To start, take a look at some essential details you should be aware of.

Measurements Matter!

It is evident that corner windows don’t provide a lot of space to work with. Therefore, the measurements you take are crucial to making sure that everything fits together effortlessly. Now, the amount of space that you have in your corners will help you decide what type of coverings work best.

How the window is framed is also helpful when it comes to intricate details such as the way the window shades hide framing or highlight it.

Inside Mount or Outside Mount?

The depth of your corner windows matters. Depending on the window coverings you choose, an inside mount is a definite possibility!

However, when the window is too shallow, you may want to consider an outside mount. The great news is that it can look equally amazing! This is because it looks almost as if it’s built into the house intentionally.

Another excellent option is to combine both! You can do this by making one side completely an inside mount, including the headrail, while all of your other windows allow the headrail to be located about the windows.
