While people moving into condominiums and apartments may not think they have the same amount of creative and decorative freedom, they may want to reconsider. Those living in smaller spaces may have an opportunity to take advantage of dramatic and interesting window treatments.

"Condos typically have smaller floor space but larger windows than houses, and therefore there is increased emphasis on implementing higher end, more distinctive window treatments as both a functional and decorative element," window treatment expert Chantal Lemaire told the Ottawa Citizen.
