Therefore, you are supposed to look up some designs, patterns, and colours.
It is one of the essential things you should consider in having a kitchen curtain.
So look for a more suitable pattern or color of curtains that would suit your style.
Of course, every curtain’s purpose is for privacy. It has been a reason to put up curtains to cover or conceal since ancient times.
Some don’t want to be seen, especially when there is a stalker outside looking at you. Well, that would be awkward and creepy.
But of course, you don’t want to over everything all up now, would you? Some fabrics offer a little bit of sunlight and a view outside.
It lets you see through the curtain but not entirely and clearly unless you open them out.
Length and width
Ah, yes, length matters too. Have you ever seen a window just above a sink getting a more prolonged curtain fall than it should have?
That would look awful and unruly, and that makes length matters.
Make sure to measure the window’s length to make sure your curtain fits the shape.
Now, some of you probably don’t know which lengths and widths are suitable, so here’s a tip.
Size #1. Standard full
Standard full curtains measure twice the window’s width and a right at the top of the window sill.
Size #2. Deluxe full
Deluxe full curtains measure 2.5 times the window’s width and a length that’s just at the window sill.
Size #3. Maximum full
A maximum full curtain measures the window’s width and a length of 1n inch or two below the window sill thrice.
Choose one that suits your window’s location and length since curtains that are longer get wet whenever we wash dishes or use the sink.
