Every April and October for a week, High Point Market is the event to attend. Design professionals make their pilgrimage to High Point, North Carolina to see what's new and what's next in home decor and furniture design. This fall I made my way to what I call...
This room is so beautiful that I had to include it. As the title promises, we’ll l cover 3 ways to hang draperies on angled windows. In the picture above I love the way the interior designer followed the angle of the ceiling. And I especially love how the window treatment is “outside of the box,” giving the room a designer touch.
Follow The Angle
Hanging draperies as high as possible looks best and it is especially true with angled windows. One rule of thumb is to have all drapery panels in a room at the same height. It is generally more pleasing. If an angled window is also on an angled wall, I like to follow that line like interior designer Jennifer Scully did here. Of course, that is breaking the rule above. But by using the same fabric, Jennifer makes it work beautifully here.
This soft treatment hits the right mood in a teen room. Easily changed out in the future, sheers are great when you follow the lines of an angled window. They don’t look too heavy in what is already an awkward window.
Think Outside of The Box
Of the 3 ways to cover angled windows, this is by far the most popular. Working with a square window is a lot easier than trying to get fabric to drape on an angle. But that doesn’t mean that those window treatments have to be boring. Look at how elegant these treatments look.
I love the way this tight area around the fireplace becomes a cozy space with the right decor. The draperies play a large part. This one of the 3 ways to cover angled windows is dictated by the lack of space on the side of the angled windows. And safety is a large factor with a fireplace. Keep fabrics at least ten inches away from the hearth.
Hang on Medallions
Medallions for hardware instead of drapery rod is a smartest way of the 3 ways to cover angled windows. Make sure that the drape is long enough to reach the desired length, but not too long, You don’t want excess fabric puddling on the floor. Custom is a good idea with this drapery treatment.
Whether you use medallions above or below the angled windows, you will get a designer look if done properly.
