Everyone wants to have a home that looks attractive and appealing. However, creating the perfect look for your home décor can sometimes be challenging. But there is no need to worry; this is where I can help. Transforming a plain room into an impressive space does not always need to be complicated.
Understanding where to focus your attention is a great place to get started when transforming your home. You see, some aspects of your home’s interior design can have an especially strong influence on the overall look and feel of the space. So, paying special attention to these areas of the design is particularly crucial. Your choice of drapery panels is the perfect example of this.
The drapery panels you choose can make or break the look of the room. Windows are a feature in a room that immediately draws the eye. This makes it crucial to ensure that the window is dressed with a window treatment that sets the tone for the rest of the décor. Every room of the house deserves beautiful drapery panels. The right choice of drapery panel can elevate the look of the entire space, providing an attractive focal point for the room.
I have put together these useful tips to help you select the perfect drapes for your living space.
Here is how to choose the best drapery panels for your home:
Select Custom Drapery Panels
Selecting custom drapery panels is the best way to achieve the most impressive results from your window treatment. If you are looking for drapes that offer a wow factor and add an instant injection of style to your room, selecting custom drapes is the way to do it. The difference between regular store-bought drapery panels and custom drapes is vast, so opting for custom-made drapes is always an excellent choice.
Opting for store-bought drapes limits your choices. When you start shopping for drapes, you will likely see the same or similar designs available in each store that you visit. However, when you choose custom drapes, the only limit is your imagination. Buying ready-made drapes from the store is fine if you want drapery panels that look just the same as those in every other house on the street. But, if you want your individuality and sense of style reflected in your interior design, then selecting custom drapes is the best choice.
If you choose custom drapery panels, I will work with you to establish your preferred aesthetic and how your drapes will fit with the overall design scheme for the space. Once I have an idea of the type of look you wish to achieve, I will provide you with a selection of beautiful designs for you to choose from.
Pick Your Panel Style
One of the biggest benefits of choosing custom drapery panels is the many different panel styles that are available. The panel style refers to the top of the drape and its decorative finish. Pleated draperies are available in a range of variations, each offering an elegant look for your home. Pleats instantly provide your drapes with an upscale finish.
If you are looking for a window treatment that packs a powerful style statement, rod-pocket tops and cuffed tab tops are ideal options to bring an extra-special decorative touch to the room. But, for a contemporary, understated look, grommet tops and flat panel drapes are an ideal choice.
Consider Your Fabric Choices
As well as selecting the perfect color scheme for your drapes, it is also vital to choose the right fabric. Drapery fabrics vary from light and sheer materials to heavy and formal designs. Which of these you choose will depend on what you are hoping to achieve from your drapes on a functional level.
If you want to let lots of light into the room and add a subtle window treatment, drapery panels made from light, sheer fabrics are an ideal choice. Heavier fabrics are a perfect choice if you want to create a ‘blackout’ effect and keep the sunlight from flooding the room. Drapes made from heavy fabrics can also be good for insulating a space.
Many heavier fabrics provide the space with an opulent look. This is ideal if you are hoping to add a touch of luxury to your interior with your choice of drapes. If you have a busy household, choosing drapes made from easy-to-clean performance fabrics is an excellent idea and will keep your drapes looking like new.
