MAgicFaceHello Everybody! I'm here to talk to you about a question that gets asked a lot around here. What is the difference between curtains and draperies? Is there a difference? Well I've got the answer for you!

Some of us might use the terms interchangeably but there is a difference. Curtains are a lighter fabric that are thin or sheer. They have no lining and therefore do not block out any sunlight and the thin fabric doesn't provide privacy. But, They do come in a nice range of colors and patterns and are usually cost friendly.

Draperies are made of a heavier fabric and are typically lined. Draperies not only block out the light but they also provide insulation to block out heat and cold, they also provide privacy. Depending on your style they can look beautiful and casual or they can be as elegant as you can image.

Sew Fine offers everything you can imagine when it comes to sheers and draperies. We love what we do and we're great at what we do. If you are just moving into a new home or want to redecorate call us and we can help you with window treatments!

Hello everyone,

On Wednesdays we are going to feature one of our many products we offer here at, Sew Fine. We only carry products that we truly believe in, and trust, so you can be assured that what you put into your home is the best quality.

Today we are going to cover Hunter Douglas Silhouette

Silhouette is a blind, shade, and sheer in one. Beautiful fabric vanes are suspended between two sheer panels which diffuse light into the room. You can tilt the vanes to add the privacy you want but still have UV protection from the sheers. The UV protection is not only important to your floors, furniture, and other personal belongings, but also to you. The Silhouette looks great in both streamlined modern or contemporary settings or formal settings when paired with drapery or valances. The optional Lite Rise is available on the Silhouette which allows the vanes to be manually operated without the use of cords. Cord safety is one of Hunter Douglas' concerns to help protect your child or pet and keep them safe.
