Do vs. Don't :: Draperies 101

I came across this photo on Pinterest a while back and it is a simple yet fabulous illustration of how to properly hang draperies to make both a room and window appear larger. Just look at the difference! ALWAYS have the rod hung at the ceiling {well, with normal ceiling and window heights, but there is always room for re-evaluation here}, and if you can have the inner edge of the curtains hit the outside of the window while open, that helps enlarge the window tremendously as well so it won't feel closed off. Double doors don't call for the width aspect as much, but single/stand alone windows are a must for this method! Helpful, right?! Happy hanging!
