Curtains That Fit Your Style

Your Guide to Drapes

Drapes are an essential piece of a home’s decor. Aside from adding to the interior design of the home, they also provide insulation, keep out the cold, block the sun, and add privacy to any room. But with so many different options and styles available, it can be hard to know which ones are right for your home. This guide will teach you everything you need to know about drapes, from the designs available to the best ways to hang them.
There are two main types of drapes: ready-made and custom-made.

    1. Ready-made drapes come in standard sizes and can be easily fitted to most windows
  • 2. Custom drapes and curtains are made to measure for any window size.

For custom window treatments in Denver or Greenwood Village, contact Woven today! We offer a wide variety of customized pinch pleat drapes to match any decorative style or decor.

Pinch Pleat Curtains and Drapes

Pinch pleat drapery and curtains are among the most popular styles. They are made with small, evenly spaced pleats that create a polished look with functional style. These drapery panels can be made from a variety of colors and fabrics, including sheer linen, cotton, silk, and some heavier upholstery-grade materials. These pinch-pleated drapes are often used in formal dining or living room settings.

Pinch Pleat Benefits

Pinch-pleated curtains and drapes are still a very popular choice for window treatments. Although their popularity varies with fashion trends, pinch pleats are a timeless design for drapery. They are now commonly seen in bedrooms, family rooms, and formal living spaces.

Types of Pinch Pleat Styles

There are three types of 2 pinch pleats: Tacked at the top, center-tacked, and tacked at the bottom.

Ripple Fold Drapery and Curtains

Ripple-fold drapes and curtains feature large, evenly spaced folds and a consistent s-curve across the length of the track. They have a clean and modern look. This style is often used in banquet rooms and hotels in hospitality areas.

Ripple Fold Track System

Ripple fold drapes are hung from a special track system that allows the fabric to ripple evenly across the window’s width. The track system features a series of carriers that hold the fabric in place. The carriers are connected to a glider, which moves along the track and creates the rippling effect.

Ripple fold vs. Wave Fold

Ripple fold and wave fold drapes are similar. One key difference is wave fold drapes have a consistent wavy pattern, while ripple fold drapes have a consistent s-curve. Ripple fold drapes are more popular because they provide a cleaner look.

Grommet Drapes and Curtains

Grommet drapes feature large rings at the top. This style is hung on a curtain rod, making it easy to open and close the drapes. Grommet drapes have a clean and modern look.

Grommet Ring Sizes

Grommet or curtain rings come in a variety of sizes, from small to large. The size of the ring will determine the diameter of the opening.

Motorized Drapery

Motorized drapes offer several benefits over traditional drapes. They are easy to open and close, even for large windows. They can be controlled remotely, making them convenient to use. They are also a perfect option for difficult-to-reach windows. Motorized drapes provide privacy and natural light control and can even help reduce energy costs, as they can be programmed to open and close at specific times of the day.

Drape Fabrics

You can make drapery from various fabrics, including silk, cotton, linen, polyester, and velvet.

Blackout Drapes and Curtains

This style is the perfect solution for bedrooms, media rooms, and other spaces where complete darkness is desired. Blackout drapes have a clean and modern look and feature a blackout liner that blocks the light, making them perfect for rooms where complete darkness is desired, such as media rooms or offices with conference rooms using projectors.

Energy Efficiency

Energy-efficient blackout panels can lower your energy bill by blocking out the sun’s heat in the summer and helping to insulate your home in the winter. Drapes can also keep your home cool in the summer and reduce heat loss in the winter.

Commercial Drapes

Commercial drapes are typically made from heavier fabrics and often feature fire-resistant and/or blackout properties. They are used in various settings, including office buildings, hotels, restaurants, etc.
Commercial drapes for hotels often feature a heavier fabric and a fire-resistant lining. This style is used in banquet rooms, meeting rooms, and hotel lobbies. Commercial drapes and curtains are used in hospital patient rooms, waiting areas, and surgical suites.
