I believe most any room can benefit from adding drapes. They can visually extend a room–making it look taller or wider, depending on the lengths you use and the patterns. They can add color without a big commitment, and if you choose a pattern, it helps fill a room — again, without investing in a bold patterned sofa that you might hate in three years.

Here are some fun uses of drapes not on windows, because yes, we can hang our drapes where the sun don’t shine…
