Is it OK if curtains don’t touch the floor?

So should curtains touch the floor? The short answer is yes… usually. But when making any decision about your window treatments, whether they’re drapes, blinds, or shades, it’s important to consider every aspect of style and function so you can choose the best option for your windows and your home.

How can I make my curtains shorter without cutting them?

You can shorten these without a permanent hem by folding the top over toward the back of the curtain. Pin the fold down to create a new pocket to slide the rod into. If you pin only into the lining of the curtain, the pins won’t show on the front of the curtain.
