A Guide To Custom Drapes

A guide to custom drapes will help familiarize you with the terms people frequently use when they are talking about plain and patterned drapery panels. If you are interested in designing custom drapery, you’ll find this article will help you with the ends and outs of working with your interior decorator.

A Guide To Custom Drapes

Working Vocabulary:

Pattern – This is a decorative design. Now that is a pretty broad definition. In window coverings there are a multitude of options. Do you want bold prints or a chevron, stripes or geometric shapes? Do you want to create a focal point with your custom drapery or just enhance the décor that is already stunning? The pattern you pick is often determined by what else you want to achieve in the room. For example, a vertical stripe can enhance small spaces or make the room look taller. A dramatic pattern is perfect for balancing a neutral décor. Whatever design you pick will determine how much fabric you need too.

Style: Flat, pleated, pinch-pleats Working with patterned fabric creates an unusual visual effect. Typically patterned fabrics are woven or printed with the design running horizontally and repeated along the length of the fabric. If the fabric lays flat or is stationary you get a different view than if you have pleats or parallel folds when you open the curtain. Tighter patterns are easier to match up. Your fabric may require being cut to get to the desired layout.

Standard Width – a standard drapery panel is approximately 48” wide when closed. As with many things there are industry standards that can dictate how you design your custom drape.

Finials– these are the decorative knobs or ends of your drapery rods. They can also be used individually to hold back the curtain and look similar to knobs on the wall.

Hanging Draperies

Ideally draperies are hung halfway between the window trim and the ceiling. This allows your windows to provide maximum natural lighting and also this makes your rooms appear bigger. You will find many draperies are hung from the ceiling to the floor and some puddle on the ground for an elegant touch. Our professional installers will be happy to install your custom drapery so that they capture the right look for your living space. We will also make sure you have the correct rods, hooks or finials to finish the look.
