Living Room Drapery

If there is any one room in the house that we love to drape it would be the Living Room.  We love our living rooms and the reality is that they are really more and more the showcases for our style and decor.  Keep the kids out of the living room…and the dog and let your creativity go wild.  Deck it out with silk drapes, lined drapes or the combination of the two.  Add a rich flowing puddle so that your drapes fall gracefully on the floor.  Our Installers will often spend up to 30 minutes per window just detailing and dressing the way the drapery puddle covers the floor.  If you are going to choose one room to be your showcase room for your living room drapes than let your color and fabric palette loose.  We often suggest a 4-6 inch puddle for your drapes if you are not going to be opening and closing the door frequently.  If you are going to be opening and closing the drapes often you probably will want to avoid the puddle and just have your drapes hang just above the floor.  If you have any questions on how to measure for a drapery floor puddle or just great living room drapery ideas than give one of our Designers a call.
