When you're looking for chic window coverings, selecting the right size and style drape may seem daunting. Fortunately, our guide on how to choose curtains can help you determine the length and type of fabric you require, as well as how to hang those curtains correctly the first time.
A good set of drapes
can make a space feel finished and elegant while insulating the room from sunlight, cold, or heat. But how do you figure out what you need for your space?
Sheer panels filter just enough light through while affording you a bit of privacy. Choose patterned drapes for an extra dimension of texture in a space. Insulated curtains better block out light and increase your sense of privacy.
To determine the length of curtains you need, measure your window and then decide how you want the curtains to hang. Floating curtains, which have a hem sitting about ½ to 1 inch above the floor, make for a tailored look; while breaking and pooling curtains, both of which drape on the floor, offer casual-chic and elegant vibes, respectively.
Before you hang those curtains, though, determine the goal for your room. Do you want to add the illusion of more height in the room? Hang your rods higher. Are you looking to make a too-small window seem larger? Add visual width with wider curtain rods. For spaces that have few windows, you can even add curtains to a wall or behind a headboard to create the impression of a window on a wall.
