Since we have a high headboard we opted not to put it in front of the windows and effectively block them, but if we put the bed on awkward window wall we ran into a similar problem of the bed blocking half the window. We could have removed the bedside table on the left and pushed the bed all the way to the left wall, but I have a serious problem with my master bedroom looking like a dorm room. I always prefer the bed to float against a wall.
Our solution was to hang curtains along the whole back wall which now masks the window entirely. I love the soft feel it lends to the room as well.
