We like to focus on a few key areas when determining the length and style that's right for your space and your needs...
Your curtains should be two to three times the width of your window. Our curtain panels are 50” wide so we recommend purchasing one for windows 25” or less and two for windows 26-50” in width.
Your rod placement will inform the curtain length you choose. If you want to make a room feel larger, we suggest installing your curtain rod 4-6 inches above the window frame and 3-6 inches beyond each side of the frame. If you need a curtain rod, you can purchase one from us here or check out our roundup of rod style favorites. For our curtains, we recommend purchasing a rod 1/2" in diameter.
To figure out the appropriate length, begin by measuring the distance between the rod and floor. Next, you have to determine the draping style that is best for your space. For a clean look, the fabric should fall 1/2" above the floor (subtract 1/2" from your measurement) and for a puddling effect, add 4-6" to the rod to floor measurement.
