Not today! Follow the simple rules below to find the ideal placement for your drapery and your room, every time. All you need is a measuring tape and possibly a footstool or small ladder to measure from the top of your window moulding to your ceiling or the bottom of your crown moulding.
If you measured:
- 12 inches or greater – hang at the mid-point
- 12 inches or less – hang just below the ceiling or crown moulding
- Low ceilings – hang just below the ceiling or crown moulding. As with a small space between the window and ceiling, hanging at the ceiling level in will give the impression of higher ceilings and more space.
Beautiful window mouldings – hang at, or just below the bottom of the moulding at the top of your window. If you’ve spent a fortune on your window mouldings, it’s unlikely you’ll want to cover them up – show them off instead!
