Curtains are an indispensable item in every family, but how to hang curtains is a problem that many people ignore. Today we will talk about some common mistakes when hanging curtains.
1. Curtain rods are too low
You probably already know this, but the width and height of the curtain rod you hang can affect the final look. Raising the curtain rod will naturally attract the eye. It will make your curtains taller and you will give you the illusion of high ceilings. Therefore, a general rule about the height of the suspension rod is about half to two-thirds the height between the top of the window frame and the ceiling. If you have a crown molding, you can hang it three-quarters of an inch below the crown molding. If you still want more impact, keep in mind that there is a lot of space between the top of the window frame and the bottom of the crown molding or ceiling. It might seem a little odd to hang the rod so close to the mold. So judge for yourself and see what works best.
2. Curtain rods are too narrow
When your curtains are open, they will gather in front of the wall on one side of your window, and then the edge of your curtain will overlap the edge of the window. This will visually make it appear as if you have larger windows than you. If your pole is too narrow and your curtain hangs in front of your window, it will block sunlight and the window will actually look much smaller. Ideally, you want to make sure your poles are about 4 to 6 inches wider than the outer frame of the window to make sure you don't choke on the poles that are too narrow.
3. Curtains are not wide enough
This means that when your curtains are open or closed, they don't look luxurious, so you can fix them. You can buy curtain panels that are one and a half to twice the width of the window.
For example, if you have 4-foot windows, you'll get a 6- to the 8-foot-wide panel. This will ensure that when your curtains are opened or closed, they will provide a nice gathered look. They will look great and great.
4. Curtains are too short
Interior designers have been known to return curtain panel lengths, and they're known as kisses, puddles, and floats. If you want to know how long curtains you should buy, you should first determine the function of your room. Typically, this is a formal room and you can opt for longer curtains, if it's an informal room you tend to want to shorten it a bit.
