THE WINDOWS WE WANT TO TREAT RIGHT BUT OFTEN GET WRONG

Exterior Doors

If you have exterior glass doors, consider hanging a single drapery panel on the hinged side of the door, with a rod fully extending beyond the door width.  When you want more privacy, simply pull the panel completely across. If the one-sided look doesn’t fit your space, or you have double doors, simply hang another panel on the other side, leaving room for the door to open and close without restriction.windows-1Window Seating

For an extra-cozy and stylish look, layer the windows with a designer combo of shades and decorative drapery panels so you can utilize the space in front of the window for seating or built-in storage. To get this right, refer to our website where you can learn how to measure windows and then create the perfect custom look.   windows-2Wall of Windows

If your sunroom or other living space is lined with walls of large windows, consider incorporating full height custom drapes installed at natural breaks in the glass or evenly spaced intervals around the room. Extremely tall drape panels are challenging to operate, consider adding shades to control your privacy, light, and temperature as well.windows-3Large Bathroom Window

Water-resistant curtains or shades add stylish color and much-needed privacy to an extra-tall bathroom window. Look for synthetic fibers, outdoor fabric, or decorative shower curtain fabric to ensure a long life. Shades, curtains, or valances can add life to any bathroom.  For other Interior Design tips, check out our website in the Interior Design Community.windows-5Stair Windows

Don’t forget to treat your stair windows.  Be sure to use custom window treatments that don’t have cords dangling over the stairs or extra drape fabric pooled on the floor, for safety purposes.  Unless your neighbors are extremely close, privacy is likely not an issue here so allow as much light as possible to come through the treatment.  Using custom drapes on the stairs adds much-needed softness to an otherwise “hard” area of the home. windows-6There’s no need to be afraid of treating windows in awkward places.  The things to always consider are the direction the room faces toward the sun as it either rises or sets, how much privacy you need in the room, and how the treatment needs to operate.  Once you can determine those questions, you can create custom window treatments that will perfectly finish your space!
