If you’re one of the many homeowners whose home has multiple windows grouped together, or odd-sized windows, then you likely understand the challenges involved in finding the right window covering solutions. Here are six ideas that can get your imagination flowing.
1. Blend in
When you want to maximize the sunlight that comes in your home but want options to increase privacy when you need it, cellular shades are a great option. Install them as high up on the wall as you can so that when they’re rolled up, they’ll blend right in and be invisible – but when you need them, you can simply roll them down and control the light.
2. Bring cohesion to different window sizes
It can be extra challenging to find window coverings for groups of windows that are not all uniform in size. The best option is to bring cohesion by utilizing the same fabrics and patterns for all window coverings. Though this obviously won’t change the size or shape of the windows, it will maintain the light and airy feel throughout.
3. Dealing with curved windows
Curved bay windows bring their own challenges. They do require their own window treatment for each window, but blinds can provide the base covering and curtains can be hung over them. This allows the owner to get both the function of the blinds and the style of the curtains.
4. Accentuate the differences
Some homeowners want to downplay the different sizes of their windows, but others choose to embrace them by hanging wildly patterned curtains over all windows, or mixing and matching prints and solids.
5. A single shade or panel of draperies
Custom drapes and shades are easier to get and more affordable than you may think. You may want to pick a single honeycomb or roman shade to cover the entire bank of windows, or perhaps a single drapery that covers them all. This adds a true focal point and is the bold look many homeowners get excited about.
6. Emphasize your architecture
If you have unique architecture in your home, let your window coverings show it off! You might choose hardware that fits in with the period in which your home was built, you may buy heavy velvet drapes to accentuate a Victorian home, or perhaps you’ll choose wooden shades to fit in with a ranch style home.
You have lots of options – even for strangely sized or grouped windows – and Half Price Drapes is here to offer a huge selection and affordable prices.
