What you should know about these curtain sizes?

Whether in the bedroom or living room, curtains are a great way to decorate any room and help tie the decorative scheme together throughout your home.When buying curtains, as well as considering blackout curtains for bedrooms suitable for sleeping, or plush velvet curtains for a luxurious look in the living room, you need to consider what size curtains would be right for your home.
Choosing the right size comes down to three essential steps:

Step 1: Decide on your Curtain Length


Style-A: Window Sill Hanging
Window sill hanging are best used in kitchens, small dining rooms, reading rooms, attics and other small areas that need to be opened often or kept open all the time.
In this case, you will measure your window length from the top of the curtain rod to the bottom of the window image of curtain length measure.Sill length curtains fall to your windowsill. If your window doesn’t have a sill, they fall right to inner edge of your window’s frame.

Style-B: Below Sill Hanging
Measure the distance from the top of the curtain until the desired length below the sill. The length measured will be equal to your curtain length.Curtain fall just below the windowsill. You can measure from the curtain rod height down to the windowsill then add 2–3 inches. The effect is to make the window look larger. This is suitable for second bedrooms or studies.

Style-C: Floor Length Hanging
This is the most common style of curtain length. You can simply measure from your curtain rod height down to the floor. This style gives everything a refined, finished look.If you Reduce the length measured by 1 cm, so your curtain will hang right above the floor. This will enhance the curtain waves and create a clean look. This is perfect for the kitchen or living room.

Step2: Figure out your window width

By measuring the window width, including the curtain rod. A common mistake people make is to exclude the curtain rod length while selecting their curtain size.Your window width will also also determine the width of your curtain rod. We recommend that your curtain rod be ten inches wider than your window's width. This adds five inches to either side of your window and minimizes the amount of fabric covering your window when your curtains are open.

The general rule is that If your window measures 40" wide (window width x 2 = 80"),  you need curtains that will give a minimum width of 80" or 2 panels for that window. In this case 2 panels will give about 120" to 150" of width which will look nice and full.

If the size is not accurate, it will affect the result. That's why, before buying curtains, it’s crucial to get an accurate measurement of your window’s width.

Step3: Decide how many panels to hang

When you know what the length and width of your curtains. The next step is to figure out the number of panels you want for your window.

The general rule is that If you want to go for one panel only, then the curtain's width and length would equal the measurement you've got. For a set of curtains, you will need to divide the width by 2.For instance, if the width you need is 150 inches, you can either choose a 150 inches' curtain or a set of curtains, each measuring 75 inches.
