Drapes are an easy and effective way to transform the look of a room by adding colour, texture, and depth to the space. Drapes’ adaptability has grown to the point that they are the focal point of almost every room, from the stage curtains in theatres to the pipe and drape stand backdrops in churches and event centres. Drapes are a bold decorative accent that can completely transform the atmosphere of space when used as a backdrop. They become the focal point when they are placed in a room. Pipe drape setups, on the other hand, are essential for any event, especially those held in less-than-ideal settings, since they allow for the creation of makeshift areas where none existed previously.
Figure Out Where You Will Be Installing Your Pipe Drape Set and Which Kind You Should Get
Before making the purchase, you should know your intended use for the pipe drape set. Which wall do you plan on hanging them in? There are different drapery options; they differ on the basis of versatility in design, colour, pattern, and level of transparency. You can choose a drape according to the event you are hosting. For instance, Sheer Voile is not the fabric of choice for formal events like press weddings, conferences and speeches. Velour or simple polyester fabric is preferable for simple events instead. Banjo curtains are just somewhat opaque, so they aren’t the best choice for privacy booths, but Commando drapes are 99% opaque; therefore, they are suitable. Consider the occasion and purpose of your pipe and drape stand to help you choose the best background drape for your needs.
Have a strategy for the future
There is a wide range of available pipe and drape kit heights. If you know you’ll be using the background in the same space at the same height, acquiring it in advance is a breeze. However, things may become trickier if you plan on utilising your gear for various events, at various locations, or for various customers, each of whom may have unique needs. The standard height for pipe and drape is 8 feet, but if you cater to a wide range of clientele, you can get requests for much taller structures (or 12 feet tall, etc.). The good news is that you can get pipe and drape kits with various height adjustments. Be sure to think about the set’s future in its entirety. An 8-foot-tall fixed-height kit might be the best option if you know you won’t need any more height than that. But if the future holds surprises, you should consider getting a kit with a few different adjustments.
Think about the existing furnishings in the space drapes are hanging in.
The colour of the drapes should be carefully considered before purchase since they are one of the first things guests and visitors see when they enter a room. Choosing a shade that harmonises with the room’s existing furnishings, artwork, and decor is essential. Pipe drapes enhance the aesthetic value of a well-coordinated space. However, sets may be utilised to completely reinvent a room that is ordinarily uninteresting or bland. Check the dimensions of the space and the colour scheme to ensure that the furniture you choose will look well in it.
What else do you require?
Pipe and drape backgrounds, when accessorised properly, may look spectacular, as seen by any image search result. Many other techniques, such as uplighting and layered curtains, may be used to improve the visual appearance of your system. To that end, consider what extras you’ll need to complete your project. Accents for your set may include valance hangers for layers of drapery, lights, drape tie-back bands, signs, and so on.
