When it comes to styling the drapery for your home, there are many different ways to make them work for your home.  The only hard fast rule is to style your drapery in a way that maximizes the size and height of your room to ensure you make your room look as large as possible.

Rules for Curtain Dimensions

Length of Curtains

When you hang you curtain rods, you want to make sure they are hung near the ceiling to make your room appear taller. Another way to make your room appear taller, and thus larger, is to hang the curtains so they reach the floor or fall within at least a couple inches of it.

Width of Curtains

The width of curtains will vary depending on the size of your room. For large spaces you may need to double hang curtains, and place them so they fall slightly beyond the edge of your window in order to make your windows appear proportionate to your space.

With a Valance

A valance can bring a traditional and formal feel to your drapery. Valances can be made of several different fabrics, in different patterns and colors, and can be upholstered to a hard backing or left free and flowing. You can match your valance to the curtains of your choice, or you can use a different complementing color.  The sky is the limit with valances.

Colors and Textures

At Zinga’s we offer an almost unlimited number of colors and patterns, so you can customize your drapery to match any room, and any decorating style.  White rooms can benefit from a pop of color, or make your room appear larger with a white on white monochrome look.  You can choose to make your drapery stand out, or you can make it blend in to highlight the other decorations in your room

Whatever your style, with hundreds of colors and patterns to choose from, as well as several valance and cornice options, we can help you create the perfect look for your space.
