Blinds versus draperies

HHassist's picture

Is there a specific way to know when to use Matchstick blinds versus draperies? I have always wondered this. Today I was reading an article (with lots of pics) and each pic had a different window treatment - but there were two specifically, which used matchstick blinds and I can't even imagine them with draperies, instead. So I'm curious to know if there's something specific about a window (height, width, length, style) that one might automatically go with a blind versus a window treatment?

I'm a huge fan of draperies (because I'm a huge fan of dramatic fabrics), so I think I naturally lean towards fabric.
