Good Questions

Q: My friend has a large window in her living room, which is slightly bumped out. In addition, baseboard heaters and a very large soffit run the full length of the wall. She has chosen to have stationary panels plus functional sheers. The panels will be mounted outside the window, in front of the soffit, to make the window seem larger and the room feel taller. Where do we hang the sheers? Where the current shades are, or up at the ceiling in front of the soffit like the panels?
