Different Types of Drapery for Your Arizona Home

If you have just moved into a new home or you’re looking to update your current living space, one thing you should remember to do is to put up curtains or drapery. Not only does it help block out the sunlight, but it can bring together your decor and help you save on cooling/heating costs! Here are a few different types of drapery for your Arizona home.

Fabrics That Go is a one stop shop for drapery fabrics, tassels, rods, and other accessories. We also make custom drapery according to your needs and specifications!

Sheer Curtains

Are you looking for more of an aesthetic than functionality? Pick up sheer curtains to stay on trend! They come in several colors, but are usually solid color instead of patterned. While they won’t block sunlight, they will typically block most of the view of your home from the outside. Styles that work best with this type of curtain is something like shabby chic.

Blackout Curtains

These are most used in windows that get a lot of sunlight throughout the day. They block both the light and the heat from coming into your home. This means you can save on cooling costs! The downside is that you can’t always find them appealing to the eye. Fabrics That Go can help guide you along the way and suggest good fabric for this project.


When you see curtains, more than likely, these are the ones you see. They are most popular due to their simple design and are signified by the rings at the top, which make it easy to open and close these curtains.

The fabric used is usually light to medium weight.

Rod Pocket

These type of curtains have a pocket sewn in on the top for the rod to go into. The fabric typically used here is lightweight.

Fabrics That Go has many different fabric weights and colors for you to choose from. 

Tab Top

Classified by the loops seen at the top for the curtain rod, they are usually not used for windows whose curtains need to be opened consistently. When using this type of curtain, you’ll find that it can be difficult to open and close them.
