If you have beautiful molding around your window, it is understandable that you don’t want to cover it up. There are several window treatment options to cover and enhance the look of your windows.
Hanging the window treatments above your window will allow to to see the top and the bottom of your window and the molding around it. Hanging your treatments higher also makes your room look larger. Keep in mind the projection of the molding, that is, how far out from the wall does the molding protrude? You will need to purchase hardware brackets that have a projection that will clear the molding. You will also want your custom drapes to have a return about 1/2″ longer than the bracket projection.
Hanging drapery about an inch into the glass will create the illusion that your windows are wider than they are. Skinny windows suddenly become larger because you won’t see where the window begins.
Valances and cornice boards can make short windows appear longer. DrapeStyle can create matching custom valances in any of our 500 fabrics.
If you don’t want to cover up any of your molding, you may want to consider having Roman shades made. This will draw the attention to your windows and put the emphasis on your molding. Try selecting a contrasting color for your shades to really make your molding pop!
Measuring guides are available online, but if you’re still not sure about which option is best for your home, or need a little help determining sizes, please contact us and speak to one of our designers for more information.

DrapeStyle has been making drapes right here in the USA for over a decade. Our seamstresses make each drapery panel to order with quality details you won’t find everywhere. Details like double side-hems, hand-sewn corners, bottom weights and 5 inch buckram headings. At DrapeStyle, we don’t cut-corners. We use the highest quality fabrics, linings and components possible. Maybe that’s why when House and Garden reviewed online drapery retailers they called our draperies “Beautifully Made to Order”.
Please contact us for more information or for a custom quote. Let us help you design your dream drapes, you will be pleased.
At DrapeStyle, we’ve been making draperies for 15 years. It’s something we are very passionate about. The first step we suggest customers take, is to order fabric samples. As we all know, computer monitors can vary in the way they perceive color. We want to be sure you are ordering exactly what you had in mind. By ordering fabric samples, you will be able to see the fabric up close, and in your home’s lighting. A lot of our customers tell me that they tape the fabric samples to the wall near the window they want draperies made! They will live with the samples for a few days and determine which color is best.
Need a little help narrowing down the fabrics? (we have over 600!) Customers are usually drawn towards a particular color or fabric. Do you love texture? I would suggest linen or handwoven linen. Want a dramatic classic look? Take a look at our Dupioni solid and striped silks. Looking for the latest trendy fabric? Check out our designer fabrics; Vern Yip, Sarah Richardson, Celerie Kemble, Candice Olson and more.
Once you have determined which fabric works best for you, take a look at our measuring guide. This will help you determine the best length and width for your draperies.
Which lining do you select? Again we have a guide to help you determine what would work best for your home. But as always, we’re here to answer any questions you may have.
Think you’re ready to place your order? Simply place your order online or contact us for any questions you may have. You will have your custom made drapery in about five weeks. It’s that easy!
