Drapes High And Wide?

Can someone please explain this to me? if the top of the window trim to the floor is 84", should I get longer drapes and hang them up close to the ceiling?

I feel it's a personal choice. I've put the rods above the window in some rooms, while in others I've put them up to the ceiling, below the crown molding. It's just a matter of what you like for that space.

It depends on whether you want your ceilings to appear to be higher than they are. Floor to ceiling curtains will visually heighten the ceiling of a room. It's a popular treatment for rooms with average 8ft ceilings.

Ultimately whatever you feel most comfortable with, but personally, design 2 makes a cleaner and more dynamic statement. Design 1 is dated and what was the old school of thought. Ceiling to floor drapes will make your room feel 'taller'

Yes---hang'em and wide. It will not only make the ceiling look higher, but the window(s) will appear wider as well. CheerS!
