Angled high ceiling curtain solutions


We have received many questions on the curtain design for angled window/ceiling. For regular sized windows, the curtain design can be creative. However, the angled ceiling is tricky to work with due to the uneven curtain height and gravity. 

We have recently completed a project in Marina Del Rey, California with an angled high ceiling and helped our client minimize morning sunlight and light glare.

Here is how we designed angled curtains that fit the two parallel angled floor to ceiling windows. 

  • For the curtain mobility

Considering the ceiling height is more than 11', hand-drawn curtains are not practical. We came up with two solutions, an electrically motorized track orstationery curtains. Since an electrician will need to be involved for the motorized track and it will be a larger project than our client had planned, we decided on a pair of stationary panels. The stationary panels create flowy curves when being held back for this loft space. 
  • For the curtains heading style

Grommet or rod pocket styles are out of the picture because they couldn't stay in place when curtains are closed. Ripple fold style can work but we figured the French pleat style matches the wood-paneled ceiling much better. The end carriers on both ends help secure the curtain tops in place. The French pleat headers also hide the curtain track effortlessly.

  • For the curtain height and holdbacks

We agree on the puddling look for a relaxed lofty feel. The holdbacks are installed slightly higher than our standing height to let more lights in when curtains are open.

    These are beautiful treatments for this situation. Curious how you mounted the draperies at the ceiling – are they on a rod with rings? How did you get the header so crisp with the sheer material?

We are extremely happy with our new drapes. The high quality drapes are beautifully crafted, and look beautiful in our living room. We ordered the Flow in white with privacy lining, and 80% ripple fold. It gives us privacy while keeping the room light and open. My husband installed the (ceiling mount) track and drapes, and thought the directions were easy to follow. However he recommends hiring a handyman if you usually do not complete work for your home. Furthermore, Loft Curtains' customer service (Justin) was professional, helpful and prompt. I will definitely purchase from them again.

Very good, can’t say enough good things about their responsiveness and how they have thought through every detail to make it a good experience. Including a video in how to open properly the package the hardware came in. We got Ripplefold. Great price for the high quality. They were super quick to send the samples.
