      Interior design cheat sheet window covering and area rug sizing

      1. Which WINDOW is bigger? 2. Which window treatment provides more light, view and air? 3. Which window treatment makes the room feel larger? 4. Which window treatment makes a more interesting statement ? 5. Which window treatment says custom designed look? Answers: 1.- Both windows are the same size and placement on the wall. 2. 3. 4. 5.- Window #2 (you A’ced that one) As you can see, simple placement of drapery on the wall, makes a huge difference in the feel of the room. This illustration shows, by hanging your drapery close to ceiling height (on 8-9 ft. walls), and, out onto the wall area next to the window, your windows looks twice as big and much more impressive in the room. Yes, this will require a little more expense… longer rod and longer length and width of drapery (if you want the drapery to close completely, not just stationary side panels). But, the impact this simple adjustment makes, will define your room as “well designed” and adds a custom look to your windows. I like to extend the rod 12″-20″ wider on either side of the window, (if room permits). Then stationary panels will hang nicely in that space. Cover about 2 inches of window with the leading edge of the drape. For light control, you can hang a sheer behind on a double rod or blinds or shades mounted inside the window frame. Hang decorative rods close to the ceiling, allow for the height of the finial. If you have crown moulding, hang just below the moulding. If you want fully functional drapery. Figure rod width first and multiply that by 2 to 2 1/2 times, for fullness of the drapery fabric. Look in model homes or decorating magazines at how designers hang the drapery. As you enter a room, your direct line of view is at window level…make it interesting and exciting. Let the window be the artwork and the window treatment the frame. These are some important details that give a home a designer look and feel. With vaulted ceilings, hang draperies at the 8 or 9 ft. height, or all the way up above the highest window. Then out on the wall as room permits. There are many ways to dress a window. I like to keep draperies fairly simple. Simple straight hanging panels compliment any decorating style. Let the “fabric” and “correct placement” on the window/wall do all the talking. So…try hanging those draperies, UP and OUT. Up near the ceiling and out on the wall. You’ll love how it makes your room look and feel.
