The most classic and common of all methods of hanging curtains, a rod pocket is a sewn-in pocket, or casing, at the top of a curtain panel that easily slips over a rod and conceals it.
Curtain panels hung this way bunch nicely and have a simple, casual look. All of DrapeStyle’s curtain panels can be hung using this method, and you don’t need any additional pieces or hardware (aside from your rod and finials) to make this look work.
One thing to consider is how often you’ll want to open and close your panels. For curtains you will be opening and closing a lot, you may want to consider another pleat style, as rod pockets tend to be a little stubborn to adjust as the fabric rests directly on the curtain rod. And if your curtains are very long, you may not be able to reach the top of the curtain to open and close them.
Rod Pockets work well with layered window coverings. Valances hung above the curtain hide the rod even when the curtain is open. Sheers can be mounted under the main panels. Casement curtains are often used on French doors and sidelights. Rods slip through casements at the top and bottom of the panels so that the curtains can be secured to the top and bottom of a window. Sheers are often used for this window treatment, providing privacy while allowing light to come through.
DrapeStyle constructs a 3″ rod pocket as our standard. Since we are a custom workroom, let us know if you need something made a little differently. In our experience, the 3″ rod pocket is a pretty standard size as most customers will use a round 1″ or 1 1/2″ diameter curtain rod. A 3” rod pocket should be used on a standard 2 1/2” continental or dauphine rod or on a decorative rod up to 1 1/2″. By selecting the rod pocket as your pleat style, you won’t need to purchase curtain rings, saving you a bit of money.
Stylish and classic, DrapeStyle’s rod pocket curtains will look beautiful in your home for years to come.
Need to get away but don’t have the time for a vacation? Want to escape a busy work day? Get lost in a book! And let DrapeStyle help you create the perfect reading nook in your own home.
Set up a spot near a sunny window or bookshelf for curling up with a book. A window seat is the perfect potential reading nook. Add a shelf with some of your favorite reads. Add a comfy cushion, a few pillows and blankets to make it cozy.
Make sure there is adequate lighting. If there isn’t enough natural light, hang a couple of sconces or add a floor lamp to the sitting area.
Kids rooms are the perfect place to create a reading space. Instilling good reading habits early will carry them through life.
Creating places to sit and read will tempt adults and children away from the call of online living and into a book instead. DrapeStyle is a custom workroom that has years of experience in making draperies, window cushions and pillows, that can help you create your own private reading nook.
