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.
Do you have enough wall space above the panels if your using a decorative rod? When measuring for width, rule of thumb is add 4" to each side of an opening. For example, if your window is 80 inches wide, you would order 88 inch panels. Basically you want your panels to overlap your windows by 4 inches on each side. A couple of exceptions are; if you want your window to appear bigger or wider, then add more than 4 inches, or if you want all or most of your glass exposed when the drapes are drawn open, then add more than 4 inches, this will allow the panels to stack over wall thus maintaining your view. Just make sure you have enough wall on both sides of the window for this. If you order custom drapes, they will come pre-pinned otherwise you must pin them yourself.
One thing we should remember though when shopping for draperies and its hardware is to decide whether we want them decorative or functional. When we shop, we think of whether what we're buying is cheap or expensive. However, we have to realize that as long as we go for quality, something, which may seem expensive now is actually cheap in the long run. So let's talk about what consists of drapery hardware. First we have the curtain pole or rod. Like all the other drapery hardware, the curtain pole or rod can come in materials like wood, chrome, and plastic. This is where you attach the ringers for the curtain. So the main purpose of this hardware is for support. They can come in the form of regular rods, hinged rods and motorized rods.
There are different types of drapery rods; traverse, manual, and stationary. 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.
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.
