Have Oversized Windows In Your Home? Learn How To Have Custom Curtains Created

Posted on

Having large, oversized windows in your home can create a unique look. They often add character to your home, but it can be hard to find curtains for them because of their size. If you have oversized windows in your home, use the following guide to learn how to have custom curtains created to hang on them:

Determine How Large You Want the Curtains to Be

The first thing you need to do is determine how large you want the curtains to be when they are finished. Determine if you want the curtains to be made with two panels or just one panel. Measure the width of the window with a tape measure. Determine where you want the top of the curtains to hit on the window when you hang them and where you want the bottom of the curtains to stop and take that measurement, as well.

Determine the Style of Curtains You Want to be Created

Next, you need to determine what style of curtain you like. You can choose to have the curtains simply hang straight to the floor, have grommets added to the top of them so that you can use a decorative curtain rod to hang them, or even have ruffles created to add a feminine look to a room. You may want to look at a few curtains online or in a décor, magazine to get an idea of the different options that are available.

Choose the Fabric You Want Used to Create the Curtains

Go to a fabric store and look for fabric that you want to use to create the curtains. Heavy, thick fabric will be great for blocking sunlight when needed, but can often be very expensive. You need to take the time to consider how many yards of fabric will be needed to create the curtains and how much the fabric costs per yard to determine what the cost for just the fabric will be.

Once you have the fabric you want used to make the curtains and know what style of curtain you want, you will be ready to go to a custom curtain maker and have your one-of-a-kind creations made. It will take some time for the designer to create your curtains because they will be so large in size. Once they are finished, you will be able to hang them right away and start enjoying the finished look in your room.
