What affects the cost of custom drapes, custom curtains, and custom window treatments.
Window treatments like draperies, valances, and shades can enhance your home a great deal. When they are well done, and well proportioned, they can be stunning and add special and unique personality to your room. You can have simple, utilitarian window treatments, or you can go for all the bells and whistles and spend as much as you want to. Usually somewhere in the middle is the best choice.
Workmanship is very important. In quality curtains and drapes, the fabric is centered, the seams are straight, never puckered, the weight of the lining and inner lining is apparent. If at all possible, try to see some examples in person of the work done by a workroom you are considering. If you are doing the sewing yourself, go to the library and get a good book or two. It is essential also that the choice of hardware works well with the choice of fabric, blinds or shades.
Fine fabrics can create a real emotional impact. They can transform ordinary windows into true architectural elements that can make your room seem larger, cozier, taller, more modern, warmer, cooler...whatever effect you wish to achieve. Consider also whether you want a light blocking or light filtering curtain or drapery. In either case you want to be sure you take the effect of the sun or sunlight on the curtains or draperies into consideration. In true decorator drapery, the normal expense for fabric is usually between twenty and forty dollars a yard. These are draperies that are meant to be used for many, many years. Since the Internet, you can now sometimes find close-outs on quality fabrics for much less and arrange to have a local workroom do the curtain or drapery construction. But plenty, deeper and richer folds can make an otherwise ordinary window treatment look very ULTRA.
Be sure to check the width of the fabric that you are considering, some fabric is much wider than others. A large pattern will mean that you will need much more fabric to match the pattern and you will have a lot more waste.
If you are on a very tight budget, consider Roman shades. In that way you can use expensive fabrics since you only need the very minimum amount. You might also consider purchasing inexpensive ready made curtains or drapes and adding a lining after you receive them. Or, use a deluxe fabric in the valance over inexpensive budget ready made sheers or curtains to save money.
Typical Types of Drapery & Panels
Grommet Panels are a more modern style that makes a definite impression in your room. These also require minimum fabric and minimum drapery hardware
Pinch pleated drapery panels are great for stationary or operational draperies and best made with true custom fullness at 250%
Ring Top Panels are casual yet very versatile. They are great for stationary side panels or operational draperies and can be embellished to suit any style of room
Rod Pocket curtains are the perfect solution to add warmth to your room. Also thought of as country curtains. These panels done slide open at the top but are tied or held back at the sides only.Tab Top panels are a classic style that will compliment the personality of any room. There is no need for rings or hooks as the panels slide right over the rod Tab Top panels are a classic style that will compliment the personality of any room. There is no need for rings or hooks as the panels slide right over the rod. Can be difficult to slide over a curtain rod, so best where left in one position mostly.
Tie Top Panels are a casual style that can dress up any window in your home. The panels are easily tied to any decorative rod or tab post or you can use spring clip rings on the ties. You can even thread beads on the tie ends and knot them for a cool look.Draperies are operated by a moving mechanism with a cord or wand. Panels are usually pulled by hand. You may find drapes more convenient if you'll open and close them often. Panels offer endless creative ideas by using tiebacks, adding length so they pool, or layering over shades or blinds.
