How can we decorate ugly short windows?

I am searching for ideas to enhance our ranch home’s plain, squat windows. We have hung wood blinds for privacy, sun protection and overall cohesiveness.

Now we would like to soften and warm the look in each room. There are unlimited examples of beautiful floor to ceiling window treatments but these stubby windows are not addressed. Help

I really do not like long drapes on short windows. We have traditional furniture….browns and creams.

Hi Mary

Why not simply fit decorative rods over each window and drape a scarf swag over the rod. This will give you some fabric to soften the window without having working curtains.

The beauty of this idea is that it does not cost a huge amount and you can change your fabrics with very little effort.

Best Regards
