All kinds of window covering dos, don'ts, and opinions

I have developed some pretty strong opinions about window coverings in my years experimenting at our first house, and my months of doing all of the Stanley 90's Reno. And I am already thinking about them for the FSBO house we're trying to buy next!


I love digging into this kind of stuff! I like to scroll through my pins to compare specifics like curtain rod colors, blind hanging methods, curtain heights, and more when decorating a room.

How do you choose the right window treatment for a space? What type of curtains, blinds, etc. work best in a living room, kitchen, or bathroom? How do you position and hang window curtains? We cover these and more questions in the latest episode of the Your Home Story podcast!

In this episode, Ashley also mentions the great pinch pleat tutorial that she came across, how she cut her own bamboo blinds to save money, and her $10 fencing-to-bamboo shades hack.

I shared my DIY curtain in her kitchen and her insulated window blind tutorial--from waaaaay back in the archives. (Tune in to hear what I'd do differently now!) Here’s my post about her favorite custom bamboo blinds.
