The way you dress a window can make all the difference to a small room, particularly if the window is on the weeny side too.
Opt for an extra wide curtain pole
This little window is the only source of natural light in my daughter's bedroom, so it was important to make sure that as much light as possible came in from it. Choosing a curtain pole that is quite a bit wider than the window, means that the curtains, when opened, are mostly covering the wall and not the window opening.
Tie curtains back so that they don't block the light
Whilst tie-backs can look dated in some settings now, they do have a good purpose, particularly when it comes to small windows. Be a little creative when choosing what to hold your curtains back with to create a modern twist on a classic theme.
Here, I've created tie-backs from PomPom Galore pom pom strings to hold the curtains further back from the window.
Raise blinds so that they hang above the window
Dressing this little window in our lounge was even trickier as there is very little wall space either side of it.
Whereas most blinds are placed so that they cover the top section of window, here it has been raised higher so that it covers just the top of the window frame, giving the impression that the window is taller than it is and not blocking out any light.
To maximise the flow of light into your rooms and make them feel even more spacious, position mirrors with care in relation to the windows and doors. Find our more here
