Have I got a low ceiling ? [hmm]

Been measuring for curtains and find that the 228cm of ready mades are too long. 228cms seems the standard drop for floor lenght.

My entire drop for a floor length curtain from the coving to the floor is 225cms.

Without coving the ceiling height would be another 5-6 cms.

I never thought we had a low ceiling- it's a modernish house. I've got 19cms above the top of the doorframe to the ceiling.

My ceiling height is 187cm yours is low but not that low I think.

230 cms is low and the UK standard is 240cms.

Builders now seem to build build 220 - 230cms.

Anyway 228cms would be fine as they would have a nice pool of fabric on the floor, this is a look in itself. Or hem them.

If you have pencil pleat curtains you could put the hooks in the lowest row of loops in the heading tape. It will give you a higher heading and pick them up off the floor at bit but as @bloodywhitecat says the fashion is to have them sweeping the floor and puddling slightly.
