Custom drapery panels come in a wide selection of fabric styles and colors. Styles include grommet drapery panels, ring top, French pleat and rod pocket curtains. Each drapery top style offers a unique style and can be paired with drapery rods that come in metal, wrought iron, wood and art deco finishes. Drapery panels offer a modern look to any home decor. The rich selection of materials includes plain fabrics, harlequin designs, stripes, florals and sheers. Keep an eye out for drapery panels sewn in the USA.

Drapery panels are designed with fullness built in so all you need to do is measure the size area you need to cover. Fullness will be approximately double for each panel but will vary based on the width. Drapery rods are generally not included but are sold separately. Liners are generally not included in drapery panel purchases, but are an optional upgrade. The benefits of using liners is they allow light in when the drapes are open, but still retain privacy, which can be important for lower level rooms that are street facing. Liners come in a couple of options, which include privacy liners that are intended to allow light in while offering privacy and black out liners, which add extra insulation to the window and increase energy savings. Black out liners also help reduce noise coming in.

Drapery panels fit onto a drapery rod. There are a few differences in finishes, depending on personal taste. Some drapery panels come with fabric for a flowing continuous look, while others utilize drapery rings that attach to the drapes, or can be sewn in. Here's a quick breakdown of styles of drapery rods:

  • Rod pocket drapery is designed with a fabric pocket to insert the drapery rod and requires no drapery rings.
  • Ring top panels with clip on drapery rings included. Each drapery ring is attached to the top of the curtain panel with a clip on ring.
  • Ring Top with sewn on drapery rings. Each curtain panel comes with the necessary drapery rings
  • French pleat drapery panels offer a pinched pleat at the top of the curtain. Each panel is attached to the drapery rod with a drapery clip that is attached using a "pin" on the back of the panel.
  • Grommet drapery panels have metal grommets attached at the top of the panel to mount the drapery panels to the curtain rod.

Some companies that once only dealt in window blinds and treatments are now expanding into the drapery line to allow convenience to their customers for a one-stop shopping experience to decorate the entire household. Custom drapery panels give an elegant finish to tall windows and frame in French doors beautifully.
