I'm in central FL where the sun is very strong east window that faces street 75" wide x 50" long window. The shortest curtain/ drapes I'm finding are 63" which I can center on the wall have as much above window as below. I HATE the rod pocket & the back pocket don't think much of the tabs either which leaves the grommets. DH likes the old fashioned pleated on the traverse rods YUCK! Then there are the rods which are outrageously priced along with the curtains an drapes. I don't have to have room darkening but I need something that will hold up in the FL sun for a few yrs which to DH is is the rest of his life time say 20 yrs. LOL Hey at one time they actually made draperies that would hold up that long an ppl used them that long an longer I was 1 of them. Left a pair in IN that I bought in 1985 they was going strong when I left 2 yrs ago they was on a west window. Totally wrong size color & everything for what I need now. Any ideas? DH just does not do well with any kind of blinds or shades he's not that mechanically inclined or somethin.
