Functional Drape and Curtain Ideas
When you think of Curtains and Drapes, the word “decorative” might come to mind. And, while it’s certainly true that Curtains and Drapery Panels can add extra style to any interior, they may serve many practical purposes as well.
Keep Out the Cold
Those choosing window treatments for homes in cold climates should consider pairing Cellular Shades with luxurious, floor-length Drapery Panels. This combination acts as a blanket for the home, and adds a warm coziness that just can’t be gotten from Mini Blinds.
Light and Privacy
In kitchens, an abundance of natural light is generally considered a good thing. After all, you want to be able to see what you’re cooking, and there’s nothing like eating your morning oatmeal in the sun. Café-length Curtains provide a dash of pizzazz, just enough privacy, and a great view of the morning sky.
Warmth and Elegance
The combination of Sheer Curtains and opulent, 200% fullness Drapes can make for a stately, elegant living room. The Drapes provide privacy at night and insulate the home. Sheer Curtains allow light in during the day, and protect the Drapes from the dust that might get in when the windows are open.
A Cocoon of Respite
In bedrooms, Drapes can be fitted with our room-darkening liner, which can be used to eliminate the light gap around the outside edges of other window treatments, such as Roller Shades or Honeycomb Blinds. This is also useful in media rooms, where you don’t want stray sunbeams ruining you and your family’s cinematic experience.
Just Enough Sunshine
A light-filtering liner can be added to Curtains and Drapes located in rooms that receive a little too much sun. These types of linings typically pay for themselves, as they reduce cooling costs, and protect furniture and carpet from damaging UV rays.
