Do you want your ceilings to appear higher and your room to feel bigger? Then follow this easy home maintenance tip. When you hang your curtains, don’t put them in the traditional spot. Instead, get a step ladder so you can easily add them about one inch above the frame of the window. Remember to use the right nail depending on the wall type. To do this, verify if your wall is drywall or plaster.

Colors can also have a big impact on how big or small a room feels. White curtains help to let sunlight in while adding an airy feeling to a room. Using other light colors and shades throughout will further help to make the room feel larger than it really is.
