DRAPERY


There is a great variety of curtains and each of them is different from one another by their materials and their operating system. We have fabric, metal, automatic, rustic, thermal, acoustic and Blackout; all with the specific function of providing comfort and give sensations to the spaces in our homes, offices or businesses.

INFORMATION

They are decorative moving elements that cover windows from inside our homes. They are made essentially in striking fabrics and colors, but in some cases, dark and fair tones are used. 

The main function of the curtains is to partially or completely prevent the entry of light and wind from the outside; however, they also allow the prudent entry of light in order to protect your furniture and floors. 

They are useful in elements such as windows, balconies, terraces; and they are especially used in the bedrooms where we sometimes require the blocking of light at the time of sleep or decrease the entry of cold wind.

KINDS

It uses folding hooks instead of pressure clasps.

  • Tailored Pleat: These pleats are delightful and designed for our customer, they are inspired with a romantic touch and placed at the top of the curtain. We recommend using a sufficient amount of fabric for this style so the folds form properly. It will also depend on the amount and distance of each fold.
  • Pinch Pleated: It has a small hook that shapes the folds, and thus, be able to place them at any distance. It should not be too broad so the folds look symmetrical. It is a versatile curtain that is perfectly designed for sober styles. It is perfect for smooth designs. The folds offer curtains a casual and cozy style for any area of the house, preferable for bedrooms or living rooms.
  • Grommet Curtain: It offers a sober and minimalist look, it is a very popular choice and its design works in any room in the house. It has buttonholes on top creating a different look. The eyelets can be combined with the fabric creating a current look. They slide very easily, this is why they are recommended for areas where curtains have a lot of use.
  • Rod Pocket: It is the right choice for a formal look. It consists of a pocket that is made with the same fabric in a uniform space on top of the curtain that covers the metal bar, leaving a smooth and freestyle to the rest of the curtain. They are perfect for formal areas such as dining rooms, reception rooms, and studios. They are difficult to slide because of this we should use them in areas where the curtain does not have to be used many times.

TIPS

Which fabric should you choose for each room of the house?
  • Living room and dining room: For these spaces, we recommend broad sense curtains that can adapt to the features of the place. If space is small you should think about light curtains and if it is wide, you can choose heavier and decorative curtains. It all depends on the goal you want to accomplish.
  • Main bedroom: Satin, silk or satin work smoothly if the room is more traditional in style. On the other hand, if the decoration is inclined towards the current and ordinary, canvas, cotton or linen should be on the list of fabrics to choose from.
  • Children’s bedroom: Since the little ones in the house are prone to carelessness and little care you should choose a curtain that is easy to wash and in the ideal case that would be water and spot proof.
  • Kitchen: Being a common area in which food is processed, it is necessary to consider light and ventilation, which determine the choice of texture and design. We recommend canvas or cotton that is pleasing to the eye, neutral colors and easy to combine. In any case, it is important that it is washable and durable. When selecting the fabric you should pay attention to the maintenance ask for the manufacturing specificities that give the possibility of knowing ways to keep them clean and to keep the quality of the colors for longer.
  • A successful color palette: Curtains are inspired by wall tones, furniture upholstery, bed, cushions and the whole set located in the room or area to decorate. Neutral colors for very charged areas, without a doubt, never fail and bright colors with designs for more minimalist areas for a sophisticated touch. If you’re not sure what the decor looks like, our best advice is to get sample scraps to take home and get a clear idea of what it looks like. Take into account the lighting and decoration of each room.
How to get curtain measurements:

The key of taking measurements is that the curtain fits in perfect harmony with the decorative goal. If you are not sure how to measure your windows to make your curtain, contact us and we will be happy to help you. We have qualified advice and we will schedule a visit to your home, office or business without any commitment.

  • For the width: Measure the total width you want to cover and measure exactly at the end of the edge if you want to finish there the curtain or add the extra space you want to go over the frame. We recommend around 8 inches for a perfect finish.
  • For height: If you are looking for the style of “kissing the floor” (the most popular), measure the distance from the roof to the floor and then subtract 1.5 inches (1.0 inch for the free space on the track + 0.5 inches for the free space on the floor). If you are looking for a puddle look, add 3 -6 inches to the length of the floor.
