Now These are Some Difficult Windows!

Posted by aktillery (My Page) on

I have just moved into yet another rental and have a wall of windows in a triangular shape. I am a fan of straight clean lines and am stumped with this. I have to cover them with something bc the light pouring in is blinding. I do have a nice view of the lake and some hills, so I would not want to cover it.

I have had some ideas but am still not sure. Since it is a rental, I do not want to spend an arm and a leg.

I am sure you guys will have some wonderful suggestions!

Thanks in advance!

I would try some cling film on the uppers and get some inexpensive Target panels for the lower windows.

Great view! I solved my problem windows by replacing them with new super duper uv coated windows. It really makes a huge difference. Maybe you can drop some hints to your landlord.

I don't have any suggestions. I just wanted to commiserate with both of you on the lousy views you have from those windows. ;o)

I would love to have that many windows and that view! I would probably get long panels so I could open and close as I choose and depending on the light coming in each day.

YES! Love the views and the wonderful windows! Jeannie... I am considering some long panels so I can close them when the light glares through and I want to cozy up or just see without seeing spots for that matter.
