Curtains and Window Treatments

Curtains can shield your home from the sun, enhance your décor, and even help you save on your heating and cooling bills. When buying curtains, it's important to measure your windows properly and consider what fabric best meets your needs.

To determine what size curtain to buy, measure the length and the width of your window. For a traditional style, measure the length of the window including the frame and add nine inches to get the length of your curtains, then measure the width and multiply by 1.5 to get the curtains' width. For a contemporary style, which hangs just above the floor, measure your curtains from one inch above the floor to six inches above the top of your window frame. Shop for curtains that are the same length as your measurement and 1.5 times the width of your window. For a fancier style that almost touches the ceiling and hangs on the floor, measure from the ceiling to the floor and add at least eight inches to get the curtains' length, then multiply your window's width by three to get the curtains' width.

Cotton is a popular fabric for curtains because it's easy to clean and maintain. Sheer curtains are good for letting in light, while energy-efficient thermal drapes are good for maximizing privacy and keeping in heat. Vinyl curtains also offer privacy, making them a good choice for bedrooms and bathrooms.
