drapery systems

Draperies are an excellent shading solution for homes and offices. When choosing draperies as your window treatments, you give the room a nice warm feel, while providing the light control you’re looking for in window shades. There are endless options when choosing drapery systems for your home, from color to style to fabric choice and beyond.

Although draperies don’t have the ability to adjust horizontally with the sun’s movement, like roller shades or folding shades, they still offer many other solar shading benefits. Many draperies can be lined with blackout liners to darken a room more than traditional draperies. Controlling the amount of light entering your room can be very helpful is you’re trying to sleep or watching a movie. Draperies are also often insulated for solar control. Insulated draperies can help keep out unwanted heat during summer months and can keep in the wanted heat during cold winter months. Both these solutions benefit you and the environment!

Drapery systems can also be operated manually or with a motorized system. Homeowners throughout New York City often convert their current manually operated draperies into a much simpler, motorized system. Motorized systems eliminate cords and the complications some face with opening and closing.  Motorized window treatments can be opened and closed with the press of a button!

Since draperies are one of the preferred solar control options, they can most often be customized to your style and aesthetic preference. Depending on the look, amount of sunlight you want entering the room and purpose you want the window treatments to serve, you can explore your options. Whether it be commercial or residential drapery systems you’re looking for, both provide excellent solar control options for New York City and surround area homes and offices.
