Hanging your curtains to perfectly match your window, room and style is ultimately a matter of personal taste. However, there are 5 common mistakes, which we would like for you to avoid. 1/Hanging your curtain rod too low Hanging curtains too low from the ceiling causes the room to compress as it visually shortens the height of the window and the room as a whole. Hanging your rod or track close to the ceiling makes the space feel taller, open and airy. 2/Choosing a narrow rod Don’t suffocate your windows by having a rod that is too narrow. Ensure your curtain rod or track extends beyond the sides of the window frame. The curtains should be mostly covering the wall when drawn to the side, instead of covering your window, blocking out light and making the window (and room) seem smaller. A wider rod will also protect your curtains when not in use from the harsh rays of the sun. 3/Choosing too short a length Cutting the drapes short to match the height of the window gives an unfinished feel. Instead you should choose to have the curtain: Floating/hovering very close to, or kissing, the floor. Breaking with a slight fold just above the hem or puddling, where the fabric pools on the floor. To make the right choice, consider if there will be a lot of traffic in the room (kids, pets), is the interior style formal or informal, what kind of floors do you have? 4/Buying too little fabric No matter if you go for heavy and luxurious fabric or something light and airy, curtains pulled taut look dreadful. Make sure to buy enough extra fabric to gather on each end of the window, approximately twice the width of the window. This will create beautiful ruffles or waves and give your curtains fullness when drawn. 5/Choosing the wrong curtain rod or track Make sure to consider the functionality of your curtains to choose the perfect rod or curtain track to complement them. Will they be drawn often, used to block out light, are they heavy? Which way do you want them finished at the top (pleats, eyelets, waves)? Purchasing quality curtain hardware can save you money in the long run and choosing the right rod or track can make a huge difference in the look of your window, and room.
