Curtains vs Drapes: What to Select?

New Homes Hobbs

Window treatments are an aesthetically pleasing décor option that complements your home and helps to evoke a mood in a room. They are cheap, easy to hang up, obscure light, help insulate your home, and can provide a sense of privacy for your new homes in Artesia NM neighbors. Window treatments are available in an array of colors, designs, fabric, shapes, and sizes. But before you look to incorporate window treatments into your home décor, there are several things you should keep in mind.

Though they are often considered the same thing, there is a huge difference between curtains and drapes. Curtains are a less informal than drapes. They typically are not lined, are cheaper, and usually are sold in pairs. They hang from a rod, tend to be shorter, and are mostly made out of lighter material such as linen, polyester, sheer, and cotton fabrics.  On the other hand, drapes have a pleated top to help them “drape,” and are made out of heavier fabric materials such as damask, silk, and velvet. They usually block out more exterior light and are longer than curtains, sometimes extending from the ceiling to the floor. Drapes are the perfect solution for a more formal look in your master bedroom, formal room, or living room. For a more casual look, select curtains for the kitchen, secondary bedrooms, and or great room.

Faux wood blinds are a great base layer for your window treatments. They are extremely functional; you can angle the blinds slightly to let in light but maintain privacy, open them all the way, or block out the light completely. Simply hang the blinds by themselves in less formal areas, or add drapes for a more formal look.

When selecting the window treatment for your home, pick the option that will best work for each room and give you the look you would like to accomplish for this space. Get faux wood blinds installed throughout your home when you build a new home with French Brothers, and ask your Selection’s Coordinator for advice on selecting the perfect drapes or curtains for your space.
