Foolproof Tips for Hanging Event Drapery Panels

Do you need to design a big event space coming up for your company? If so, then you'll want to take full advantage of drapery panels. If you're new to hanging drapery panels, then you've come to the right place. We're here to teach you how to set up your drapes with style to enhance the look of any space. When you’re ready, take a trip through our foolproof tips for hanging event drapery panels.

Keep Them Safe and Stunning

One of the best benefits of event drapes is how they can visually transform the venue. However, safety will always be more important than aesthetics. Simply put, make sure you’re not setting up drapes in a hazardous way.

For instance, event drapes should never obscure fire exits, sprinklers, and other safety essentials. Plus, certain fabrics differ in fire protection capabilities. As you can see from our selection of pipe and drape panels, Banjo drapes are Inherently Flame Retardant (IFR.) On the other hand, our Economy Non-FR drapes are Non-Flame Retardant (NFR.)

Remember Complimentary Colors

Safety is essential, but that doesn’t mean you have to entirely throw style by the wayside. Thus, one of our foolproof tips for hanging event drapery panels is making sure they mix with your color palette. When you choose drape fabrics that echo your event’s theme, guests can truly feel immersed in the atmosphere upon arrival. The flowing fabric of drapery panels can substantially transform the venue to meet your aesthetic needs, so choose wisely.

Luckily, thanks to the many options available, you can choose easily, too. For example, those aforementioned Banjo drapes are available in vibrant colors, such as orange and red. That said, they’re also available in black, charcoal, and other darker colors if that’s what the event calls for.

Find the Right Size

As mentioned above, drape panels can encompass the room in eye-popping colors and enticing textures. However, not every event requires the same sized panels. Sometimes, a 3-foot-tall Premier drape panel is all you need to bring that subtle but stylish touch to a venue. However, for those areas that require more extensive touchups, 12-foot-tall options, among larger drapes, are available to help.

By keeping safety, style, and size in mind when choosing event drapes, your venue will come together brilliantly once you hang them up. If this is your first time using event drapery panels, it might be hard to picture how drastically they impact the event space. However, once you set them up, they’ll become a go-to decoration for any other event you put together.
