How Do You Get Around Window Hardware?

I'm to the point in my renovation that I need to start thinking of window treatments. I am perplexed as to what to use because of the window hardware, specifically because the window levers and locking mechanisms stick out so far. What are people using? I can't see mini blinds or window shades being practical because they would have to stick out so far from the window to be of any good use. What are people doing, given these circumstances?

The windows on my trailer are similar.

I have metal Venetian blinds on one window and shades and curtains on the rest. In both cases the bottom hardware extends out far enough to make it work.

Doesn't that leave quite a gap between the bottom half of the window and the blind?

We put shades on, then I built valances for over the top of the windows to hide the shade tops. I added small side curtains that are held down at the bottom of the sides of the windows. They hold the shades close to the window and wall so they don't hang out. For the bedroom area, I added curtains to the small side ones (part of each curtain is free at the bottom) so if we want the windows open, we can pull the curtains instead of the shades for air.
It's in our Little Girl Refurb thread. It works for us.
Good luck!

My windows are the same. The trailer came with a roll down shade and curtains over top.

Roll down shades or Venetian blinds sized to fit between the lever arms with some fabric shades to cover the edges.

I replaced roller shades in 2005 25 ccd with homemade fabric ones using same factory hardware, brackets at top and snap grommets at bottom. The female snap side is screwed into wall. Fabric covers all levers. I also used original roller as a curtain rod. There is still a gap between shade and window( as there was with the original vinyl shades),but less than with metal mini blinds, and no more than is created by the curved walls of the trailer.

Not sure if this will work for your style of window, but this is the way to go imo.
