The Best Drapery Fabric for Every Room

Fall in Love with Drapery from Tucson’s Top Fabric Shop

A great deal of a room’s design cohesion depends on the curtains and drapes it has. There are so many ways you can enhance your living spaces by merely changing or adding drapery or window treatments. Highlight an aesthetic, whether traditional or new trends like the resurgence of southwestern taste in drapery.

Let’s explore choosing the right drapes for every room.


When it comes to bedrooms, we have to take into account the circumstances that can affect the needed aesthetic and functionality of certain drapery designs. A nursery room, a guest room, and a master bedroom all can’t be treated the same way.

The nursery or baby room will likely be bright and clear with light with sheer drapes, along with needing a darkening fabric which can be double rodded for versatility. Parents enjoy experimenting with playful patterns, color and designs to their childrens’ rooms.

The main bedroom or master bedroom is your private space that should bring you joy any time you are in it. What inspires you? Do you feel at peace when you are in nature? Southwestern fabrics are great for window treatments, upholstered headboards, ottomans, recliners and more!

Whatever your style may be, you can showcase it through fabrics in your bedrooms to bring to life the aesthetic you seek.

Patios and Outdoor Spaces

There are many reasons why outdoor drapery has grown in popularity. Keeping your seating area cool makes guest more comfortable, plus outdoor curtains can make the space more aesthetically pleasing. They can be custom made to shade your patio, cabana or pergola.

Our fabric experts always recommend premium, fade-resistant Sunbrella fabric that is tailor-made for sun survival.

Living Room

There’s a lot to be said when it comes to living room curtains and drapes but the design rules apply here. And one of those rules is the 60-30-10 rule we previously mentioned in a past blog.

Another consideration for living room drapes is the length. Short drapes are not desirable as long elegant drapes that are installed as close to the ceiling have become popular, to make the room appear taller. At the very least, the recommended length is that they are brushing the floor or to be about half an inch above the floor. A more baroque style would be where the drapes are pooling on the floor which is about 6 to 12 inches longer than the measurement to the floor and will create a puddle of cloth.

The right drapery in your living room can make all the difference in the character of your home.

Kitchen/Dining Room

For many homes in Tucson, the kitchen, dining room, and living room are rolled up into one big space. And for those that do, then the drapery ideas covering the living room apply here too.

When it’s a separate room, the dining room is a great place for lively colors or patterns in your drapes. Color and pattern choice in drapery can accentuate your table settings to make your meals more enjoyable.

It all depends on your style, simple neutrals with interesting textures can also provide an elegant, more modern atmosphere.

Seemingly endless color choices is what you’ll find with Fabrics That Go – with over 15,000 bolts of fabrics. Check out our Portfolio.
