I’m an interior expert – a quick change to how you hang your curtains will make your room look bigger and brighter

WHEN redecorating your home, how you install your curtains can affect how your room looks and how much light comes in.

But fret not, a home decorating expert has revealed how to properly install them so your home looks extra luxurious.


Julie Sousa, who shares plenty of home decor content on social media, claimed that where you hang your curtain rods can either make the room look smaller or bigger.

"If you're hanging your curtains closest to the trim, you're making your room feel smaller," she claimed in a video.

Instead, she suggested hanging them as close to the ceiling as possible.

"Install your brackets 10 to 12 inches away from the window trim so it doesn't block any light."

Not only is this going to open up the room and let in more natural light, but it'll also make your home feel and look rich.

Another way to make your home look pricey is by adding lighting to your indoor plants.

In another video, she explained that homeowners must avoid draping curtains that aren’t wide enough to create the gathered look.

Instead, she said: “If you want to make your house look expensive, measure the width of your window and multiply that by three, it will be the total width for curtain panels needed in order to achieve a luxurious look and feel.”

And to help understand the formula more, one follower commented saying: “Ok so say the window is 36 inches wide, 36 x 3 = 108, so she’s saying get 108 inches worth of curtains. So 2 x 54 inch wide panels.”
