Good Question: Curtain Length for Living Room Windows?

Good Question: Curtain Length for Living Room Windows?

Dear AT: Boston, I have electric baseboard heating underneath the three windows in my living room. What length curtain should I have? I do not want the curtains to fall too close to the heat but worry that shorter curtains
will make the walls look short...

Good question, Mary. Curtain length is definitely a matter of preference but your heating issue might rule out floor length window coverings. You could always go with a roman shade and avoid the length issue altogether. Anyone with an idea for Mary's curtain conundrum?
