Getting customized drapes not only makes your home feel special but it also provides a way to really step up your interior decorating without having to spend a lot of money. Drapes have been, after all, seen as quite a status symbol for a long time and many people still view them as opulent accessories, only now they are far easier to make and therefore can be used by more people. If you want to make sure your custom drapes really are customized, then here are a few things you should consider as you go along the design and manufacturing process.
Many people enjoy putting a small but memorable special connection in their custom drapes that only they and their close family recognize. Whether that is a pattern that holds special significance or maybe the color of something that was a big deal to you at some point in your life. For instance, some choose to get drapes the color of their tie on the day they got married or perhaps hide a little symbol in them that used to mean a lot when they began dating their current partner. There are endless options if you have the time to think of them.
These days a lot of cheaper made drapes are made from mass-produced material that, while fine in theory, feels much less premium and does not last as well. This can be from fabric that lets far too much light in from outside to materials that just do not sit and drape the way you want them to. After all, you want your drapes to look relaxed and thick to create the type of traditional image many people have of them, not fixed upright and immovable. When getting your custom drapes made, make sure to choose a thicker fabric that feels more premium as it will last better as well.
While you do want your drapes to be gently touching the floor, you do not want them to be slouched and bunched up, with several feet worth of material lying flat on the floor. Never trust your own measurements when it comes to custom drapes, if you can get the manufacturer to come in and measure the size for themselves, then do so. You will thank yourself later when the drapes are much easier to clean and look less worn out and broken than they otherwise might if they were too long.
