How high to mount a bedroom window curtain rod?
Christine RDecember 11, 2013
I've seen some rooms where the curtains are basically at the ceiling but wasn't sure if there are certain situations where that is more/less desirable.

The only logical place for the bed in this room is with the headboard up against the window. It is a very wide window, as you can see. My plan so far is to put sheers towards the middle with more opaque panels at either end. I'm not set on that so if you have other ideas please let me have them!

There are mounting brackets already there, but I can move them easily if higher is better.

Room will be painted with BM Pale Smoke or maybe one shade lighter, Patriotic White. Bedding is a paisley type print.

I think you can go all the way up with your window treatments. It will work well with the fireplace and make the room feel taller. Looks like it is going to be beautiful.

Since you have a small area between window and ceiling. Go to ceiling or 2" below it. Love your colors.

Ceiling. It will balance with the fireplace.

Ceiling level will be perfect. Consider a stunning chandelier in place of the fan to reflect in the FP mirror.

You have a short, fat window--install the rod all the way up. Ceiling mount would be even better. I like your idea of sheers in the middle with panels on the ends. How much will your headboard project into the window?
