Hi

I've got some odd sized windows. I'm not sure what the best way of covering them up is. The other end of the room has roughly the same configuration.

I like the roman blind style, but are the smaller windows too small for that?
Would you cover the door (to a small balcony) in the same style, or put a curtain over it?
Should I be worried about how close the wee square window is to the long window - like will this proximity interfere with installing blinds?

Your opinion is very much needed and gratefully received! Thanks.

I would go for wooden blinds as they give you the most options. See http://www.blindsuk.net/wood-blinds.html You can pull them right up to give the openness that you have now or tilt the slats to give privacy but still allow light in and closed up for night time. I have the 50mm blinds in white in some rooms and they look really smart.

Get some custom blinds made. Do what we did, find a local (to you) place that makes custom blinds. Most of our windows have them now.

Working on anything electrical? have you got a multi meter? why not? Would you hit a nail with a shoe?
