Before and After:  Treating Challenging Windows

Before and After: Treating Challenging Windows

So many homes today feature fantastic windows – tall, arched or angled.  However, all that gorgeous glass often needs a finishing touch, and today’s shaped windows can make designing window treatments a challenge.

Stepped office windowThis small home office features a wall of windows that step down from the center panel.  They accentuate the ceiling height in the room, and let in tons of light to this north-facing space.  However, coming up with a window treatment that would highlight this unique feature in the room was not easy.

Here is what I came up with…simple…..elegant….and not horribly expensive.

This valance used a minimum amount of fabric, which kept the costs down.  Essentially, these were constructed like oversized placemats with the floral fabric on one side and a coordinating tone-on-tone stripe on the other.  Velcro tabs on top of the metal rod keep the panels in place.  office window after pic
