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 most appealing thing about blinds is that because they are so versatile, they typically can be blended into existing decor without detracting from the overall design of the room. Installing blinds, no matter what size shape, color or style, will not take away from a prized painting or other accessories in the room.
Windows have always had that ability to become a focal point of many home interiors whether directly or indirectly, because of their function to radiate light and create warmth and transparency. It's important not to limit these portals of imagination to something that must be "covered"- curtains and window treatments should allow the window to interact with the room besides simply performing a function.
