In planning the installation of custom drapes for your Philadelphia home, you must consider color, material, lining, and length.Fabric and Color ConsiderationsThe fabric is a very important element because the material will determine how efficiently a curtain can insulate a space during the summer and winter. If the fabric is very heavy, it may not fold properly while the curtain is closed. If the material is too light, the process of layering the fabric and keeping it in a specific configuration will be challenging. This is why you must choose a sturdy, pleated material. Curtains that always flare will not stay in place on a window.If a lot of sunlight shines through your window, do not buy bright drapes because the UV rays will fade the fabric. Instead, choose a neural color since it will less likely fade.
