With the first recorded usage of curtains occurring over five thousand years ago in ancient Egypt, it’s safe to say that drapery is a well-established staple of the window coverings industry. Its longevity as a popular window covering solution can be explained by several key factors that make drapery so desirable: functionality, customizability, and visual appeal. Curtains are excellent window coverings for those who desire optimal light control in their homes. Since they are typically designed to overlap the window frame, they leave no gap for unfiltered light to enter while closed. With a variety of fabric types ranging from light sheers to full blackout curtains, this means that you can choose the exact level of light or lack of light that is able to enter into your home. These fabrics can also be layered, so you can adjust the light filtration levels depending on the conditions outside and your preferred level of light within at any given moment. You can even layer drapery over other forms of window coverings, like shades and blinds, creating a unique style with its own unique set of benefits. This is just the beginning of the high level of customization offered by drapery, as the rods, finials, grommets, and other hardware are all available in a variety of styles or colours. Even more importantly, the range of fabric designs is extensive, with distinguished classics, beautiful patterns and cheery modern prints all available for your consideration. With the level of customization available, you can be sure that your final product will be a great visual addition to your space.
