How high should a curtain rod be above a window?
A curtain rod in most standard homes should be placed just above the window frame. By giving about 4 to 8 inches of space between the rod and the window frame you have the optimal amount of room for hanging the rod, as well as insulation for the window. Based on the size of the windows and the height of the ceilings, this could vary slightly.
How to hang curtains with a 10 foot ceiling?
Hanging the curtains with 10 foot ceilings is a little more tricky. Often the ceiling are this high because the windows are oversized meaning there is not much space over the window to place the curtain rod. In this case you should do one of two things: hang it a close as you can to the ceiling, or hang the curtains from the ceiling.
How do you measure a curtain rod?
In a house in which everything is straight, it makes sense to use the top of the window frame or the ceiling as a reference for the curtain rod using a tape measure to ensure both ends of the rod are the same distance from either the ceiling or the window frame.
What size curtains do I need for an 8?ceiling?
Do use curtains that reach the floor. Your curtains should either be 1/2?above the floor, kiss the floor, or puddle on the floor. For 8?ceilings, I recommend standard 96?curtains which you can then adjust up and down or hem up the bottom if needed. Don use a panel on just one side of the window.
