How to Make Your Curtains Fit
Measure twice, cut once
Measure your curtain drop at least twice. Make sure the length reaches the necessary level before fixing your rail and hanging the curtains.
Curtains and walls should match
Curtain colors should complement your walls. First, match the tone. Second, aim to use a different shade than the main wall color.
Customize your curtains with ease
Secure your curtains to a board. Use a roller and a stencil to apply a 2:1 mix of paint and fabric medium to create an impressive custom look.
Ditch stitches with no-sew curtains
For a custom look, use Heat N Bond adhesive hemming tape to combine fabric scarves. Iron flat and use as many scarves as needed for your drop.
Swap blinds for curtains
Replace blinds with curtains using drapery hooks. Removing the blinds, glue hooks to the top of your curtains and hang from the existing clips.
