Drapery Decor – Selection
Things to know: Area
At Becky’s Draperies LTD., we understand the importance of choosing the perfect drapery for your small room. Our expert advice ensures that you can maximize the space and create the illusion of a larger area. Opt for plain drapery to give your room a more spacious feel, while patterned drapes may reduce the perceived room size. For windows of varying dimensions, consider striped patterns. Vertical stripes will create the illusion of height and are ideal for wide windows, while horizontal stripes are suggested for tall, narrow windows. Lastly, when it comes to swags, it is crucial to select a style that complements the overall decor of your room. This will help prevent crowding in a small space. Trust Becky’s Draperies LTD. for reliable guidance in selecting the perfect draperies to enhance your room’s aesthetics and functionality.
Things to know: Colour
At Becky’s Draperies LTD., we understand the importance of color in creating the perfect ambiance for your space. That’s why we encourage you to bring swatches with you when selecting drapery, as we believe that color cannot be accurately carried in your head. Instead of depending on mental colors, trust the physical representation of swatches to ensure a precise match for your desired aesthetic. Our expert team also recognizes that rooms already have a distinct color array, which is why we recommend plain drapes that complement and enhance the existing tones. By avoiding the addition of more color, you can prevent overcrowding and maintain a balanced atmosphere. For rooms that may appear dark, lighter tints of color can lend a quiet hue and enhance the overall brightness. On the other hand, if you’re looking to add warmth to northern room areas or create an enlightened effect in darker rooms, our collection of bright, colorful patterns is the perfect solution. Trust Becky’s Draperies LTD. to help you make the right color choices for your space.

Drapery Decor – Care
At Becky’s Draperies LTD, we understand that drapery damage can be a result of various factors. These include exposure to sunlight, the buildup of airborne soil and acid, forming gas wastes from industrial sources, gas waste from household appliances, water damage from sweating windows, fraying along the pleated top from rod contact when drawing drapes, fraying along the bottom or outer edge from contact on window frames or other objects, and heat from registers and radiators. It’s important to note that sun fading, which may be mistaken for soil condition, can occur in dyestuffs exposed to direct sunlight for forty to sixty hours. This color issue due to sun becomes evident after cleaning. While these conditions are normal and cannot be prevented, regular cleaning or laundering, at least once a year, can significantly prolong the lifespan and enhance the appearance of your curtains and drapery.
For best results
1. Choose the appropriate fabric for your needs. If you have windows in sunny locations, opt for fabrics that are resistant to sunlight damage. Avoid using sheer fabrics as a substitution for shades or blinds. Keep in mind that synthetics tend to be more resistant than cellulose fibers, with silk being the least resistant option.
2. It is essential to line all drapery to protect against fading and fiber deterioration.
3. Synthetic fibers attract dry soil (dust) due to static, so regular cleaning is recommended.
4. Cotton and Rayon fabrics tend to yellow with age.
5. While Terrylene, Dralon, and certain cotton drapery can be washed by hand or machine, they will maintain their colors and original contour for longer if professionally cleaned on a regular basis.
6. Never attempt to wash Rayon, Acetate, Mohair, Satin, Velvet, Polyester, or Hopsack drapes. These fabrics must be dry cleaned.
7. Avoid using washing solvents, detergents, or spot removers on your drapes. Only a professional cleaner can assess their durability and provide appropriate care.
8. If you have any doubts or need advice, don’t hesitate to reach out to Becky’s Draperies LTD. or a professional drapery cleaner for assistance.
