Reno Curtain Styles

Choices of curtain styles are based on many different things. The number one key is the desire of the homeowner. What works for one person will be completely wrong for another. Let me go over a number of considerations that you will think about if you are doing draperies or curtains in your home here in Reno or Lake Tahoe.

Custom Curtains Finish A Look

Fabric Choice

There are literally 1000’s of fabrics that can be used as a curtain or drapery material. How do you select the right one? This is one of the areas that emotion is more involved than reason. How does the fabric make you feel? Does it stimulate the types of feelings that you want when you enter that room? Textures, colors, heft, patterns and more can bring out sensations in us. Often when my clients and I are looking through fabrics for their homes, we look at many fabrics until, BOOM! They see the right one. It speaks to them in such a way that they know they found the right fabric.

Drapery Style

Valances, curtains, draperies, cornices and other styles are all possible. Which is the right one? Again, it depends on the customer, but in this case it also depends on coordinating the design with the look of the home. Some people like very modern design, some like very traditional. At Kempler Design, we work with your sense of style, not ours. Our goal is to help you get a look that is perfect for you. The video shows two different curtain styles in the same space.

Drapery Rod Choices

Some window treatments don’t need drapery rods at all, but if you are doing certain curtain styles or draperies, there is nothing better than custom curtain rods. Again, there are so many choices in styles. Metal, Wood, Resin, Acrylic, Glass, Crystal, Finial Types, Shapes of Rods and the list goes on. The style you are trying to match or create will help you decide which is the best choice for you.


When selecting your window treatments, whether curtains, draperies, valances or even hard window coverings, like blinds, shades or shutters, a solid consultation will help you to avoid making costly mistakes. The curtain styles you make will affect your life for years to come. If you do so wisely, the affect will bring a smile to your face for a long time.
