CEILING MOUNT

Mounted to the ceiling or dustcap of a cornice. This hardware is used the most of any type, minimizing light bleed and offering the tallest of treatments.

 
 

WALL MOUNT

Mounted wall brackets above window but below ceiling. Blocking and treatment weight are relevant factors. The bottom of the bracket creates a ‘ceiling’ that the track attaches to.

MANUAL/BATON

The baton attaches directly to the master carrier and allows for manual push/pull of the panel to open and close; however, it can be placed on the back for aesthetics.

WALL MOUNT

Specialized hardware, available in a multitude of colors and types that can be used to add an extra design factor to any treatment. this option is able to be wall or ceiling mounted, manual, cord drawn, or motorized.

 
 

DRAPERY FULLNESS

Fullness, simply put, is the ratio of fabric used to cover an opening.

 

THE THEORY

 

Fullness is placing a large amount of fabric into a small area. That ratio is fullness. The extra fabric is absorbed by the pleats; it’s why a drape doesn’t look like a shower curtain when closed.
