Using Pinch Pleated Draperies As Your Window Covering
Pinch pleated draperies are the most common type of curtains that you can buy. They have the adaptability no other curtain has, and can be both classic and trendy, and fit in with both.
You will recognize these by the outwards pleat at the top and the hooks that are placed on the pleat to be attached to a rod. These also open with one motion, much like a stage curtain, and are the most popular type of curtain in the world. They also make these in the widest array of colors and materials.
Thermal drapes are very well-liked, since these can help make your energy bill lower. They keep the windowpane from allowing the heated or cooled air to escape. These are also very effective at helping to keep a room dim, which is why many hotels use these in their rooms.
If you like to have a lot of light with ample privacy, then sheer drapes may be better for you. Mostly, sheers are used behind a heavier drape, and this can give you the brightness, and allow for you to be able to control the temperature in the room as well as protect the more expensive curtains that face the room from fading by the sun.
You may find that you want a color that is no longer fashionable, or made from material that is a little more exotic then what you can find available. If this happens, make your own. A search on the web will give you many tutorials to make professional quality drapes.
Pinch pleated draperies will match with any decorating style from an ultra modern living room to a fairy tale bedroom, and everything in between. They can let you sleep better, save you money and give your rooms an expensive feel to them by having them hanging at your windows.
