Quick Guide To Hanging Curtains
When planning a window treatment (curtains), careful measuring is key to achieving the look you want.
-Mount curtains as high and close to ceiling as possible to give the room more height and let them break one and half inches on the floor.
-Curtains should be about three times the width of the window. So for instance, if you're doing two panels, each should be about one and half times the window width.
-Also, remember to buy a rod that is about 20 inches wider than your window so it extends 10 inches on each side. Your window will seem much wider than it really is and will allow in lots of light.

Choosing Your Style:
Before ordering or picking your preferred curtain style, decide on the look you want, then measure from the rid to the floor or the exact length you want. You can figure an extra 4inch so that the fabric can fold over.
You Can Use The Guide Below To Determine Your Preferred Curtain Panel Height:
1. Sill Length: curtain rubs the window sill. This creates a more casual look and very suitable for windows that open frequently.
2. Apron Length: This style falls about 4inches below the window sill. This is very practical in kitchens and bathrooms.
3. Floor length: curtain slightly kisses the floor about a quarter inches above the floor. It gives a polished, pulled-together look and visually lengthens the window.
4. Extra-long Puddle length: this style usually puddles about 6-10 inches extra on the floor and gives a very romantic and luxurious feel. However, not recommended for high traffic areas.
