Question

However, I am still having a difficult time deciding on window treatments for the sliding door and the different size small windows next to the sliding door.

Should I continue the black and white curtains on the sliding door and the two corner windows?

I also need some advice or suggestions on the area above my kitchen cabinets, my sister suggested a splash of red. I absolutely will not put green plastic plants in that space (I absolutely do not want fake or real plants up there and no green). I want to stay contemporary.

Thank you for your help

Answer

From what you said last time it seems to me that you do not have enough space on the side of the windows for stacking the curtains, so how about a the black and white striped valance to bring together all three, the black and white striped curtains, the black and white kitchen, and the other windows?

For the area on top of the cabinets you can put pottery that is black and white with a splash of red.

Awkward window layout- Need help with drapery location

Great Room Windows

Great Room Windows

Question

I have an awkward situation with the windows in my great room. As you will see in the picture I have a set of windows and sliding glass doors next to each other. I am looking to do silk drapes and place them at the highest point, which is above the two windows.

Here is my problem, location of the drapes; one at the far left of the window and then one at the far right next to the sliding glass door. Or should I frame the windows and sliding glass doors separately?

I have had this dilemma for the last 4 years and I am desperate need of some help!

Thank you in advance for your time.

Answer

If you should frame the windows and sliding door separately or together is a personal taste. Framing them with draperies together will definitely look grander.

You can do a ceiling mount and put the draperies wall to wall not just taking in the windows and door but also the area outside it (if there is any space there) to take in the complete wall.

Two windows in one bedroom

Question

I have a rectangular bedroom with a large window at the far end. To the left of entering the room there is a smaller window. The room is around 14'x22' long.

Is it OK to put a blind on the smaller window which directly faces the window of our neighbor and drapes at the far end looking out amongst the trees in our backyard.

Thanks,

Debra

Answer

Hi Debra,

Your concern is how to cover your two windows with what you feel is necessary for the window individually but are concerned that the room should flow correctly.

The two windows are not very close together and not on the same wall. Therefore one idea is to cover the small side window with blinds that are a color that blends well with the walls so no focus is on this window just on the large one with the drapes.

If you want to bring the two together you can cover the small window with fabric shades of the same fabric as the drapes. Or the fact that you have blinds on the small window does not have to keep you from adding drapes on top of it.

Whatever you decide to do don't forget to come back to show off when you finish decorating your windows.
