How do you dress a corner window?

We'll be moving to a house that has a wrap-around edge on some of the windows. Most of the window is on one wall, but it also goes a little bit around the corner. I've no idea what to do about dressing them, and Pinterest (usually my go to) doesn't have much to offer on the subject.

You can buy bendable plastic curtain rails, if you're a curtain person (also I know argos DID do metal bay window rails but mebbe not anymore. What sort of thing were you thinking? For privacy/warmth like me or show it all off and be cold? Lol

I think probably curtains rather than blinds. I can't quite get my head around how they should look though. As there's a narrow side and a wide side, should the curtains meet at the corner, meaning one wide curtain and one narrow one, or should the curtains be the same size and meet half-way, which would be not quite in the centre of the wider window. Either way would be a bit lop-sided IMO.

What's the ratio of big side to small side?

Tah-dah, a picture. MN loves a visual illustration.

The corner window in the kitchen is evenly balanced, and I would use blinds in a kitchen anyway, but the living room only has a tiny bit around the corner. It will have to look good as we will only be living in that house for about 18 months and then it'll be sold.

Oops, a premature 'tah-dah' there.

We had a similar at up in our flat, we used plastic bendable rail which we anchored the left curtain (which went round the bend) so that the curtain always stayed across the bend, then the rest of the curtain sat neatly across the opening part. If this doesn't make sense I'll try and replicate it x
