Custom Drapery Styles, Trimmings, and Accessories for your Home

Summer’s here. If you want to block the sunshine in style, it’s time to take a look at your window treatments and give them a little boost. With all kinds of drapery, trimmings, and accessories available, you may find it overwhelming to choose. We’re here to help. Here’s a handy list of drapery trimmings and accessories for different home styles.

 

Working with Custom Drapery


Getting custom drapery for your home is always the best option. You’ll be able to pick and choose the fabric and have them styled to your liking. Of course, there are some things you should consider before having custom drapery made. Think about how you would like to hang your curtains - by curtain pole or track?

Curtain rods are most commonly used. On the other hand. curtain tracks are almost invisible, often layering different types of curtain fabrics. Think about how thick you want the fabric as well. If you want to completely block out the sun, heavier fabrics or blackout fabrics will do the trick. Sheer curtains are best for homes that are not completely facing the sun.

Types of Pleating


Now that you’ve thought about how you want to hang your curtains and the kind of fabric you like, it’s time to choose the kind of pleating. The pinch pleat and tailored pleat are best for classic looking homes. The same goes for the goblet pleat. These types of pleating sophistication to almost any kind of fabric. Other styles like the box pleat, grommet, rod pocket, and inverted pleat look best in modern or contemporary style homes.

Trimmings


Next up: choosing your trimmings. Before you choose, consider the fabric and the type of pleating you want. Classic trimmings like brush fringes, bullion fringe, tassels or braid trims do not pair well with solid, more contemporary colors. These trimmings best fit classic patterns, neutral, or earthy colors. For a more modern look, ribbon banding, tape trims, and fan edge are the best choices.

Accessories


The last but not the least, are the drapery accessories. The first thing you should look at is your curtain rod. Standard metal rods just won’t cut it, after you’ve painstakingly chosen the fabric, pleating and trimmings of your custom drapery. Curtain rods and finials should match the look of your room. Ornamental rods & finials are great for classic or vintage style rooms. For contemporary rooms, the simpler, the better. Also consider tie backs or holdbacks that contrast or complement the color of your drapery fabric.

Custom Projects For Every Room in Your Home

Refreshing your furniture? We’ve all been there. We spend hours looking for decorating inspiration online only to find the same trend over and over. When all else fails, let your imagination loose and think about how you would want your home to look. Don’t know where to start? Here’s a list of custom home projects for every room in your home.

 

Living Room


When choosing or replacing the furniture in your living room, seats, throws, and slipcovers should take priority over any other furniture, as they are the most used.

Accent Chairs - Start with accent chairs. This is the best way to break the monotony in any space is to use contrasting or complementary colors or patterns. Some accent chairs also look great with multi-fabric upholstery.

Ottomans - Ottomans are also a great addition to any living room, as it doubles as a seat and extra storage.

You may also use ottomans as an extension of your couch, or use it as a footstool.

Couches - Loveseats or three-seater couches? It depends on the amount of space you have of course! Regardless of the size, your couch is the centerpiece of the room, so you should be careful when choosing the fabric for upholstery. Couches usually have neutral colors (or patterns) so it’s easy to contrast with other chairs and throws.

Slipcovers - Slipcovers for your chairs and couches are great too if you want to change your style once in a while.

Dining Room


Dining Chairs - How do you choose the right fabric for your dining chairs? For starters, it depends on the type of material the chair is made of. There’s also size to consider, and the type of table you have. The best fabrics to use are stain-resistant fabrics like microfiber, or even outdoor performance fabrics Sunbrella.

Bedroom


When we think of the bedroom, the first thing that comes to mind is comfort. It’s not just about physical comfort - it’s also about how your bedroom looks.

Headboards - Headboards don’t only protect your walls from scratches, they give you visual comfort. If you’re the expressive type, you can also use the headboard as decor. You can use a variety of fabrics to upholster your headboard - from linen to velvet. Tufted headboards look great in more classic bedrooms, while leather headboards are perfect for a more industrial feel.

Bedding - Why settle for plain old sheets when you want to have maximum physical and visual comfort?

The most common - and perhaps the most comfortable - fabrics used for sheets and mattress covers are linen and cotton.

Backyard


Sometimes we just want to relax outdoors without leaving the comfort of our own homes. When choosing outdoor or patio furniture, consider fabrics that are comfortable, but at the same time, able to withstand the wear and tear.

Patio Furniture - From couches to throws, umbrellas to awnings, the best outdoor fabric should be able to withstand the wear and tear. How do you determine if a fabric is strong enough? Ask your local fabric store about double rubs or abrasion rating. An abrasion rating of 20,000 should be enough for heavy use.

Having custom furniture made to your specifications will make your home look one of a kind, a space that you can truly call your own. Fabrics That Go can help you turn your ideas into reality. Visit our store or contact us today.
