All sizes of our finished curtains are marked in width by the size of the drop so that the first number is always the size of the cross and the second is always the smaller size. Our finished curtains are sold in pairs and the dimensions refer to each individual curtain.
Example: If your window is 36 widths (window width x 2 = 72), you will need curtains with a minimum width of 72 or 2 panels for this window. In this case, 2 panels are about 100 to 120 wide which is nice and full. Always round to the nearest whole number.
Width: When we post or write the measurements of the curtains, the width always comes before the fall. The finished curtains are available in three standard widths: 112cm (44 ‘’), 167cm (66 ‘’) or 228cm (90 ‘’). Choose the width that best fits the dimensions of the groove or beam.
Tents are usually delivered in pairs. However, single panel curtains have several uses for covering windows. Several single panels can be combined to protect an extra large window at a low cost. Small windows may only require a single panel attached for more light and then hung directly for privacy.
Single Panel Curtain: As the name suggests, single panel curtains are made from a single piece of fabric. Pairs of Panels: These curtains come in matching pairs so you can hang the two pieces of fabric on either side of the window. This design allows you to let in all the light you want.
- The bottom float - Less than an inch off the ground. If you want to hang the curtains continuously so that they are perfectly straight, the float is the best option for you. It doesn’t touch the ground, just a little.
You need to make sure that the two flat panels are at least one and a half times wider than the curtain rod. Personally, I find they look much better on a double bar width. Give or take a few inches. This means that the curtains have enough fabric to make the folds appear straight when hung on the window.
No, choose the same curtains for the home
Hanging long curtains on a short window is one of the simplest ways to add importance to the window and connect it to the room. Short curtains on a short window draw attention to the size of the window and reduce the importance of the style of the room, window and curtain.
Take the width measurement (say 40 inches) and double or triple it (for a very complete look), for example buy 80 inches or 120 inches of total sheet material for curtains.
The fabric should barely touch the ground or rise up to half an inch wide. It’s also a great approach to coffee curtains (short panels that cover only the bottom of a window and touch the window sill), which work well in places like kitchens and bathrooms where long curtains aren’t practical.
1 panel means a single curtain. You definitely need two for a 90 'wide window.
While small flowers are reminiscent of Victorian-style curtains, small floral prints can also work well in modern decor trends. Simple strands of black flowers running the full length of the bright red, electric blue, or eerie black curtain would look great in a modern space.
Dark curtains work best against light walls (for example, warm white, cream, gray, tan, and even smoky blue walls). Dark walls and dark curtains are too oppressive. Dark does not mean that black, brown or dark gray curtains are also available in trendy and modern colors such as blue or even some red or purple tones.
When it comes to materials, linen, silk, rayon, and velvet are the best choices for window treatment because they tend to hang better, Guercio says. Imitation silk is generally the strongest, he says. And in a particularly sunny room, artificial silk doesn’t spoil as quickly as real silk.
