Curtain Style / February 6, 2019 / Aaliyah Dotson.
When you choose your curtains for any particular room, consider the aesthetic appeal of the room, whether the curtain enhances a certain style or colour, if done properly the curtain will not only enhance the style of the room, but adds an opulent feel to any space. Be aware that the incorrect choice such as curtains which are dirty and unkempt or miss-matched can give any room an extremely gloomy, uneasy look. When decorating your home with curtains, consider the underside of the curtain, and how it will appear from the outside, especially if your window is street or entrance facing.
Easy to keep clean - Blinds can be dust traps, especially horizontal ones. As more people are sufferin from asthma and dust allergies, curtains are a healthy choice, requiring little care to keep them clean and presentable. The tracks and poles need little servicing and the curtains need only be vacuumed or dry cleaned on the odd occasion.
Once a style is determined, calculate the height and length of the curtain necessary to cover the intended space. The length should generally be 15% wider than the length to be covered. For a more ruffled look, add 30% to the length. For example: you require 220" of length to cover your space. You would then multiply 220" x .15 and come up with 33"; add the 33" to the original 220" and you will need to order a length of 253".
