Good Questions: Inexpensive Window Treatments?

Dear AT folks, I guess I'm writing with a plea for help! I recently moved into an apartment with HUGE ceilings (14 feet+) and I have no idea what to do for my window/door treatment. Curtains that are the standard 108 inches are about 8 inches shy of floor length and I think it looks a bit...silly. I considered getting some custom made shades but even that will run over a thousand dollars. I don't want to spend that much and I really want to add some color into the room considering there is no way I have the stamina to paint (all my furniture is now moved in and the room is far too large for me to handle on my own). Any help from AT readers is appreciated. Thanks, Zak
