Curtains and drapes are a great way to accentuate any décor, as they allow you to add rich textures and can tie together various colors and designs within a room. Drapery ranges from light and airy to heavy and bold, and works well on its own or in combination with other window treatments.

Curtain and Drapery Considerations

  • The panel height reflects the height of the finished product, including the pleat. We recommend the finished curtain length be 1/2” off the floor.
  • Consider your view outside when selecting how you’d like your draperies to open. If you want two panels that split in the middle and stack to the sides evenly, choose split panel when customizing your product. Choose single panel if you want one panel that stacks all to one side.
  • You can pair curtains and draperies with other window treatments for maximum light control and insulation.
