I realize window treatments are tricky, but if you do not want your treatments to look out of date, do not let the curtain bottom dangle in the air like the photo above.
Or like this:
The reason I am mentioning this again is because a new client I am working with did not know this. She said that she sees them in other homes! I also still see them often in homes that are listed for sale.
It might be confusing to some especially when the shorter treatments are still available to purchase:
I think it is a disservice to homeowners to sell short window treatments!
And please do not be afraid of the fabric catching on fire. In all my years of decorating and all of my research, I have never heard of window panels catching on fire because it was on top of a heater vent.
My advice is if the window can not use full length panels, a shade might be the best solution.
Do you agree or disagree that window treatments should reach the floor or not hang at all?
