Windows, much like homes, vary in size and shape. At the drape, we understand the importance of outfitting every window with style, offering a range of styles and fabrics to complement your decor. Embrace the diversity of your windows, whether they are small, odd-sized, or unique in measurements. In this blog post, we'll explore creative curtain solutions for small spaces, focusing on kitchens, bathrooms, sidelights, and windows flush to the wall.
Small Kitchen Windows:
Small kitchen windows, often found above sinks, present a design challenge that can be effortlessly addressed with the right curtains. Consider these two solutions:
Valance: Opt for a straight valance with grommets to maintain a modern look. Select a solid fabric that complements your kitchen's color palette or adds a pop of accent color. Match the grommet finish with other metal finishes in the space.
Café Curtain: Ideal for privacy, a café curtain covers the lower half of the window. Both grommet and rod pocket styles work well, with the material and color aligning with the kitchen's color story.
Sidelight windows, narrow and available in various heights, often pose a challenge due to standard curtain lengths. Overcome this by selecting a sheer curtain material that provides privacy while allowing light in. Two hanging options include using a top rod or employing both top and bottom rods to reduce curtain movement.
Small Bathroom Windows:
Small kitchen windows, often found above sinks, present a design challenge that can be effortlessly addressed with the right curtains.
For a softer touch, a sheer fabric with a rod pocket can create a shirred fullness, mounted using a short tension rod for added convenience.
Grommets allow for ease of opening and closing curtains to regulate light and privacy. Match the grommet finish to other metal accents in the bathroom.
