Heating elements, length of drapes, help
We have baseboard heating in our house, and I've been working on replacing some of our 20 year old window treatments. In the master bedroom, cotton curtains with tie-backs (leaving radiators mostly uncovered) were replaced with long, luxurious linen drapes that cover the radiators (why do they have to be right under the windows?). In the living room, on the wide picture window, we now have short, just past the sill drapes. The length is mostly hidden by the sofa. The ones I love (long story) cover the baseboard heating elements along that floor and pool a bit on the floor. It's hard to tell now, in this weather, what the results of covering up the heating elements will be, come winter. For you that live in cold climates, is it really an issue?
