Custom Drapery

A room's design isn’t complete without window treatments, and custom-made draperies are an elegant choice for every room. Drapery doesn’t have to be stuffy and over the top. Today’s drapery blends seamlessly with every aesthetic, and Kao’s Pacific can’t wait to share our custom drapery options with you.

What is the Process for Custom-Made Draperies?

We begin by getting to know you so we can make recommendations that best suit your needs. Our designers ask questions such as:

  • Do you want room-darkening fabric for a bedroom?
  • Are you hanging drapery in a formal or casual space?
  • What is your preference regarding length?

Designing Your Custom Drapery

Choosing the fabric you love is the beginning of the custom drapery process. You have many other decisions to make, including:


  • Brackets that attach rods to wall or ceiling
  • Rods that hold the drapery
  • Finials that add decorative flair to the ends of rods and help prevent panels from sliding off
  • Tiebacks that attach to the wall on either side of the window allow you to hold your drapery open in a stylish manner


Headers are the top portion of the drapery panel that holds the rod. The header style you choose will significantly affect the overall aesthetic of your drapery. There are many header styles available, but the following are the most common choices:

  • Rod Pocket: This is a classic choice that holds the rod in a fabric pocket. Because the rod is concealed, this style is great if you have a tight hardware budget.
  • Tab Top: A row of fabric tabs spaced at regular intervals through which the rod is threaded. It lends a modern, relaxed appearance and is excellent for casual settings.
  • Grommet: A grommet header has circular cutouts lined with plastic or metal rings. It is a fantastic choice in rooms where you want the most natural light. It looks best in contemporary or industrial décor styles.
  • Pinch Pleat: The fabric at the top of the drapery is pinched together to form a pleat; two-finger pinch pleats and three-finger pinch pleats are the most frequently used. Pinch pleats work best with heavier fabric that will hold its shape and are ideal for formal spaces.


One primary difference between drapery and curtains is the length of the fabric. Curtains break at or just below the window sill, while drapery can break just above or at the floor or form a dramatic fabric puddle. We suggest drapery that breaks ¼” above the floor if you're dressing windows in an informal space. This length is enough to offer a look of sophistication but isn’t as high maintenance as longer panels.
