I have an 8 foot wide bay window with vertical blinds for privacy.

Can you please suggest how I could dress the window with non functional curtains on either side.There is no ceiling plinth at the top so window is up to ceiling height. However, there is a deep window sill.

Any chance you can post a picture of the existing treatments? And are you looking to add curtains in addition to the verticals or replacing the verticals with the stationary panels?

How much privacy do you need like room darkening privacy or just so ppl cant see directly in?

Thankyou for your responses. The bay is six panels and I only want to dress the two end panels.The window goes directly to the ceiling and there is quite a deep window cill.Have tried two small poles running adjacent to window but it looks like a stage setting !!! The blinds provide the privacy so the curtains are merely to dress the windows.

I would use an Ibeam track just wide enough on either side to hang the drapery . I would recommend picking a pretty heading like Pinch pleat or Goblet pleat so that's what would stand out. This type of track if installed correctly will be completely invisible once drapery is installed.
