A Stack-Right Drape is a single panel that when opened will stack (gather) the drape on the right side of your window when looking at it from the inside of your room. Traverse Drapes are used with a traverse rod or manually with a rod and drapes on rings. Single panel drapes are common for sliders and French doors. You typically want the drape to stack away from the functioning side of the slider or French door.

Stumped on how to handle large windows or as some people call them a wall of windows? There is no doubt that multiple windows on a wall or multiple sliding glass doors or multiple French doors can be a challenge. However, we have many ways to tackle big windows using decorative window treatments or privacy and light control window treatments. To help with heating costs, we can add insulated window treatments to reduce drafts caused by large windows.
To get started, ask yourself, what exactly do I need to accomplish? Whether you need full black out drapes for sleeping and privacy or just decorative panels, both can look stunning. Generally speaking, decorative panels use less fabric and will cost less money. In this picture, we show one width decorative panels in a grommet drape style. This is simple and elegant with a bit more contemporary look. We love the sleek lines of the panels which give the room dimension and subtle accent color. Drapes don’t always have to scream “look at me”. The color block drape seen here can be found in our custom drape department. Using two coordinating solid fabrics can really make your drapes go from ordinary to spectacular by simply adding another color.
This room scene shows 4 panels on 2 rods. As an alternative, this window treatment project could have been done with one continuous rod and 3 panels. In that case, we would have recommended the 3 panels be 1.5 widths of fabric to give the center panel a bit more fullness.
If you love the “light” decorative panel look but need some privacy, you can add a sheer window treatment or sheer curtain and maintain the sleek contemporary look of this room.
