Why should you choose drapes?
Whether you’re looking for classic elegance, eclectic chic, or a modern contemporary feel, the right type of curtain can make an impact in every room. They can offer a luxurious, soft finish to your interiors that’s hard to recreate using another window furnishing.
In addition to the exciting and endless visual opportunities they offer, there are many practical reasons which make drapes a wise choice in residential spaces. In bedrooms, they offer great light and heat control by blocking any drafts or heat loss via your windows. They’re also one of the best window treatments for improving your home’s insulation. In fact, drapes can preserve up to 20% of the total heat in your home. That’s great for everyone and the environment.
In a dining room or formal lounge area, they can work just as well, especially if you have a large or tall window, to create a cozy yet elegant atmosphere. They can work well with matching pelmets or built-in pelmets. Alternatively, decorative tracking or rods can also be a feature for your curtain and give it a stylish finish.
Drapes also provide excellent light control. On top of that, they can also help with privacy and reduce outside noise levels. These qualities make it effortless to control your home environment so that it matches the occasion or your mood.
Popular curtain and drape solutions
Sheers are lightweight, light-filtering fabrics that hang softly over your windows to create a feeling of cool ambience mixed with elegance. They diffuse sunlight while adding warmth to the room and providing privacy.
These are perfect to use on their own. Alternatively, it can be used in a layered window solution by layering a beautiful, soft sheer over a blockout roller blind or plantation shutters to add a modern element of texture and movement.
The heading refers to the top piece at the curtain that attaches to the curtain rod or track. There are various heading styles to choose from that can change the overall look of your curtains. The choice of heading will also determine the choice of track or rod.
For example, S-fold or wave fold have found favour among Australian homeowners because they have a modern flowing effect and create a wonderful modern touch.
Homes that have curtain tracks instead of rods are spoilt for choice. From pinch pleats for a formal look to pencil pleats for a less structured, more modern look.
Motorised curtain tracks
For extra functionality and convenience, motorised curtain tracks can be a good investment. With the guarantee of excellent longevity, motorised curtain tracks offer quality and smooth performance. They’re great for tall windows, modern settings, dance halls, stages, schools, and aged care and retirement villages.
