Difference Between Drapes & Curtains?
Although many people use the terms drapes and curtains interchangeably, they do not mean exactly the same thing. The good thing to know is that, here at Retro Blinds, we can offer you advice about which sort of window treatment to choose in any given situation in your workplace or residence. That said, it is still worth outlining the main differences between drapes & curtains so you know which styles to look at when seeking a dressing for a particular window.
To begin with, drapes tend to be heavier and larger than most curtains. Typically, they are sold in pairs, just like curtains, but you can also obtain drapes that move to one side only. This might be because they are being installed to offer privacy with a bi-folding door, for example, and there is no room for a pair of drapes – with one on either side – due to the way the door folds up. In addition, drapes tend to be made from certain materials, such as silk, damask or velvet. Although you can find curtains in these sorts of materials, their heaviness means they tend to be used more for drapes that hang all the way down to the floor. This means that drapes have a greater visual impact than most curtains.
Due to the amount of space they take up – typically covering some wall space surrounding the window where they are installed – they are very good for blocking sunlight. With heavy lining and a spread to each side of the window, they allow for a great deal of privacy as well as shading. Usually, although not exclusively, drapes are pinch pleated or even double-pleated. This means that, along with a matching pelmet, they tend to have a more formal appearance than most curtains.
