With regard to the actual textile, not only will it determine the appearance of your window treatment, it will have an effect on how your curtains or drapes actually function. "If they’re too heavy, they may not fold crisply when drawn; too light and they may not fall well," designer Suysel DePedro Cunningham of Tilton Fenwick. This means it's really important to make fabric choice a hands‐on project. Bring large samples into your space and hold them up where the curtains will go. Also, try manipulating the fabric in the style that it will be on your window.
"Pleat it like an accordion at the top and let it drape," advises Lana Lawrence, vice president of Anthony Lawrence‐Belfair. She also suggests working with a larger sample of about 2 yards or more to get a good idea of how the material will drape or pleat, especially for costlier custom window treatment projects. Designers advise that linen, silk, faux silk and velvet are optimum choices because they have the best qualities for hanging and draping.
