Alternative Closet Door Ideas

If your closet doors need a little updating, or if your space is limited and you don’t have room for a door that swings out, consider adding drapes in lieu of closet doors. This also works well when you have a space that needs a little camouflaging.

Bi-fold doors can be functional, but what if you want to update the look? Or add a little more style to your space? Replacing your closet doors with draperies could be the thing you are looking for. And you will be able to access your clothes a little easier!

 

 

 

 

Installing the draperies is quite easy.  A drapery rod can be installed on the inside of the closet, on the door jam or above the opening.
The possibilities are endless. Try using a pattern or color to really make the draperies pop. You can use tiebacks to pull back the draperies exposing your well-organized closet.

Advantages of Blackout Lining

 

Blackout Lined Custom Curtains and Drapes
http://www.babybedding.com/

This is a question I get quite often. What is the difference between your Standard Privacy Lining and Blackout Lining?

Either lining will protect your draperies from the sun, making them last for years. It is because of this, we always recommend that you line your draperies.

Our Standard Privacy Lining is a thin and flexible. A tightly woven fabric made of 50% Polyester and 50% cotton. It is white in color.

Our Blackout lining is constructed of multiple layers, woven tight to block sunlight in drapes and shades for style and functionality. Made of 100% polyester, it is thin and flexible. Also, our Blackout Lining is not black, it is white so that it will match the other drapery linings in your home.

We did a little informal demonstration to better illustrate how much light blackout lined custom drapery eliminate. The following photo is shot on a single window with two linen drapery panels. The drape on the left was made with standard privacy lining, the drape on the right was made with blackout lining. The photo was shot on a hot and sunny afternoon. The difference between the two curtain panels is quite dramatic. When you see how much of the light is blocked by the blackout lining (95%) you really get a better understanding how using quality lined curtains, drapery or roman shades would significantly lower you home’s energy bills and save your interior upholstery fabrics from sun damage.

We encourage the use of this lining whenever the application is appropriate. It certainly adds weight to the drapery but if you are using quality drapery hardware, blackout is really the way to go when buying your next pair of custom drapery or curtains.

At DrapeStyle we make each set of drapes to order with your choice of lining. Whether you would like silk, cotton, linen or any other of our custom drapes, you can upgrade the lining option to blackout for only $99 per panel. All of our drapery linings are manufactured by Hanes which has been the leader in manufacturing quality drapery linings for nearly 100 years. Simply select “Blackout Lining” from the lining selection on any of our drapery pages and we will add this this to your drapery panels.

Trending Now-Winter Whites

When you design with winter whites, the resulting interior can be fresh, warm and inviting. Shades of white are the perfect interior design palette to counter the gloomy doldrums of winter. Always a chic choice, decorating with white is a here-to-stay classic, and it doesn’t have to be cold and impersonal.

Top designers use classic white shades to create a relaxed living style with distressed furniture, flowers, plants, and muted accessories. The result? Rooms that look lovely and lived in.

Start with a white painted room and you have a blank canvas for everything. The layering of parchment to oyster to cream looks so appealing and cozy. Don’t try to match shades; enjoy the subtleties. Select rich fabrics and layer objects of different textures.

 

Consider white walls your easel. Art assumes greater prominence when placed in a white interior. Gallery owners have long displayed artwork against white walls for maximum effect.

A pop of color goes a long way in a white room. Almost any hue will bloom against a white backdrop and it is easy to change.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wood warms up even the most sparsely furnished winter white room, Have kids or pets? Consider stain resistant, or even outdoor fabrics. They can be durable and washable. Worried about your white drapes? Add a colored border to the bottom if the fabric will be grazing the floor.

Love the winter white look? Great rooms start with great fabrics. Explore DrapeStyle’s hundreds of designer fabrics in an amazing variety of colors, patterns and styles. Whether you are looking for custom made Roman shades, Drapes or pillows, DrapeStyle has a large selection of richly textured fabrics in cream, parchment, oyster and ivory to create the room of your dreams.
