Run an extra-long curtain rod up near the ceiling all the way across the windows, then buy drapes that skim the ground. It will look great when you are done!

Are they making cordless bottom up shades now? That was always my complaint, but I love the concept for privacy yet light.

There are also top down bottom up woven woods out there. They do provide u with privacy and can include blackout lining if desired. Then at a later time you could also layer with curtains which could be just side panel type to add depth and interest.

Shutters would look clean and simple.

Your style is contemporary or transitional then plantation shutters or 3 tailored roman shades would look great. If roman shades then mount them above the windows so when they stack up most of the window is open. Shutters are a good option because you can tilt the blades to control the sun , still see out without completely closing curtains or shades. Either of these two treatments look great with either contemporary or traditional design. If you prefer curtains then I agree with dcer. Floor to ceiling.
Verisol or pleated shades looks a little sterile and unfinished. Go with amore polished look like shutters, roman shades or curtains to compliment your pretty paned windows.

I vote for shades and panels. Hang the panels high (see attached photo) and hang the Roman shades so that the top is just under the rod. Be sure to hang a panel between each window so they look finished.

I"d suggest plantation shutters as well with larger louvers. Generally the larger the louver the more light control you have (fewer cracks) and the less obstructions you have when open. At minimum I'd recommend a 3 1/2' louver (traditional plantation shutters are usually 2 1/2") but a 4 1/2" would be very nice and open and "cleaner" looking. If the room needs to be warmed up, cozied up a bit, then I'd suggest a warm wood stain...mahogany or oxblood. If the room is contemporary I'd go for a striking brown black stain that would pop against white woodwork

My first thought was roman blinds for your windows, the shape of a relaxed roman would suit your windows beautifully. Restoration Hardware is now doing shades, great selection of fabrics from linen to sheers and very competetive in pricing.

Hi, I see you have toys on the floor. I say get beautiful Hunter Douglas silhouettes with panels. The little ones will destroy long puddling curtains on the floor. My crew is 9,8 and 4. The four year got permanent black marker on my couch this morning. I have so many rules about markers and pens my rules have rules. Some how something always slips through the crack. Good luck

Shutters or simple washable curtain panels are relatively kid proof and dog proof. Look at Roman shades carefully to see if the cords can be safe for small children.

I would definitely add 1 long curtain rod 2" from ceiling and 2 extra wide Pottery Barn Peyton drapes. They are good quality, lined cotton linen and wide enough to add fullness on either side.

You can visually raise the ceiling by hanging floor to ceiling draperies. If you prefer light and privacy and a less formal look I suggest cafe curtains. :)
