Odd windows: Curtains or blinds?

January 29, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Hi everyone, have a bit of a problem with the windows in my bedroom. I have a wall to wall window on one side of the room, and then two smaller windows on the adjoining side. I also have a ledge against both sides of the room. I know I’m not describing this well, please see pictures.

My problem is stylistically, blinds look better for the room, but as you can see in the pictures, there is significant light seepage around the edges of the blinds. Curtains would solve this problem, but because of the shortness of the windows (and the one narrow window on the other side of the room), they’d look weird.

Any thoughts on what I could do? Thanks so much in advance!

I would run honeycomb blinds (blackout or not), one running the whole distance to the edge of the other window, then run the short one so it runs into the other blind making a butt joint. this seems to me to be light tight and pleasing to the eye.

I would recommend room darkening Cellular shades they can be mounted much closer together . It will give you better light control you need in a bedroom .

I wouldn't say that curtains are not an option as long as you like the idea. Ikea has
a curtain rail system, Kvartal, with a corner piece.

Hospital track curtains, hung from the ceiling. IKEA is a great source for this idea.

Thanks again...would curtains not look weird on the narrow window though (please see 2nd picture, standalone window on the left)?

Wrap them all the way around the corner.
