Window treatment for odd shaped windows.
Allison Fox
September 24, 2013 in Design Dilemma
This window is the main source of light into our bedroom. While I love the light, my husband does not, nor the lack of privacy.

Ideally we would like coverings which can block out or be open completely to allow maximum light and view.
I'm not keen on shutters or verticals, nor do I like the strings from venetians (but the cats do). I like roller blinds or curtains.

Any ideas for roller blind style for this type of window?
Or for mounting curtains on the ceiling?

WOW what a bedroom!! I love it and would give my right arm for it!! :) Blinds will definitely be a cleaner more fitted look and they will need to be custom because of the shape of the two side panels. Maybe check out the website and do something like this:

Boy, I would hate to see any fabric at those windows. The shape and the trim is what makes them so outstanding. Have you considered exterior blinds?

Such a great view! Have you thought about woven woods? You can get them in light colors (white and off white) to match your color scheme and you can get them angled as well. I would recommend motorized shades so they're easy to raise and lower. These will also provide you with a clean, yet natural looking product.

Gorgeous bedroom. I really love Hunter Douglas Luminettes, quite pricey though :)

The easiest solution for odd windows are plantation shutters, they can be made with arches, angled tops, ovals, trapezoids... you name it

Do you have to cover for sun, privacy? If not don't very nice the way they are. if want something go white grazy fabric, just on ends. Sheer.

Because of shape of windows, get in a pro. To discuss options. Roller shades would be my choice, they come in black out and go up out of sight. Get in white.

You have probably already taken care of your problem, but I just saw it today. If you've not already done something, you could put some gauzey white curtains hung from the ceiling (similar to outdoor curtains or canopy bed type curtains) between the bedroom and sitting area. You could run a long metal rod (or use long conduit painted) straight across the room. You would probably need to run a bracket straight up the the ceiling in the middle. That way you wouldn't have to hang anything on the window. When you go to bed, you could close them & then open in the morning.
