So you’re not graced with a large bay
window. Yes, you can still take advantage
of sunshine. For a fresh, open look that maximizes light, hang the curtains “proud”
–or wide–of the actual frame by extending
the rod anywhere from 10” to 18” on each
side. This way, when you push back the curtains, you can see the whole window. If
you don’t have enough space on either side
of your window, just calculate less fabric.
