Drapery Styles


In order to achieve a completed look in regards to drapery, a selected style must be taken into consideration. The style of pleats, choice of valance and cornice are details that add depth and dimension to your window coverings. It is essential to give these details thought, as some styles are better suited for overall looks of a room and functionality of the drapery. The consultants at Amazing Window Fashions will guide you through these decisions, and thoroughly explain what options suit your style, needs and budget.

We offer a wide selection of style options. Pleats add character to drapery and give your gorgeous fabrics, something extra. Valances are also a widely popular decorative choice. This decorating technique has been popular for decades and continues to increase in popularity. Whichever overall look you desire for your window coverings and space, all style approaches will leave your windows looking elegant and polished.
