Custom Curtains & Draperies

If you ever hear the word “drapery”, the first thing that probably comes to your mind are the old, outdated curtains most likely hung in your grandmother’s home. However, curtains have come a long way since then and now feature tons of modern colors, styles, and patterns that will look amazing in any home. At Barrows Custom Window Treatments, we offer a wide selection of gorgeous fabric and can help you create the perfect custom curtains and draperies to meet a variety of needs.


Custom curtains and draperies are a great way to add a little extra privacy to your home. Whether you’re using them by themselves or layering them over other window treatments, the solid layer of fabric can help keep prying eyes out of your home. Plus, they can be easily opened and closed for quick adjustments.

Light Control

The fabric you choose for your custom curtains and draperies will also help you get the level of light control you want in your home. Sheer fabrics offer gentle light diffusion to soften harsh sunlight and provide better illumination to your home. Opaque fabrics, on the other hand, are great for bedrooms and media rooms because they can keep more light out and reduce glares. For room darkening curtains, you’ll also want to choose darker fabrics.

Window Insulation

Windows are great features of your home, but they can make rooms drafty. Luckily, custom curtains and draperies can solve this problem. Choosing thick, heavy fabrics for your drapery can allow you to insulate your windows and keep the internal temperature of your home more constant.

Room Style

When it comes to custom curtains and draperies, there are tons of styles you can choose from. Formal dining rooms may benefit from long curtains that pool elegantly on the floor. However, if you’re looking to outfit a more casual room like a living room, you may want to opt for a basic pinch pleat. Whatever your style needs are, we can help you find the right drapery for your home.
