How Do You Cover an Unusually Shaped Window?

Spacious living room with soaring ceiling and a wall of windows that is shaped to follow the rooflineOne of the best ways to add a dash of pizzazz to your indoor and outdoor décor is to incorporate unusually shaped windows into your home’s architectural design. For example, many people take their home’s curb appeal up a notch with bay or bow windows that project outward from an exterior wall. Or they install a small triangular window to accent the gable over the garage, or a series of round or octagonal windows in a room overlooking a waterway to create a nautical look.

Unusually shaped windows stand out because of their striking contours, but there’s one thing they have in common with their more traditional counterparts: They’ll need window coverings to provide privacy and block natural light when it isn’t wanted. And the chances are that you won’t find the window treatments you need for oddly shaped windows at the big-box store—you’ll need the expertise of a custom window treatment professional.
