POSITIVE THINGS FOR CURTAINTo make windows biggermore light into your room and ceilings look higher and pretty

 

  1.Don’t hang your curtain rod too low or too high.

 

 

The height and the width that you hang your curtain rod is going to make all the difference in the final look and the outcome of your drapes raising. Your curtain rod will draw the eye up naturally. It will make your windows look taller. It will even give the illusion that you have higher ceilings.

 

 

So, the general rule in terms of what height to hang your rod is about halfway to two-thirds up between the top of your window frame and your ceiling. If you have crown moldings you can hang it about three quarters of an inch below your crown molding if you want to go for even more impact.

Keep in mind that if you have a lot of space between the top of your window frame and your crown molding. It might look a bit weird to hang your rod so close to the molding. So use your own discretion and see what works best.

 

2.Don’t have the rod too narrow

 

Ideally you want to make sure that your rod is about 4-6 inches wider than the outer frame of your window. Make sure you’re not suffocating your windows by having a rod that’s too narrow.

    Ideally when your curtains are open, they’re going to be gathered in front of the wall            that is on either side of your window. Adjust the edges of the drapes  are going to            overlap  the edges of your window. This will visually make it appear as if you have larger  windows than you do. If your rod is too narrow and your drapes high in front of your window,it’s going to    block the light and the window is actually going to look much smaller.

 

 

 

3.Mistakes related to the curtain panels----buying curtain panels that are not wide enough for your windows.

 

 

When your window is open or closed, they just don’t look luxurious. The way you can fix this is by purchasing panels that are one and a half times to two times the width of your windows.

 

 

For exampleif you have a 4 foot window you will get a panel that is 6-8 feet wide. This will ensure that when your curtain panels are open or closedthey always have a very nice gathered look.

 

4.Purchasing curtain panels too short

 

 

There are typically four curtain lengths that interior designers revert to. They are called the following the kiss the puddlethe brake puddle and the float.

To have your curtains kiss the floor is probably the hardest method to pull off but it also looks the most tailored and custom. You need to be incredibly accurate in your measurements in order to get this right. If your curtain kiss the floor they are literally hovering perfectly on the surface of the floor.

To accomplish this, you need to measure the exact distance from the top of the curtains.to the floor.

 A tip to do this accurately is to hang the curtains on the rod and mark or pin them while they’re already hanging. The puddle length is by far the most dramatic of all the ways to hang curtains. And it’s the one that’s the most tedious to keep clean.

 

 

To achieve the puddling effect, add an extra 2-4 inches beyond the floor to your panels. The brake pedal length is kind of in between kissing the floor length and the puddle length. The panel doesn’t hang straight like it does with the kissing the floor or the floating method and the break adds a little bit of interest. The idea is that you add an extra half inch to one ich to the curtain length. So that the panel breaks as it hints the floor.

 

 

If you don’t like the idea of your curtains touching the ground at all then hang them just half an inch above the floor. This is called the floating method. This gives an extremely clean look although it is slightly less formal.

Curtains should hang perfectly straight with this method. Try not to go any higher than half and inch off the ground though, or it will start to look like a mistake in your measurements. They are not super easy to pull offyou got to be precise with your measurements. It makes your room so much polished if you can hang your curtains in one of these 4 ways I highly recommended.

If you’re confused about what length you actually need in the room that you’re decorating, we’d suggest looking at the function of your room. Typically, if it is a formal room, you can go a bit longer with your curtains and if it’s an informal room you tend to want to go a bit longer with your curtains and if it’s an informal room, you tend to want to go a bit shorter. Formal room obviously tend to have a little less traffic so you can go maybe for the puddle option whereas bedrooms are a bit more informal so you probably want to avoid long curtains unless you are going for a super romantic look. And then you’ll probably want to go for the puddle option as well. Living rooms tend to be a combination of formal and informal so you could probably go for the float or for the kiss in the living room.

 

  5.Excessive pudding

 

 

Short curtains are bad but excessive pudding almost as bad. So, we just talked about curtain lengths and puddling is something that people tend to do but if you overdo it then it might not work so well. If you find excessive dust bunnies in your curtain pile, if people are tripping over your curtains, chances are your curtains are probably a little too long. And your pudding situation has gone a bit overboard. You want to make sure that you stick to the guidelines that we mentioned above and not overdo it because otherwise it might look more of a mistake rather than an intentional pudding situation.
