5 Expert Tips for Well-Designed Drapery

1. Create the Illusion of Height

“Try to hang curtain rods as close to the ceiling as possible. This draws the eye up and helps emphasize verticality. If the top of the window is a few feet from the ceiling, fabricate a roman shade the same width as the window, including any frame, and outside mount the shade a few inches under the curtain rod. This will give the illusion that the window is taller and allows the maximum amount of natural light into the space.”
