Do I Need Draperies in My Home?

When redecorating your home, window treatments probably come to mind as an important aspect of the decorating process. With so many different types on the market, choosing the right product to fit your home’s look and your budget can seem almost impossible. The truth of the matter is, you need to cover your windows, not only for looks, but for privacy and protection from the sun as well, so we’re here today to talk about our favorite option. Do you need draperies in your home? Let’s find out if they’re right for you!

Draperies Add Style

Installing custom draperies can add a hint of style or serious style, depending on your needs. If you’re looking for a more modern approach, large silk panelsare a hot trend in the industry now, either in bright, vibrant colors or soft neutral tones. If you’re leaning toward a more traditional look, draperies with tassels or other ornate hardware can really make the windows pop. Whatever you choose, draperies can really add that element of style to the room to pull it all together.

Long-Lasting & Durable

When shopping for window treatments, you want to look for a product that’s going to last you throughout the years. Custom drapery treatments generally last longer than their mass-produced counterparts and other types of window treatment products on the market. Also, being able to customize your draperies is important. Do you have young children or pets in the home? You may want to consider a more durable, stain-resistant fabric. Be sure to choose a professional that can work with you and your needs, so that your custom drapery treatments can stand the test of time.

Reduce Your Energy Bills

By choosing custom draperies, you are also helping to reduce your energy bills. Choosing a drapery material that is insulated helps to keep the cold air in and that hot, humid air out in the balmy Southwest Florida summer months. Draperies also help to protect your belongings from the sun and offer a great deal of privacy.

Customize & Accessorize

Make your drapery treatments unique to your home by adding in decorative hardware, like finials, rods and more. Being able to customize your draperies is key in achieving the look that you want in your home. Maybe you choose to tone down the color, but add in a touch of style with a specialized drapery rod. You may even choose to add that pop of color with some bright fabrics in one room to provide an accent wall when the draperies are closed.

A Perfect Fit

Choosing to install custom draperies in your home ensures that they will fit your windows perfectly. Since no two windows are exactly the same size, it’s important that your drapery professional expertly measures and installs your draperies to meet your desires. A professional will also ensure that your draperies will hang and function correctly.

You’ve got enough to worry about during the decorating process, don’t let your window treatments hold you back. Remember custom drapery treatments:
