I am facing a design dilemma: our family room has windows on an entire wall that faces the TV, thus needs window covering in case the kids watch tv during the day. The house came with shutters but we have always hated them, because the sofa is normally against the widows (there's a 3 feet gap in the attached photo due to construction) which means the windows can never open.
We are now in the process of replacing windows, and I am rethinking the window covering. If I take away the shutters should I go with curtain? Or blinds? Both might be tricky because of the slope... Or should I keep the shutters on top but use blinds on bottom? Would that look weird?
Any advice is appreciated!
