Glenda Valentine. Drapes. February 26th , 2018.
Measuring for Custom Drapes is not a complicated process, and if you measure per the above, you shouldnt have a problem with the Custom Drapes fit. However, keep in mind what sort of Custom Drape Rod you will be using. Rods include those with finials, balls or decorative end caps. The main rule when measuring with a decorative custom rod is to not include the measurement of the finial; ball or end cap or to overlap at the centre of your custom drapes rod. Standard placement is calculated on the basis that the ends of the custom drape rod should normally extend past the window opening/casing by 3 inches on both sides for the width. This should allow you to firmly anchor your drape rod into the wood window framing beneath the sheetrock.
The more pleats you have, the greater is the stacking space they require when opened. Curtains, many times, have no pleats and more times than not, remain closed. If they are opened, many drapes have no pinch pleats or very thin ones and take up very little space when open. Drapes require a lot more space when open because the fabric is much thicker, especially if lined. In a limited space, if drapes are to be used, they should be draped and tied back in a stationary position for maximum open exposure.
If you need to clean up your drapes in a hurry, you can take them down and remove all pins and hooks. Place the drapes in your dryer on the airdry or airfluff setting along with three scented dryer sheets and run the dryer for about 15 minutes. This will remove dust and loose dirt from your drapes while leaving them with a pleasant scent. This is not the most thorough cleaning technique, but it will suffice if you are in a rush. Drapes are basically long curtains. They are used to dress the windows up. Window coverings come in so many varieties these days that it may be hard to decide what you want.
It will also help if you have a style hanging in your home already that you like, and want the person making the drapes to copy. Any ideas that you can give about the style you are looking for will help them in the process of making your drapes to your specifications. You may even want to flip through some magazines and cut out pictures of the styles that are similar to what you are looking for. When you have custom drapes made, you have the ability to have drapes like no one else has. Make sure that you choose someone that is a professional custom sewer, and can actually do the job that you are looking for.
Several brands offer beautifully fashioned panels which contain a natural variation. This gives the linen a oneofakind character. Another style that would never go out of style is the linen drape with classic borders. These are drapes in which the primary fabric make up 75 percents of the entire length and a border fabric, like silk or linen in a complementing shade will constitute the rest. Whatever be the decor of your place, you can craft a combination which will add to the grace of it. It will give your home a traditional quality at an economical price. With their magnificent textures and peerless durability, linen drapes are sure to impart a unique feel to your bedrooms and living areas.
