What is a Width?

What is a “Width”?  This is probably the question I am asked most often from customers.

fabric-shop-720

You ordered fabric samples.  You taped the fabric samples to your wall next to the window.  You lived with those samples taped to your wall for two weeks, and finally decided on a color.  Now you’re ready to order your drapes.

Quantity, check.  Fabric, check.  Pleat, check.  Length, check.  Width…..width?  Do I need 1 width?  2 and a half widths?  What IS a width?

You are online, ordering drapes and you hit a snag.  What is a “width”?  This is the question I am asked most often.  A width refers to the width of the fabric used to make a drape or curtain.  Usually, when you roll the fabric off a bolt, it is about 54″ wide.  1 width starts out at 54″ wide.  The sewing begins by gathering and tacking the pleat.  Then we create 1 1/2″ side hems with blind stitching.  Then we sew 3 1/2″ overlaps-you want the drapes to overlap in the center, so light does not shine through.

 

 

These pictures are examples of drapes that do not have overlaps, they are not wide enough to completely close:

DrapeStyle also creates 3 1/2″ returns-a return is a piece of fabric at the end of the drape that returns back to the wall so that light does not shine through the sides.  So what started as a 54″ wide piece of fabric, is now a 26″ wide drape with French Pleats.

Here are some examples of returns:

So based on all of these details, NOW how many widths do I need?

 

DrapeStyle has this easy formula we use to determine width:

Length of drapery rod (in inches) + 16″ = X

X divided by the # of drapes = how many inches wide each drape should be.

 

Ask yourself how wide is your window?  Or better yet, how wide is the drapery rod you are going to hang your drapes on?  If your window is 48″ wide, you will probably want to extend the drapery rod at least 4″ on both sides of the window.  So your finish width is 56″.

Take the finished width, 56″, and add 16″ to account for hems and overlaps.  56″ plus 16″ equals 72″.

Take this number, 72″, and divide it by the number of drapes you would like.  Usually the number of drapes is 2.  So 72″ divided by 2 equals 36″. You want each drape to be at least 36″ wide.  This will ensure that the drapes will have adequate coverage and it will be 2 times fullness.  Fullness refers to the additional fabric needed to make the pleats full and rich looking.  At DrapeStyle, we think that 2 times fullness looks great.  You want your drapes to look, full, luxurious, and rich looking.  Not wimpy, and you certainly want to be sure that the drapes are made wide enough to close.  After all, you paid for the drapes to block out light and add a little privacy, right?

 

Here’s a chart to help you:

Or, when you are entering your information online, next to the width you select, it will tell you how wide the drape will be:

Special Delivery! Oh BOY! (or GIRL!) Window Treatments for the Nursery

You’re expecting!  Congratulations!

So much to do before your little one arrives!  And preparing the nursery is a must.  Not only can window treatments provide the finishing touch for a room,  but window treatments in a nursery can make all the difference in your baby’s sleeping patterns.  If you are preparing a nursery, you will want to consider blackout lined drapes and roman shades.  Your baby will be sleeping most of the time, and blackout lining will provide nearly complete blockage of sunlight and streetlights, and provide UV protection; it is a great investment.  For an additional $99 per drape, you can add blackout lining and protect your window treatment investment.

Roman shades are a great way to create privacy and block out light.   DrapeStyle can custom make roman shades to fit inside or mounted outside your window.  This is a beautiful and inexpensive way to control light in a nursery.  Decorative drapery panels can be added to either side of the window for added interest, texture and color.  Tie in your drapes with the crib bedding or the theme of the nursery.  Don’t be afraid to add fun designs or bright colors to the nursery.  Have fun and get creative!

You can add a designer touch by adding unique tiebacks to the drapes.  Traditional tiebacks can be beautiful, but why not get creative and use garland, flowers, stuffed animals; almost anything can be attached to rope or ribbon and be used as a tie back!

What’s Your New Year’s Resolution? Resolve to Refresh

 

Custom Curtains and Drapes by DrapeStyle

 

 

 

 

How many of you made New Year’s resolutions?

I usually make two; one resolution I know I can keep, like, I vow to take a multivitamin everyday.  And the other is more of a goal.  This year, my “goal” is to clean out and organize my craft closet.  I have a craft closet, stuffed full of all things crafty; jewelry making stuff, pillow making stuff, party decorating stuff, sewing stuff, 4th of July decorations, St. Patty’s day decorations, floral arranging stuff… You get the point.  So I plan on cleaning out my closet, and reorganize everything so it’s easy to get to.  And I’m going to try and get my husband to clean out the garage.  And I think if we clean and purge enough, we might have enough “stuff” to hold a yard sale.

 

Resolve to Refresh…

If the New Year puts you in the same mind set; cleaning out and organizing, you may find that you want to update a few things around the house.  What about custom made window treatments and pillows?

Much like a well tailored suit, custom window treatments in the correct length and width, can make all the difference.  And DrapeStyle can help.  We’ve been making custom drapes and roman shades since 2002.  In any length and any width, we can create a look that’s just right for your home.  You know how good you look in a tailored outfit, if it fits good, you feel great.  It’s the same with window treatments.

Sure, you can purchase drapes at the department store in the lengths they want to sell.  Sure, you can go to the home store and purchase the same ready made roman shades your neighbors have.  Or you can get custom window treatments made in your choice of over 400 fabrics, 6 drapery pleat styles, 5 roman shade styles, and dozens of different trims, tassels, fringe and ribbon for that truly custom look.

Baby It’s Cold Outside! DrapeStyle Can Help!

Winter’s coming…and according to the Farmer’s Almanac, you’d better stock up on long johns and firewood.  Especially if you’re east of the Rockies, predictions are, you are going to be hit hard!  Pair that with rising energy costs, and your monthly home heating costs could go through the roof!

Here are 7 things you can do to help combat a cold house and make your thermostat happy:

 

1. Add A Down Filled Comforter

Down has always been the preferred insulator when worn or for bundling up while sleeping.  Body heat is trapped between the little fluffs of down, creating a re-generating heat source that will keep you warm all night long.  There are different weight levels available-some are even available with dual-zone comforters for bed partners with different sleeping temperature preferences! The best down originates from birds from the coldest climates, such as Hungarian or Siberian geese.  Plus, using a duvet allows you to change your room’s look easily from season to season or from one style to another without having to reinvest in a quality insert. 

2. Use A Humidifier 

Cold, winter air is notoriously dry, often leaving your home’s humidity around 10%…far short of the ideal of 30-40%  Having the correct humidity levels not only provides additional warmth to a house, but it also has many other benefits such as reducing allergens, reducing the risk of furniture damage, and controlling static electricity.

3. Change The Direction Of Your Ceiling Fans 

Most fans spin and pull air up to the ceiling.  By simply reversing the direction of your ceiling fan and pushing the rising heat back down into your living space, you can save as much as 10% on energy costs.  Ceiling too high to manually change blade direction?  This may be a good time to replace your fan with one with a built-in remote control.

4. Reinforce Cold, Drafty Areas 

 Windows — Take a candle or incense stick to the window on a breezy day.  Move around the frame, inside and outside of the trim, and see if the smoke moves.  If it does, you have a draft spot.  Use paintable caulk for around the trim and silicone caulk outside if you can.  There are window weatherstrips available at most home improvement stores as well.  Insulating your window draperies can help keep the draft from entering the room as well.

Doors — The old, simple solution is a draft dodger-a fabric tube filled with sand or rice that lays along the bottom of your door.  Etsy has some fun and stylish options.  The best option, however, is to replace the weather stripping around your door, including the threshold strip.

5. Add Insulated Drapery Lining 

DrapeStyle can help with this one!  DrapeStyle offers insulated drapery lining, also called thermal lining, for all drapes and roman shades.  It’s common for drafts to come in around windows.  However, most pre-fabricated drapery panels available at most retailers, come with a simple, thin lining or with no lining at all.  DrapeStyle’s custom drapes and roman shades include lining! Let us help you select the interlining that’s best for your climate.  Interlining also adds body and weight to your drapes for a very luxurious, custom look. Our skilled workroom can add the following interlining to your drapes:

Flannel Interlining— Similar to the lightweight flannel sheets your grandma used, this supple lining goes between the face fabric and standard sateen lining.  Flannel interlining has been shown to reduce heat loss by 25%.

Bump Interlining— Originally used in Europe’s cold-climate country homes, bump interlining offers the most insulation for cold and sound.  It also gives a nice weight and drape to fine fabrics, such as silk.

6. Add Rugs To Bare Floors

Aside for the obvious (that rugs are warmer than tile or wood), wool rugs in particular are a natural insulator similar to down.  They’re hypoallergenic, provide moisture, and are incredibly durable.  Well-kept wool rugs can be handed down through generations.  Even better than an area rug would be wall-to-wall wool carpeting.

7. Get An Energy Audit

An inexpensive (often subsidized-check with your local electric company) professional test for air leaks, insulation levels and other thermal performance factors is the best way to learn where the cold is getting into your house.  They will give you tips and tricks to help keep the cold out, and often times will do the work themselves at a discounted fee.  Click here for more information on audits. 

 

So there you have it, 7 great ways to help keep the cold out this winter.  Or, you could always take up baking, not only will the heat from the oven heat up your home, but the baked goods you hand out to neighbors and co-workers will get you off of Santa’s naughty list!

 

 

Pantone names two colors of the year: ROSE QUARTZ & SERENITY

A SOFTER TAKE ON COLOR FOR 2016: FOR THE FIRST TIME, THE BLENDING OF TWO SHADES, ROSE QUARTZ AND SERENITY, ARE CHOSEN AS THE PANTONE COLOR OF THE YEAR.

Pantone_Color_of_the_Year_Rose_Quartz_Serenity_PCI_LogoAs consumers seek mindfulness and well-being as an antidote to modern day stresses, welcoming colors that psychologically fulfill our yearning for reassurance and security are becoming more prominent. Joined together, Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace.

The prevalent combination of Rose Quartz and Serenity also challenges traditional perceptions of color association.

In many parts of the world we are experiencing a gender blur as it relates to fashion, which has in turn impacted color trends throughout all other areas of design. This more unilateral approach to color is coinciding with societal movements toward gender equality and fluidity, the consumer’s increased comfort with using color as a form of expression, a generation that has less concern about being typecast or judged and an open exchange of digital information that has opened our eyes to different approaches to color usage.

WHAT IS THE PANTONE COLOR OF THE YEAR?

A symbolic color selection; a color snapshot of what we see taking place in our culture that serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude.

For the first time Pantone introduces two shades, Rose Quartz and Serenity as the PANTONE Color of the Year 2016. Rose Quartz is a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure. Serenity is weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, bringing feelings of respite and relaxation even in turbulent times.

 

 

ROSE QUARTZ and SERENITY COLOR PAIRINGS

Whether in soft or hard surface material, the pairing of Rose Quartz and Serenity brings calm and relaxation. Appealing in all finishes, matte, metallic and glossy, the engaging combo joins easily with other mid-tones including greens and purples, rich browns, and all shades of yellow and pink. Add in silver or hot brights for more splash and sparkle.*

Special Offer for Our Canadian Customers

At DrapeStyle we have been making our custom curtains, drapery and window treatments for Clients in Canada for well over a decade.  Some of our very first Designers Clients, in fact, were in Canada.  We appreciate our Canadian Customers and value them immensely.

Now, we are a little Company and we don’t spend much time researching international currency fluctuations.  In fact, have a hard time figuring out the exchange rates whenever I travel so I just stick to credit cards.  So when we heard that the currency exchange rate for the Canadian Dollar to US Dollar we thought we would dig into the subject a bit.  We were pretty surprised to see how much the exchange rate changed and how fast.  In just 5 months the Canadian Dollar has gotten significantly weaker versus the US Dollar.  This change in the rate certainly makes it less desirable for our Canadian Customers to buy their custom made window treatments (or any product for that matter) from any supplier in the US.  So, at DrapeStyle, we are going to do something about it.  Starting today Canadian Customers can save an additional 5% Off their custom made drapery, Roman Shades, drapery hardware and window treatments when they purchase them from DrapeStyle.  Just use the Coupon Code “Canada” at checkout.

Now, we can’t extend this offer forever.  The offer will end on March 13th, 2015.  It is not available to The Trade and can not be combined with any other offers.

Please call any of our Designers for details and thank you for shopping at DrapeStyle!

Extra Long Curtains and Drapes

It seems that almost all of the new homes that are being built lately feature huge, extra long and panoramic windows.  These windows are dramatic and provide amazing views but can be somewhat of a challenge when it comes to buying custom curtains or drapes.  If you visit most of the typical Retailers like Restoration Hardware or Ethan Allen you are probably not going to find drapery that will cover extra long windows.  Most retailers won’t have drapes that go beyond 120 inches.

At DrapeStyle we make each drapery panel to order and we can literally make any length or width you can imagine.  We “specialize” in “custom”.  Nothing is ready-made and we seriously don’t have any templates or restrictions, and we can ship your drapes, no matter how long or wide they are to almost anywhere on the planet.  We’ve made extra long drapes for Clients as far away as Australia, and, I don’t think you can get much further away from Orange County, California than Australia.  We can make longer curtains for Homeowners, Churches, Hotels, Restaurants and really any location.  Here are a couple of photos of extra long drapes we made here at DrapeStyle.  Oh, and we can also arrange to have your extra long or wide drapes installed as well!

We made these extra long drapes for a restaurant in San Francisco.  They were over 25 feet long.

Once in a while we like to give thanks where and when thanks are due.  Just call it good Karma.  It’s no secret that DrapeStyle not only ships extra long custom drapery valances and Roman Shades all over the US and Canada, but we also ship them Worldwide.  We ship custom drapes to Australia, Japan, France, Switzerland and even China!  Whenever we have one of these shipments going that requires some custom boxing or crating we always call the folks at Airway Packing for help.  They build our custom boxes and crates to perfect specs and they know exactly what the Customs requirements are for each Country that we are shipping too.  So, like a few weeks ago when we needed to ship a crate of long custom made drapes to Australia, the folks at Airway made us the perfect create to make sure that they arrived safely and made it through Customs without delay.  Thanks very much to Todd and his Crew at Airway.
