Pinch Pleat Curtains

2 Are Draperies easy to use? Some styles of Drapery are more functional than others. The easiest to operate include Ripple Fold, Tailored Pleat, Pinch Pleat and Cubicle Drapery. Ripple Fold and Cubicle drapery glide on a Track System (included) making them incredibly functional. Both Tailored and Pinch Pleat Drapery are made with 4″ buckram which is a stiffener used in each pleat that gives the drape “memory” so that it will open and close in a similar fashion each time. Grommet, Inverted Pleat, Rod Pocket and Goblet Drapery while functional are more decorative and are not ideal for operating on a daily basis. Consider how often you will need to open and close your Drapery before making your selection. Tip: When dealing with areas that require very long drapes (say over 120″) and will be opened and closed frequently, you need to consider how best to operate them. Often times because of this longer length it may be best to consider a Track (where you can pull a string to draw drapes) as this may be the optimal way to open and close them easily. Remember cornices are available (to cover a basic Custom Track).

Nice enoughRating: I ordered two sets for a guest bedroom and dining room. They have a wonderful velvety feel, subtle pattern, and I like the pinch pleats (used the loops behind them to sleeve onto the rod) They are very wrinkled and I was hoping the weight of them would smooth out the wrinkles but, so far, still wrinkled after a couple of weeks. I'll have to either take them down to iron or buy a steam iron for the process. So save yourself the hassle and iron them before hanging.show more

Excellent blackout, beautiful, versatileRating: Gorgeous fabric. Well-made, lined in white, true blackout in south-facing, full-sun window. The back tab gives the look of pinch pleats. Or use rod-pocket or clip rings. But they are heavy (3.5lbs each)! Do not expect a thin rod will hold these up w/o bending/bowing. And make sure your brackets are fastened securely. That said, I do recommend these panels.show more
