Long Curtains – Sometimes we think that place a curtain in a rectangular vertical wall window is very simple, and yet many times it is done bad and a lot of light is lost. Especially when the windows are small. The question is to guess where to place the bar of which we are going to hang it and also of what size to choose that bar. The usual thing is that the bar should be placing just above the window. When in reality if there is space between the bar and the ceiling. It should be placing at half the height of that space.
On the other hand, the bar should be wider than the window. Again especially if the window is narrow because that way when we pull the long curtains sideways. The window will be almost completely exposing and let more light pass. The idea is that the curtain should not always cover the window, but only when we have close it. But if we open it will be to let the light pass free and if the bar is completely placing on the window that will not be possible. Also if the long curtains are larger than the window will also make it appear larger. In short, we should not adjust the curtain to the size of the window but place a larger. With the highest and prolonged bar sideways.
