Window treatment with corner blocks?

Posted by nancita (My Page) on

Hi all,
We're finally ready for curtains or shades or something. When we remodeled the second floor, we had wide window trim with corner blocks. Curtains wold cover them up. I thought of fabric shades and loved the ones that used to be made with a cord/loop. No longer being made because of a choking hazard.
Any ideas on what I might use?
Thank you.

RE: Window treatment with corner blocks?

Any window treatment with an inside mount will work....roman shade, hobbled roman shade, austrian shade, balloon shade, duette honeycomb shade, woven wood blind, roller shade which you can either trim or cover with fabric or valances. You can do venetian blinds or shutters or you can even mount drapery panels on the inside that reach the sill and tie back to one or both sides.

RE: Window treatment with corner blocks?

You always have such great information. I am wondering how a valance would work. Those corner blocks that DH is so fond of would be hidden, no?
Thank you.

Not if you mount it inside....inside mount leaves the woodwork showing.

I'm not sure where this photo originated, but I had it saved in my 'inspiration' file. Same idea as Annie has shown above.
