There are a number of options available, all of which offer their own benefits and can be used to create different styles and moods. Here are a few of the most popular treatments:

Wave-Fold / Ripple-Fold

Wave-Fold or Ripple-Fold is a drape that, when hung on a ripplefold drapery rod, creates the look of a continuous wave when closed. The rod nearly disappears, creating a soft, floating look great for contemporary spaces.

Sheers look great with a ripplefold. The wave-like folds give the sheers a gentle, flowing look. They look great attached close to the ceiling or hung from the ceiling. They are a good choice for both residential and commercial spaces because of the minimal look they give, without any pleating

Inverted Pleat

This style, known as Inverted Pleating, creates a simple, modern look which also requires less fabric than some other styles.

Plain fabrics or those with textured weaves are complemented best by this treatment, which also stacks efficiently when curtains are drawn back from the window.

Triple Pinch Pleat

Triple Pinch pleats are groups of triple pleats, spaced evenly along the curtain, which create a formal heading, with the benefit of very neat stacking to the side.

This style is ideal for a formal dining room or can be used for practical reasons where there is not much wall space beside the window.

Double Pinch Pleat

Double Pinch Pleats, this treatment has the benefits of Triple Pleating but creates a style which balances casual with traditional, perfect for any room setting.

This style works equally well with prints, but is seen at its best with textured plains.

Pencil Pleating

Pencil pleating is one of the most common treatments, using a greater width of fabric with evenly spaced narrow pleats.

This treatment is versatile, working well with prints and plains and most different textures. The finish is casual and cosy, perfect for the lounge or bedroom.

Tap Top Curtains

The tab top treatment gives drapes an informal feel, ideal for bedrooms. This style is seen at its best with light, simple fabrics, and in neutral colours or pastel shades which will provide contrast with the rod.

This style is especially suitable for sheers or voiles, or where drapes will not be regularly pulled open and closed as tab tops are not the easiest drapes to pull across the rod.
