Double Insulated Heavy Drapes & Pelmets

We’re probably all aware that amongst the most thermally effective window coverings are heavy lined drapes and box pelmets. The pelmet is very important because they eliminate the airflow going down behind the drapes.

One way to rejuvenate all drapes is to simply sew the new material onto the old. That way you get a new look, you get added insulation, and you don’t trash the old drapes and linings. Bear in mind though you’re probably going to need a curtain maker to help you do that.
