Buying your Dream Drapes at Half Price – The Perfect Formula!

Thursday, August 27th, 2009

Since we began DrapeStyle nearly 10 years ago, our mission has never wavered. When you are looking to purchase your perfect set of custom made dream drapes you can get them here at half price of what you would expect to pay from a typical Designer. It is important, however, to point out that not all half price drapes are created equal. Many online “discounters” who claim to be selling a quality curtain at half price are typically selling “cheap” poorly made curtains which are imported. These typical “ready-made” curtains are made using low quality lining, material and construction.

When your looking for your dream drape it pays to dig a little deeper and understand the construction and quality of materials that are going into your drapery. Consider the weight of the silk or linen used, the quality and weight of the lining and interlining. Finally, consider if your next set of drapery are made. While some may consider buying American Made Drapery Noble, others find it Practical. Should Mrs. Smith ever need her window treatments hemmed or repaired in the future She may find that buying from a US Manufacturer is more than just noble.
