Rosetta Tordis. Curtains. July 11th , 2017.
How will your rods be hung - inside or outside the window frame? For outside the frame - on the wall: the idea here is usually to cover the window completely. Measure 2-5" out from each side of the window trim. The total curtain rod length should be about 12" longer than your window width. And don't be fooled: measure each window in the room - they may look the same size, but they may not be!
The first company to match up the window covering colours with their bedding set patterns was a company by the name of Croscill Bedding. The first matching patterns that Croscill offered were known as Arsenic and Old lace, coined from a popular Cary Grant movie. Because of their original ideas that were such a breakthrough in design, they have become one of the biggest names in themes for your bedroom. Today you can get and entire decorative motif from Croscill that spans from bedroom to bathroom. If you don't have the funds for a professional interior decorator, you can shop Croscill and get everything that you need to successfully decorate your home in an elegant fashion on your own. Other companies soon followed suit, and today you can find window treatments for every room and any style imaginable. Many companies now offer patterns in similar colour schemes which can be mixed and matched to suit a variety of tastes.
Cafe Curtains with Swag Valance Cafe curtains are frequently used in kitchen windows, but it can also be used to give two story windows a stylish flair. Mount one drapery rod midpoint from the top window and another just below the ceiling. Choose a rich fabric material like silk dupioni, taffeta or raw silk and hang it from the bottom drapery rod. Allow the drapes to pull to the floor to soften the look. On the top drapery rod, install swag valance in a geometric or floral print making sure that the colors of both the swag fabric and drapery fabric complement one another. Silk and satin swag valance looks the best in such windows and you can trim the valance with tassels and ribbons for a fancier look.
2. Measure the Size Measure the window where you will be hanging the curtain. The length should be measured from the curtain rod to just above the floor or till wherever you want it to hang. Once you measure the length, add about 4-5 inches for hemming. For the width, the general rule is 2 times the width of the window, but you can take how much ever you want. If you want to cover it completely, take more fabric.
