Easy Adjustments

In life, we always look for things to be just a little easier. No matter which windows you’re covering, being able to make adjustments without hassle is the goal. Corner windows are even trickier when it comes to adjustments. Essentially, it is crucial to account for them fitting closely together as you make the adjustments!

Mounting Decisions 

When you contemplate the best way to mount, you need to know the depth of your corner windows and the building materials where the installation happens. Depending on your window coverings selection, the inside mount is possible. However, when the window is shallow, an outside mount can look stunning! It looks intentional.

Furthermore, another great option is to combine the look. Make one side completely inside the mount, including the headrail, while the other windows allow the headrail to be located above the window.
