Frequently Asked Questions
Q: All your beaded curtains are 35.5 inches wide, what if I have less than 35.5" space?
A: You can hang your beaded curtain inside or outside of a door frame. If you have an opening with less than curtain width you will need to hang the curtain outside of the frame. This also makes an illusion that the opening is wider than what it really is. For some beaded curtains, it is also possible to trim the curtain to your width. Please contact us for specific details.
Q: All your beaded curtains are 35.5 inches wide, what if I have more than 35.5" space?
A: If you have just a little over 35 inches you can ignore the gap and hang your bead curtain either inside or outside of the frame. If you have way more than 35 inch opening you have to hang two curtains side by side or you may need to shorten the width of your bead curtain. For some beaded curtains, it is possible to trim the curtain to your width. Please contact us for specific details.
Q: How to shorten the width of my beaded curtain?
A: All bamboo beaded curtains can be easily shortened by just cutting the hanging bar, in case of wooden bead curtains it is a little more tricky, and it depends on the style of the curtain you choose. Wood beaded curtain with a criss-cross pattern on top can not be adjusted by width. Please contact us for specific details.
Q: How to adjust the height of my beaded curtain?
A: To adjust the height you can hang the beaded curtain upper or lower on your wall/frame. You can also adjust the height by trimming from the end of your curtain, but we recommend this approach if you are really a crafty person and you know what you are doing. Please contact us for specific details.
Q: How much privacy a wood or bamboo beaded curtain can provide?
A: Beaded curtains regardless of their type or the number of the strands cannot provide 100% privacy, especially if the light is coming from both sides of the curtain. To provide some privacy light should be off on that side of the curtain, and you should choose from beaded curtains with higher number of strands.
