Most designers and decorators know that curtains can totally make a room, but the range of choices and sizes can sometimes seem endless.
Let’s Talk Length
The good news is that for panel length, there isn’t really a wrong or right choice. The length you choose, and how you hang the panels really depends on what type of look you want in your room. We make it easy and offer curtain panels in a range of lengths, for a variety of looks!
Please keep in mind that these measurements all depend on the height of your windows and ceiling!
The Classic Look
Our 63″ curtains are for people looking for a classic, tailored look with the curtain panels ending just below the sill of a standard size window.
The Tailored, Floating Look
Typically, 84” curtain panels will hang (or float) about an inch to three inches from the floor. This size creates a clean, classic look for the room.
The Relaxed Longer Look
Use 96″ or 108″ curtains for a ‘pooling’ effect. These longer-length curtains will create a puddle with excess fabric on the floor, which is the epitome of relaxed chic! This is a great length too if you’re not opening and closing these curtains very often –and a fabulous option if you need to hide uneven floors.
But What about Fabrics and Colors?
Let the sun shine! Sheer and lace panels will let the light in and keep the vibe relaxed in the best possible way.
Linen offers a more tailored look while still creating a relaxed feel.
Lined panels are perfect for the bedroom or any room where you want to be able to control how much light gets in – and when!
Prints are a great way to dress up a room and can help create a more formal look, coordinating with upholstery or other design elements.
