What Are the Differences Between Drapes and Curtains?

There are a number of choices you have to make when you are looking at window treatments in Denver. You might opt for shutters, blinds, or shades in some rooms, but you could also want a different look for your bedroom, living room, or kitchen. Curtains and drapes are terms that are often used interchangeably, but there are in fact differences between the two that should be understood. Drapes tend to be made of heavier fabrics to block out light and keep your valuable heating and cooling inside your home. Custom drapes are a smart choice for bedrooms, especially if you have south-facing windows that get very bright. They are typically longer than curtains, usually going all the way to the floor. Curtains, on the other hand, are usually made out of lighter fabrics and can be combined with other window treatments without looking bulky. They may provide less privacy than drapes, but they can add a lot of style to your home, especially in rooms where you want more light, such as the kitchen.
