A little extra fabric can go a L-O-N-G W-A-Y…
In this case, purchasing two extra curtain panels for a large window can create the illusion of a spacious and wide room without all the demo and mess of knocking down a wall 🙂
I used this design trick while decorating Mrs. Z’s Home, specifically in her Living Room and Dining Room. For her rooms, I purchased a total of ten panels and ten sheers for only three windows between the Living Room and Dining Room combine.
The main windows in Mrs. Z’s living room and dining room are HUGE, just like Mrs. C’s living room window). Since the windows are a huge size, by using 4 panels on one window, I am breaking the one huge window into one large window and two medium size windows.
If only I had windows such as this in my home, I could do this in our home… I’m going to have to add the instillation of bigger windows to my to-do list… I’m completely joking, my husband would be a little PO’ed with that project, hehe!
