Curtains & Drapery

Hanging new curtains is the perfect way to transform any living space. Curtains come in an array of patterns and solid colors, offering a multitude of decorating options for any home. In addition, curtains are available in short and long lengths to fit any window or door. Learn about the various kinds of curtain styles including rod pocket, grommet, pinch pleats and more below.

Rod Pocket

One of the most commonly found curtain header options, the rod pocket curtain panel feeds onto a standard or decorative curtain rod easily. A rod pocket curtain might have a header or not.  The header adds additional style as it stands above the rod for visual affect. The more you gather the curtain panel on the curtain rod, the tighter the header appears.  Hang two or more rod pocket panels for your desired coverage and window style.

Grommet

A more modern look, the grommet top panel offers a smoother open and close experience. Grommets can be found on many curtain styles, offering an updated look to the traditional rod pocket or back tab curtain. Grommets allow curtains to slide open to flank the window to either side, and can be hung in multiples for a more decorator look. Hang easy-to-slide grommet panels on a decorative rod to cover patio and sliding glass doors.

 

Back Tab
