Determining Drapery Hardware

Drapery hardware can be a little tricky but it doesn’t have to be difficult. With a little help from DrapeStyle, you can have beautiful window treatments and hardware.

You should really know how you are going to hang your drapes before you have custom drapes made. First determine how you will use your drapes. Will the drapes be decorative? Then you don’t necessarily need one long drapery rod for your window. Consider two shorter rods that will keep your drapes perfectly placed.

If your drapes are to be functional, you will need them to slide from side to side. If the drapes are very long, then you may need a traverse rod with a cord that will allow you to open and close the drapes. Traverse rods are also great for when wall mounting the rod is not an option. Hanging drapes from the ceiling is very on trend and can help with problems like by passing molding that protrudes from wall or heating elements that are below the window.

Of course traditional drapery hardware with a drapery rod and rings will also work for draperies that are functional. With most draperies, you will want to purchase a center bracket to help support the weight of the draperies.

Make your space look bigger and more luxurious by hanging drapes at least 12 inches above the window frame or all the way to the ceiling and extending your curtain rod out three to six inches on each side.

Do you have a spectacular view you don’t want to obstruct? Then you’ll want the drapes to stack off the glass, meaning that when the drapes are open, they won’t cover up any part of the window. So take this into consideration when selecting the length of your drapery rod.

Which ever look you are going for, DrapeStyle can help you select the style of drapery hardware that will best suit your needs. Please contact DrapeStyle for more information or visit our website for the most up to date information on the hardware collections we offer.

Ideas for Tall Windows

 

blue-3

 

 

You decided on the house with the big, beautiful, panoramic windows. But now what? The windows are dramatic and provide amazing views but can be somewhat of a challenge when it comes to buying custom curtains or drapes. If you visit the typical retailers you are probably not going to find drapery that will cover extra long windows. Most retailers won’t have drapes that go beyond 120 inches. And that’s where DrapeStyle comes in. Everything we make is custom made, so yes, we can make drapes for your windows.           Any width.  Any length. Any fabric.

 

Do your tall windows offer an incredible view that you don’t want to obstruct? Consider adding sheers to your windows.  DrapeStyle carries sheers in several different colors, style and fabrics so you are sure to find one that works for you. Sheers can add drama and softness to a room, without breaking the bank. Whether you are looking for a classic sheer or something more modern, DrapeStyle has plenty of reasonably priced sheers to choose from.

Another option for adding a little color and pattern to your windows, would be decorative panels. Drapes that do not open and close, they instead are stationary and provide much needed color to the walls.

Need privacy? Consider adding our sateen privacy lining or for a truly room darkening effect, add blackout lining. Perfect for darkening the room when you want to watch a movie or take a nap.

 

So where do you start? We suggest that you go through our fabric samples and select a few that you like. You will receive your samples within a few days and you will be able to see for yourself how each fabric looks in your home, in your light. Then, check out our measuring guide to determine the best fit for your window. Or, if you need a little help, please contact us.
