Sew Your Curtains with easy ways. The Real Guide

Choosing the right size curtains for your windows is an important consideration, as the wrong size can impact the look and functionality of your window treatments. In this post, we\’ll provide a real guide to help you determine the size curtains you need for your home.

The first step in determining the size curtains you need is to measure the width of your window. Measure the width of the window frame at the top, middle, and bottom, and use the longest measurement as your guide. This will ensure that your curtains will properly cover the entire window.

Consider your personal design style when choosing the size curtains you need.

The type of curtain rod you choose will impact the size curtains you need. If you plan to use a standard rod, you will need to choose curtains that are at least 2-3 times the width of your window. If you plan to use a decorative rod with finials, you will need to choose curtains that are at least 1.5-2 times the width of your window.

The length of your curtains is also important to consider. For standard windows, it is generally recommended to choose curtains that extend at least 1-2 inches above the top of the window frame and touch the floor or extend to the bottom of the window sill. For windows that are higher up on the wall, you may want to choose longer curtains that extend to the floor or puddle slightly on the ground.

The hanging style of your curtains will also impact the size you need. If you plan to hang your curtains from the ceiling or above the top of the window frame, you will need to choose longer curtains. If you plan to hang your curtains inside the window frame, you will need to choose curtains that are the same length as the window or slightly shorter.
