Usually the curtains cover the windows, so they hang too low and don’t look impressive. Raise the curtain rod to the ceiling for more space. The curtains must be 4 to 6 inches from the ceiling. The length of the fabric would increase but they will look fantastic and become more noticeable.

  1. Your curtains are too narrow
Narrow curtains don’t appeal much

The same rule that is not to hang the curtains too low, applies when it comes to width. Both the window and the room must seem to have good space, as you move the curtain to the side. One can consider it both upwards and sideways.

  1. Your curtains are too short
