Some people prefer to use silk drapes during spring and summer seasons only as it will be warm at that time. They will replace it with something warm and heavy during fall and winter. At the same time here are still others who like to keep the silk drapes through out the year.

Some precautions should be taken if you are using silk drapes. Silk drapes may tend to wrinkle easily, so you will have to be prepared for it. Here are some tips to rectify it. You can remove the wrinkles by using steam iron or by keeping a humidifier in the room for some hours. If it is a dry weather the silk drapes may not hang as they should due to static.

Since the silk drapes are very light there is no need of any heavy type of curtain rods to hang them. A standard curtain rod only is needed. Decorative curtain rods are available with my retailers which can give a very impressive classic look to the room. You can decorate the room according to the look you want to give for the room.

Silk drapes are usually more expensive than any other type of materials used for curtains. But you don't have to hesitate to decorate your room with silk drapes.
