When you are measuring for your custom drapes you may want to consider adding 4-5 extra inches to the length as a puddle. A Designer Secret for creating more elegant drapes is to add a puddle which spreads our on the floor beneath the drape. A puddle will also give the illusion that your windows and ceilings are taller. At DrapeStyle we often use drapes that puddle on the floor in our photo-shoots as they are more traditional and elegant. If you need any help in measuring for your draperies, even if you have extra long windows please give one of our Designers a call and we can help you to determine the perfect length for an elegant puddle. We would be happy to provide you with free fabric samples along with great advice. For over a decade, DrapeStyle has been the very best place to buy custom drapes online.
You can add an elegant puddle to your custom drapes in either linen or silk fabrics.
