"Pleat it like an accordion at the top and let it drape," advises Lana Lawrence, vice president of Anthony Lawrence‐Belfair. She also suggests working with a larger sample of about 2 yards or more to get a good idea of how the material will drape or pleat, especially for costlier custom window treatment projects. Designers advise that linen, silk, faux silk and velvet are optimum choices because they have the best qualities for hanging and draping.
The choices of lining and interlining, which is a piece of fabric that goes between the main textile and the lining, can enhance insulation and room darkening properties. Lining also plays an important role on giving many types of curtains and drapes their body and fullness when they hang on the window. How long should curtains be? Before heading to the store, decide how far above the window you want to mount the curtains and whether you want them to pool on the floor or hang above it. Six inches above the window frame is a typical place to mount the curtains, it is possible to make a room look taller or more dramatic by installing them farther above the window frame.
