    its important that k.while hanging your curtains you take care whether you want them open or closed always because if you want them half closed then you must have tie ups stitched to give a neat look

    I have a baseboard heating system below my window. Is it OK to hang curtains over it so they reach the floor or should I hang just to the top of the baseboard?

    I have a baseboard heater below my window preventing me from hanging my curtains to the floor. How far away from the heater should the curtains fall?
