Window Treatment Help
December 29, 2012
This is a little bit of an older picture (no more stuff on the windowsill) but I have removed these old curtains (they were here when we moved in) and I just ordered some vertical blinds. I'm not a fan of blinds, but we have to have something on this window for sunset or we can't see! They will split in the middle and for the most part, they will always be open. My question is ... what type of window treatment would you suggest for this window. Valance?

Pretty much the same as this picture, but panels to the floor, hung higher on the wall, and full enough to cover the set back of your vertical blinds.

Gosh, I kind of like the knee high curtains - they're fun and flirty! I would rather you had opted for top-down bottom- up shades, shutters or Romans - but since you didn't, you can work with the veritcals - unless you can return them?

At any rate, I'd consider knee highs again, this time in a fun pattern.

Your room has great volume and natural light. I think you should use drapery panels much like you have already hung. I suggest you purchase panels that go to the floor and add another width to each side. I would also advise you to use a more substantial rod that is at least 13/8" diameter. You may also want to think about hang the same treatment at the same height at the patio door. This will create more balance and warmth in the space. Happy Decorating! Kerry Darwish,

I agree, floor length drapery panels, with a rod place higher off the top of the window. You could have placed a sheer behind the panels to let in some natural light. Roman shades would have been my advice instead of those verticals...I think you will regret those verticals in time.

I just wondered if you found new curtains? And what they look like :)
