10 foot ceilings and window height
We're doing 10 foot ceilings and were planning to do 84" tall windows (most places) placed 14" off the floor. Nice and low to watch the ground creatures. Now I think the windows are too tall; once you add trim (5 1/2" above windows, 4" below, and 5 1/2" wide baseboards-I think). Plain boards for trim, craftsman style.
I'm afraid the bottoms of the window trim is going to be too close to the baseboards. And that there won't be enough wall showing above the windows once we add curtain rods, which we like to install above the trim 3" or so. (No crown molding; no picture molding.)
Doesn't matter how tall the ceilings, really. Everyone has the same proportional problem to solve. I can't find any "rules" or guidelines anywhere for how you do this. Does anybody know?
