Hang'em High

One of the most common questions that people have when hanging drapes and window treatments is, "How high do I hang them?" If you have 'not so tall' ceilings in your home, most designers will tell you to hang them high above the top of the window to create a longer window and a taller ceiling. However, now experts are saying even if you are fortunate enough to have tall ceilings and big windows, you too should hang your treatments higher.

In the picture below, you can see what a difference there is in the two pictures, and how hanging the drapes higher makes for a much prettier frame around the window.

Thanks for the post. It was just what I was looking for when I was trying to decide on drapes length. I'm really glad I went higher!
