What Houzz contributors are saying:
A cringeworthy but oft-discounted drawback of stationary draperies is the damage we risk when we grab the fabric and attempt to pull it where we want it. Certain top styles do not easily move, and pulling can stretch and soil the fabric or compromise the seams.More Drapery Diary: The Case for Custom | Tab and Tie Tops
Is there a difference between curtains and drapes? Arguably, yes. Curtains tend to be lighter and less formal, like bathroom curtains or kitchen curtains. They are also generally window length rather than full length, and are not lined.
"Curtain." Curtains tend to vary in length, while draperies usually fall all the way to the floor. The window treatment in this photo is considered a curtain. "Draperies" also can refer to lined or backed curtains with a fuller and heavier feel. Tip: If you don't like the appearance of a curtain but can't bring the fabric down to the floor because of an obstacle, consider using a hard window treatment, such as a blind.
