How to Select the Right Drapery for Your Calgary Home

Drapery is so much more than just window dressing. They can form the basis of a room’s whole look and atmosphere. Of course, they’re practical too, offering privacy, warmth an energy saving benefits. However, with so many fabrics, patterns and styles to choose from it can take time to find the right one for your space.

Ready-made curtains are an easy update if you’re working with a smaller budget or a tight time frame. They come ready to hang from the shop so you won’t have to wait for makers and fitters. You will, however have to take your own window measurements and are available in limited size options. Also, the linings used for ready-made curtains are generally of lower quality than those of made-to-order.

Opting for custom draperies lets you tailor the material, pattern, color and style to your own requirements. With custom made service you can be confident your drapes will be the best fit for your window. In addition, having a wider choice of fabrics means you’ll have a greater ability to put your own stamp on the design. A qualified window covering designer can help you choose correct widths, lengths, pleats and headings to achieve the look you want.

Your draperies will not be complete without the right lining for your lifestyle. Blackout lining, for example, will block much of the light that would otherwise come through closed curtains. For nighttime workers, parents with babies and theater rooms, blackout is an essential element. They also provide insulation, thus energy saving benefits, as well as reducing noise from outside.
