More Than Blinds offers fabric blinds, including custom fabric treatments and valance. Call us to learn more about the various options available for custom design and schedule a free, in-home consultation in Northeast Georgia. Sheer curtains can be used to highlight your windows and add a touch of warmth to the room décor. In addition, they can also make a bold design statement by adding color, pattern, or texture. We offer curtains in traditional and contemporary styles with endless possibilities for customization, including unique shapes and details.
With so many options available, you’ll find it easy to coordinate your drapery hardware with existing decor. You can choose matching curtain rods or distinctive finials that harmonize nicely with existing fixtures. Or you may want to select colors that enhance the room’s current look without fighting against it. Custom draperies are also an excellent way to express your personality because there are virtually no limits to fabric choice or design options. You can select a subtle or a bold pattern depending on the decor in the room.
Draperies tend to be the most colorful options on the market, which gives homeowners more freedom to choose colors for the rooms in their home. Also known as “pinch pleat” shades, fabric blinds hold their shape well and last for years when properly taken care of. Blinds that do not have metal components pose little risk of fire accidents, making them a good option for families with small children or pets. Additionally, fabric blinds can be some of the most stylish types of shades, as they tend to show off more patterns and textures than other products. They’re available in a wide variety of colors and designs, making them an excellent option for homeowners who want to switch up their decor often.
You’ll also enjoy how easy it is to clean fabric window treatments. They are much simpler to wash or wipe down than hard-surface window coverings like shutters or blinds. Since children are usually attracted to shiny objects, this can be a great consideration if you have toddlers because metal hardware on traditional blinds poses a choking hazard. Valances are often used as an accent or for functional purposes to conceal blinds or drapery hardware.
Easy and affordable, replaced all our blinds and they look great. Installation was a breeze and the More Than Blinds team was a pleasure to have in my home.

Type of Fabric Treatments
Draperies are window treatments that are made from various heavy fabrics. They are more commonly used in bedrooms to block out light. Drapes come in all colors, patterns, and styles and can be tailored to suit any kind of interior decor. However, because they are generally long, heavy, and stiff, they can bring about a more formal atmosphere. Draperies are perfect for total privacy.
There is not much difference in appearance between draperies and curtains. Nevertheless, curtains are less heavy and are made from lighter, softer materials. They are usually slightly shorter in length than drapes. Curtains can be used in all rooms. They can be made with various fabrics to match all interior styles. Unlined curtains allow for a softer, more sheer look and are perfect if you want to showcase an outdoor area.

How to Choose the Right Drapes or Curtains
This is mostly dependent on your lifestyle and personal preferences. When choosing drapes or curtains, you should consider the following aspects. If you are in the area, stop by our showroom to see and feel which options would be best for you.
Light and noise control.
Darker, thicker draperies allow for less light and noise, while lighter curtains let more natural light in.
Fabric window treatments are easier to clean and maintain than hard-surface materials such as blinds or shutters.
Consider whether you would enjoy the convenience of motorized drapes or if you prefer something more traditional.
Privacy and safety.
When choosing bedroom drapes, you might want to pick an option that provides more privacy than, for example, in the living room. Blackout or lined draperies allow for more privacy, while sheer curtains can showcase outdoor scenery.
Decor and heading styles.
You want your draperies to enhance your room instead of overpowering it. Try to choose colors and styles that will compliment your existing decor. Regarding heading styles, rod pockets have a more minimalistic look, while grommets appear bolder.

According to the Department Of Energy, you can save up to 77% of heat gain with the smart use of window treatments such as draperies. You might not need to use your air conditioning system as often – this can save a lot of energy.
Fabric blinds and window treatments are safer options for children and pets. Traditional blinds have metal hardware, which can be a choking hazard for small children and animals.
Blackout draperies and lined draperies or curtains will provide the most privacy.
Pinch-pleat draperies are usually our most popular offering. They are classic and sophisticated, and they tend to never go out of style.
Draperies should either be one shade darker or lighter than your wall color. However, the important part is that they complement the color of the wall instead of fighting against it.
