What is the ideal curtain length?

Curtain length depends entirely on the look you would like to achieve.

1. Just above the floor:

If you would like your curtains to hang without touching the floor (by approximately 5cm), this is the best option for you. This style is considered to be the most practical, no-fuss and casual look. Dust won’t gather, and the hem will stay clean.

2. Break on the floor:

This is the most custom and intentional of the looks but it can be tricky to master. It requires extremely accurate measuring and inconsistencies in the floor or ceiling levels will be clearly visible.

It is also worth keeping in mind that as natural fibres contract and expand slightly with the changing seasons, you may notice slight movement in the length of the curtains throughout the course of the year.

3. Puddle on the floor:

This is the most romantic and luxurious of our curtain finishes. An approximately 7cm pool of fabric is created at the base of the curtain.  This is our very favourite look and works especially well when created in our high quality Belgian Flax linens.
