Custom Curtains: 3 Things to Consider

If you are planning to install custom-made curtains in your home, you will need to think carefully about the length you want them to be before you have them made. Any mistakes made when making custom curtains can be costly. The manufacturer will be able to customise the curtain length to suit your individual taste, but there are three standard lengths which are typically used when fitting new curtains.

Window Sill Length

Custom curtains which fall to a level just below the line of the window sill help to create a traditional look within a room. Sill length curtains are a practical option if you wish to open and close the windows on a regular basis, as they allow for easily access to the window handles without the curtain getting in the way. Window sill length curtains are also great for rooms which have low ceilings, as they will help to create a sense of light and space.

Above Floor Length

Custom made curtains which end just above the floor help to create a stylish and modern look within a family home. Above floor length curtains also project a more relaxed appearance, which is particularly suited to sitting rooms and bedrooms, as they help to create a welcoming and inviting atmosphere. If you are not happy with the floor surface in a room, curtains that stop just above the floor can help to draw the eyes of visitors away from the floor and up towards the windows and the view outside.

Floor Length Curtains

Floor length curtains are one of the most popular choices among modern Australian homes. This type of curtain is best suited to a home which has a regular or high ceiling, as otherwise, they can create a cramped rather than a classic look. If you are thinking about installing custom-made floor length curtains, you should ensure that the bottom edge of the curtain lightly touches the surface of the floor without beginning to bunch up. A floor length curtain which is slightly too long can make the fabric look dishevelled. 

If you are thinking about having custom curtains made for your home, you should contact a local curtain manufacturer company today. The company will send a contractor to your home to measure the windows and walls in which the curtain will hang before recommending the best size and cut to suit the different rooms in your home.
