Curtains for 35 Inch Windows

Hi there! I'm James, the owner of We've been selling custom curtains for over 10 years. I know it can be tough to find the right curtains for small windows like 35 inch ones.

But don't worry! In this guide, I'll help you choose the best curtains for your 35 inch window. Whether it's for your living room, bedroom, or kitchen, we'll find the perfect fit for your style and budget.

My Suggestions

Main Section Key Takeaway
Measuring for Curtains Measure the window frame width and length, decide on desired curtain length, and calculate width based on fullness preferences. Account for curtain rod placement for accurate measurements.
Choosing Curtain Size Select curtain panels 1.5 times the window width for a modern look or 2.5-3 times for a fuller, traditional appearance. Adjust measurements based on specific window and curtain style for the perfect fit.
Curtain Styles & Materials Choose patterned or solid-color curtains in natural or synthetic fabrics to match your room's aesthetic. Consider features like thermal lining and machine washability for added convenience and functionality.
Installation Tips Hang curtain rods 3-6 inches longer than the window frame and 4-6 inches above for optimal coverage. Layer sheer and opaque curtains using a double rod for versatile light control and depth.

Types of Curtains for 35 Inch Windows

There are a few types of curtains that work well for 35 inch windows:

Tier Curtains

These are great for small windows in kitchens and bathrooms. They usually come in 2 panel sets and are 36 inches long.

You can find them in styles like rod pocket kitchen curtain tiers.

Cafe Curtains

These are similar to tier curtains but a bit shorter. Cafe curtains often reach the bottom of the window sill.

They're perfect for small windows and can be used as door curtains or kitchen window curtains over the sink.

Blackout Curtains

If you need to block out light, go for blackout curtains or room darkening curtains.

They come in 35 inch wide panels and are great for bedrooms.

Look for thermal insulated room darkening curtains for extra energy savings.

Sheer Curtains

These let in some natural light while still giving you privacy. They might need to be wider than your 35 inch window to look full.

Try rod pocket white lace sheer curtains or sheer curtains for living room windows.

Measuring Your 35 Inch Window for Curtains

To get the perfect fit, measure your 35 inch window carefully:

  1. Measure the width and length of the window frame, not just the glass.

  2. Choose the length you want - sill length, floor length, or in between. For 35 inch windows, I suggest 63 or 84 inch length panels.

  3. For width, pick curtains that are 1.5 to 2 times the width of your 35 inch window.

  4. Don't forget to account for the curtain rod! It's usually hung 4-6 inches above the window frame.

Choosing the Right Drapes Size

To get the look you want, pick the right curtain size for your 35 inch window:

For a modern look with light gathering

Look Curtain Width Panel Width Total Curtain Width
Modern, light-gathering 1.5 times window width 52.5 inches each (for 35 inch window) 105 inches (2 panels)
Fuller, traditional 2 to 3 times window width 70 to 105 inches each (for 35 inch window) 140 to 210 inches (2 panels)

At Dolcewe, all curtains come with a default 1.5 times of fullness. 

For a fuller, traditional look:

  • Choose curtain panels that are 2 to 3 times the width of your window.
  • For a 35 inch window, get panels that are about 70 to 105 inches wide each, like faux linen textured semi-sheer curtain panels or linen textured semi-sheer curtain grommet panels.
  • You'll need 2 panels, each 70 to 105 inches wide, for a total curtain width of 140 to 210 inches.

At Dolcewe, you have the option to select 2 times of fullness.

When measuring for curtain length

  • For floor-length curtains, measure from the top of the curtain rod to the floor and add 1-2 inches.
  • For curtains that puddle on the floor, add an extra 6-12 inches, depending on how much puddle you want.

Remember, these are general guidelines. You may need to adjust based on your specific window and curtain style.

Always double-check your measurements before buying curtains to ensure the best fit for your 35 inch window.

The style, design, and material of your curtains can really change the look of your room:

Styles and Designs

Patterned and textured curtains add visual interest, while solid-color curtains are versatile and timeless.


Natural fabrics like cotton and linen curtains feel classic and airy.

Synthetic fabrics like polyester are durable and easy to care for.

Look for features like thermal lining and machine washability for convenience. 

Headings and Hanging Styles

There are different ways to hang your curtains, like rod pocket, grommets, ring tops, back tabs, and pleats.

Installation and Hanging Tips

Proper installation is key to getting the perfect look for your 35 inch window curtains:

Choose the Right Rod

Pick a curtain rod that's 3-6 inches longer than your window frame on each side.

Make sure the rod style matches your curtain heading (rod pocket, grommet, back tabs, pleats). 

Hang Curtains High and Wide

Hang the curtain rod 4-6 inches above the window frame for the best coverage. This will make your 35 inch window look taller and more impressive, whether it's a window in your living room, bedroom, or any other space.

Layer Curtains

Combine sheer and opaque curtains for depth and light control.

Use a double curtain rod and hang sheer panels closest to the window, with heavier drapes on the outer rod.

This way, you get the benefits of both sheer curtains and room darkening curtains in one window treatment.
