What is the Difference between Drapes and Curtains?

Many people assume that drapes and curtains are the same thing, primarily because they’re both fabrics that cover windows. They’re interchangeable if we’re only basing it on their initial functionality. But there’s more to drapes and curtains than being a piece of fabric to decorate windows and help you maintain privacy.

The main difference between drapes and curtains lies in the type of fabric used to make them.

Curtains are almost always made of thin and light fabrics. These fabrics come in different colors and patterns; they’ll have no problem adding character to your interior décor. However, take note that curtains aren’t lined. They are not thick enough to block out light, and they’re often too sheer to block outsiders from looking in.

On the other hand, our custom window drapes are made of heavy, high-quality fabric. Our draperies are lined, too. That means they provide better privacy. The lining also prevents the fabric from fading, and so the life of these drapes will be longer than a typical curtain. Given the general thickness of our drapes, you can easily use them to block out light and heat. They also help keep cold air out during chilly winter days. Additionally, heavy drapes that hang from your windows to the floor often add a classic, more formal touch.
