Grommet drapes and curtains include plastic, rubber, or metal rings (called "grommets") that are spaced along the top to allow for easy opening and closing.

This also reduces the friction usually caused by fabric to make sliding the drapes virtually effortless (even on tall or large windows). Combined with decorative hardware, grommet curtains make a bold, modern statement, accented by the soft folds of fabric that draw the eyes upward when the curtains are open. 

The look can be softened or made even bolder depending on the choice of fabric and color. Choose grommet curtains with an extra inch of length for a flowing, elegant look.

NY City Blinds can create custom grommet curtains that can be placed on any size or shape window.

What are Grommet Drapes? 

You may know of this drapes style because the typical shower curtains are made with grommets. Grommets are the tiny rings that are attached to and the holes in textile fabrics. They're small on shower curtains, so with those you attach curtain rings when hanging them. With window curtains and drapes, though, you merely put the curtain rod throughout the grommets. This makes hanging them a breeze! Grommets on curtains are usually made of metal, although there are grommets made of rubber and plastic as well. Pair grommet top drapes with the proper hardware and you'll have stylish, finished, and functional window treatments in no time.

Grommet Drapes in Many Styles

One great aspect of the grommet drapes is, in some cases, the ability to choose the finish of the grommets. Grommets come in a variety of different finishes-black, antique brass, polished brass, copper, chrome, the list goes on. We will match your grommet top finish to your curtain rods for a classier look, and choose a finish to tie your space together
