How to Treat Unconventional Window Sizes

Large or oddly shaped windows can give your home a distinct personality, but it can also be a pain to decorate. So where do you start? Here are a few ideas on how you can treat your unconventional windows.


Fabric panels are a great solution to unconventionally tall windows. This option has a hidden track from which the panel hangs. You can install a panel that hangs down over the window or you can also install the panel (or panels) to slide horizontally across the window. Panels come in a variety of colors and materials so you can match your existing decor. 


Installing shutters is another great option for unusual windows. While they can be a pricier choice compared to other solutions, you don’t have to cover the entire window. Covering just a portion of the window is sometimes enough. 


Sheer drapes are a good choice for those who want to diffuse some light throughout the day without compromising the entire window. Mounting sheers at the cove molding will cover both arched and squared windows. Sheers can be a less expensive solution depending on how they are mounted, finished, and the type of fabric you use.


If you have difficulty deciding on just one, combining multiple types of window treatments might be the way to go. You can use sheer drapes alongside shutters to give a new ambiance to any room in your home. Your creativity is the only limit!
