What are Residential Privacy Curtains?
Residential privacy curtains are commonly used as room dividers, window drapes, bedroom privacy curtains, bed canopies, patio/deck curtains, etc. At Curtain-Tracks, our commercial grade fabrics are suitable for residential applications and are sure to match any décor. Our standard curtains come with ¼” grommets. Curtains purchased directly from our website will be grommeted.
Residential Privacy Curtain Fabrics
We offer an array of fabrics that can match any décor. All fabrics are fire retardant and machine washable. If you require a specific fabric, please contact us so that we may verify the fabric availability and lead time. All fabrics are “true-light” tested to ensure that the opacity of the fabric provides absolute privacy. The selection of fabrics shown typically ensures shorter lead times of one to three weeks from order placement to shipment. Some features to consider when choosing privacy curtain fabrics include:
- Sheer or semi-sheer
- Blackout/room darkening
- Blackout lining
- Sound absorbing
- Fabric that looks like linen

Residential Curtain Measurements
Curtains are available in any height. Measure from floor to curtain track. Account for approximately 3 inches of hardware. You can also measure from curtain track to below windowsill if you do not want floor length panels.
Curtain widths are offered in 18-inch increments for our standard curtains. Measure the width of your track and add approximately 20% for standard curtains. Ripplefold drapes can include up to 100% fullness.
Cut Width vs Finished Width
Curtains and shower curtains will not finish at the exact width ordered. Curtain-Tracks.com adheres to industry standards basing all curtains on CUT WIDTH. Approximate loss can vary up to 3.5” per panel. This is due to varying fabric widths, side hems, and panel seams. The following chart is based on 72” fabric width.
