Help with hanging a curtain
April 8, 2014 in Design Dilemma
Is it okay to just cover the window or should the curtains cover the entire wall? Note: I know the hardware needs replacing :)

How wide you hang the curtain is personal preference. I would think you would want it to extend 6-8 past the edge of the window to eliminate light peaking from behind and afford you more privacy. The panels themselves should total, in width, 2-3 times the width of the window and just skim the floor.

Personally, I would have a pair of panels that you can open and close, on each side of the window and have a flat or hobbled, functional Roman shade over the glass. Also, I would put a matching shade over the door, mounted at the same height as the window. Both shades can be black-out lined for light control.

I like the idea, but my wife wanted the natural light from over the door so we left it uncovered.

Maybe not the entire wall, but I think the drapes should be a bit wider...even 4 inches past the edge of the window would be nice. And somewhat longer maybe?
