Covering Small Windows In Charlotte Homes09/11/2018Neil Blackwelder The big, fancy window coverings you see on design shows or in Better Home & Garden are swoon-worthy, but those aren’t typical for every home. Homeowners in Charlotte are usually more concerned with smaller windows – windows that oversized, flowing drapes don’t work with. When it comes to small windows, here are our picks for the best Charlotte window treatments. Custom Shutters for Small Windows Charlotte plantation shutters work wonders for small windows. Some may think we’re a little predisposed to shutters, but shutters actually are a fantastic for smaller windows. And there’s more than a few reasons why. Check them out! Shutters Can Fit Smaller Windows No Matter What Plantation shutters are built specifically for your windows. That means that whatever size or shape the windows are, shutters will fit – without exception. Smaller windows run the gamut of styles: casements, eyebrow, rounded, octagon windows, and so on. Customized shutters can fit any one of them, even the shapes that other window treatments can’t. Shutters Make Smaller Windows Look Bigger Some homeowners in Charlotte don’t like that their windows are on the smaller side. That’s ok, but you don’t have to live with a window you’re not a fan of. Interior shutters can add a number of inches to a window with the right frame and mount. Obviously, shutters won’t really affect the size of the window, but it can make it look a lot larger than it actually is. Shutters Control Light in Small Windows With smaller windows, light is an all-or-nothing issue. Either you’re covering the whole window, or you aren’t. That’s how it is with most window coverings including as drapes or curtains. But interior shutters let you have a bit more flexibility with lighting and privacy, especially when you’re talking about cafe shutters for small windows. Custom Shades for Small Windows The key with shades for smaller windows is to shop for custom shades. Most small windows aren’t standard sizes, so a lot of shades you find in stores will completely cover a window instead of framing it. So get the exact measurements of your windows and look at custom shades that fit both your window and the space around it. Shades may make small windows seem a little “boxier” and draw attention to their small size, so think a bit before using them for your space. Combining Window Treatments for Small Windows What we’ve seen some savvy Charlotte homeowners choose for their smaller windows is to combine window treatments. In fact, you can do this on just about any kind of window, big or small. Combine a window treatment that sits on the frame like blinds, and hang curtains on the sides to frame the window. This makes better use of the space, and makes the flow of your room more smooth. Are Your Small Windows Causing Big Headaches? Don’t worry about your small windows anymore, Charlotte.
