How do I protect these fabulous new custom drapes from my radiator?
- Add an inexpensive shelf – lined with sheet metal – to protect the bottom portion of your drapes from Steam and Heat (try Ikea & Hardware stores)
- Purchase a pre-fab kitchen cabinet (upper if possible) and use that as a box to surround the radiator. Make certain the doors have cutouts so steam and heat can escape.
- Use tie backs to keep the lowest portion of the drapes off the heat source
- Use heat resistant tiles & trivets atop the radiator for a decorative way to puddle the drapes. Have some fun with these from Designer Cooking stores! Check out Byung-seok You’s Natural Wave.
