Hanging Drapery 101:
“How high should drapes be hung above a window?”

Answer: The ideal measurement is two inches below the ceiling.

Hanging drapery at this height allows the bottom of the drapes to brush the ground. This avoids a common mistake of allowing the drapes to pool together on the floor. “Drapes are an accessory added to a room to highlight its window features and add another detail of design,” said Alyssa Sherman, an interior designer at Ivory Homes. “Follow these tips and your eyes will notice a difference in a room, making windows appear longer.” The length of drapery also depends on the ceiling height. If the ceiling is eight feet tall, the length of drapes you need is 96 inches. If the ceiling is nine feet tall, the appropriate drape length is 108 inches. These lengths are pre-cut and can be found online and in stores that sell interior home décor.
