How many of you have a pesky window that seems to have no solution for how to decorate it, block the light, add privacy, etc? Is the window too tall? Does it have an odd shape? Hard to reach? We get calls from frustrated homeowners needing help with these same issues. Here are some of the solutions to consider... Bathtub Window So, why do builders always put a big window over the bathtub?! Often, it has a view of the neighbors' house or the road. How do you have privacy, but avoid losing the light or have to crawl in and out of the tub to open and close the window covering?  How about a shade that comes down from the top and up from the bottom. You can leave the top down enough to let in light, but still have privacy. You wouldn't have to move it everyday.

Doors  Isn't it frustrating to have a door that needs a valance to match the other windows in the room, but if you put it at the same height as the window valances, you won't be able to use the door! You could put a tiny valance on the face of the door in the same fabric, but it seems so small and disconnected from the other valances. What do you do!? We have found the best solution is an Operable Door Valance. This way the door valance looks just like the others in the room, but you can still use the door...
