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.

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.

Traditionally, windows would be treated with up to three layers of curtain: a light sash which filters light, a draw curtain to block light completely, and an over-drapery which functioned decoratively only. Moreover, in formal rooms, these layers of curtain may have been covered with a valence to hide hardware. However, modern rooms are treated with draperies differently, and sashes are often called curtains, while draperies are those materials that draw to completely cover a window and block light.

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.

To begin with, it poses an important function in blocking out unwanted light to a specific area; generally in bedrooms for people who work nights and sleep during the day. As such, these unique accessories consist of thick and heavy fabrics that exhibit both longevity as well as extreme efficiency in their functionality.

Traverse rods have a pulley system enabling you to open and close the draperies by puling on a cord. They come in many different styles. The most simple traverse rod is plain white and is hidden behind the draperies when closed. There is also a decorative traverse rod. These are exposed just above to finish off the top of your drapery. They are usually metal and come in a wide variety of finishes in both traditional and contemporary styles. Traverse rods are used with pinch pleat draperies.

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.

There are a variety of drapery rods available, constructed of aluminum, steel, wood, bamboo, and other materials. You can also buy extension rods or rods that fit together to ensure you get just the right measurement for your windows. You will need traverse rods if you plan on hanging draperies that you can adjust by using a wand or pull cord. You can get either one way or two way traverse rods, depending on how you want to be able to open and close your drapes. If you won't be using the pull cord option, then you can just choose from standard curtain and drapery rods. Basic curtain rods will fit into brackets mounted above or near the window while you can also use straight rods that give you the option to add decorative finials to the ends.
