Young and Fun: Home Makeover
Window Treatment What We Did: Adding crown molding polished things off, and hanging the drapes high and wide around our big picture window framed the view without blocking the light. DIY Tip: Hang your curtain rods well above the top of your window -- about 3 inches below your ceiling or crown molding. By hanging bamboo blinds right under the rod, you can create the illusion that the widow is much taller, thereby adding height and drama to any space.
How To Choose The Right Curtains, Blinds...
Fit A Wide Window With Blinds - use two bamboo blinds hung next to each other to create the look of one for about a tenth of the price of a long custom blind! Pictured ~ actually just two super cheap bamboo blinds snagged at Walmart and hung right next to each other (thanks to the textured bamboo material, no one’s the wiser).
Let There Be (More) Light
Great tip! They mounted the blinds higher on the window. Then used a little board between to make the middle trim appear to go all the way up and therefore the window looks taller. When totally open the whole window is open and all the light comes in. (This pic is before the little faux trim piece is added, click to see the blog) Excellent idea!
