Drapery Trends: Panels Are Perfect In So Many Places

 

In recent years, we’ve seen increasing use of drapery panels as window treatments, replacing swag treatments or valances in popularity.

Most drapery panels are used to add warmth to a room. Most are stationary panels that also serve as something of a palette, letting people add patterns, textures, and colors to their rooms to create their own special look.

Simplicity is the trend in drapery panel design. The eye-catching details are in the fabric itself, or in the pleating – or perhaps decorative hardware is the design element that adds the “wow” factor to the window treatment. The design itself is clean and simple; it’s the extras that express creativity and individual style.

Drapery panels in urban homes are almost always stationary, and they’re often combined with shades or blinds for privacy. The pleating styles most frequently used include French pleats (sometimes called tacked-top pleats), or two-finger pleats, which is my personal preference because they look awesome and so very rich. Ripple folds also are a favorite in urban homes because they stack so well and allow more “view exposure,” which is especially important in high-rise condominiums where the view is sacred!

In the suburbs, however, most clients like a bit more decorative flair in their panels (at least this has been my observation), although some clients do request simplicity to complement their “clean look” design style.

Horizontal banding in one or more contrasting colors can be fun, as are buttons, unusual pleating, decorative hardware, and “breaking” on the floor, which is very trendy at the moment and preferred by many clients. One reason for the popularity of panels that break on the floor is because it’s frequently seen on television programs, such as HGTV, and in home décor magazine.

The variety of beautiful fabrics available in the market today is astonishing. Fabrics with shiny stones, sparkles, modern embroidery, and shimmery elements are all very popular. And all kinds of textures can be woven into the fabric, which makes them special and unique!

The use of short rods on each side of the window is growing in popularity, and panels are even sometimes mounted on boards instead of on rods.

Dressing up windows with panels enhances the height of the space and gives it a finished look. Consider some of these fun drapery panel projects I have recently completed and give me a call with ideas of how YOU would like to dress up YOUR windows!

Drapery tie back can make a huge statement!

Every element in the drapery’s design is important and it can make a definite contribution to the over all look of the draperies.

Take for example the tie back: a simple drapery panel can be turned into a magnificent one by adding a special tassel tie back or a decorative embellished one.

Tie backs could be made from natural materials, such as raffia, dried flowers, tree barks, ceramic beads, and materials of similar nature for that special look that one might desire.

Pleated fabrics, ruffled fabrics, trims, fringes, pleats, buttons, grommets, bows, and ribbons, to name a few ideas can be added to the tie back to make them unique!
