Design Quick Tip :: 5 Ways for a Custom Drapery Look
Are you wishing you could get a custom drapery panel “look” with a more ready-made price? You can and here are 5 tips to help you do just that. Ready-made drapery panels are ones that you can purchase at West Elm, Pottery Barn even Bed Bath Beyond and more. Unfortunately, there is a big difference in style when having draperies custom made. You can pick your fabric, embellishments, fullness and so on. There are a few deign tricks to get a custom look and here’s 5 of my favorites.
Tip #1 Hang on rings and never use a rod pocket. A rod pocket is a pocket at the top of your drapery panel where you can slide the rod through for haning. It’s a ready made giveaway. Simply purchase rings and hang the rod from rings to get a pretty pleat or fold.
Tip #2 Add embellishment to the leading edge of the panels. A decorative ribbon or contrast fabric band is a perfect way to add a little designer style.
