackout drapery to perform as their name indicates, completely blocking out any incoming light from outside. However, other people prefer different amounts of light to be let in based on their specific preferences and expectations. As such, looking into material thickness and how opaque the material itself is plays a vital role in making these determinations. One other attribute that makes many newer designs of blackout drapery desirable is that they come insulated which helps to prevent cold or hot temperatures from penetrating them, in a sense having them act as insulation for your windows; thus saving money on electric bills.
You also have the finials, brackets and scones. Brackets are for supporting the rod or pole. Scones are decorative brackets and sometimes have fabrics threaded in them. As for finials, it's clear that they serve a solely decorative function. And there you have it, drapery. Now I know that a lot of us aren't very flexible with our budget and other than worrying about whether we can afford quality, we also want to get custom drapery hardware for that personal touch. Well, we shouldn't worry because there are stores that cater to those who are on a budget and should stick to it, so no worries.
Traverse drapery rods with cords don't have to be boring. Some homeowners gravitate away from traverse rods because they think they have to be plain, white metal rods with cords. But, that isn't the case. Drapery hardware manufacturers have become experts at constructing functional traverse rods that look exactly like a wood pole, or a decorative metal pole. Many decorative traverse rods have finial choices and fully operational rings. One of the leading makers of decorative traverse rods is Gould NY. Their patented top channel traverse design will fool anyone looking at the rod into thinking it's a beautiful wood pole with rings, not a traverse rod.
Picking out draperies doesn't involve as much planning as anything else in your house would take, but it is fun to get everyone in your family involved after all they would be living with those same drapes you pick out too. Before you're able to pick out any draperies, you must first decide the texture, color, and you want to make sure that it's going to look good in your home. The only way you're going to be able to decide on set color or texture is if you do all the researching. Now you wouldn't necessarily need to do any researching online, you just need to do the researching around your house meaning looking around to see what color of draperies would be a good match in your home.
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.
