How to decide on the curtain fullness


When it comes to the curtain fullness, there are two main aspects you need to take into account, the look and the stack width

The look is the first and foremost factor. We have prepared the following photos to show how curtains fullness can affect the look.

Stack width (from the least to the most)

For the stack width, we have created a calculator. The calculation is meant for estimation only, curtain fabric and hardware will affect the stack width as well. 

If thermal blocking or light blocking is a concern, we recommend adding more fullness to the general rule and create a more rippled finish.

Everything was straightforward. The website navigation was very easy. The choice of a color/type of cloth was made easy by Loft curtains by promptly sending me patches with samples from my shortlist. Then, they have a pretty detailed and helpful explanation of what type pf curtain to buy and how to do the measurements, which is worth following exactly to avoid errors. Finally the shopping experience itself was very easy and it was very helpful to get regular updates tracking my order starus
