Finding the right drapes for your oddly shaped windows

In order to bring more variety to the styles of house that they work with, many architects are choosing to leave the traditional square window behind in favor of a more interesting appearance. Arch-shapes, round or even octagonal windows have become a part of some of the houses around Milwaukee. These allow natural light to flow in from unconventional shapes, making the entire house glow just a little bit differently than it would otherwise. 

While this is certainly wonderful for creating an unforgettable look for your house, stock window treatments simply aren't designed for these unusually shaped windows. Often, it can be hard to know what to do in a situation like this, since you might not want to spend so much money, but you'll certainly want to have the ability to dress and cover these windows. Luckily, the experts at Bazaar Home Decorating can help you to get your  unique window looking good. You have a few options:

1. Custom drapery – Hand-cut drapes can be done to your exact specifications. Stop into our Milwaukee fabric store to find out about how window fashions from trusted brands like Hunter Douglas can be made to fit just about any shaped window.
