Good Questions: How do I curtain angled widows?

Hello AT:SF!

A question from across the Bay.. how do I install curtains for windows that are slanted like ours??? I've included a picture of the windows, and then a more recent picture of our furnished apartment. Just ignore the two girls in the foreground. =)

Thanks!
Cecelia

Nice view Cecelia!

It's hard to say without visiting your space, but you may be able to get away with covering just the lower part of the slanted windows, for privacy, and leaving the higher, angled windows nekkid, to allow in the light and the view.

If you do want to go ahead and curtain everything, you'll want to use fabric with some texture (for traction), because light, slippery fabrics will perpetually slide down an angled rod. And you'll have to purchase curtains (or curtain fabric) that are as long as the tallest window. Ikea's a great place for you: their curtains come standard at 118", perhaps because they tend to be tall in Sweden!

This may sound obvious, but the trick will be to accurately measure, cut and hem on the angle to match up with the bottoms your sills.

Anyone else?
