Window air conditioner dilemna
November 24, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Pre-war NYC apartment with double-hung traditional windows has a window air-conditioning unit mounted at the top of the window to improve cooling in the bedroom. Planning to build a window seat underneath, but looking for valance or curtain options. Want to cover air-conditioner when not in use, but need to pull it aside in summer.
Thank you for reporting this. Undo
How about roman blinds? One covering each window. Designed so it can sit up high to expose the AC when needed, dropped down a little to hide it, while letting the sun in.
Then if you need more daytime sun control or privacy, add blinds behind the romans. Perhaps like the ones you have already. You can get the ones that pull up from the base too.
