Hanging curtains at ceiling level

I read somewhere where curtains should be hung at the ceiling rather than just above the window trim.  It gives the illusion of height — great for a small room or low ceiling.

In the my past home, I did hang my curtains at ceiling height for a dramatic affect rather than giving the illusion of height because in this case I had tall ceilings.

Lengthening curtains

But, still this is good advice because I found this to be true with the wall picture hanging system installed in a small office/spare room.  The system was flush at the ceiling with wires hanging down vertically for the pictures to hang on.  I was nervous that this system would close the room in, but it did just the opposite.  I was pleasantly surprised since this was such a small room.
