Drapery panels, hung by a rod, are among the most versatile window treatment styles. Panels hang casually from rings or tabs on a coordinating decorative pole near the ceiling. The fabric can be unlined for a translucent effect or lined to protect the fabric from sunlight. Plenty of fullness allows for privacy and light control, as desired.

For a distinctly modern feel, try hanging sheer voile panels with large grommets on a metal pole. And for a more classic look, use a rich fabric choice and accessorize with trims and tassels.

Many home owners prefer pinch pleated draperies that operate easily on traverse rods. These low maintenance window treatments retain their crisp look for the life of the drapery and are always in style.
