It can be hard to find a window treatment that can adequately cover your windows when they don’t measure to a standard size. You might be able to hide those rows of small, square windows behind a large drape, but then both the windows and drape look awkward when the treatment is open.

They may block out some light and provide a modicum of privacy, but they usually need to be replaced every few years due to cracking, chipping, yellowing, or warping. Basically, they’ll cover your windows, but not well.
