Drapes for Shorter Windows

The majority of windows in homes are actually custom sizes. This is why ready-made drapes rarely fit your windows properly. Investing in custom drapes is very important because they are made to perfectly fit the exact size of your windows. One trick to make a shorter window appear larger is to use longer drapes. Install the rods and finials just below your ceiling and allow the panels to “puddle” or hang down extra long on the floor. This will create the illusion of height, making your entire space feel more open and inviting. No matter what shape and size your windows are, can create custom drapes that will make your windows hide its flaws.

Benefits of custom drapes

The following are just a few reasons to choose custom drapes and curtains over store bought:

  1. The lining can make the difference. Custom drapes are typically lined making them fuller and heavier whereas unlined store bought curtains are not lined. Of course, there are some store bought curtains that are lined but most of them are lined with thin low-thread count fabric. standard lining is made of 50% cotton and 50% polyester. The cotton makes it soft to the touch and the polyester allows it to block the sun in the best way possible making your drapes more durable and longer lasting.

  2. Tailored to your specific requirements. Custom drape means you get exactly what you want. You get the exact style, the exact size, the exact color. They are made to fit your windows and doors avoiding the need to pin loosely fitting drapes. Store bought window treatments are designed for the masses and it is often difficult to find the exact style, color and size needed forcing you to settle with something that doesn’t necessarily match your specific needs. Some of the custom drapes offers are pinch pleated, tab top, grommet and so much more. We carry a wide variety of fabrics in many shades, colors and textures giving you endless custom options that most store bought curtains don’t offer.

  3. Wise investment. The average person keeps their custom drapery more than severs years whereas store bought one’s typically need to be replaced every two years. custom lined drapes will last a lifetime and we stand by that fact with a "Lifetime Warranty" that guarantees your drape will be free from defects due to faulty workmanship or materials forever.

  4. Value. Custom drapes pay for themselves over the years. It also increases your home value. Purchasing directly from our factory allows you to cut out the middle-man for enormous savings.

Decorating your Living Room for Thanksgiving

The living room is usually the room that guests first see. This is the reason why you want your living room to give a Thanksgiving welcome with its style and decor. A thanksgiving theme would include fall autumn colors such as deep reds, warm oranges, golden yellows, earthy browns and forest greens. You can also create the feeling of fall by using pine cones, acorns, gourds and pumpkins to create centerpieces and decorative accents. One of the easiest ways to transform your living room for Thanksgiving is to change the color of your drapes into a richer fall color. If you have blinds, you can hang a drape on top of it to create a more cozy feeling in your home. You can also purchase or make your own fall wreath using branches, twigs and fall leaves to hang on your wall.

Decorating your living room for Thanksgiving is a great way to celebrate the changing seasons. Involve everyone in your household and get into the holiday spirit.

Puddle drapes

Puddle Drapes are drapes that hang down extra long and gather on the floor below the window. This style of length creates a beautiful, flowing look which is great for formal dining rooms and living rooms.

Drapes puddled in the old days as a means for the rich family to show how wealthy they are, that they could afford to puddle expensive fabrics on the floor. This “mid-century” look is now becoming popular with boutique hotels because of its elegance and luxurious look.

If you prefer for your drapes to puddle, use a height that is 6-10 inches beyond the floor or carpeting. Generally we only recommend puddling for decorative drapes. If your drapes are going to be opened and closed regularly, puddling is not recommended as the bottoms of the drapes will get dirty very quickly or even ruined.

Factory Direct Drapes™ Puddle Drapes are available in hundreds of fabrics and styles. Add blackout lining for superior insulation and privacy.
