Curtains & Draperies Buying Guide

Bare windows look unfinished in most home settings. The popular solution for centuries has been hanging curtains or drapes -- a quick update that creates privacy, adds visual warmth, and provides color and pattern that can inspire a color scheme for the whole room. 

Types of Curtains & Draperies

Types of Curtains & Draperies

Many homeowners think of curtains and draperies as interchangeable terms for the same concept, but purists see several distinctions. Curtains are typically made from lightweight fabrics, they are usually unlined, and they hang to the windowsill. Draperies are sewn from heavier, more formal fabrics that are often lined for body, and they extend to the floor. Curtains and draperies -- as well as accessory treatments -- suit many decorating styles; variables in fabric tone and texture, as well as how the fabric is suspended from the window hardware, affect the overall look.

Curtains

Casual and informal, curtains range from ruffled sheers to homespun checks, with solids, prints, and novelty designs in between. They're typically constructed with fabric tabs, pockets, or decorative rings, shirred on a pole, and opened and closed by hand.

Draperies

Stylistically suited to living rooms, dining rooms, and other formal spaces, draperies feature dressier fabrics that are often pleated and hung by hooks from a traverse rod, which allows the draperies to open and close via a cord mechanism. Others use grommets or clips to hang on a plain rod.

Valances

These window treatments create a polished, designer-look treatment; make a window look taller; or simply hide unsightly hardware. Valances work well over curtains, blinds, or shades, or even on their own.

Scarves, Swags & Jabots

Just as they accessorize clothing, scarves accent windows. This simple valance drapes a narrow length of soft or sheer fabric over a decorative rod or brackets to crown a window without blocking light. Standard scarves are 6 feet long; look for 3- or 4-foot lengths for a small window. A similar horizontal treatment using heavier or lined fabric and more structure is called a swag. For formality, layer another panel -- a jabot -- over or under the swag to vertically frame the window as far down as you like.

Narrowing your choices in curtains and draperies starts with how these treatments are made and how you want them to perform. It may take a little shopping time to find your ideal blend of form and function, but luckily the marketplace includes many choices sure to tick all the boxes on your checklist.

Fabric Type

Acrylic and polyester offer better fade resistance than other fibers. Cotton, rayon, and acetate are somewhat less durable in a sunny window. Airy panels of lightweight fabrics such as lace or voile make a delicate statement, while opaque velvet or microsuede suggest warmth. In between you'll find dozens of natural- and synthetic-fiber fabrics.

Color & Pattern

The most decorative aspect of curtains and draperies, color and pattern options are almost unlimited. Some manufacturers also sell matching fabric by the yard for easy coordination with upholstery fabric.

Blackout & Thermal Liners

Protect your curtains or draperies from fading and help keep out sun, cold, and heat with custom lining panels that attach with buttons or hook-and-loop tape. You can also buy liners separately in standard sizes; these often hang from the pole or rod by their own fabrication or hardware.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

Buying curtains and draperies involves a series of choices based on function and fashion. Start with the window type and location -- both the room it's in and the exposure it enjoys -- and consider your privacy needs, your decorating preferences, and your budget.

Location

Where privacy is a concern, choose densely woven fabric, add a lining, or plan to install curtains or drapes over a window shade.

Size/Length

Do as the professional designers do and carefully measure the length and width of each window and its frame. Double or triple the width to make sure your curtains or drapes meet without gaping and display a comfortable fullness. Round up to the next size for finished curtains or drapes. Deciding length -- sill height or to the floor -- is up to you, but don't worry if the ready-made draperies you find fall somewhere in between. Buy something longer and have it hemmed; check your dry cleaner for leads. A few visual tricks: Make a small window look taller or wider by installing curtains or draperies beyond the frame. Hang floor-length curtains above the window frame to suggest a higher ceiling.

Style/Color/Fabric

Once you decide whether you prefer curtains or draperies, and once you envision the mood you'd like to convey through style and construction, these considerations will lead you to a few particular fabric choices. Cotton and linen curtains are more casual and should be lined if you want more body. Sheer draperies are lovely complements to floral furniture, and crisply pleated treatments look appropriate with contemporary architecture. Dramatic drapes of silk or taffeta offer high-style sheen; drapes made from these fabrics suggest formality and puddle beautifully.

Ready-Made or Custom

Ready-made curtains and draperies come in widths to fit the most common window sizes and shapes, as well as in a wide variety of colors, patterns, and fabrics. If you have an unusual shape or size window or wish to match fabric used elsewhere in the room, custom versions provide unlimited possibilities at a higher price.
