Easy Adjustments are a Must

One excellent solution is to opt for automated window shades, which are popular for their convenience and ability to protect your coverings from daily wear and tear.

Inside or Outside Mount?

Determining whether to use an inside mount or an outside mount depends on the depth of your corner windows. If there is enough space, an inside mount is a definite option.

However, if the window is too shallow, an outside mount can be equally impressive, almost appearing as if it’s intentionally built into the house.

Additionally, you can combine both options by choosing an inside mount for one side, including the headrail, while allowing the headrail to be located around the other windows.
