Drapes are a window treatment that is known for being heavy, long, and formal, which makes them a fantastic option when you want to convey luxury while emphasizing the height of your ceilings.

Finding the Perfect Drape
Drapes have the power to transform your room, but you’ll want to choose the transformation that fits your needs and style. Consider the mood you’re trying to achieve and the color palette that you’re working with. Are you decorating a formal living? A guest bedroom? A kitchen window?
Types of Rod
For a more formal look, you could try floor-length drapes made from a luxurious fabric like silk or velvet. Also, take into account the type of rod you’ll be using to hang the curtains. A decorative curtain rod adds the finishing touch on a classic, high-quality window covering. And in terms of color, you’ll look for a color that blends well into your current decor.
Choosing drapes for a bedroom is a more personal decision than a for a living room, where you will be hosting guests. When choosing bedroom drapes, consider the amount of light the room receives and whether you want that light to filter into the room or block it entirely. Your bedroom is a sanctuary, a retreat, and you should choose colors that make you feel relaxed and comfortable. Those colors, of course, will be different depending on your style and taste, but the experts here at Couvrant encourage you to try a pared-back pallet for a bedroom.
If you’re looking for a practical, hard-working drape, you may want to consider curtains made from a rayon blend or cotton saten. While they may not give you that lux feel of a heavier, traditional drape, they’re a great way to add a bold pop of color or pattern to your room. They work well in kids rooms, bathrooms, or kitchens.
Lastly, you’ll want to consider where to mountain your drapes in relation to the window. A general rule is making sure that the curtain rod is set above the frame and also extends beyond the window frame. The portions that you choose can dramatically change the look of the window. For example, if you set the rod significantly higher than the window, it will highlight your ceiling height and add drama to the room, while hanging curtains wider than the frame allows extra light to stream into the room, adding energy to the space.
