Your Home With 95 Inch Curtains
Long, cascading curtains look wonderful hung above tall windows. They drape almost from ceiling to floor, making lovely horizontal lines that draw the eye. These 95 inch curtains have a classic look, which you can capitalize on when you chose traditional colors and materials.
For big living rooms with lots of wood accents, try velvet 95-inch curtains. These room-darkening curtains will help you limit light and energy loss through your windows. Heavy curtains such as velvet only work in big rooms because they can be overpowering. However, velvet evokes an almost regal feel when paired with the right wood furniture accents.
Rooms with light color schemes or a smaller square footage need different curtain material. Sheer material helps let light in, and it adds an ethereal look to your room. However, if you still want room-darkening curtains, get lined curtain panels with a gentle pattern in colors that complement your current design scheme. At JCPenney, shop floral patterns, geometric designs, and swirls in many white, beige, and brown options.
How to Hang 95 Inch Curtains
Interior designers advise hanging long curtains about 6 inches above your windows, extending 3 to 6 inches on either side. This allows the curtains to drape to just above the floor without touching it. You create the illusion that your windows are larger and your ceilings are higher than they are. If you hang long curtains right where the window stops, you will create the opposite effect. Extending the curtains further than 6 inches away from the window looks haphazard.
You'll find one exception to this guideline: when your windows are floor-to-ceiling. Then, you must hang the curtains just above the window lintel because you have nowhere else to put it. The design esthetic will look fine because your windows are very tall.
Consider your curtain rods, too. The rod should extend about an inch past the curtain, just enough to show the design on either end. The right curtain rods will add extra elegance to your curtains, so don't get the simplest rods just to finish this job quickly. Consider how different colors and metallic sheens will match or clash with your decor and with the curtains. White curtains hanging off a white rod, for instance, will appear too monochromatic. Try white curtains with a gentle pattern hanging from a silver rod instead.
