I want to hang sheers and a drape in my nursery...the window is small and doesn't go all the way to the floor...it also has a sill. Should I still have the sheers and drape go all the way to the floor?
Here's the look I'm going for, but I'd only need one panel of each due to the size of the window.

I would say yes, get the drapes long enough to hit the floor. I had some really tall windows in my last house and our drapes came just to the baseboards. It looked like I was waiting for a flood! Plus, it was hard to get the curtain rod placed correctly above the window, so we had to move it up a few inches. The extra length is always helpful and, from the HGTV overdose I have experienced, the longer look is always more in fashion. ;)
Hope that helps! The drapes are lovely and will be adorable in your nursery.
p.s. if you do end up having to hem, it's very simple. Plus, you'll have just enough fabric to use as a swatch when matching other items in the room. :)

Congrats on your little girl! I'm not sure I ever told you that "over there".
I would definately hang them to the floor, if you decide to use curtains. You will need to be careful when the precious babe starts crawling and walking. If she uses them to pull herself up, they could come crashing down. I never thought about that until I saw my neice do it... scared me to death, the heavy rod hit her on the head. :eek:

I concur with having them reach the floor. If you don't want the sill to get in the way of hanging, just get a rod with a long extension from the wall.

ditto on hitting the floor!

Thank you! That's what I thought, too, but I wanted my decorating tastes confirmed by others. ;)
Hangin'in - thank you for the congrats and thanks for the tip, too! I'll keep that in mind. Maybe when she starts pulling herself up and walking, we'll switch to the blinds we have.
