Buying Your Curtains Online? How Long Do They Need To Be?

If you’re new to the world of window treatments and you’ve decided to order your curtains online from Quickfit Blinds & Curtains, then you’ve found the right blog article for you! You may be wondering how long your curtains or drapes need to be. On average, ready-made curtain and drape panels come in lengths ranging from 63 to 144 inches. Make sure you take a measurement from the floor up to where you plan on hanging your curtain rod, and then round up.

Curtains Hitting The Floor Or Sill

This classic look makes the most sense if you’re going to be opening and closing your curtains a lot. The fabric of your curtains should just touch your floor or hover no more than a half an inch above the floor. This is also a great way to hang your cafe curtains in areas such as kitchens and bathrooms where longer curtains aren’t necessary or practical.

Curtains Breaking Slightly At Your Floor

The most stylish way to hang your curtains currently is to have them extend onto your floor by one to three inches. This creates a more relaxed atmosphere that you can’t get with curtains that simply graze the floor. This style is also very forgiving for those who have uneven flooring or are worried about precisely measuring their panel length.
