Window Treatment for 3 Windows in a Row: 10 Ideas

Table of Contents

A room full of beautiful windows can provide amazing vistas and wonderful sunlight. However, many people have trouble finding window treatments for 3 windows in a row. Keep reading to discover ten tips that Beyond Shades, Chicago’s custom window treatment experts, know can help you find the best window treatments.

1. Treat as Together or Separate

If only one or two inches separate each window, treat them as a single unit and use extra wide draperies or valences to draw focus to them. With windows farther apart, treat each window as an individual unit.

2. Know Your Options

Many people find the following options the best fit for their row of three windows:

  • Curtains: Hang curtains to frame the windows and create a focal point. They pair well with every other window treatment.
  • Shades: The soft fabric and shades provide warmth and texture in the room.
  • Blinds: The slats in blinds allow for nuanced control over natural light and come in various affordable materials.
    Automation: You can motorize any window treatment for increased convenience and complete control over how much light you let in.

3. Use Valences

Valences are thin strips of decorative fabric running along the windows’ top. They provide little function but are perfect for adding style to any window.

4. Incorporate Doors

Is there a door in the room? Use the same color and pattern scheme to tie both features together. If the door has a window, hang the same curtains. Otherwise, use window treatments that accentuate the natural color of the door. 

5. Don't Forget Color

Every design motif needs an accent color. While many people prefer cushions or an accent wall, curtains break up large chunks of color and provide the perfect balance.

6. Consider Privacy

One major challenge in finding window treatments for three windows in a row is the privacy consideration. White window shades hung high offer privacy while drawn, but feel nearly invisible when you retract them.

7. Utilize Patterns

Patterns are a crucial element for any design theme. They work particularly well in kitchen windows, where they break up large blocks of color from the counters, cabinets, and flooring.

8. Personalize Your Treatments

Customizing your window treatments is the most effective tip for managing multiple windows. A designer measures your windows, analyzes your style, and creates personalized window treatments that fit perfectly and enhance the decor in your home.

9. Account for Corners

You’ll find it difficult to choose window treatments when your three windows round a corner. Treat each window as a separate unit and tie them together with similar valences.

10. Determine Light Control

How much light control do you need? You’ll want more nuanced control in your living room than in the bathroom.
