Drapery and Curtains Design Options

The design options for curtains and drapery describe where the drapery rod will hang on your wall or window and if the drapery will be lined or unlined. These options are mostly a matter of personal preference, but may be slightly more important depending on how the room is styled and set up. Our design consultants have the answers and can help you find the perfect design options for your window treatment project.

Inside Mount
Ideal for mounting inside the window frame and for applications such as the Café mount. The Inside Mount is also great when using Rod Pocket Top and Bottom panels. 
Outside Mount
This is the most common mount for Drapery, with the hardware mounted to the outside of the window frame. 
Light Filtering Lining
For enhanced light control, privacy, and insulation, choose optional light filtering and room darkening Liners. Although not required, optional Linings are highly recommended for windows that will receive a lot of direct sunlight.  A Lining also adds body to the panels and extends the life of Drapery Panels.
  • Our Light Filtering Liners are available in White, Ivory and Tan
Room Darkening Lining
For day sleepers or enhanced privacy, Linings are a natural solution. They also offer increased insulation, thus saving energy and lowering your heating and cooling bills. 
  • Our Room Darkening Liners are available in White, Ivory and Putty.


For the ultimate in added body and insulation to your Panels, consider an Interlining. A 7 oz. felt-like white cloth is placed between the face fabric and lining, offering additional body and insulation. Please note: Must be ordered in conjunction with a Light Filtering, Premium Light Filtering or Room Darkening Lining.
