Draperies. Friday , August 17th , 2018 - 07:16:16 AM
Drapery panels can drastically change the look of a room. You can use them in addition to blinds to add color and warmth to a space. They also block out light, insulate drafty windows and add privacy. However they can be overwhelming to shop for. There are hundreds of color and styles to choose from, not to mention the hardware. I will try to help you narrow it down by touching on a few subjects.
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.
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.
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.
My colleagues and I in the interior design industry began to notice this fundamental shift in homeowner expectations a few years back. Week after week, "Design On A Dime" showcased homeowners creating stunning interior spaces using simple and inexpensive objects without the aid of an interior designer. Instead of hiring a professional designer, homeowners are more and more frequently opting to decorate their home themselves. While doing-it-yourself can be rewarding, there are some interior design tasks where the help and advice of a professional can actually save you money in the long-run. Choosing your drapery hardware is one of those tasks.
