Simple window treatments for basement windows
Basement windows are often a challenge to decorate because they are usually small, spaced, and high on the wall - a recipe for decorating disaster. This post provides solutions for these problem windows based on the premise that simple is best. Keeping things light and airy will not draw attention to the negatives of small size and awkward placement. All links to these spaces can be found on my Pinterest board .

Nothing works better than functional shutters in a basement. They are sleek and unobtrusive and look tidy.
|Light walls and light draperies|
Sometimes draperies work with short windows. I personally prefer that they are a similar colour to the wall, but there is a place for darker ones. Because the sofa is below these windows it helps to break up the long expanse of wall below each window.
Sometimes you can add something vertical below the space to visually fill in the awkward space.
In my next post I will discuss more complex basement window options that are sure to wow and convince visitors that they are not in a basement. And what about your house? What is your preferred window treatment for basements?
