I'm wondering what to do with my front bay and bedroom windows - as in, what to cover them with.
I want something that doesn't cut out too much light, but also doesn't let people peer in. But on the other hand, lets me see out
I had translucent blinds before, from Ikea, but they got very dirty (I'm not sure if they were cleanable, but if so I didn't
I don't like plantation blinds as I think they make the house look like a prison from the outside, however I wonder if they would be a practical option. Can you see out of them from the inside? Do they cut out much light?
I've discounted curtains on the grounds that there isn't enough space between the window and the wall to pull them back without covering up some of the window, and anyway you can't have curtains drawn all the time.
Vaguely wondering about some kind of light muslin, or net or lace curtains. I once had cream Liberty lace panels, but somebody bleached them thinking they were white and discoloured, and they fall apart
I would probably want white, as the floor and walls are white.
Does anybody have any ideas? Anything you have done and regretted it?
Also, can anybody recommend a local person who you have used yourself to advise and fit them (whatever they are)?
