Shaped windows are a challenge to cover when privacy and light control are needed. For this interior window I designed a covering that will provide privacy. This window is in a bedroom that overlooks a large living space. The view from the window looks right out to the lake.
The first step was to sketch out an idea for my client to see. I then communicated the design and prepared a detailed drawing so that the custom shape could be made.
A Hunter Douglas cordless shade covers the main portion of glass. A curtain panel was made to cover the angled portion when desired. A board mounted valance covers the shade and creates a visual lift to the window.
Since this window is visible from the interior we installed a fabric strip to cover the back of the shade.
I love a good challenge, and I'm always thrilled when it works out perfectly in reality. As always, the key is in the measuring accuracy.
