Not sure where to begin searching for drapes for your home? Hoping to make a statement with your living or dining room drapes, but you have no idea how to do that? Fortunately, this guide can help. Whether you decide to buy custom drapes or you just want to grab an off-the-shelf choice, there are many things you can do to land on those perfect drapes.
It All Starts With the Right Fabric
The best window treatments for the dining room or any room in your house are those that work with your decor. Your fabric choice should complement the style you have right now. More than that, though, you’ll want to be sure it’s a functional choice for that room. Imagine, for example, you’re looking for the perfect drapes for your industrial style dining room. You’re going to want to choose a fairly neutral, lightweight fabric to play with that, but the chances are good that you’re going to want a fabric that allows enough light into the space. If, on the other hand, you’re trying to select a fabric for the drapes in your bedroom, you might not only want to look for the right colors, but also something that gives you a bit more privacy. You likely also want a denser fabric to help block some light as you try to sleep.
Length Matters Too
What might begin with the perfect fabric could go wrong if you don’t select the right length for your custom drapes. Keep in mind that hanging panels a bit higher than you need them to be means making your window look bigger. The length will also depend a bit on the room’s current style. Modern looks have drapes right at the floor. More traditional looks have them hitting the floor in a bit of a puddle.
