Curtains and window treatments serve multiple purposes.
Being decorative, providing privacy, and controlling temperature and light controlling — some window treatments can do it all.
“Always do panels if you are hanging window treatments,” Anderson says.
I did not realize how much curtain design had evolved.
After half an hour of deciding whether I wanted three-dimensional rose print wall panels or a plain look, I chose a light-blocking window panel in a popping, turquoise chevron print from Target ($29.99) to add character.
“Hang them higher than the actual window,” Anderson says. “It visually enhances the room and makes it look bigger.”
Hanging treatments higher was a useful trick to make my small space look much bigger.
My panel was a standard 84 inches long, and I hung it 8 inches above my window frame to create the illusion of high ceilings and a longer window.
