If you have beautiful molding around your window, it is understandable that you don’t want to cover it up. There are several window treatment options to cover and enhance the look of your windows.
Hanging the window treatments above your window will allow to to see the top and the bottom of your window and the molding around it. Hanging your treatments higher also makes your room look larger. Keep in mind the projection of the molding, that is, how far out from the wall does the molding protrude? You will need to purchase hardware brackets that have a projection that will clear the molding. You will also want your custom drapes to have a return about 1/2″ longer than the bracket projection.
Hanging drapery about an inch into the glass will create the illusion that your windows are wider than they are. Skinny windows suddenly become larger because you won’t see where the window begins.
Valances and cornice boards can make short windows appear longer. DrapeStyle can create matching custom valances in any of our 500 fabrics.
If you don’t want to cover up any of your molding, you may want to consider having Roman shades made. This will draw the attention to your windows and put the emphasis on your molding. Try selecting a contrasting color for your shades to really make your molding pop!
Measuring guides are available online, but if you’re still not sure about which option is best for your home, or need a little help determining sizes, please contact us and speak to one of our designers for more information.
