Decorating Specialty Windows

Window treatments are a necessary part of the decorating process. They can tie a room together, add privacy, and help to reduce energy costs. However, most people don't realize that there are specialty windows that require different treatment options than regular-sized windows do. Here is some information on how to decorate your specialty windows:

Sliding glass doors with beautiful window treatments

Bay Window Blinds

If you have a bay window in your home, you know the challenge of finding blinds that will fit it properly. Bay windows can be tricky to cover because they are angled and often have three or more sides.

Luckily, there are several ways to solve this problem. You can opt for a specialty window treatment like an accordion pleat specifically made for bays. These blinds allow you to adjust them on each side separately, so they fit perfectly in any size of bay window without needing to be cut down or hemmed out of shape!

Bay windows also come in various materials, including vinyl, wood, aluminum, and faux wood. Each material has its benefits; for example, vinyl is affordable but doesn't look as good as real oak blinds (which require proper maintenance) but offers many colors/pattern options.

This also enhances bay windows' ability to bring natural light into rooms at different times during the day.

Window Treatments for Big Windows

If you have big windows and are looking for window treatments, look no further! Blinds are a great way to decorate big windows. They come in many different sizes, styles, and colors so that you can find the perfect ones for your home. Shades are also an excellent option if you're looking for something that offers shade but allows natural light into your room. Window treatments for big windows are another perfect choice if they work with your décor!

Decorating Sliding Glass Doors

Sliding glass doors are a great way to let in natural light, but decorating them can be a hassle. With proper window treatments, you can maintain the light control and privacy you need while introducing the decorative elements you love. We have blind, shade, or shutter options to cover the window, or you can frame it with something like a valance or cornice. A decorative curtain rod is an excellent choice if you want to keep things simple and modern. These rods come in all shapes, sizes, and colors to match your existing interior design style.

If you're looking for an easy way to update any room in your home without spending too much time fussing around with colors and patterns, consider giving these types of sashes a try - even if it means just buying some new hardware instead!

Buying a home with a specialty window can be a double-edged sword. On the one hand, they generally add beauty and gorgeous views to your home; on the other, they can be a hassle if you don't have any experience decorating these.
