Decorating with Panels



Panels are the most popular choice of all window treatment styles for multiple reasons. Framing a window in fabric evokes feelings of hospitality, security, and comfort in a room, while providing decorative appeal and functionality. Panels also have a disguising element - they can make windows appear wider or taller or both, and sheer panels can filter out an unsightly view. Pleated headings along the top of drapes are fashionable pick while traditionally gathered panels create lovely effects, especially when the panels remain stationary at the sides of the window. When selecting a fabric, remember that draperies that blend with the walls will fade into the setting, while bold, contrasting panels will become immediate focal points.
