My livingroom has a large picture window that ends/starts about 3 feet from the floor (well, the sill is about even with the back of the sofa. So however tall an average sofa is is the bottom of the window). It currently has hideous 20+ year old half broken beige and reflective gold, floor to ceiling vericle blinds. Hideous. Obviously, I'd like to replace them. What I'm trying to figure out is how long the curtains should be. Should they go all the way to the floor, or just a little longer than the window? There are sofas and end tables in front of it, so you can't see much of the wall anyway, and it seems like a wast of money to pay for floor length curtains, but will it look weird if I don't? How much lower than the window sill should the curtains go?
