Every year, about this time, I am reminded of how amazing blackout lining is when it comes to insulating a room. It’s about 95 degrees where I live and we do not have AC. We do, however, have blackout on every pair of the curtains and drapes in our home. We just returned from being out all day and we closed all of the drapes before we left and returned to really cool rooms. I don’t think we could make it through the entire summer without blackout curtains and drapes.
In the winter the blackout is just as effective at keeping the warm in and cold out.
At DrapeStyle we try to make it affordable to include blackout lining on every set of custom curtains and drapes that we sell. Today you can make any set of curtains energy efficient blackout drapes for only $99 per panel. No doubt that they will pay for themselves over time with the energy that they will save.
We are so happy to announce that our new Custom Drapery Production Facility is open in Costa Mesa! We’ve nearly doubled the amount of equipment that we had previously, hired some great new People and expanded our productivity.
One of our objectives in opening the new Drapery Workroom is to provide drapery manufacturing services to The Trade in Orange County, CA. As many of the drapery workrooms in Orange County are closing or down-sizing, DrapeStyle is expanding. We invite any US and Canadian Interior Designers who are looking for a new Workroom to consider DrapeStyle for professional service, competitive pricing and excellent quality on custom drapery and roman shades.
Our new Production Facility in Costa Mesa, CA is nearly complete! We move this weekend!
This means more jobs in Costa Mesa and faster production times for our Customers. DrapeStyle is proving everyday that we can still manufacture premium Products in the USA and pay skilled Employees a livable wage! Thanks to all of our Customers, Employees and Friends for your support over the last 10 years!

Some times we forget to remind everyone that we make custom made pillows at DrapeStyle. Hundreds of them in fact, including amazing pillows in Outdoor Fabrics. This week we were making some outdoor pillows in Trina Turk fabrics – which we love – so we shot a quick video on how we make them. Hope you enjoy and remember when you are ordering your custom made curtains, drapery or shades at DrapeStyle that we can make you matching pillows from the same fabric we cut your drapery from! Just give one of our Designers a call to get pricing and order!
We are in the process of finishing a large job for a commercial Client. The Client is a Church and we are making their drapes for their Community Center and stage. As part of the process of making drapery for any commercial project where the premises will be accessed by the public we must have the drapery fabric “fire treated”.
When we fire treat the fabric we send it out to a company that takes the fabric and coats it with a “fire resistant” chemical. It is very important to be clear that this process, nor does any process, make the fabric or drapery “fire proof”. What the process does do is to slow the burn rate of the fabric to allow for more time for people to vacate the area.
Whenever you see drapery in a hotel, restaurant or any public area that drapery has been fire treated. Before the drapery is installed most local fire codes require that a sample of the fire treated material be sent to the fire department. In addition to the fabric samples we also send specific certificates which clearly identify what fabrics were fire treated and how long the expected “burn rate” is.
Once the fire department has the fabric samples they will actually conduct a “burn rate analysis” on a controlled lab. In the test the fabric will be ignited and the rate at which the fire consumes the fabric will be recorded and documented. The fabric will either “pass” or “fail” based on the burn rate in the lab.
Assuming that the fabric passes the burn rate test in the lab, the fire department will provide the building owner with a certificate which will allow them to proceed with opening the facility to the public.
I know, this is a long way of saying “DrapeStyle can Fire Treat your drapery”. We can complete the same process for your home as we do for a commercial project. The process will, of course, add to the price and the lead-time but if you are concerned about the flammability of your drapery than you should consider having them fire treated. We don’t offer the service / process on our website so please feel free to call and speak to one of our Design Professionals to learn more about fire treating your custom drapes.
At DrapeStyle we have been making custom drapery with a wide variety of grommets for over a decade. Like almost everything else at DrapeStyle, there is almost nothing “standard” including our grommets. When you order your custom made drapery or curtains with grommets from DrapeStyle, you will select your grommet size and color. We offer a larger diameter which is most commonly used on a thicker drapery rod outdoors to a smaller grommet for a very contemporary drapery look. The choice is yours and if you don’t see exactly what you are looking for online than please call one of our Designers. We have access to literally dozens of drapery grommet sizes, colors and materials. And, of course, we set each grommet by hand!
Custom velvet drapes have been a Designers favorite for years. Velvet is a very durable fabric with excellent insulting qualities and has been used for custom drapery for over 100 years. Because velvet is a heavier fabric it tends to hang very full when used as drapery and works well with almost any pleat style including grommets. One important consideration when selecting Velvet as your custom drapery fabric is to get a sturdy drapery hardware and pole option that will support the weight of velvet. Raw Velvet weighs about twice as much a similar silk, linen or cotton so be sure that your drapery hardware can handle the load. The benefit of such heavy material is incredible insulation from both noise and temperature. Velvet will help keep you warm in the winter and cold in the summer.
