Wide width curtains will lend French doors and large windows a little extra panache. With a generous width, these window treatments will create a full, polished look in a variety of colors, patterns and styles.
French doors and broad windows are made even more extravagant with extra wide curtains. These window treatments will enhance the beauty of a large window without appearing sparse. On the contrary, the ample fabric supplied by wide width curtains will bunch into a sumptuous gather on both sides of your window. Simply draw your panels shut for instant relief from a busy road or a bright streetlight. Now imagine your curtains sweeping to either side, unveiling the scenery beyond your window. Curtains with grommet rings or tab tops make for ease of movement on your curtain rod. If your French doors are constantly swinging on their hinges, a grommet or tab top window treatment is a must. Just part your curtains without a second thought and invite in guests or usher out the dog. Curtains for wide windows may also have room darkening or thermal qualities. However breathtaking the view may be, larger windows and French doors are notorious for permitting light, heat and cold air into the home. Reduce the blinding effect of that westward-facing window with room darkening curtains; insulate panes from summer heat and winter freeze with a thermal wide window treatment. Whether you're enhancing a window or a double French door, curtains should contribute in some part to the surrounding space. Balance out an area with bold patterns or pigments using a solid color window treatment. Enliven an understated room with an elaborate print or a splashy color scheme. If your window is particularly wide, furnish it with four curtain panels, then cinch the two in the center with one decorative tieback. This exerts a palatial and polished look on the entire room. Extra wide curtain panels bring a fullness to your windows and French doors that can't be realized with bare panes and stark glass. Tone back that wide-eyed look and turn up the style on your windows with these generous curtains.
