If you thought having drapery in your home was out of the question because of the size of your budget, it’s time to think again. Adorning your windows with treatments like pleated curtains has never been more accessible and affordable to people with thinning wallets.

Pleated curtains and other styles like tailored pleat, pinch pleat, inverted pleat, grommet drapery, ripple fold drapery, cubicle drapery, rod pocket drapery or goblet drapery are more readily available these days thanks to the onslaught of companies making them – and making them well. You won’t need to look too hard to find a lovely pair of pleated curtains or other similar styles.

In fact, if you do your homework, you might actually find that getting curtains custom-made is not out of the question. Custom-made drapery (as well as shades and blinds) is more prevalent these days, as window treatment manufacturers have caught with up technology. This allows you to choose curtains that are exactly the length you want – and you can avoid having them lay or brush against such potential hazards are floor heating grates. You can also choose the width you want – if you already have a shade on the window and want drapery for purely decorative reasons, you can choose a more narrow width (and save even more money). Of you can ensure that you’re able to close the drapes by choosing a wider width and then tying them back if/when necessary – say, if you want additional light in the room.

The options are for curtains great, and it’s great to have options.
