Drapery panels, the new trend for window dressing!

We have noticed the past few years that the way to dress a window has become simple and practical!

Simple drapery panels have been the trend for many years now, most homeowners might start with blinds for privacy or sun control, then stationary panels are added for adding warmth, style, and to dress-up a room.

One can use a very simple panel treatment, one color panel, that will add color or texture, or sometimes the drapery panel can have more details that might bring more character to the room.

Here are few ideas that can be used to create style and character to the room:

  • Adding Buttons:  Buttons would definitely change the overall look of a panel, it can be added to the bottom of pleats, on the sides

  • Creating a layered look using two fabrics over each other for one stationary panel: You can have the first fabric as the first layer and the second layer in sheer that lays on top of the first layer.full room less bright.jpg

 

 

  • Selecting unique fabric to make a statement: The type of fabric in terms of pattern, color, texture, and type can create a huge impact.
