Custom Drapery

Blinds cascade down your windows, giving your room perfect slants of light. Black-out shades leave your bedroom blissfully dark. Opened shutters allow a stream of golden sunlight. Window treatments have completely changed your interiors, allowing you to take advantage of the beauty of natural lighting. Still, your windows might be missing important accessories: drapery and valances. Along with our other window covering services, Rainey’s Decorating Center offers top treatments like custom valances and side panels and drapery from Hunter Douglas to complete your window style.

Top treatments are easy ways to transform your interiors, especially if you already have high-quality window treatments like blinds, shades, or shutters. Valances cover window treatment hardware and give the illusion of shaped windows like arches and angles without the hassle of specialty window frames. Placed outside of the window molding, valances also add height to your rooms, giving your interiors extra dimension. They can be used on their own to block out some light while maintaining most of your viewability but can also accessorize multiple windows and be used in conjunction with drapes.

Instantly elevate your rooms by deviating from the normal squares and rectangles of your windows: use valances to provoke visual interest, for example, by using curved and draped styles to add softness to kitchens and living rooms. Straight-edged styles complement the minimalistic design of modern homes, and ruffled, scallop-edged styles provide your rooms with a more traditional look. Furthermore, the positioning of valances out of children’s and pets’ reach makes them family-friendly window treatment options.

Choosing high-quality, custom valances ultimately adds to your home’s value, which is why valances from Rainey’s Decorating Center are custom made and crafted locally, so your style flourishes with unique local touch.

Side Panels and Drapery

Drapery is long swathes of fabric that cover and decorate your windows, curtains being their lighter, airier cousins. Both are ancient forms of window coverings, evidence of their history going all the way back to the ancient Egyptians-though they no longer made of animal hides, they are undoubtedly still in style today, thanks to their ease of use and luxurious folds.

Drapes and curtains give you additional light control and an added layer of privacy, as well as providing fullness to your windows. Their designs can be the focus of the room or subtle support for the design elements already present in your interiors.

Rainey’s Decorating Center sources their drapery fabric from Hunter Douglas, and all fabrics except sheers are lined with a light-filtering and room-darkening liner. Hunter Douglas Design Studio™ Side Panels and Drapery complement your other Hunter Douglas window treatments with exclusive designs from Rebecca Atwood, Marcie Bronkar, and Seema Krish, top designers in the industry. Styles include a two-finger pinch pleat, two finger pinch pleat and grommet style side panels, as well as a two-finger pinch pleat, two-finger European pinch pleat, and ripplefold for drapery.  Coordinate your side panels and drapery with pillows and other home accents with the Hunter Douglas Fabrics by the Yard™ service for completely cohesive interiors. Hunter Douglas Design Studio™ Side Panels & Drapery can be operated manually but are also available with PowerView® Automation.
