Curtains that are too short
The most common mistake made when hanging curtains is buying curtains that are too short. If your curtains are too short, your room becomes optically smaller, just like with a curtain rod that is placed too low. When hanging curtains, consider the following lengths:
Curtains that end 1 to 2 cm above the floor: floating curtains are ideal when you have a long pile carpet. By having the curtains end just above the floor, you can open and close the curtain without any difficulty.
Curtains that end exactly at the floor: this length creates a neat and clean effect, but is difficult to achieve because you have to be very precise and hang the curtain rod at the exact right height.
Puddle: curtains that are a little too long create a romantic puddle effect. The curtain puddle works best with curtains made of luxury materials such as velvet. A disadvantage of this length is that the curtains might get dusty.
