How To Hang Drapery

Choosing curtains can be a stressful proposition. It’s not quite as fun as picking out other design details, and there are plenty of details to consider when deciding how exactly to hang the curtains. But our designers keep it simple and advise you to “hang your curtains high and wide”. They advocate going as high as possible. They don’t necessarily have to go all the way to the ceiling, they have to be at least halfway (or even a little higher if you dare). This not only makes your windows feel bigger, it also makes the entire room appear bigger.

But at all costs you want to avoid the curtain that is too short. Even if everything else looks spectacular, too short a curtain will spoil the mood in the entire room. You want to be sure that your curtains are long enough to at least kiss the floor. However, if you want to go further, order extra long curtains to create a romantic puddle on the floor. Do you need some pictures? Below are some great examples of how to hang your curtains.
