Custom Draperies & Decorative HardwareCustom draperies can dramatically change the look of a room. Style is likely your biggest concern, but there’s much more to drapery than just how it looks. There are other things to consider, such as how your draperies filter light, how and if they will open and close,  and what purpose you need them to serve. At Windows & More, serving the Lake Ozark area, our window covering consultants can help you plan and design the perfect custom drapery. From the pattern and fabric to the finishing drapery hardware, you can count on us to help make your design dreams come true!

Popular Styles for Custom Draperies

One of the first steps in choosing your drapery is to hone in on the type of draperies you want in your room. Here are some of the most popular styles for custom drapes:

  • Tab top. A casual look, this drapery style utilizes a decorative rod that goes through flat loops spaced along the top edge of the curtain.
  • Tie top. A casual and relaxed look, tie top drapery has strips of fabric that are sewn and reinforced into the top of the drapery and actually tied to a stationary decorative rod.
  • Ring top. A contemporary look, decorative rings are attached to these drapes to create a pleated look.
  • Pinch Pleat. A more traditional formal look, these draperies are made with a number of pleats.
  • Grommet top. A crisp modern look, these drapes have a rod that passes through large rings at the top of the drapery and creates a broad pleated look.
  • Tab top. A casual look, this drapery style utilizes a decorative rod that goes through flat loops spaced along the top edge of the curtain.
  • Rod pocket. An elegant look, these draperies include a casing at the top that slips over a curtain rod. Rod pocket panels are usually made with sheers or semi-sheer fabric.

Styles of Drapery Hardware

Drapery hardware can either be hidden within the drapery style, or used as a decorative element. Here are some of your options:

  • Decorative holdbacks. These usually match the decorative drapery rod or pole and are mounted on the sides of the windows to hold the drapery or curtain panels open.
  • Decorative poles. Frequently used with tab-top, grommet top, tie top and ring top, decorative poles come in a large variety of of materials, styles, colors and finishes, including wood, brass or iron with capped ends with decorative finials.
  • Traverse rod. Used with heavier traditional pinch-pleat drapes, these rods are more function than decoration, and can be motorized.
  • Decorative rod with clip rings. Used for movable drapery panels, clip rings move and slide smoothly over rod.
  • Double or triple rods. Additional rods are used when you are going to combine drapery panels with a valance. If you add sheers as an under treatment, these go on the third rod.
