Goodmorning everyone! I finally found the curtains i love but i have noticed they are only 42wide. Currently I have Ikea curtains that are 54wide and they cover my window nicely. Would i need 2 panels for each side. Also, i am afraid it wont look good because of its design. Should i keep looking or can i make this work?! thanks!

Don't like the blue and white design. Looks like you are trying to match rug. Just hang one panel on each side of window. They are not meant to cover whole window just frame it. Go with a white linen.

You love your curtains and that's all that matters. One pair should be fine. They'll still cover the window if/when you need privacy.

3x the width of the window , looks like you have 1 white and 2 blue on each side either add another white on each side or get 4 more panels of the blue ,you need more fullness

Can you get these curtains in a longer length? If so, I would raise them up some. And, if these are also available in the solid blue, I would add that to the outside of these for more fullness. Rod will need to go a tad wider to accomodate.

Take your current curtains with you to the store and look at them together.
