How to Decorate Odd-Shaped Windows

Updated February 21, 2017

Not all windows are rectangular. Hexagonal or trapezoid windows are just a few odd-shaped windows that can be difficult to decorate. While conventional drapes and coverings may not work, window clings are an elegant way to give you the privacy you need on your odd shaped window, while still letting in ample light. Window clings are available in many different styles to suit any home decor, and look like elegant etched glass for your odd shaped windows.

Purchase window clings to suit your window. They generally come in a square shape, so order enough to cover your window.

Measure your window's dimension and cut the window cling to the exact dimensions and shape.

Clean the window and let dry for an optimal surface for the cling to stick to.

Working slowly, peel the backing off of the window cling and lay it carefully in front of you.

Place the window cling on your window, and working from the center to the edges, smooth with your hands to adhere.

With a spatula, firmly smooth the window cling down to remove any bubbles.
