Drapery & Curtain Fabrics

When you are considering making window treatments, there are many things to consider before looking for fabric.

The most important choice is what type of drapery do you want. If you need complete privacy or sun control you may opt for a pleated draw drapery so that you can close it during the hottest part of the day, or at night when people could see in.

If these two things are not a priority or you have blinds or shades, then you could choose a valance or swag top treatment only, or side panels that tie back and hang stationery.

The choice of your fabric is crucial and clothworks of vancouver will assist you with a smile...

Weight, texture, and drapeability should be of utmost concern depending on the treatment you are making. Swags should be done out of fabric that has body but is soft.

Anything too crisp or stiff, such as chintz, is not a good choice for swagging softly.

Choose cotton/polyester blends, cotton, antique satin, etc. Roman shades need to be made of fabric with a great deal of body and very stable; balloon shades could be of a lighter weight fabric.
