Basement windows are often a challenge to decorate because they are usually small, spaced, and high on the wall – a recipe for decorating disaster. This post provides solutions for these problem windows based on the premise that simple is best. Keeping things light and airy will not draw attention to the negatives of small size and awkward placement. All links to these spaces can be found on my Pinterest board .

One of my favourite looks for a basement space is to keep everything light and add darks in art or accessories. White faux wood blinds are very functional because they let light in and provide some privacy in the daytime. In this room the floor acts as a great foil for all the lightness and the hits of dark in art and furniture break up the space.

Sometimes draperies work with short windows. I personally prefer that they are a similar colour to the wall, but there is a place for darker ones. Because the sofa is below these windows it helps to break up the long expanse of wall below each window.
Sometimes you can add something vertical below the space to visually fill in the awkward space.
