Start by measuring the window. To
make a room feel taller, hang rods
4-6 inches above window frames.
Extending the rod 3-6 inches
beyond both sides of the frame
makes a window feel grand and
allows more light to shine through
when drapes are open.

The length of your drapes can
have great impact on the look of
a window too. For a clean,
casual look, hang drapes so that
they fall just a 1/2 inch above the
floor – especially if you open and
close your drapes frequently.
For a luxurious puddle effect,
add 6-8 inches to the rod-to-floor
measurement of the drape.


Decorative rods, finials,
holdbacks and ties are like the
jewelry of a room, defining a
window with added texture and
detail. Choose from our wide
range of styles like grommets
and clip rings, and finishes like
antique bronze or pewter, to
complement your drapes and
create a look you love.
