Some Ideas About Drapery Panels
Nothing beats fabric panels when it comes to adding instant warmth and style to a room, and today’s drapery panels have been adapted to fit the way we live. No longer are draperies just considered for their function: panels are making high fashion statements in both formal and informal styles, and with new looks created in luxurious fabrics with texture decorative trim, elegant rods, and accessories
Creative elements are key. Perusing the window treatments aisle in your local home center will reveal a virtual explosion in the number of drapery rod and pole styles available, and will give you great ideas to discuss when you hire a professional installer. To complement new hardware, traditional drapery headings have evolved into sleek styles to include longer pleats with less folds or new goblet shapes. Basic panels can be attached to rods with extra-wide tabs cinched together with tassels, high-contrast ties, or even metal grommets. And when you want to pull the panels back to let the world in, there’s an abundance of imaginative tiebacks available to fit your taste and budget
Creating A Mood With Fabric Panels
When fabric panels outline the edges of a window, the space becomes more comfortable and inviting. The fabric chosen should reflect the mood a room conveys. Luxurious silk reflects formality and enhances the richness of dark woods and silver accessories. Lush textures such as velvets and suede not only evoke feelings of grandeur, but have insulating qualities too. On the other hand, an embroidered sheer or textured linen conveys a sense of casualness, offering offering a relaxed, kick-off-the-shoes feel. When the drapery panels are meant to be the main attraction, opt for a splashy print,plaid, or stripe. If the panels are meant to serve a supporting role, a solid or subtle print that fades into the setting may be better
Making A Statement With Fabric
Drapery panels appear as large expanses of fabric in a room, so the fabric must be selected carefully for the right visual effect. keep the following tips in mind while fabric shopping:
- Prints will look like splashes of color when the the panel is gathered or pleated. When looking at potential candidates, Scrunch the fabric together, and view it from a distance to see how it will look in your home.
- Bold stripes can become lost when a panel is pushed open- the colors will randomly appear in the folds of the panel. Try the scrunch test in the store, or when your in-home designer shows you samples, before deciding on this type of fabric as well.
- Prints with dark background colors, such as black, will make a statement and become immediate focal points in a room.
- The larger the print, the more attention the panels will receive. Toiles. floral prints, and plaids make excellent choices for drapery panels
- Keep the scale of the room in mind when selecting print size. A flamboyant print can overwhelm a room with many windows. A small print may appear out of place in a large room
