Exterior Doors

If your exterior doors are paned, consider adorning them with a single drapery panel on the hinged side. When you want more privacy, simply pull the panel completely across. If the one-sided look doesn't fit your space, however, simply hang another panel on the other side, leaving room for the door to open and close without restriction.

Window Seat

For an extra-cozy and stylish look, flank recessed bench windows with a designer combo of woven shades and short-length curtain panels.

Wall of Windows

If your sunroom or other living space is lined with walls of large windows, consider installing small groupings of high-hung drapery panels at intervals around the room. Close them for privacy and light control or keep them open for uninterrupted views.

Casement Windows

Roman shades mounted on the outside of the frame are a great choice for windows that swing out, like the shallow casement windows in this sun-filled master bathroom. Don't love the look of shades? Drapery panels hung high and wide are also a good fit.
