In my opinion windows can be a tricky and difficult thing to shop for. They are pretty pricey and after countless views and estimates the best deal was through pottery barn. I could have chosen less expensive drapes through a less expensive alternative, but then I could not have fun puddling away. This was the highlight of my bedroom.
How to figure out how much puddle is right for your drapes.
Puddling is the amount of extra drapery fabric that is puddled on the floor. It can add style and elegance to you drapes.
Puddles can range from 1 to 10 inches and can create an amazing look to your draperies. Here are some measurement ideas.
1 Inch puddle: Provides a very clean look, the drapes just sits on the floor.
2-4 Inch Puddle: The most standard used today. It’s a very elegant and it pools nicely on the floor.
6-8 Inch Puddle: Is the most extreme puddle and it’s what I used on my drapes, the extra length creates a more dramatic look.
