Design professionals will be able to help you evaluate the character of these different elements and ultimately determine what combination of them will best suit your personality, your space and your style. This way, you get custom draperies that are truly in line with what you want and need, and that set you and your home apart. As window treatments draperies also offer you a high degree of style control in terms of fabric choice. There are a multitude of fabrics available, so between the combination of drapery style and fabric options, you have an infinite palette in front of you. Choose heavy or ornate fabrics for a formal look, or light, airy fabrics for a more casual feel. Interior design experts can help you navigate all of the textile possibilities and will be able to match the right fabric choice to the right style of window drapery to achieve your perfect look.
Draperies instantly improve the look of almost any décor and you have a wide variety of choices when you choose to adorn your windows with draperies. You can buy them online in stocked sizes or have them custom made. You can choose lightweight or heavier fabrics, depending on your likes and your needs and you can purchase draperies that are dry clean only or the kind that you can throw in the washing machine. Below, we'll discuss some of the things you may want to take into consideration before you decide that draperies are right for you.
Think about what's under and behind your drapery when selecting your drapery hardware. There are three common terms that drapery hardware professionals use when talking about the spacing of your drapery hardware treatment. Projection, clearance and return. Projection typically refers to how far the decorative hardware elements will "stick out" or project into the room from the wall. The return measurement is usually the distance the drapery must bend back to reach the wall when it's hanging from your drapery rod. And, clearance refers to the open space behind the drapery and back to the wall. Or, "how much room do I have behind the curtain to hang another rod, window blind or sheer"? You'll notice that I've qualified each term loosely, and for good reason. Depending on who you're speaking with, either a drapery maker, installer or hardware fabricator; clearance, projection and return can mean different things.
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.
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.
Obviously, the colour and pattern of your draperies should never be underestimated. Most decorators will try to match some of the colours in fabrics of furniture or the carpet, or even the paint or wallpaper to the colours in the draperies. Often, we want at least one or two colours to bring a room together and your draperies are an integral component of the flow of your room. A room with dark furniture and carpets may best be served by darker coloured curtains. Alternatively, flowery curtains and drapes can add a vibrant dimension to any room that will totally change the mood.
