Window treatment is an important aspect of decorating your homes. Most people opt for shutters and blinds to help control lighting and privacy. But for people who want to add more colour and life to their homes prefer drapery or curtain. The fabric provides colour, pattern, style and texture, and you have an option of choosing from a wide range of products. It enables you to bring out your creative style and personalize your home. So your home becomes a place which reflects your style and persona. You can be proud to show your family and friends the new look of your home.

A simple solution to improve drafty rooms is to layer high R-rated fabrics and materials over or under existing window coverings. If you already have beautiful custom window fashions in place, how about new, vaned cellular blinds for a layer of heat transfer-stopping beauty. These blinds come in myriad light-controlling densities and color options certain to accent your windows while working hard to save you energy dollars. Other innovative shades and blinds and shutters also offer a vast improvement in heat-retention around your windows, and provide an added layer of beauty as well. Ask me about the incredibly gorgeous, high thermal quality fabrics and linings now available in creating custom draperies for your home. You simply won’t believe that such beautiful materials can also save you money, even in the short term.
For small windows, mini blinds could be your best window treatment alternative. They come in a wide variety of materials like vinyl, aluminum, wood and PVC plastic. Mini blinds can be a great way to decorate a small area due to them being a very inexpensive window treatment, their ease to use, and that they work well in combination with other window covering and blind treatments. They come in a vast combination of colors which makes them easy to blend or highlight an area. Installation is a key factor with mini blinds. Take for instance aluminum mini blinds, when installed properly they are extremely energy efficient, will protect furniture and flooring from those harmful UV rays, and can give great sound absorption. When deciding on your mini blinds a couple of things that you should take into consideration is how will the window blind fit into your room’s decor or what level of privacy you desire.
For instance you may want no light appearing when the blinds are closed and lots of privacy, you will want to choose a mini blind that is not transparent in material choice and closes very flat. But if privacy during the evening hours is not an issue and you want maximum daylight during the day, choosing a sheer mini blind is a beautiful answer to your needs. Overall, mini blinds can be the most cost effective start to your window treatment design and with their combination with other window treatments like curtains, cornices, swags, valances – you will achieve a very professional finish to your window decor that will enhance any rooms appeal.
Drapery is a magic wand for your windows as it can turn it from simple looking to a stylish window. Choosing the right drapery not only enhances the looks of your window but also adds charm to your home. If you wish to go for a complete make over of your house than draperies are an essential part of it. They help in projecting a new outlook of your home. In addition, draperies can be used to make your windows larger. Some consider choosing a drapery for redecorating our home an arduous task.
The harder is the decision making process if it involves the decision of two people. For those who find difficulty in decorating their home, drapery are of great relief as it gives a stylistic touch and makes the room homely and comfortable. There are a wide variety of draperies to choose from. Though draperies are not very costly yet depending on your budget and how much you wish to spend on it you can choose from the wide range.
Windows form an important feature of your establishment. Hence, decorating them using drapery fabrics add some attractiveness and charm to the windows. Drapery fabric hanging to your dining or living room windows will control light, and obscure or enhance a view. Draperies and curtains are usually found in gracefully decorated homes having plenty of space. Drapery fabrics can be adjusted dramatically to meet the requirements of your room.
Types of Drapery Fabrics
Drapery fabrics are the classic and quintessential way to festoon your windows thus adding flair and elegance to all decors. Drapery fabric varieties include acetate, nylon, acrylic blends, polyester, cotton, silk rayon and linen. Select the material type based on its ability to pleat and ruffle. Use your creativity and make your design preference in order to enhance the beauty of your windows.
How to Choose Drapery Fabrics?
There are numerous drapery fabric style and patterns to choose from, hence before making purchasing decision it is always advisable to do some research in order to find the style that will suit your room perfectly. Two important factors that you must consider while choosing drapery fabrics are function and form. Function can be described as how the drapery fabric will be used, and form is what the drapery fabric will appear like. You will find endless assortments of patterns, textures and weights to choose from, hence you must have a clear idea of the qualities of each drapery fabrics – durability, resistance to dirt and ease of cleaning.
Sooner or later, those lovely draperies that you have in your home will have to be cleaned. How they get cleaned and how good they look when they’re done can really vary, depending on what they are made of and whether you pay close attention to cleaning them correctly. Some of them have to be dry-cleaned. Some of them can be washed and dried, but there might be specific requirements as to how this should be done – and how often. One of the things you can do between cleanings, though, to help keep them looking nice, is to vacuum them. Don’t just get your big, upright vacuum cleaner out of the closet and go to it, however. Some of the larger uprights have way too much suction for draperies, even if you use an attachment. Others can work with draperies, but if they are very delicate they can still be damaged.
