Drapery and curtains are two entirely different sets of window treatments in interior design; though the terms are often used interchangeably. Drapery refers to pleated panels that hang from decorative rods or poles. This type of window treatment is moveable and can be opened during the day and closed in the evening.
The term has been evolved as a decorative element, but is often used to describe various coverings like sheers, curtains, blinds, cornices, shutters and valances. For both houses and business firms, blinds are commonly used for window treatments. Now wide varieties of blinds are available like the paper blinds, mini blinds, slat blinds and verticals. The blinds made of wood are a special choice for modern homes. The wooden slat blinds and woven wood blinds are perfect for any stylish interiors. In extreme weather conditions, shutters are the most widely opted treatment for ventilation and insulation. These shutters are made of faux wood and keep the unwanted glare away to give maximum comfort.
Traditional treatments can range from long, draping curtains to vertical slats. It's mostly a matter of personal taste. They are often tied to the sides but can operate on horizontal sliders or be pulled straight up. Traditional styles may also encompass prints, usually floral and understated. Sheers and heavy fabrics may be combined or used separately, but often traditional styles blend usability with decoration in a very versatile way.
