Hang Your Drapes At The Right Height
This may seem like a small detail, but making sure drapes are hanging correctly can make the difference between your place looking like a kitty litter box gone wild and looking like a glamour-mansion. The correct height for drapes is a fourth inch to a half inch off the ground.

To make sure this happens, you basically have to put together the rod, rings, and drapery panels BEFORE they are installed to measure out exactly how they'll fall once they're hung. This is annoying, but the alternatives are high-water drapes (no thanks) or drapes that dangle all over the floor getting filthier and filthier by the day.
