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.
In choosing your drapery hooks for a specific theme or correlating drapery; there are a couple of items to consider that play an important role in determining whether or not the hooks will meld well with the pre-existing conditions of your theme. Each of the choices listed are among the most popular in their respective categories. Wood drapery hooks function well in most themes, including modern. Plastic hooks are more so for those who want a quick solution to their drapery hanging needs; and do not wish to devote a lot of time to the styling aspects of the accessory. Metallic are currently the most popular due to their modern appeal through sleek designs and aesthetically pleasing look all around.
Styles and Designs. Blackout drapery comes in a large array of styles and designs. As such, it is fairly easy to find a corresponding color or fabric that will work well with your pre-existing theme and accessories. Aside from the specific styling elements of the drapery itself, as well as the supplemental hardware and accessories; the thickness of the fabric one other thing people ironically do not look into enough when making their decision.
You can do the researching online as well, but it's not recommended because only you know what's in your house. The only way you would do researching online is if you have settled on what kind of draperies you want to get and you want to check to see if your favorite store has them, which also would be included in your planning. You might also have to take measurements because you could have a window that might not work with draperies. In your case, let's hope that's not the issue. If you're the kind of person who gets all crazy when it comes to matching everything, then you might also want to take a picture of the color scheme in your house and take it to any store and get some color samples to take home and browse different colors whether their unusual or not.
If you want to add more beauty to your room, then you must find more alternatives as there are numerous options available for you to add charm to your room. Besides this, you can also go for draperies. Draperies have history of beautifying the courts of kings and queens of earlier times. It is said that draperies also played a key role in religious sentiments. Pagans and Wiccans always had draperies for ritualistic activities. In modern times too, draperies have enticed every soul and you will find these in almost every home. Draperies are decorated around the windows, could be exterior or interior, depending on the person's choice. Before curtains came into existence, draperies ruled the lives of people in many ways. Countries in Europe still practice this tradition of draperies. You can find a number of exquisite designs and exotic patterns. There is a wide range of draperies to choose from and you can select any of these stunning designs depending on your choice.
Children's rooms are also good candidates for curtains over draperies, although you still want to make sure you adorn any windows with fire retardant fabrics. While draperies are more expensive than curtains, there is still quite a bit of difference in the prices and features so if you are on a budget, look carefully to see how you can save money on draperies. Obviously, the custom made draperies will cost more than stocked sizes.
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.
