We have been designing a lot of 2 Story Window treatments lately. They make such a statement in a room just because of their size. Adding fabric to the wall in a grand scale helps to “humanize” the windows, visually bringing the top windows into the room and giving it a cohesiveness it may lack otherwise. Over the next several weeks, I will share several photos of window treatment designs we have used in the greater Cincinnati area.
The photos today show the before and after of a challenging job. I think you can see how the fabric treatments take away the empty feeling the room had. These windows face west and the homeowners had a terrible sun issue in the afternoon. Hunter Douglas Country Woods 2″ blinds were selected for all the 2 story window treatments, with the top windows using the battery powered motorized PowerTilt with Platinum Technology remote control tilt system. The top windows are arched, so we used standard rectangular blinds and covered the top with an arched cornice – a great little trick to know.
A new paint color in the room, selected specifically to match the fabrics, ties it all together. The clients love their new look and the light control they now have.
