Design Tip: Scenic Windows
Do you have a windows with a great view? Or simply want to have more light in the room. We generally recommend that you add an extra 3 inches on each side of the window. This will have the drapes partially block the window on the sides even when the drapes are fully open.
If you want the entire window to show when the drapes are open we recommend adding an extra 25% to the custom drapes. So if the window was 100 inch wide you should look at getting 125 inches of drape. Be sure to also have a bar that does out far enough to let the drapes get out of the way of the window.
