Drapery Styles & Pleats
http://www.sheilaswindowtoppers.com The Style of your drapery as well as the pleat style can be a focal point of the draperies. The type of pleat used can give the draperies a traditional look or a modern look. Drapery rods will also influence the finished look of your draperies. You can select from wood, metal or acrylic decorative rods. There are various sizes of rods and finials as well. If you plan on having full functioning drapes you will want a pleat style that allows your draperies to stack, but if they are only going to be decorative panels, the pleat styles are limitless.
