Corner windows offer a great source of natural lighting and outdoor views in residential spaces. But these windows can be very tricky to decorate when it comes to treating them with window coverings. Not every kind of window treatment works with these windows. It’s important to first determine your aesthetic and functional preferences before buying corner window treatments.
In today’s blog post, we’ll guide you through some simple yet stylish ways to treat corner windows in your home.
Hang Semi-Sheer Curtains
Since corner windows allow a lot of light inside a room depending on the location in your home, don’t cut out the natural light by hanging heavy draperies. Treat the corner windows as a single unit to create a unifying look and use semi-sheer or sheer curtains instead to cover them. Sheer curtain panels are airy, decorative and are available in a wide variety of colours and patterns to suit all styles of living areas. They also provide a certain level of privacy without compromising on incoming light intensity.
Use 90-degree adapters with your hanging rods to create the illusion of an ongoing window from one wall to another wall. Hang the sheer curtains and gather one on each side of the unit. When you don’t want to keep the curtains open, say for example at night, you can simply pull them across in the middle for privacy.
If your corner windows are tall and large, window treatments like valances are the right choice when you don’t want to cover their entire height. Choose a heavy fabric valance with loops and tassels. It’ll help create the illusion of a smooth turn at the corner providing a coherent appearance to the whole set of windows. A valance will also help add a visual interest to the room decor.
Vertical blinds are an excellent solution when you have a small wall gap between your corner windows. Depending on your preference, you can either opt for an inside or an outside mount mechanism. However, if you don’t have a wall gap between the windows, an inside mount roller blind or a Venetian blind is a more suitable choice. Each of these blinds will provide a beautiful streamlined look to your windows and the overall room.
Consider Layered Treatments
To add more style and introduce a designer look to your corner windows, you can pair up two different kinds of window treatments. For example, you can layer blinds with curtains or sheers. The blinds will provide enhanced privacy when pulled down while the sheers or open curtains won’t hinder incoming light or outdoor views. You can also try the stylish combination of draperies with valances or window scarves.
