When it comes to choosing draperies for your home, you have many options available, ranging from the basic draperies you could buy from big box stores to custom-made draperies you could buy from a specialty store like ours at Wolfgang Interiors – Furniture, Draperies & Design. Here’s how to decide if custom draperies are right for you and your home.
- How much stylistic freedom do you want? Draperies are the perfect piece of fabric to make a stylistic statement in your home, so you’ll want to be sure you choose just the right style to fit your tastes. With big box draperies, your options are limited when it comes to choosing the color, pattern, and style. Chances are, even if you find a set of draperies to somewhat fit your tastes, the house down the street has the exact ones. With custom draperies, you can choose the exact fabric you want, so you can get the color and pattern just right. You can even decide if you want a pleated style for your drapes or more flowing folds.
- What size are your windows? Draperies you get from a big box store can be easy because the measurements are already done for you. Even if you haven’t measured your windows, you can typically get away with choosing the larger sized draperies for larger windows, and they’ll mostly fit. However, most windows aren’t built according to cookie-cutter dimensions, so those big box draperies might end up leaving a sliver of window uncovered because the sizing wasn’t exact. With custom draperies, we can measure the fabric according to the dimensions of your windows, so there will never be any slivers or gaps.
- What quality of drapes do you want? If you are planning on hanging your drapes over a window just to block out the sun and forget about them, then big box draperies may be the right choice for you. If you want drapes that you can proudly showcase in your home, then you’ll be better off with custom draperies. Our custom drapes are sure to be of the best quality because we make them in-house for 100% customer satisfaction. That means quality, wrinkle-free materials, better durability, and not a single seam out of place.
Custom draperies could be the stylistic statement you didn’t realize your home was missing. If you’d like to learn more, just give us a call.
