Question re: Hanging Curtains
What is more important when it comes to hanging curtains? For the curtain rod to be mounted near the ceiling, or for the curtains to touch the floor?
My predicament: My family room has 10 ft ceilings. The top of the window trim is about 7 ft from the floor. The curtains we picked out for the family room only come in 84" length, which I thought would be fine. I mounted the rods right above the window trim and the curtains go down to the floor. However, after living with it for a few days, it's beginning to look...weird. Having all that space at the top of the window is making the windows look strangely out of proportion to the rest of the room. I want to remount the hardware closer to the ceiling, but that will mean that my curtains will stop where the window does, and I'm afraid that will have the same affect, just opposite (if that makes any sense at all).
What should I do?
