If you choose translucent curtains such as nets or sheer curtains which can often create a subtle light effect on your room during the day, it is important to remember that these curtains do not provide privacy, especially at night time. These types of curtains can be used in conjunction with opaque curtains to aid in desired privacy. These net curtains can aid in preventing glare during the day, although not totally blocking light. If your window requires more privacy during the day time from peering eyes, consider using sheer or net curtains, along with opaque curtains for night privacy.
Hand, cord or electric operation - Curtain tracks and curtain poles can be hand operated so that many different curtains can operate on one window. This allows curtains of different widths and drops to stack at different locations on the window. In addition they can also be operated as a blind with a cord to avoid handling the curtains or electrically for the extra security and a touch of luxury.
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".
