Curtain Help - How many panels do I need?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I have 4 windows in a row.  Each your standard double pane 28" wide window.  Between each window is about an 8 inch piece of molding.  I am looking at curtain panels and I could get 4, one for each window.  I guess let them hang between the windows and on the ends.  Not exactly sure how to set it up.  Or I could get 2 very wide panels.  Each would cover 2 windows and hang on either side of the row of windows.  What do you think?

Curtain panels are typically about 28 inches, so you would need 2 per window as you want them to drape nicely with folds eve n when closed. You may be able to get away with six, but it depends on how you are setting up the rods (1, 2, or 4).

There is already one very long rod over them all with one holder that stops rings right in the middle.  The panels I am looking at are 50 inches wide or 100 inches wide.  The curtains would not be pulled back by anything, but just hang so we can easily pull open and shut.  They are long panels that will hit the floor.

I would go with 1 panel per. It makes getting light in feasible. I have a huge picture window w 1 panel over it and when we pull the curtain back it blocks almost the entire first fourth of the window, and gets in the way. W 1 panel each, you can just scrunch it up between windows w/o much difficulty.

If you're going to do one on each end and in between each pair, you'll need 5 panels, not 4 (unless I've missed something).

 

If ~ represents curtains and [_] represents windows, it'd look a bit like this:

 

~[_]~[_]~[_]~[_]~

 

And that's perfectly fine. In our house curtains are just for looks anyhow; we use blinds for privacy and light filtering.
