Seventeen-Foot Curtains in My Living Room?

Good Questions

Pin it button big

Q: I've now lived in this house for over two years and still can't decide if I should put up curtains in my living room. My heart says yes but my wallet says no for fear of 17 foot tall curtains not really being in the "easy return" category.

These pictures read as low light, which is true (northern light), but not as badly as they show here. The other consideration is that since the room is sunken (for lack of a
better term), the windows can be seen from the kitchen, so they'd need to work from there as well. Also, any furniture in this room is subject to be reupholstered; I've been waiting to make up my mind on the curtain situation before doing any of that. Thoughts?
