Drapes Vs Curtains – Which Should You Get?
What are drapes and curtains, and what makes them distinct? Well, the main difference between these window coverings comes down to size and mass. Curtains are made from thin, airy fabrics. They're often semi-transparent, and relatively short in length. They're usually enough to just about cover the height of the entire window. Drapes are made of thicker, heavier fabric, and hang down to the floor (and often trail across it a bit). Drapes are richer and more obscuring, but also heavier and more difficult to adjust. While curtains can be easily slid back and forth along their rods, drapes often need to be pulled back and tied in an open position.

Curtain And Drapery Rods
Whether you choose curtains or draperies, they’ll to hang from something. Curtain and drapery rods are installed above the window, either set into the frame or into the ceiling over it or into the wall. Depending on the style of window hanging, the fabric may be attached to this rod by hooks, loops, or sewing. To improve the décor of the room, consider putting in valences to cover the rod with another layer of decorative cloth. Curtains and valences sets make for a comprehensive and classy addition to any well decorated room.
