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.
If your using a decorative rod, poke the pin in at 1-1/2 inches from the top. If non-decorative white traverse rod, then make it 1-3/4 to 2 inches from the top. Depending on how the drapery is packaged, most likely it will have wrinkles. I recommend steaming out the wrinkles after the panels are hung. A portable hand held steamer works well and is what I use. Follow the manufactures recommendations as some fabric especially silk, cannot be steamed. Lastly, after you steam, you want to train your fabric to hang nice. Some fabric looks great out of the package, but most do not. They need a little extra work, but its worth the results. What you can do is tie the fabric. First cut 3, 4 foot long strips of plastic about 4 inches wide.
You might have some idea about the kind of drapery that would be perfect to adorn your home well. It may be quite possible that you are not satisfied by the kind of drapery that you ordered or stitched yourself. The solution now lies in custom drapes. Custom drapery makers would meet your requirements and stand tall to your expectations. Contact one of these custom drapery makers and tell them your requirements. Make sure that you don't miss out on a single detail. Describe in detail whatever you picture be it the style that you want (pleated or non pleated, flowing or fitting), floral, geometric or self colour.
Manually operated rods offer an alternative to mounted draperies that need to draw. This type opens and closes by manually pulling the drapes to the desired position. The last type of drapery rod is stationary. This type of rod will slide through a rod pocket along the top of the drapery. Stationary rods can be wood or metal and are on grommet, rod pocket, or tab top drapes. When measuring for drapes, check for obstructions. For example, do you have a low soffit or kitchen counter ending right up to your patio door? Do you plan on adding a top treatment, valance, or cornice? If not, consider a decorative rod. To measure your length, measure about 4-5 inches above your opening.
Finials. Finials are not absolutely necessary but they are a lot of fun to pick out and decorate with. Finials are the decorative pieces that attach to the end of drapery rods and they come in a wide variety of styles and materials. You can get finials in wood, iron, glass, or you can even get fabric covered finials. Finials can be simple or elegant, modern or antique and go a long way toward dressing up your window treatments.
