Custom Made Drapes Invoke Quality

Have you ever received a hand made quilt or blanket from a grandmother or relative? What was so special about it? Was it the fact that someone had put their time and effort into making something just for you? Or just that it was made out of the soft material and colors you love? Or maybe the thought that someone custom made the quilt with you in mind? I think most would agree that a customized blanket is much better than any store bought, mass manufactured blanket. Let's face it, mass manufacturing is the result of impatient consumers, but for those of us that want quality, we are willing to wait for only the best.

Consider custom drapes. Draperies have been around for centuries and hold historical value and roots. Did you know that every new president has the option in customizing and choosing the drapery in the Oval Office and through out the estate? According to the Washington Post and chief White House usher Gary Walters, says any changes in the private quarters and the Oval office are made on inaugural day. They work within a $100,000 government budget. President Nixon had royal blue and gold draperies in the Oval Office while President Carter went for an earth tone natural drapery. It was even said that Elizabeth Dole set off a security alarm because she was over anxiously measuring for drapes.

Consider your home's outdoor area, as well as your indoor needs. Outdoor drapes are fast becoming popular and a necessity for most outdoor lovers. The idea that you can custom make your own drapes allows you to select what really suits your needs and desires. Outdoor drapes can offer privacy and ambiance to any outdoor patio or wooden deck.

Custom also allows choice on what fabrics and textures you want. Custom outdoor drapes are now made with the finest acrylic fabrics. For instance, Sunbrella outdoor fabrics are durable, mildew and mold free fabrics, and are made from 100 percent solution-dyed acrylic yarns. Solution-dying is the process of adding color to acrylic fibers during manufacturing while they are in a liquid state. This characteristic of Sunbrella fabrics is the key to locking in color, easy cleaning and long life. Fabrics made for the outdoors can be ideal for indoor window treatments, as well. Custom fabric designs and patterns are available to really help those who want to match a certain design aesthetic. The possibilities are endless when it comes to custom made items. You have the freedom to choose the way you want something to look and show off your own personal taste at the same time. Custom made is another way of saying especially made for you.
