What kind of pleating? - I like the look of the sheers, but it is hard to tell what kind pleating was used on the header of the sheers.

Hi Kathryn, what is the best drape heading style to use if you want to take up minimal space when the drapes are open. I have a lovely view and so did not want to cover it with curtain during the day; I have been advised that when open the fabric will take up about 1/3 of the width of the window which seems excessive. Any thoughts?

Hello Esplanade,

What you are talking about is stack back. My first question is do you have any wall space to the sides of your window? If so you can extend the drapes beyond the opening and have it stack off the window to the sides.

If not, you can look into a vertical product framed by matching or coordinating panels on each side. This type of arrangement will allow you to raise the window covering vertically off the window when you want to enjoy the view.

Examples of vertical products are: Roman Shades (which can be done is a variety of fabrics), and Roller Shades which can be made to disappear in a number of ways. They can be hidden up behind a valance, or into a self contained cassette. Hunter Douglas makes a couple of products which might also be helpful. Look into silhouettes which are akin to soft fabric blinds which also disappears into its own self contained cassette. Another option is the Luminettes which are drape like but may have less stack back than traditional drapes.

On our website we have a number of illustrations of window treatment styles you can look at for comparison. Here is the link.


I hope this was helpful. If you have any other questions please let me know.

Full draperies covering the whole wall of the living room with the doors would be nice- sheer, but like a wall of fabric that makes the room more cozy.
