Draperies for windows with architraves
We are approaching the end of a long renovation that turned into a near-total reconstruction. In rebuilding the house, we recreated a lot of the lost detail and even added more. One of the things we decided to do was to add architraves above nearly all of the doors and windows, as seen here:
One thing we are struggling with is how to dress these windows...
If draperies are fitted into the window frame, we will not be able to push them all the way to the side and will be depriving ourselves of some beautiful natural light.
We are also not keen to mount rods to the woodwork if that is not how it is usually done (but would like to know if that's how it generally goes...)
We are thinking it may be best to mount the rods outside of the woodwork but are at a loss as to whether the architrave remains exposed or if the rod gets mounted level with its to or above it,
How have you tackled this issue? Pictures would be of great help. Thank you so much!
