When it comes to choosing the right opening style and stacking for curtains, there are several factors to consider, including the type of window, the size of the room, the decor style, and your personal preferences. Also known as 'stacking', different opening styles work for different size windows.
Before making a decision, it's important to keep in mind that when stacked, the curtain fabric will take up about 30% of your curtain width. Or 15% on each side, if installing centre-opening curtains.
In this style, two curtain panels are drawn to the centre of the window and meet in the middle. Centre-opening curtains are ideal for larger windows and provide a balanced look. We recommend centre-opening for curtains that are wider than 2.3 metres.
In this style, one curtain panel is pulled to the left or right side of the window. Side opening curtains work well for smaller windows and can be used to highlight a specific area of the room.
When customising your curtain, you will have the option to select left or right stack.
This style allows the curtains to hang freely and can provide a casual, relaxed look. Free-flowing curtains work well for sheer fabrics and can add texture and dimension to a room.
Ultimately, the right opening style and stacking for your curtains will depend on your personal preferences and the overall look you want to achieve in your space. Consider the style of your room, the type of fabric you want to use, and the amount of light and privacy you need when selecting your curtain opening style and stacking option.
