FAQ

Your curtain questions answered

What is the difference between a Curtain and a Drape? 

Drapes are for fancy houses and curtains are for everyone else? WRONG!  There isn’t a difference.  Tomatoe, Tomato.

What is the difference between blackout and room darkening? 

Light management comes in many levels.  Our blackout lining blocks 99% of light.  Pair this lining with any of our other fabrics and your room will be dark.  Room darkening will get dark, but once your eyes adjust (like in a movie theatre) you will be able to sense some light.

What are bundles?

A bundle is 3 curtain panels, bundled together for ease of shopping.  2 outer panels (you decide if you want unlined, privacy lined or blackout lined) and a sheer.  We suggest using a double rod and hanging the sheer closest to the wall.

I’m hoping to mix and match sizes.  Is there a custom option?

Yes!! Each panel is made just for you.  Shop by panel and design the perfect fit for your home.  Need help?  Contact customer service at info@thedrape.com

I just received my curtains and they have some wrinkles and creases. What is the best way to remove these?

We steam all the curtains before we ship them.  It is common for certain fabrics to be prone to wrinkles.  We suggest that you hang up your curtains and see if some of the wrinkles fall out.  A portable steamer is a great way to remove persistent wrinkles.  If you prefer to use an iron, please see care instructions.
