Curtains are an intricate aspect of any room. They can be used for many purposes, including breaking up space visually providing you with privacy and warmth. Curtains for 10 feet ceilings are typically longer than curtains for other heights.
To find out more, let’s check the details below!
10 feet ceiling curtain length
The length of the curtain panels depends on the height of the ceiling. If you have a 10 feet ceiling, you’ll need to get curtains that are at least 12 feet long or longer. Curtains should always be at least 6 inches off the ground to avoid looking sparse and unfinished.
Curtains usually break on the ground because they shrink a little when dry-cleaned or washed. Lined & Interlined Draperies are designed to last 20 years or more, which means this is a common issue.
Curtain style is rather personal on what you like, but I’m more of a purist when it comes to curtains. My preference is for curtains that are feminine, sleek, and elegant. That would work if I hung the rod above the window and let the curtains slip onto or into it by about four inches.
The standard length is 10′. However, that can be custom-made to any size if needed. The track and ball hangers add 1″ to the total length, making it 10’1″.
The 95″ carpet finish ending a couple of inches off the floor not only looks strange but looks like an accident! You want your curtains to hang within 1/4″ to 1/2″ of the foot and no more than 6-8″ above the floor. This way, there is enough fabric dragging on the floor to give a cozy puddle of cloth resting on the ground.
We sell crown molding. If you want to buy some before hanging your draperies, around 3 inches should be enough space between the rod and the molding. Most sewists will hem your curtains without sewing them (provided they’re not too long), but it’s better to take them to a professional if you can sew.
Whenever deciding on curtains, use your best judgment. There’s no correct answer.
9 feet ceiling curtain length
Our bedroom has a lovely 9ft high and 6ft wide arched window. It has shears and drapery if we need to cover it up in winter. These drapes are too big for the window, and you will need middle support to hang them.
I was too lazy to hem my curtains even though it would have been a big job. My new moral is I don’t have a drape or curtain in the house that I can’t tie back. I had to sop up the water to avoid ruining the rug.
The pendant length of the curtains is 9’7,” and it includes the tracks and hangers. It would give you around 3″ of fabric to spare. This amount should be sufficient. If not, you can select a weighted bottom hem to fill up any remaining space.
It’s a heavy black canvas duck. It’s 3 to 4 inches at the bottom, and the entire floor is turf, so it stays in space.
My solution has the entire project schedule and drawings for all ceiling elements. But you might need to spend a considerable amount of time doing this task.
Formal and informal curtain setting
My curtains end either on the sill or just below it for informal settings. For formal settings, my curtains end either at the floor or no more than an inch above the floor. To achieve a soft but formal look, I use lighter fabrics while maintaining the outfit’s overall formality.
I think drapes should “puddle” on the floor if they’re not long enough to touch it. It looks better than them dangling in that no man’s land of space – preferably right below or at the windowsill.
I feel like somebody goofed – this is what I made for our formal living room and dining room.
If these are drapery panels, they should be about 1/2″ off the floor. And if you mount them higher up, it will pull them up to your ceiling, making your roof seem taller.
Many homeowners like to hang the rods as close to the ceiling as possible to give the illusion of higher ceilings. Pottery Barn has some excellent examples of drapes hung above or on top of molding for a more dramatic effect.
I have an HT space in the loft. There is an opening down to the foyer on the right side, which brings in a lot of light during the day. I have installed a ceiling track to put on some blackout curtains to counter this.
Then I was wondering what curtains to buy which won’t break the bank. I would need 10 meters of length, and the height can be around 3 meters. And in inches, it will be 393 inches.
Ikea sells blackout curtains, but it appears to be only in 98″. The one I have, along with a pinch pleat curtain, should block max light. You can hang the blackout curtains to those small rings on your ceiling track.
If you are looking for 100% blackout curtains, go for custom-made to measure curtains. They will take the measurements and bring the catalogs to choose your curtains home. I think 2″ to 3″ below the ceiling or crown molding is perfect!
Interior designers share their favorite blackout curtains for budget-friendly window dressings. Be sure to measure 12 to 24 inches beyond both sides of the window so you can use two panels that are the height of the window – this way. It’ll look just as good as curtains that would cost you more money.
You can achieve a more formal look by adding an extra 1.5 inches to the length of the drape. The most dramatic effect is when they “puddle” on the floor.
A sheer curtain is an excellent choice if you want a little bit of everything from your window treatments. It allows natural light into a space and helps brighten up dark rooms.
Curtain panels family width and height
Curtain wall panels are versatile in window treatments. You can manually create the size of your board by inputting the height and width parameters. Check the box under type for ‘Reporting’ to automatically have the height and width inputted.
You can create any dimension that you need. To extract that information, use the shared parameter. If you want that parameter to be editable, use the shared parameter.
The reference points for height and width are the reference lines. You’re just attaching to those. There’s no actual number you can work with for this project.
The panel type name is the only way to identify these parameters. In addition to the increased ceiling height, the builder also increased windows by 1 foot.
It’s not simpler to divide the ceiling area (in a schedule of ceilings) and divide it by the site.
In the family of curtain panels, I’ll add a nested element that must be scheduled. This approach will always produce errors in those non-rectangular, left-over pieces of the ceilings. Revit (or any other software) cannot easily change your rectangular family to be triangular or trapezoidal.
