Why Custom Draperies Are Always the Right Choice

When decorating your home, there are a lot of considerations to be had— these can generally separate into groups of "wants" and "needs." Often, it can be challenging to tackle the two together! 

Thankfully, custom draperies are one of the options where you don't have to make any sacrifices. There is such a wide array of fabrics, patterns, and design options available that you can always marry function and fashion to your heart's content. 

Benefits of Custom Drapery

Whether buying new clothes or a new car, the best ones always have customization options to tailor to you and your lifestyle. Custom drapery works the same way— it can fit any window, no matter its size. A custom drapery company will take measurements and create a unique design that fits your windows perfectly.

Custom drapery offers the following options: 

  • Aesthetic Appeal - Drapery should always match the decor of your home. You choose the color and fabric pattern you want, allowing your drapes to complement styles from bohemian to modern. 
  • Durability - The custom nature of drapery allows it to fade from fashion long before it will fade from use. Drapes have high-quality fabrics built to last. 
  • Privacy - Whether you're shopping for sheer curtains or blackout, the privacy they offer will protect you and those in your home. 
  • Noise control- If you live near a busy roadway or have children, pets, or noisy neighbors, the soundproofing qualities of custom draperies can be very beneficial. Depending on your needs, this may mean that you need heavy-duty fabric (such as velvet) to keep out sounds from outside. 

Types of Drapery

Drapery offers many different styles, depending on your chosen fabric. Consider sheer, semi-sheer, and heavy curtains.

There are also different design options, including pleated draperies, pinch pleats, pencil pleats, and more!

How Much Does Custom Drapery Cost?

Cost is always a factor when purchasing new draperies, but it shouldn't be the only determining factor in your decision. Custom-made drapes are the way to go if you want drapery that will last for years and add elegance to your room. The cost of these drapes can vary greatly depending on what fabric you choose and how many windows there are in your home. 

There's no question that custom-made curtains can be expensive; however, the investment will pay off over time and add value and beauty to your home. The trick is finding an experienced professional who understands what factors should go into creating quality drapes at affordable prices.
