Choosing window treatments can be a challenge, especially if the windows aren’t traditionally shaped or positioned. It can be hard to find coverings that look good for two or more windows built side by side. This poses a problem because the window treatments need to provide the desired level of privacy and light control but can’t overlap.
What are your options when you’re choosing window treatments for windows that are close together?
One Shade for Multiple Windows — Blending with the Wall
If you have what looks like a wall of windows and want a simple solution for covering them all, you can order shades long enough for the entire span of windows. When you do, you can choose one of two courses of action: You can order a shade that blends in with the wall or you can go for contrast.
While there are pros and cons to both approaches, make sure you invest in quality shade material and hardware to support the length of the window treatment.
Wood Shutters — Add Curtains on the Sides
Wood shutters are a beautiful addition to any room, but they are especially gorgeous when fitted to groups of windows. They are a common choice for bay windows as well, given that it’s easy to add curtains on either side as an accent.
Motorized Blinds — Get Control Over Each Window
When you want to be able to filter light and control privacy for each window, motorized blinds are a great choice. You don’t have to lift a finger — you can simply press a button and each shade moves based on your preferences. A motorized setup makes it so you don’t have to manually adjust five windows in a row!
Inside Mounts — Reduce the Risk of Overlap
One of the biggest annoyances when it comes to choosing window treatments for windows on top of each other is the fact that you can’t mount the covering outside the frame or else there will likely be some overlap. This can be problematic when it’s time to raise or lower them. Always choose inside mounts to eliminate this problem!
