Disposable garbage bags work well. Then fan fold a panel and tie a strip of plastic at the bottom to hold the fan in place. Tie another strip about 1-1/2 feet above that and one more about 3 to 4 feet above the bottom. Repeat on all panels. Leave it like this for about 2 weeks. When you take it off the strips of plastic, the pleats will be nice and uniform. I hope this sheds a little light on selecting draperies. Good luck and I'm sure your drapes will look beautiful.
Drapes and curtains can make a bold statement in every room; at the same time, they can add a subtle elegance that only highlights a picturesque window. However you look at it, decorating with draperies is functional and stylish and there are many options available. Draperies block light and sound and help to manage heat and cold, but they are also a decorators dream as they have the potential to bring your personality into a room. But before we talk about decorating with draperies, let's try to define draperies more specifically.
* Ring Top Drapery comes with sewn in drapery rings. Rings are available in a variety of finishes to accent the drapery hardware and rod. Drapery rings are included with choice of either metal or wood rings. Metal rings generally accommodate a drapery rod up to 1 1/2 inch in diameter while wood rings usually accommodate a curtain rod up to 1 3/8 inch in diameter. * French pleat drapery panels bring a European flair to any home. The tucked pleat in the front brings a quaint charm to any room. These blinds are attached with a clip on the back that hooks into a pin. The fabric appears to sit above the rod, concealing most of the rod except the ends. Decorative ends can be used to dress up the curtains. * Grommet drapery panels have a grommet or bronze ring sewn into the fabric. The hole in the ring is what goes over the curtain rod. Grommet panels are fairly common.
Decorative wood and metal poles are made to look pretty, not to traverse your draperies. If you're going to open and close your draperies frequently, a traverse rod is the way to go. Decorative poles with rings aren't made for frequent use. In fact, you may find that sliding your drapery open or closed across a decorative wood pole isn't as easy as you thought. That's because natural imperfections in the wood sometimes cause wood poles to develop a slight bow. Drapery hardware manufacturers are quick to point out that decorative poles are meant to be decorative, not functional.
Decide how often you're going to open and close your drapery. If you're going to frequently open and close your drapes (also called traversing your draperies), then you'll probably want to choose a traverse style drapery rod. This style of curtain rod has cords that allow you to open or close your drapery easily. Traverse rods can open from the middle, or they can open from one side or the other. The way the drapery opens is called the draw. Split draw traverse rods open from the middle, one-way traverse rods open from either the left or right side.
Popular Styles. Getting into the styling of these accessories, there are a number of different designs that suit specific elements in a room. While in fact many people are simply looking for the light blocking element that blackout drapery presents, it is also important to some of these people to avoid styling clashes with other pre-existing accessories in their space. Fortunately, many designs of blackout drapery consist of solid, neutral based colors without many patterns or details that would otherwise make them difficult to incorporate into a theme. Usually the designs on blackout drapery are fairly simple and not as intricate as many of the mainstream drapery designs.
