The long and short of hanging your custom curtains and drapes
You can really make a statement in your home by investing in some Milwaukee custom curtains and drapes. After considering elements such as function and utility, as well as picking out the perfect fabric for your living space, one aspect of the decorating process that many people have a difficult time with is determining the length of their window treatments.
At Bazaar Home Decorating, we can create custom window dressings to suit whatever unique vision you have in mind. And if you need a little bit of help or advice, we have friendly, experienced staff members who can work with you to determine what kind of look is best for your home.
When considering the length of your curtains, there are a few options. Let’s take a look:
Long – It might sound pretty straightforward, but there are actually a couple choices when it comes to long window dressings. First, there are the kind that just barely hit the floor. In a formal, dignified, dressy area of your home such as the living room, these floor-length curtains are often the best choice since they provide a classic, tailored look. If you’re going for more of a lush, romantic vibe – perhaps for a master bedroom – panels that extend onto the floor by a few inches are very trendy right now. This length is often more high-maintenance, however, as the fabric collects dust more easily and needs to be moved whenever you vacuum.
Short – There are different kinds of shorter curtains, too. In a utility area such as a kitchen or laundry room, curtains that hit the windowsill are often preferable because they are practical and don’t interfere with anything on the counters. For a casual, relaxed look in an office, for example, you may opt for panels that reach the bottom of the window apron.
