The Benefits of Custom Drapery for Homes

There are many types of window treatments out there, and they all provide a wide range of benefits. Shutters offer durability and a timeless look, shades at light filtration, and blinds offer a sleek style to your windows. Of course, there is one type of window treatment that we sometimes forget: Custom drapery. Whether they are your primary window treatment or a layering option, custom drapery offers a variety of benefits for your home, included added privacy, shade, and insulation. That is why Hunter Douglas proudly boasts its Design Studio™ Side Panels & Drapery collection. The most decorative accent one can place on their window, these window treatments offer drama, frame your windows, and even elongate your windows while offering several functional benefits. Read on to learn more.

Design Studio™ Side Panels and Drapery near Denver, Colorado (CO), that offer added shade and insulation

Benefit 1: Stunning Fabrics

One of the benefits of custom drapery from Hunter Douglas is the stunning fabrics offered. This collection offers a stunning collection of fabrics that transform any window in your home, including textiles from designers Rebecca Atwood, Marcie Bronkar, and Seema Krish. Complete with luxe basics, lofty textures, alluring jacquards, artisanal embroideries, and luminous sheers, Design Studio™ Side Panels & Drapery let you unleash your creative side in the chicest way possible. You can even select from available performance fabrics that are specifically for durability, stain resistance, and UV stability. Select from popular colors like Royal, Sterling, Aqua, and more to complete your existing window treatments, or hang these as-is to impress any visitor.

Benefit 2: Light Control

If you find that your current window treatments aren’t cutting it when it comes to light control and privacy, adding custom drapery to the mix is an excellent option. Often made with thicker material, custom drapery blocks more light and offers more privacy than many window treatments offer on their own. All of the fabrics (sheers excluded) offered within the Design Studio™ Side Panels & Drapery collection offer a light-filtering or room-darkening liner to help you achieve the right amount of shade, light, and privacy each day. This is an especially lovely feature for rooms that need more or less shade as the day and night go on, including bedrooms, media rooms, and more.

Benefit 3: The Best Illusion

If you feel that your windows make a room in your home feel cramped, then you will love adding custom drapery to the mix. By hanging drapery a few inches above your window, you can create the illusion that your windows are longer than they are. This will open up your space while adding drama and character to any room. If you need help finding the right hardware for your custom drapes, our friendly team of experts is happy to help guide you in the right direction.
