Very wide windows. Curtains or Blinds?


I have 3 of these wide windows. One in each room. I don't know whether to use blinds or curtains. I do not want to spend a lot on custom blinds or shutters. What do you recommend would look better?.

i'd go with curtains. blinds get dirty and are a real pita to clean, if you can at all without destroying them.
if you're a guy, go with straight white or beige, and then paint that room! lol

LOL, yes nevermind the color. Although my 3 year old loves this bright pink color, I do plan to paint it soon.

Go for white lacy or light floral prints in silk, sheer curtains till the floor. It would look awesome with those windows.

Floral prints is not my style. I prefer solid colors. Have in mind that this wall paint will be gone soon. I like earthy colors.

What are your thoughts about how long you want your window treatments?? Will you be having them custom made or purchasing ready made? I just need some more information as to what you have in mind before I start spouting ideas.

OOOPS----Just realized that this post is from 2009---to late to make suggestions now!!!!!!!!!!

Please read date of posts, lol, I have tried and tried to answer questions when the poster has probably already SOLD the house, lol!!!!!.

It was likely a little girl's room.
They tend to be pink a lot.
If not a kid's room, it's a really poor color choice for any other room IMHO.
