    Why would you want to do that to one of the most treasured items in a home? Anyway, add a middle curtain as well as the side ones so eye is tricked into thinking there is a wall there as well and it's two windows not one.

      Go a step further and use trim matching the exterior of your home's window trim on the outside to make it look like two windows and repeat on the onside to match interior trim.
  • Have your window coverings the same color as your wall. Get creative with furnitureplacement. Just curious though, why try and hide possibly one of the best features in a room?

    Hello Helen; Nice to meet you!!
    Window Shades and Curtains will work wonders. If you already have these items, What about using different colors?
    Sometimes, all that is needed is just a slight update, with something new to you. Even pillows will make the room feel different. Paint, depending on the color that you choose is also a huge factor.
    I hope that this will help you, and give you a few ideas!!! Take Care!
