We hung curtains on either end of our porch using shower curtain rods from W*lm*rt. Very affordable and gorgeous! BUT!!! We can't figure out how to anchor the BOTTOM of the curtains when we want them shut to block the sun but the wind is blowing. Typical curtain weights are not enough - any ideas??

Try a pipe through the bottom of the hem.

I just purchased grommet panel curtains for an outdoor terrace. The terrace has 7 openings, (2 small and 5 double-wide) and I intend to put two panels at each column. Problem: The longest curtain I could get were 108," so for a 12' high terrace ceiling my curtains will only be about 2" from the bottom of the terrace border at the top. I want the curtains to end at the bottom of each rail -- not at the terrace floor -- to avoid bugs, rain, mildew, etc. Is there some rule that curtains have to end at the floor?
