2 Panels (Pair)

Ordered when a mirrored pair of panels is required for installation. This option is normally used when selecting left and right drapery panels for a window.

Measure the Area You Wish to Cover

Rod Face - Measure the width of your drapery rod, not including finials
Coverage Area - Measure the width of the area you want to cover. If ordering pleated drapery, consider adding 4" - 6" on either side of your opening to maximize natural light and provide the best finished look.

Note: We have made allowances for fullness as needed to ensure a beautiful finished look.

If ordering drapery that does not need to close (stationary), consider ordering a drapery with less coverage.

How to Measure Length for French Pleat Drapes

Typically, pleated drapes are used with drapery rings or a traverse rod. This style comes standard with drapery hooks set in the back of the panel for installation purposes. To get an accurate measurement, you'll need to know which hardware you will use before measuring for your drapery length. Refer to the drapery measuring diagram on this page.

Decorative Traverse Rod: Measure from the bottom of the rings to the floor. Pleats will hook into the rings and the decorative drapery rod will be seen. (as shown in photo)

Standard Traverse Rod: Measure from the top of the drapery rod, to the floor. Pleats will hook into carriers that are not seen, and the pleats will cover the drapery rod.

Drapery Return
The return is the measurement from the front of your drapery rod to the wall. Measure the depth of your hardware brackets to determine your required drapery return.
Note: A 3.5" return is most common.

French Pleat Blackout Curtains provide custom elegance and sophistication! Pinch pleat curtains are hand pleated, pre-pinned and ready for installation. They can easily be dressed up or down depending on how you choose to hang them. You may select an ornate rod and hang the curtains with rings to accommodate drapery pin hooks or clip rings. You can also hang them with pin hooks on traverse rods. The pinch pleated style adds traditional look to a living room, dining room, family room or den.

Fabric Samples:

Because of variations from one computer screen to another, it's difficult to precisely match fabric color on our website. We suggest that you purchase fabric samples if color matching is important to your individual buying decision. To order fabric samples, click the "Sample" button on the top menu while viewing the fabric of your choice in our Fabric Selection Tool. From there you will be able to cart your sample. You may also purchase fabrics by the yard by clicking the "Order" button on the top menu.

Customer's Own Material:

Drapes Curtains N More can create custom products using fabric you already own! Simply choose Customer Fabric (COMFAB) as your fabric selection. (COMFAB is usually listed first in our Fabric Gallery.) There is a one-time (per order), non-refundable $25.00 charge for the handling of your material. Please read our COM Procedures for more information.

Curtain Lengths:

Graze Length: The curtain panel hangs just at the floor.

Trouser Length: Add 1"-3" to your Curtain Length so that the panel spills slightly onto the floor. Trouser is not recommended for functional curtain panels.

Puddle Length: Add 4"-12" to your Curtain Length so that the panel "puddles" on the floor. Puddling is not recommended for functional curtain panels.

Curtain Weights:

Vinyl-covered, lead-free curtain weights are used in the bottom of our curtain hems to provide control of curtain panel corners after installation. Curtain panels have a better hanging quality when weighted at the bottom corners.
