STEP 1 - Mounting Your Hardware

Grand & Glamorous Look - To add height to your room and create loads of drama, we suggest mounting your curtain rod close to your ceiling or crown molding.  

Traditional Look - mount your curtain rod approximately 4" above your window.

 

STEP 2 - How Long?

Measuring for length should be dictated by the look you are trying to achieve. 

Traditional, Tailored, Contemporary Look - measure from the bottom of your ring to 1/2" above your floor. For applications that do not use rings, such as styles that have a Rod Pocket header, Tabbed Header or Tie Header, measure from the top of your rod to 1/2" above your floor. 

Sophisticated, Restrained Elegance, Modern Look - measure from the bottom of your ring to the floor and add 1.5 or 2 inches for a soft break. The same rules apply for applications that do not use rings. For styles using a Rod Pocket Header, Tabbed Header or Tie Header, measure from the top of your rod to the floor and add 1.5 or 2 inches for a soft break. 

Luxurious, Dramatic, Formal Look - measure from the bottom of your ring to the floor and add anywhere from 3 - 6 inches for a dramatic puddle. For applications that do not use rings, such as curtain styles with a Rod Pocket Header, Tabbed Header or Tie Header, measure from the top of your curtain rod to the floor and add 3 - 6 inches for a dramatic puddle.

Please note, despite how beautiful dramatic puddling can be, for functional curtain applications, this may not be a very practical choice. Extreme puddling can make opening and closing your curtains a bit cumbersome. But don't be discouraged, if you LOVE this look then go for it! Having something beautiful can be worth the extra effort! 

Dramatic Puddling is well suited for stationary panel applications. 

 

STEP 3 - CAN'T FIND YOUR LENGTH?  

We offer an alteration service for a $15 fee per curtain panel. If you do not see the length you need, order one size up and we will hem to your specified length. Just select the alteration option at checkout and specify your required length. It's that simple. Note, all altered orders are final sale. 

 

Need even a longer length than shown available? Let us know. We may be able to accommodate a longer length option for you through our custom showroom. Fabric options may vary slightly, but all of our same styles are available. Contact us at info@herhousehome.com or by calling us at (269) 389-0424.
