Same curtains, adjacent rooms... same or different height?
January 31, 2014
My dining room and living room flow into each other, but the dining room has an 8 foot ceiling and the living room is vaulted. I want to put the same curtains from the dining room in the living room. I have the dining room curtains set just above the windows because I bought 84 inch panels. I think it looks pretty much ok because of the the low ceiling. However, I would like to get 96 inch panels for the living room and hang them one foot higher than the windows. Will it look weird to have the same panels all along the wall but have the two by the fireplace higher up? My instinct is that it will look ok because of the different ceiling heights, but my husband says no. I do think they will look dinky down at the 7 foot height to match the dining room. I could raise the ones in the dining room by a few inches, but would have to lengthen them somehow. I plan to have two panels on each window by the fireplace. What to do, what to do? (BTW, lots more changes needed and coming to the spaces.) Thanks!
