One of my staples in home design has always been curtains. They can add color, pattern, and texture to transform a space. But they can also majorly bring a room down. Literally. As in bring down the ceiling height. I swear, it’s true. Have no fear though, today I am going to show you the best way to hang curtains to maximize your room and make the ceilings feel taller!

If you follow me on Facebook, you probably know we are knee deep in a living/dining room makeover. As part of that makeover, these rooms have received a fresh coat of paint, new curtains, and a few other things. Our previous curtains were the standard 84″ inch panels. Now let’s take a second to talk about that word standard. In my book standard is just another word for average. Don’t be afraid to be better than average! Let me explain. Before you hang your curtains think about two words. High and wide. Check out my video below where I walk you through it and hang my new curtains!
The Best Way to Hang Curtains
Remember the words, high and wide! Let your natural light shine in and your ceiling height soar. Are you a believer yet? In case you are not, here is a little before and after for you to better visualize the difference.
Even though I know this trick works, I am still always amazed at how big of an impact curtains can really have! By simply moving the curtain rods up and hanging longer length panels, this room feels at least a foot taller! Aside from all the other projects we have going on simultaneously right now, this was an easy afternoon project I could easily check off my list.
As you can see we are in the home stretch on this makeover and I hope to wrap up my design tweaks this week so I can share the finished space with you!
