HANGING DRAPERIES

Design New England Drapery Rods

Considering buying new window treatments, but not sure how to get that designer look? Here’s a few pointers that can help!

  • Buy drapery panels that will either kiss the floor or puddle on it.
  • To create the illusion of a taller window, mount drapery rods 4″ – 8″ above the window casing.
  • To make your windows appear wider and let in extra light, extend the rods anywhere between 4″ and 10″ (excluding finials) beyond the window casing.
  • Drapery panels should have a combined width of 2-3 times the width of the window so if you have two panels framing a window, each panel should be 1 to 1½ times the window width.
