Blackout curtains provide the most privacy and opaqueness and insulation which works well for bedrooms and places where privacy is most needed. 

Curtains alone can change the whole look and vibe of the room no matter how basic pattern you use or how bright color you use. They can make the room look taller, luxurious and even spacier only depending on how well you hang them. But how do we hang them? What should be the height of the rod? What length of curtain? Which fabric?  It should be blackout, lined or unlined. Should it be drapes or curtains?

  1. Hang them high

No matter what height your ceiling is, try hanging the rods as high as you can. If you have a smaller ceiling strat your curtain right from above to create an illusion of a higher ceiling, but if you already have a higher ceiling make sure to hang your rod at least 8-12 inches or midway from your window to ceiling. 

  1. Hang them wide

Try hanging your curtain rods wider from your window approx 6- 8 inches so when you open your curtains you can easily have a pleated look at the edge and sufficient width for light to enter, this will even help you have a wider window feel. 

  1. Hang them in the right length  

When you let your curtain flow make sure they are either just the right size of your window or right above the floor or even touching the floor. For a bohemian look you can even let yourself create a puddle of an inch or two not more than that. 

  1. Hang the right amount of panels

When you close your curtains you want them to look fuller and not justa flat fabric. To get and measure the right measurement of fabric width try multiplying the width with 1.5 to get the right measurement of the window panel 

  1. Hang the right style of panels

Not sure which style of curtains you want to use. When you donít understand what types are available and which one to choose. Sheer, lined or blackout? Let's look what features they possesses 


When you are planning to have a curtain which lets a good amount of light in the room and a light weight offering nominal privacy kind of type, sheer curtains are perfect for you. They can be in subtle pattern and texture and try avoiding shiny synthetic sheer fabric and go for a dryer or natural kind of fabric. 


They offer more privacy compared to sheer curtains, but still let enough light pass through them. They add extra layer insulation to the curtains, with layers the curtains help in noise cancellation and make the room feel cozier. 


Blackout curtains are the perfect choice when you donít want any light to seep into your room and need total privacy. They help in resisting unwanted rays and weather changes, velvet blackout curtains even keep the room warmer on cold days.
