Draperies: Our Picks for Trending Custom Drapery Styles for 2022 & Ordering and Installation Timelines.

Categorised in: ,

New 2022 trends for window coverings in Ontario build on a soft and relaxing 2021 minimalist feel. Drapery trends see even the chill group wanting to kick up their heels a bit, and colour accents with special-order window treatments and draperies are popular. So, what style are you?


The trend of custom window coverings gives you your best options; weighty, gauzy or textured fabrics, and drapery colours are determined by a room’s style, location and usage.

And that is when a drapery designer becomes the solution to your questions. The assuredness from living and breathing design, as a designer does, cannot be replicated by looking through online photos, especially when it comes to drapery fabrics.

  • A designer helps to decide the weight of the drapery against the existing or intended interior.
  • The location of your drapery determines the kind of lining or even the need for a lining.
  • Our specialized decorators will help unite your new custom drapery colour and style with your artwork and furniture.


Designing your home has been made easy in the past decade, so here are a few new easy directions you can go with your drapery in 2022. Please get inspired by our Covers Designers’ Edge Gallery of Work

The beauty of design is its morphing and reflection of society’s cadency, and we can be thankful, living in Canada, that we have the privilege of enjoying this season’s sense of optimistic renewal.

  • Tone-on-tone Scandinavian palettes; structured white walls are the backdrop for warm and off-whites. Adding punctuations of colour into these rooms with coloured drapery creates a beautiful design layer and highlights a season of hope.
  • The psychology of the Japanese influence allows for the nurturing of imperfections, natural palettes and textural beauty that we all need.
  • A subtle Bohemian mix can be the perfect marrying of your treasured pieces brought into the present realm with a contemporary drapery, brightly coloured or not.

Lucky for us all, a set of new draperies offers three design-essential components to a room’s refresh.

  • A punctuation of colour is one of drapery’s best talents.
  • Your new drapes or curtains are a much-needed textural, or purposeful lack of, layering element.
  • Draperies are first functional and can elevate a room’s usage dramatically, as its long-awaited solution.



Are you planning an eagerly anticipated family holiday meal? Would you love to entertain with a new set of drapes and window coverings?

The ordering, manufacturing and installing of drapes and curtains take time, and your planned festivities may happen before your drapery project is ready. If the pandemic has shown us something other than the understanding of life’s fragility, it is that we must wait sometimes for those things worth waiting for.

A true story about not wanting to wait; A designer showed a client custom drapery that solved all desires and ticked every box. When the four-month timeline felt long, the customer opted to find a ready-made set of drapes and rationalized that a neutral colour would be fine. The result was less in price, but also in terms of the design outcome.



Timelines to remember for ordering, manufacturing and installation of your drapery:

Ordering: Depending on the busyness of the season and the fabric, 8 – 16 weeks (2 – 4 months) is a reasonable timeline for the ordering of your draperies to their installation. Choose from Covers Designer Edge Signature Fabric Collection to save on those timelines. Start HERE.

Manufacturing: Our Designer Edge Series is sewn in Ontario with the shortest manufacturing timeline and most eco-friendly carbon footprint.

Installations: Our courteous installers have been professionally trained and will lead you step-by-step through the installation process. We provide you with a 1 – 2 week notice before your installation date.
