Draperies add a lot of character to rooms and they introduce fabrics and colors that can either be the highlight of a room, or they can be an element that brings everything else together. Rooms like dining rooms, living rooms, family rooms and master bedrooms are common to invest in some higher end custom draperies. Of course you can also have packaged draperies that will accentuate virtually any room as well. Many times putting draperies in a room is bundled with window coverings such as blinds. It all depends on the focus of a particular room and what works best for you.
Remember that is not just the draperies, but the hanging rods as well to budget for with this project.
When decorating a room, sometimes the initial budget covers the furniture and wall decorations only. So many people hold off on the drapery piece until they can save up enough budget to put in custom draperies in certain rooms in the home.
It is important to decide if you want packaged draperies or if you have the budget and desire for custom draperies. Make sure the colors and fabrics for your draperies fit in with the overall theme of the interior design of the room. If you go the custom route, many designers can help you choose the right fabrics and colors to go with your existing furniture, flooring, and paint colors.
