Heritage Lace window treatments incorporate either a 1 1/2" sewn rod pocket or decorative rod holes across the top of each curtain. Select the rod that best matches your budget and the look you want to achieve. Some layered treatments may require two rods: one (nearest the window)for a panel and another outside the first, for a valance or swag pair.

Generally, curtains should be about 1.25 to 2.25 times the width of the rod on which they'll be installed. A standard 60" curtains fits a window from 30" to 48" with varying fullness. If your windows are wider, you will need 2 curtains to cover.
