2. Make windows appear bigger by hanging curtains higher and wider

It’s an easy and wonderful optical illusion that makes your windows look much more extensive than they appear to be. This design feature also gives you some leeway in trying to find precisely the right width of bar and length of curtains if your windows are strange sizes. You might think this little change is no big deal, but you’ll be surprised by how much bigger this will make your room feel. When you hang the curtain rods higher, it will make the ceiling feel like it’s taller too.
