Your Source for Extra Long Curtains

At The Curtain Exchange of New Orleans, we specialize in long curtains, which are well suited for historic homes. Hanging curtains so that they reach ceiling to floor creates an elegant look that can emphasize high ceilings, or create the illusion of height in homes with lower ceilings.

Long curtains can also be puddled to create an opulent atmosphere for even more style. Curtains can be puddled using as little as one inch of extra fabric, called a break, or up to 18 inches for an extra voluminous look. For a more sophisticated puddle, a length of four or five inches is appropriate.

 Our ready-to-buy curtains are 120 inches long. While these should fit windows in most homes, we also have 700 fabrics to choose from to create custom draperies, should you need (or prefer) a longer length or need curtains for wider and/or shorter windows. Come in today to see our lines of silk, linen, cotton, blend, and synthetic fabrics available for custom draperies as well as our selection of designer curtains.
