Location, location, location. Oversize foyer windows, patio doors, grand picture windows, sliding glass doors, etc. are often tricky to dress because of their rather large size. Not only are they wide, but the sizes are less likely to be standardized so it’s hard to find large curtains that are wide enough while also suiting the aesthetic. For clients looking to avoid the functional and aesthetic challenges of using multiple curtain panels in these areas, our extra wide drapery comes as the perfect solution.

Full & luxurious look. If you want drapery that spells sheer luxury, do not be stingy on panel widths. Wider panels mean more gather and therefore a more opulent look for your windows. Our standard recommendation is 2x fullness factor to get¬†double width curtain panels. But if budget allows, it’s well worth making the leap to 3x fullness factor when ordering big curtains to get richer, denser fall and drape.

Drape a wall. Drapes are just for windows, aren’t they? Au contraire, more and more designers are now opting to drape entire walls and not just windows. In this approach, the decorator stretches a drape across the entire stretch of wall from edge to edge. The goal is to add visual interest and texture to a room through the depth, warmth, and softness that drapes can bring. If you want to try this for yourself, some of the most popular extra wide curtains for the purpose are flat panel tops and ripplefold. As these styles have a defined, almost architectural appearance to them thanks to the defined and consistent curves.

What’s the big idea? Extra wide curtain panels can do a lot for your interiors, but you should know how to make the most of them. The single most common mistake clients make when buying/installing drapery is not extending the poles beyond window frames. Larger drapes benefit from hanging on a curtain rod that’s 12-24 inches wider than the windows. Installing poles that are only as long as the window is a mistake because it means that the double width curtain panels will stack over the window, disrupting your ability to control light flow. It also presents a smaller, less impressive image while potentially failing to frame the whole window. By allowing your wide curtains to stretch comfortably beyond the width of your windows, you can improve light flow and create a grander, more elegant atmosphere.
