I know I've seen the technical distinction between each of these, but can't find it. Anyone know?
Curtains - Plural of the above.
Drape - A generic term much like Kleenex
Draperies - Again a plural.
So borders and valances are not curtains because they don't reach the floor?
Kleenex is a brand of tissue. Drape is a brand of ...?
Clothes my ex-fiance' used to wear (OUCH!)...
Curtains are vertical sheets of cloth,
Drapes are horizontally run pieces of cloth.
Practicly the terms are interchangeable.
Imagine a single piece of cloth that starts on the floor runs up to a drapery post or valance bx above a windowdrapes across the top of the box making a pretty, then proceeds across another drapery post and down to the floor, That would be a drape. Curtains just hang, and stop at teh top and bottom. I believe there is something I read once that said drapes just hang and curatins are movable...... Hmm I guess I better go read up.
