Our team at Classic Blinds & Shutters Design Center knows that the perfect drapes can transform room a room from simple to stunning. Consider adding drapery if you feel like your space is unfinished, but you can’t quite figure out the reason why. This elegant feature will provide function and beauty—and they’ll really tie that room together.
The terms drapes and curtains are often used interchangeably. Many people don’t know the difference between the two - or that there even is a difference! So, what is it, and why does it matter?
The main difference between drapes and curtains is the material thickness. Most curtains are thin, with many even being sheer. While they might aid with privacy and light filtration, curtains seldom provide enough coverage to block all outside light from entering. On the other hand, drapes are made from substantial fabrics, such as satin, cotton, or velvet. Most drapes are backed with an additional liner to ensure maximum privacy and light filtration.
Drapes are also more formal than curtains. Whereas curtains can act as a light and playful decor element, drapery elevates the existing decor. Often extending floor to ceiling, drapery is an elegant and luxurious addition to any room.
Our customers often want to add drapes as a new decor element. With our custom design services, this is no problem at all! The expert team at Classic Blinds and Shutters Design Center will listen to your design concerns and carefully select options for you to choose from. Whether you’re looking to continue your minimalist dreams or add some extra flair with a fun print, we have all the options you’ll ever need.
Browse from a variety of colors and patterns to find the perfect fit. If designer prints are more your style, shop exclusive patterns from renowned designers with the Hunter Douglas Design Studio™. Trendsetting artists Marcie Bronkar, Seema Krish, and Rebecca Atwood’s hand-designed embroideries and prints will make a statement in any room.
Other than design, many of our customers add drapery for the function. You may be looking for light filtration, extra privacy, or even to block out unwanted noise. The right drapes can solve all of these issues.
If you’ve ever been lying in bed trying to fall asleep, kept awake by a thin sliver of light seeping through the crack in your blinds, then you understand the importance of blackout drapes. Lined with fabric, drapes provide excellent light filtration. They can block out all outside light, making your room dark and cozy and helping you get a good night’s sleep. In addition to blocking out unwanted light, drapes can also keep your space more secure and private by preventing anyone from looking in through your windows.
