Custom draperies and curtains allow you to add a splash of personality to any space in your home. They can help to create a particular ambiance along while allowing you to regulate the amount of natural light that is filtered into the room and the amount of privacy desired.
Although many people utilize the terms curtains and drapes interchangeably, they actually have very subtle differences. Curtains are typically the same length as the window and are usually lighter and less formal in appearance. Drapes, on the other hand, are floor length and appear heavier and more formal. Both window treatments are available in a variety of styles, fabrics and colors. At A Shade Above, our experts can help you with designing your custom curtains or drapes by helping you choose the fabric, color and style that best suits your needs.
The Sash curtain is probably the most common type of curtain. You may have even grown up in a home with sash curtains. Their primary purpose is to filter the natural light coming in as they are usually unlined. They can offer a splash of color to any room providing a more refined look.
If you want to create a more informal feel to your room then café style curtains may be what you are looking for. These curtains cover a particular portion of the window allowing a designated section of light in. They do not offer a high degree of privacy but allow a large amount of light to enter the space.
Sheer curtains are an excellent choice if you are wanting a translucent, light filtering feeling kind of light control for your space. However, these curtains provide very little privacy and do not block a lot of light. They are perfect for blocking the view into the room from the outside while not totally obstructing the view from the inside.
Gathered curtains or drapes allow you to change the look of any room very easily. They are extremely versatile – tie them back when less privacy is needed or let them fall together when more privacy is desired. They can be pleated in a variety of ways to allow versatility on a daily basis.
Adding decorative elements to your custom drapes can help you make a statement. Adding a swag, which is a piece of pleated material, across the top of the treatment adds a nice design element. Using a valance in conjunction with your custom curtains or drapes can help to hide any hardware that you may not want to be seen. Our professionals can help you determine whether adding a decorative treatment to your custom window treatment is something that you should consider.
