I rarely post comments on websites like this, but in this case, it is warranted. Rod Ladman’s excellent customer service deserves a special mention to anyone considering high-end/custom blinds. I’m a homeowner in the Lakes Region, and I first bought my Hunter Douglas motorized shades from Rod Ladman more than a decade ago. Rod did a professional job with the initial measuring and installation, as you might expect. Where Rod has distinguished himself, however, has been in his sustained level of excellent customer service AFTER THE SALE. Over the years, I have had very few instances when my Hunter Douglas blinds have needed services – only three, in fact. But when I have needed help, Rod has been responsive and timely in getting the blinds in great working order under the original warranty. I give him high marks, and I’m confident others will too.

Drapes and Curtains – Is there a difference between them?

While people use the terms Drapes and Curtains interchangably, they are, in reality, two different types of window treatment. So you may ask, “What are the differences between them exactly?” Let’s try break down Curtains versus Draperies, and how to choose the right one for your residence, Everyone will be impressed that you understand the difference!.

So, Curtains are sold by the panel or in pairs, and are generally installed over shades or blinds. They hang down from curtain rods, and they extend to the windowsill or to the floor, and are typically made from lighter materials, and they can be room darkening and even blackout. Drapes are created from thicker fabrics and have liners which help block out more light. Aesthetically, they are considered more of a formal window covering and they extend to, or even “puddle” at the floor.

Configurations of Curtains

With single panel curtains, each panel is made of from one piece of fabric. This is why they are considered ideal are for sliding glass doors.

With curtains that are “panel pair”, the material comes in matching pairs, which allows you to hang the 2 pieces of fabric on either side of a window. This configuration allows you to determine the amount of light you want to let in.

A window scarf is really designed more for decoration, They don’t block out any light, and they are draped over the curtain rod. They can be hung singly, or paired with panel pair curtains. They are often window sill length or they can extend down to the floor.

Liners are made primarily to block out the light and they are used in conjunction with a curtain. You can either hang them on a second curtain rod behind your curtains, or, if you wish, hook them to curtain rings and then attach them to the same curtain rod as your curtains.
