Selecting the Proper Grommets for Custom Drapery

You would think that all Grommets are created equal.  The truth is, that if you are buying your drapery from most of the larger retailers than, they probably are.  Not at DrapeStyle though.  We buy all of our Grommets from the premium supplier in the US for drapery supplies.  They sell a range of quality (and priced) grommets.  I would bet that most manufacturers are simply going to buy the cheapest and at nearly $1.00 per grommet it hard to blame them.  At DrapeStyle we only buy the best grommets available, period.  Our grommets are heavy weights.  They won’t bend very easily or crack.  Nothing worse than buying gorgeous silk drapes and having a grommet crack and tear the silk fabric.  Ruining one set of silk drapery is going to offset any savings you are going to get from buying cheap grommets for a long time.

For our Outdoor Drapery we use very thick grommets that are made of 100% brass.  Brass is resistant to corrosion and will not tarnish like most every other metal.  If you are buying any Outdoor Drapes from anyone, please insist that the grommets are made of Brass.  Our Brass Grommets can be powder coated in a variety of finishes.

Custom Roman Blinds for any Budget

About six months ago DrapeStyle opened our new Orange County California Production Facility.  With our expanded capacity we are making more Roman Blinds than ever before and prices to fit any budget.  Unlike most Roman Shade and Blind Retailers, DrapeStyle makes our Blinds to order, by hand in the USA.

Our Shades and Blinds are available in over 300 fabric options from incredible Designers and Mills like Schumacher, Kravet, Lee Jofa and Duralee just to name a few.  Of course if you are on a Budget, we have your Blinds too.  Our Budget conscious Blinds are available in 100 cotton fabrics and poly/cotton blends.  Regardless of your selection of fabric, all of our shades and roman blinds are made to the exact same custom specifications that you would expect from DrapeStyle including solid hardwood header boards.

Our Roman Blinds and Shades ship in 2-3 weeks and are a perfect compliment to our custom made curtains and drapery.

Custom Drapery for Large, Wide or Extra Long Windows

Can DrapeStyle make very long curtains and drapery?  Extra wide curtains and drapes?  Blackout curtains?  The answer, of course, is YES!  We really need to do a better job of letting everyone know that DrapeStyle makes each drapes from scratch.  We don’t bring them in from India or China, we actually unroll the fabric, cut them and make the drapery the old fashioned way.  Making drapes here in the US went our of fashion about five decades ago but we still make them here.  Manufacturing in the US – California no less, is certainly not the least expensive way to make drapery but it does allow us to make the very best quality in the business.  Luxury and quality custom made drapery is what we have been about for well over a decade.

So, the short answer is, yes – DrapeStyle can make your extra long drapes, extra wide drapery and blackout curtains for your home theater room!  If you don’t see exactly what you need on our website just give us a call.  Our Team of Designers (Yes – they really are Designers) can help you create the perfect drapery to your exact specifications and measurements.  And we can probably make them for less than what you would think.  Just give us a call!

Great Custom Curtain and Drapery Pleat Options

So it’s hard enough to select the perfect fabric for your new curtains or drapes but you also need to decide on a pleat too. There are so many too choose from from the traditional French Pleat, also know as the Pinch Pleat and almost a dozen more. Well, let’s first just slow down a relax. Picking the perfect pleat for your new custom curtains or drapes is really easy.

First, let’s look at your style of decor. Is it traditional? Contemporary? Maybe Transitional? Whatever your style of decor, DrapeStyle has the perfect pleat for you. Shoot, we could even make a unique pleat just for your own room.

In general terms you want to match your drapery or curtain pleat to your style. If your modern or contemporary choose a grommet pleat. Traditional you will generally go with a French or Parisian pleat. And if you are somewhere in between, or Transitional, than go for the inverted or or box pleat. And, of course, if you just know what the pleat looks like but don’t know it’s name just call us and we can identify it for you.

You may also take some time to look at some great images on Pinterest or Houzz. DrapeStyle has images posted but we can also make anything you see from one of the thousands of Designers who post thier images on these sites. So, just look around and have fun. Once you find the perfect custom curtain or drapery style then just give us a call and send us the pictures. We’ll make it for you from scratch!
