The first thing that you don’t want to do is install the curtain rod too low. When the curtain rod is too low the curtains make the window look smaller. Smaller windows will in turn make the entire room look smaller. To give the illusion of space, make sure that you are installing the curtain rod a couple of inches above the window.

Another mistake that you should avoid is buying curtains that are not wide enough for your window. When the curtains aren’t wide enough not only will they not look good, but they also might not function very well when you are trying to block the sunlight. A way to ensure that this doesn’t happen is to measure the windows first, and then buy curtains that are a couple of inches wider.

All in all, if you are looking to install window curtains in your home, remember these two things.
