How to Choose & Hang your Curtains

Curtains offer stylish and practical benefits to your home. They put the finishing touch on a room, express your style and provide privacy and comfort

What are the different types of curtains for your home? Here are the seven most popular curtain styles:

  • Pinch pleat (or tailored pleat) curtains
  • Box pleat curtains
  • Goblet pleat curtains
  • Pencil pleat curtains
  • Eyelet (grommet) curtains
  • Rod-pocket curtains
  • Tab-top curtains

Curtains vary in length, fabric and color. It’s also important to compare curtain styles and curtain pleat styles when shopping for your window treatments.

The structure of the pleats affects how the curtains hang on a rod, or how they fall or drape across your windows. Different curtain styles also serve unique functions. Some curtains help with blocking out sunlight while others are just for decoration. You’ll want to assess your household and décor needs beforehand to make sure you’re buying the right curtains.
