I finally got the curtains up in my master closet! The off-center window has been driving me crazy so I had to get something up — quick! There wasn’t a chance I was going to rip out the window and move it over so I had to get creative and just trick my eyes with some visual “deception”. Here’s how to use curtains to hide an off center window.
How to use curtains to hide an off center window
I installed a long curtain rod above the window that extended over into the area where I needed to pretend the window also extended. So the curtain rod is centered in this space. I hung a curtain panel on each end of the curtain rod, pulled to the ends and only leaving a small bit of window exposed. Open the curtains any wider and you see the side of the window moulding. Depending on how large your window is and how off center it is, you might be able to open your drapes wider.
Even though there’s only a little sliver window showing, my eyes are so much happier now that I’ve tricked them into thinking the window is centered!
