Curtains Part 1: Hello Ceiling

So spring is officially here - but where is the nice weather? We're still waiting! Anyway, I had a conversation the other day about curtains that someone had just hung in their freshly painted brand new house. They were concerned that the panels they bought were too short, but thought maybe they could still get away with them. My response was that yes they were not only too short, but they should have been hung higher! By hanging curtains high and wide it maximizes the amount of natural light that comes in and makes the room seem much bigger, as shown in the illustrations below.


        Do                                                                         Don't

Here are some photos that illustrate the same idea.
