Window help
Madeleine Gillis
October 3, 2012 in Design Dilemma
So I have a sliding door and window that has a weird shape right next to it (kind of like an upside down L shape). I'm just curious about whether or not I should have the curtains/shades in matching fabrics for both the sliding doors and window or try to be creative and have them in different but complimenting fabrics/patterns The room is not painted yet and it's pretty much a blank canvas at this point. The only thing that I do have and would like to match well with whatever is chosen is an espresso colored sectional. We also tend to side more with transitional or contemporary styled looks. Thank you for any recommendations :)

I'd match the fabric, the style can be varied. L Kitchen Welcome to Relaxation!

If the fabrics are the same or almost the same as the walls the room will appear larger. East-meets-west in San Francisco's Russian Hill

Definitely match. That's not an electrical panel in the corner. Is it?
If so, you might have to go with something like j222b's 3rd example ("East-meets-west in San Francisco's...").

Hang fabric and pole straight across and you won't notice the odd shape.

Thanks j222b, AMN and Jennifer Scully. And yes...it is an electrical panel :( hence another reason to have something extend the full length of the wall.
