In older homes, indoor wood shutters built into the walls are so superimposed in line with tops of door frames 2m (6 ft. 8 inches). This gives a clean, even look in the whole room. With 2.4m (8ft) ceilings, as standard, this provides a 40cm (16 inch) gap between the top and ceiling, allowing casting and even the largest overlays.
Modern homes have significantly higher ceilings, usually within the range of 2.7-3 m (9 to 10 feet). At this height it is stupid to keep the windows 2m (6 ft. 8 inches), especially with larger windows. But the indoor wood shutters are traditionally about 90 cm (3 feet) from the floor to allow furniture to be placed underneath them. If the window is much longer, there is no need to make sure the window is 90 cm (3 feet) from the floor. Modern homes also tend to have deeper rooms, so in order to keep from restricting the view; the windows can be set all the way up to the ceiling – even using the roof rack as the window head trim.
