Corner Windows - What to Do?

Corner windows can be a challenge so what are the best window treatments for this area or what can be done to make it more visually appealing?
  • When windows are separated at the corner but are too close to really separate them with two separate window treatments, you can make them appear "connected" by a single drape that goes from one window to the other without stopping. This can also make the room appear larger.

  • Corner windows can be spruced up by adding multi-layered window treatments which can help define each window.

  • Folding screens can be placed in front of the windows to add some visual art to the corner.

  • Sometimes the scale of the window to the room might be off, so you can camouflage this by extending the window treatment beyond the edge of the windows. This will make the window appear larger than it actually is.

  • Shutters are a nice way to dress up corner windows without drapery.

  • Angling a bed in the corner of those two windows makes a visual statement to the room and draws your eyes to it.

  • If you are still researching ideas for those corner windows, don't leave them bare so that everyone can have a peak in to your home; instead, buy some paper blinds until you can figure it out - this applies to other windows in your home as well.

Enjoy your week!
