Fullness as well as Stacking ― It's important to remember that the literal width of a set of curtain panels should not simply equal the width of the curtain rod. This is for two important reasons: fullness as well as stacking. Fullness refers to the fabric width needed to give the curtains a pleasant, natural wave (rather than trying to have them stretch tautly as well as awkwardly across a wall when closed). Metal curtain rods offer a nice contrast in a room with a lot of wood furniture. The rod would of course come all the way across the window so that you can close the curtain.
Make curtain lining your friend ― Choose a good quality blackout fabric as the curtain lining. This not only creates a good, dark room for sleeping, it also protects the curtain fabric from degradation as well as ultimately disintegration. Thermal―backed fabric is a great curtain option as it also minimises sun damage. Favour short as well as sweet ― Long curtains can drown small cottage windows. These cute little openings are best framed by short little skirts that reach just over the sill as well as, as here, are held back by subtle tiebacks to maximise the natural light coming into the room.

So let's say you opt for privacy. What's next? Stack (also called stack back) is the amount of space required at the side of a window for the curtains to be fully open, hanging completely off the window. Stack is critical, because the more your fabric drapery covers the window, the less light will able to enter. Lining up the second tone with the window sill is easy on the eye, as well as note how much higher than the top of the window the curtain rail has been mounted ― a long drop not only looks beautiful, but the curtains also serve to keep out any drafts. Curtains should be long enough that they hit the floor exactly.
Stack your window treatments right back ― The leading edges of curtains ― the ones facing the windows ― are particularly vulnerable to degradation from the sun. To avoid this, make the curtain rod long enough to allow the curtains to open completely as well as clear the window as well as frame. TIP: Rotate your curtains every year by swapping the left―hand curtain with the right―hand one to further minimise fading to the leading edges.
