How to treat windows on one side, RFZ already covered?


I've got a small room I'm trying to use for mixing and vocal tracking (I have a RealTraps PVB for that), which I've treated with broadband absorbers at the corners.

It's got two windows with blinds on the right wall only.

I've already covered the window in the mix position with a broadband absorber to create a reflection free zone (with another on the opposite wall with no windows).

But since it's a small room (11' x 10') I'm trying to decide what if anything I should do with the rest of the exposed part of the two windows.

I could cover them with drapes, a packing blanket, a painted wood panel etc.

I've heard conflicting opinions that if I cover this with drapes for example, I need the opposite wall to then have drapes or a similar material to not skew the frequencies.

Any advice for how this impacts my room, and what I might do with it would be appreciated!

Below is a photo of the windows in the room.

Thank you!
