Puddling Guide

If you prefer for your drapes to "Puddle", or rest on the floor, here are some general guidelines:

Minimal Puddle or Break:
Small "break" in the fabric above the hem where it meets the floor.
Add 1" – 3" to your length
Moderate Puddle:
More dramatic break with some fabric resting on the floor.
Add 3" to 6" to your length
Substantial Puddle:
Generous amount of fabric pooling on the floor.
Add 6" to 8" to your length

Breaking

For a stylish, tailored look, have a slight break at the bottom. A break is a fold or bend above the hem, which is created when the fabric is longer than required to reach the floor. Here, an inch or two of extra length creates a slight break.

Notice how a slight break can work with contrasting banding to create a custom look. These made-to-measure details are the hallmarks of custom professional design. An extra ½ inch can be just enough for a stylish break.
