Accordingly, how wide should curtains be for 120 inch window?
I would normally recommend at least a width and a half - i.e. each curtain is 180 inches wide. Double width (240″) makes them really full. You need to think about how much space you have each side as when the curtains are open they take up space at the side.
Similarly, how wide should curtains be for 100 inch window? For example, if the window is 100 inches wide, the curtains should be made to 125 inches wide in order for them to hang off the window when in the open position. For an inside-mount curtain, measure from one edge inside the frame to the inside edge on the opposite side.
Besides, how do you measure for kitchen curtains?
Measure the width of the rod from left to right. A common rule for displaying curtains properly says the curtains finished width should be at least 2 times the width of your window (if not more - sheers can be 3 times the window width) to achieve a look of proper fullness.
Do eyelet curtains need to be double width?
You need to allow for both flat panels to be a minimum of one and a half times the curtain pole width. I personally think they look much better at double the pole width. Give or take a couple of inches. This allows the curtains to have enough fabric to allow the pleats to look right when hanging over your window.
