Ripple Fold Drapery — Jeffrey Alan Marks Netscape, Cloud
From maximizing the light in darker, more compact spaces, to making unconventional window sizes work with your design, there’s a lot to consider when choosing curtains for small basement windows. While basement curtains are an option — they are only one of many. Discover the perfect window treatments for your space with these tips from our experts at The Shade Store.
Window Treatments to Maximize Your Windows
Cubicle Drapery — Sheer Wool Blend, Grey Owl
Basements are notorious for small, unconventional windows — with less than spectacular placement when it comes to design. But that doesn’t mean you can’t make the most of them.
Roman Shades offer a variety of style solutions to custom fit any window. From the refined look of Cascade Roman Shades to the traditional styling of Relaxed Roman Shades, these completely custom treatments fit seamlessly inside the window frame to maximize coverage and style, simultaneously.
To make your small windows appear larger, becoming more of a focal point to your space, Custom Drapery is the perfect solution. From Ripple Fold Drapery to Tailored Pleat Drapery to Rod Pocket Drapery available in hundreds of materials, endlessly versatile curtains can help elongate a small window, in any style that suits your decor.
Window Treatments to Maintain Privacy
Cellular Shades — 3/8″ Double Cell Light Filtering
If function is more important than style for your basement, custom window treatments that maintain privacy are key.
Cellular Shades offer a modern, streamlined look while offering total privacy—and improving insulation and temperature control, which can be tricky in damp, old basements.
Blackout Roller Shades offer total darkness, added UV protection, and increased energy efficiency, making them perfect for small crawl spaces, or places where keeping your belongings safely stored is essential.
Design Tips for Adding Style to Small Spaces

Regardless of which basement window treatments you choose, don’t shy away from letting your personal sense of style shine through—even in your home’s smallest spaces. To add a pop of personality, choose a material with color and pattern, or even finish your custom window treatments with a unique trim or border to give the look a little something extra.
