Covering Small Windows In Your Denver Home09/11/2018Gary Harding The big, luxurious window treatments you see on design shows or in the pages ofBetter Home & Garden are breathtaking, but those kind of windows aren’t in every home. Homeowners in Denver are usually more concerned with smaller windows – the type that oversized, flowing drapes won’t work for. For small windows, these are Sunburst’s recommendations for the best Denver window treatments. Plantation Shutters for Small Windows Denver plantation shutters work wonders for small windows. Some may think we’re biased because “shutters” is in our name, but they really are a fantastic for smaller windows. And there are a number of reasons why. Take a look! Shutters Fit Smaller Windows No Matter the Size Interior shutters are custom-built to your specific windows. That means that no matter the size or shape of the windows in your home, shutters will fit – without exception. Small windows come in a number of styles: casements, eyebrow, porthole windows, octagonal windows, and so on. Custom plantation shutters fit any and all of them, even the shapes that other window coverings can’t. Shutters Make Small Windows Look Larger Some Denver homeowners don’t like that their windows are on the smaller side. That’s ok, but you don’t have to put up with a window you don’t like. Plantation shutters can add up to a few inches to a window with the right frame and mount. Obviously, this won’t really affect the size of the window, but it makes the window look bigger than it is. Shutters Help Manage Light in Small Windows With small windows, light is often all or nothing. Either you’re covering the window, or you aren’t. That’s what you get with most window coverings including as drapes or curtains. But plantation shutters give you a little more flexibility with your lighting, especially when you’re talking about cafe shutters for small windows. Custom Shades for Small Windows The big thing with shades for smaller windows is to go with custom shades. The majority of smaller windows aren’t standard sizes, so the majority of shades you get at the store will just cover up your window instead of framing it. So make sure you have precise measurements of your windows and look at custom shades that accent your small window and the space around it. Shades can make smaller windows look a little more boxy and draw attention to their small size, so be careful about making the right call for your home. Combining Window Treatments for Small Windows What we’ve seen some smart Denver homeowners do for their smaller windows is to combine window treatments to make them more interesting and bigger. In fact, it doesn’t even have to be your small windows you do this with. Combine a window treatment that sits on the frame like blinds, and hang curtains to either side to buffer the window. This helps your space look a little bigger, and lets eyes flow across your room more smoothly. Small Windows Giving You Big Headaches? Don’t fret over small windows anymore, Denver.
