Julie Sousa, an avid interior designer, shared a tip about your curtains that might make your home appear smaller.

It’s all about how you hang them.

In a social media video, Sousa began, “Hanging your curtains closest to the window trim makes your room look smaller.

“What you want to do instead is hang them as close to the ceiling as possible and put your brackets 10 to 12 inches after your window trim so they don’t block light.”
