What is the difference between a drape and a curtain?
The main difference between the two is that a drapery has a liner, curtains do not. A liner provides protection from the sun wearing on the fabric over time. It also works to control light. (Blackout or Privacy Lined)
Do Curtains come in different widths?
Yes. With a custom window covering it can be down to the 1/8″, whereas an “off the shelf” panel will be whatever is offered and not specific to your window.
Should Curtains touch the floor?
If that is the style you desire, they should hover just slightly above the floor and not actually touch. This keeps the bottom hem from wearing over time, and it can tend to act like a dust mop.
Puddling is a different style where the fabric pools at the bottom.
What are Curtains and Drapes?
Hung by curtain rods, they function to repel light as well as create beautiful style to your decor. Heavier fabric or linen creates a comfortable setting, where a light sheer filters light within a room.
How to choose the Best Curtains and Drapes?

1) Correct Measurements and
It is important that we include the size of rings, rod, and any other hardware that will be included int the equation. This weighs heavily into getting the exact fitment.
Creating a beautiful room relies a lot on how heavy or light the material will be. Warm, thick and cozy can be dramatically different from light and airy.

3) Privacy and Sunlight
This is where liners can come into play. Blackout liners offer more protection from the sun and heat. Mostly considered in bedrooms, whereas a sheer material would be better suited for a living room or window near a patio.
