Meauring For STACKBACK

Hi Girlfriends,

We received an email from one of our website buyer's wanting information on STACKBACK  for her rod.  

Denise:  "The width of the rod (D) is figured so that when the drapery is open, most of the drapery clears the window, admitting sufficient sunlight and taking advantage of the complete view."  

Gwen: "In Illustration D, it shows rod past window one each side.  For each width of drapery pulled to each side, the rod should be extended out from the window approximately 5" to 6".

Denise:  "Or......a rule of thumb is to add 1/3 of the window width to the window width to determine rod length.  The rod would then extend 1/6 of the width of the window on each side."

Gwen:  "To economize, or when the furniture is placed on limited wall space near the window, the drapery does not have to clear the window and can be figured closer."

Denise: " So true......and remember g.f.s, the measuring process should come up with two important facts:  1. The rod width and 2. The finish length "

Good luck-!!

Talk again,
Denise & Gwen
