Guide To Drapes For BR Homes

Guide To Drapes For BR Homes

Posted on: March 16th, 2020

Drapes are an important part of your home, but they often become an afterthought in the design process. Drapes are primarily used for controlling room temperatures and AC/heating bills. However, custom drapes are also a simple way to add personality to the entire room! With a fantastic line of high-quality fabrics, the team at STONE is excited to help you find the perfect drapes for your BR home. 

Sun And Shine

Spring is almost here—along with the reminder that the heat is coming to BR. So in case you thought that drapes weren’t important in your new home, think again! Regular curtains aren’t enough for this time of year. In this weather, you need the protection that only comes from heavy, lined fabric blocking the sunlight. They can prevent your home from turning into a sauna. 

Colors, Patterns, And More

Since drapes are a necessity for your Baton Rouge home, take it as an opportunity to express yourself! The fabric and materials come in a great variety of patterns and colors. As we further explore the 2020 trends, we know exactly how important it is for you to incorporate your individuality into your home’s design. 

With a mixture of colors, patterns, and headings, drapes are a great way to make your home look and feel unique. Even use your curtain headings (the part of the curtain that hangs from the rod) to create detail. You might think that you can only choose from the classic heading shapes, such as ripple folds, grommet, flat panel, or tabs. But we can do special heading designs, too. 

Are you looking for classy and sophisticated or funky and bohemian? Well, the headings create the finishing touches to your drapes. When deciding between headings, you need to consider how often you’ll be moving them. A tailor or pinch pleat, back tab, and tie top are great for frequent opening and closing. Also, they don’t easily lose their shape. Yet, a goblet and inverted pleat are a bit more tricky. They may lose their shape if moved too often, so we suggest hanging them as accessories or valance drapes.

Unconventional Uses

Why stop at the windows? You can use drapes to emphasize your personality in every room.

  • Single Pair: Use a single pair to create separation where there was none before. This might be in front of a kid’s playroom, a closet, or even a pantry.
  • Panel Pair: Frame a wall, a painting, or even a bed frame with a panel pair.

And of course, you can’t forget about the valances. Valances are a perfect way to polish off your space. Use valances with full-length drapes, roller blinds, or by themselves.
