Is my rod set too high ?

Do you think this curtain would look better hung just above the trim?

Hi Teresa

I fitted this curtain rod recently for a customer. It is fitted at the same height as yours.

I think it look great and so does yours. In my opinion most people install curtain rods far too low over the tops of windows.

Fitting at this level gives the window treatment a better impact. The window looks less cluttered. Also in your case the curtain length is just right for the neat floor length look you obviously wanted.

My customer on the other hand wanted their curtain to pool on to the floor. They where never going to close the curtain. It was there to just decorate the window.

So if it was my window I would leave well alone and pat yourself on the back for a job well done :-)

All the best

What Visitors Say

"Dear Lee, Just wanted to say I found your site last week and it was an absolute godsend. Most helpful and informative - easy to follow instructions - and my very first bay window pelmet looks like the work of a true (and expensive) professional!

The pelmet and curtains both look much better in real life than on the photo of course. My wife thinks it all looks the work of a real pro rather than a first time amateur! Many many thanks for your site.

Kind regards Neal"
