If you’re not in the market for custom drapes and curtains, pre-made curtain panels are a great option. They come in many styles, colors and fabrics, go up easily and can be inexpensive. You can create many wonderful looks just by varying hardware and other elements.
Most curtain panels come in a standard width of about 54”. While this may be sufficient for many windows, if you’re trying to hang curtains on sliding glass doors or other large windows, they won’t be wide enough. In order to make them work on bigger windows, you’ll have to use multiple panels.
When using several curtain panels to span a window, you have a couple of options. You can put them side by side and just let them hang straight down or you can use a tieback or holdback to have them frame the window. This can cause gaps between the panels. You can eliminate these by using double-sided tape made for clothing (so you can pull it off without damaging the fabric). Put several strips down the edge of one curtain and press the two panels together. Adjust the folds to further hide the evidence. You’ll end up with a great look for less than the cost of custom curtains.
On other windows, you can use the panels to create the illusion of larger windows. To make windows look taller, hang the rod close to the ceiling and use curtains that are long enough to fall to the floor from that height. If you want to make a window look wider, extend the rod farther out from the windows and hang the panels, making sure they cover the edges of the window.
Measuring For Curtains
Getting the perfect look for your pre-made curtains requires a little preparation and planning, but it will be worth it when you’re done and your new curtains are in place.
After you’ve chosen the style of curtain you want, you need to decide if you want them to skim the floor, puddle (actually sit on the floor so the fabric pools at the bottom), or end at some other point. From there, you can decide where your curtain rod will go. About six inches above the window frame is typical, but it will depend on the length of the panels you want and where you want them to hit.
You’ll also want to determine how much of the window and frame you’d like to cover. Again, six inches above the frame is average, with two to three inches on either side. The farther you go outside the frame, the more light the curtains can keep out.
With measurements in hand, you can purchase your curtains. If the panels you want are not wide enough to span the window the way you’d like, you can double them up to get the effect you’re looking for. You can use clips or Velcro to attach two panels together at the top and bottom edges. The seam can be hidden in the folds when the panels have been hung.
