Draperies. Friday , August 17th , 2018 - 07:12:44 AM
Drapery hooks are a simple yet important accessory for your overall window treatment arrangement. However, despite their important functionality to the style attributes they offer; these seemingly minute drapery accessories tend to get overlooked by many. With the large amount of different accessories being offered in items that serve the same functionality, particularly drapery rings, it is no wonder these diamonds in the rough have gotten lost over the years. The drapery hook is fairly simple in design; offering the simple functionality of connecting the drapery itself to the curtain rod. However, while in fact the overall functionality is a simple concept, and there might not be a large amount of room in terms of variations and customizations; drapery hooks can still play an important supplemental role in the styling of your drapery set.
Most importantly, use your creativity when decorating with draperies. We often associated drapes exclusively with windows, but there are other ways to utilize these features. For example, a four-post bed becomes even more dramatic if the posts are decorated with elegant draperies. In addition, you can create a private veranda by hanging drapes on open sides of a sundeck if you live in a dry climate. As is the case with any kind of decorating, always try to match your personality with the style of your room and use draperies to highlight your style while maintaining the flow of that room. There are endless possibilities for decorating with drapes and you should never let your imagination be stifled.
Draperies can be used with or without window blinds to create an aesthetically pleasing window treatment for your home. Not all draperies have the insulated backing so you can get them with or without this feature. Draperies come in a wide variety of fabrics so if you don't necessarily need window treatments that offer further insulation, you can still get the beautiful look and feel of draperies without that feature.
Lastly there is custom draperies that are made to a specific width and length. You can also choose the header style and fullness. Headers are at the top of the panel that attaches to a rod. Headers are available in many styles, I will talk about some of the most common here. Pinch pleat comes in 3 styles; standard, goblet, and European. These are used for draw drapes or stationary panels. Next there is a grommet, rod pocket and tab top. These are used only on stationary rods.
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.
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.
