Cecelia has a good question: ATSF, I need help! I would love to install roller shades (both a transparent one for the day and a blackout one for night) on these windows but cannot afford $1800 on window treatments. Curtains of course would be the cheapest alternative, but I'm worried about the bulkiness making my 400 sq. ft studio seem even smaller! What does everyone recommend? I'm looking for something that can block light completely at night, but also lets in light during the day to give my space a light, airy feeling...

In addition, these windows are tricky. There is a slanted window on the left, a large center window, and a small perpendicular window to the right.

Note: The photo (above) isn't Cecelia's unit, but she sent it in to give an idea of what the windows look like.

Please share your ideas and suggestions with Cecelia in the comments below....thanks!
