What Pattern do I need
If a net curtain is densely patterned, for example leaf below, then less gather may be required as too much gather will obscure the pattern. On the other hand if a curtain is reasonably plain, like the 355 below, then more gather may be required to protect your privacy in the home.
It is also worth remembering when choosing a net curtain for a long window or door that some nets only have a pattern at the bottom and may not be suited to longer drops: for example like the April net below. Nets with all over patterns such as the leaf may be a better option in such a case.
