Choosing a Drapery Style With The Correct Heading

by Vee Willis


Draperies and window treatments are a major part of your interior decorating project and are quite often a dilemma because draperies, curtains, and curtain hardware seems to be the least understood aspect of a interior decorating project. Those who can afford the extra expense will hire an interior designer, who will use their knowledge and expertise to choose just the perfect window treatment. However, those who cannot afford or do not want to hire an interior designer will have the seemingly arduous task of deciding which draperies and drapery hardware can be used at their particular type windows.

Before choosing your curtain or drapery hardware you must first determine the style of drapery you want. This actually means,what type of drapery heading style you prefer. Some of the drapery headings are often seen in a casual setting, while others are used for a more formal setting. The type of drapery heading you choose will determine what type of drapery rod/hardware you will need. For example, if you choose a grommet top drapery you cannot use this on a traditional traverse rod to hang your draperies.

Drapery poles are quite versatile, as shown below they can be used with or without rings. Pinch pleated draperies,or any type of pleated drapery with hooks, can attach to rings which are then attached to a drapery pole. The drapery pole can be a wooden or metal finish. Some poles are exceptionally beautiful and take on styles of their own.
