Palladian Shelf demo
It is frustrating enough to find something that you like, let alone love, for a window in your home to control the light. All the colors, fabrics, and choices…tons to think about, tons to get right! Imagine finding the perfect solution for your windows only to find out that there is no practical place to mount the shade. More than a little disappointing. Palladian shelves offer the answer.
The palladian shelf allows you to put in a horizontal “top” to any opening letting you pick where a window opening starts and stops. This allows you to use virtually any window treatment available – however you want – to enjoy the window. Choices are great right? Any window covering professional that is pushing you to end mount a custom window treatment that isn’t a horizontal blind or a open roller screen shade is doing you and themselves a disservice.
Large gaps and unsightly hardware could be the name of the angle iron used. It looks DIY with all the negative connotations that you are trying to avoid by having the windows covered tastefully in the first place. I mean you could tape up newspaper right?
Palladian shelf should be in their tool box and should be in your home. Get the job done right.
