Hello AT,

I am not a fan of window treatments at all.

In fact, the very words 'window treatment' rub me wrong.

However, I recognize a need for something to be put up in our new apartment as we face onto a brightly lit park and I like the room to be pretty dark when I sleep (though we're not talking blackout curtains or tinfoil extremes)...

(Note: Include a pic of your problem and your question gets posted first.)

The difficulty I am having is how to work with the type of windows we have, ones that open up into the room, like opening a cabinet door (see pic).

The other area to navigate is the recessed windowed nook with the hvac unit.

Would you recommend a curved track mounted on the ceiling with one big curtain?

Would it be to the floor or just at the window ledge?

Any ideas or advice or good stores or sites you can recommend would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks! Anne
