Drapes on Panoramic windows

The factory drapes on my 25' FB dont open all the way. The upper and lower channels that hold the tabs in place look too short, so the drapes always cover the last 6" of the corner of the windows. Does someone know of any extenders you can add to the channels to allow the drapes to fully open? Does this post even make sense?

If you open and fold the pano curtains all the way to the outside ends of the tracks, they will cover the ends of the windows. Try gathering and folding the inner two curtain panels at the sides of the center segment of the window ...then the outer panels at the two outer ends....that will reduce the sense of "window loss" you experience.

Thanks TBRich. I tried your advice last night and it sure does help a bit.

Still wondering if anyone has ever extended the tracks to get the drapes to pull completely away and let the entire view in.

Send a picture of the track. If it's the same in your 2006 as in my 1974 argosy, I have left over from my remodel.

Tie them!

Think of tying your daughter's pony tail. Now go get some pretty ribbon, etc., and tie each of the drapes around the center - or do 2 or 3 per drape - or a spiral tieback. Alternate tiebacks:
  1. Tiny bungies
  2. napkin rings
  3. Key rings
  4. string beads on copper wire - knot ends, mush into circles
  5. leftover ties from garbage bags or bread bags
  6. beer can tabs made into chains - wait those style tabs are antiques by now

(I'm sure you CAN extend the rails, but tying the drapes up will be simpler.)

Tiger: thanks for the offer. I'll do that this weekend.

Foiled Again: I only had boys, but i suppose thier hair is long enough to tie back just the same . Seriously, good reccomendations, but i dont think there is enough slack in the drapes to pull back all the way. I'm being way too picky here.
