When purchasing curtain cloth, you need to calculate which kind of cloth is suitable to buy according to the size of your own windows, and the utilization rate is high.

Half-cut window: According to the window type, the hem of the curtain exceeds the window sill by about 30 cm and does not touch the ground.
High curtain: suitable for window types with a space above 3 meters.
Fourth, choose and buy small stickers for curtains
If the shape of the window is tall and narrow, you should choose the length just before it The short curtain on the window sill should be able to cover the window frames on both sides in width, so as to expose the large window width as much as possible. For windows with wide and short windows, long curtains and high curtains should be selected to elongate the appearance of the window. If the window is relatively short, you can hang a half curtain of the same color as the curtain above or below the window to cover the window frame and window sill and lengthen the visual effect. In addition, you can’t choose too cumbersome ones on the curtains, because the curtains have to be discounted, and the room is relatively high. The pattern of the curtains can be selected horizontally, which can widen the visual effect.
