How to Cover Small Windows In Your Denver Home

September 11, 2018

The big, luxurious window treatments you see on design shows or in the pages of Better 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 big, luxurious drapes won’t work for.

For small windows, these are our 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. For example, see why shutters are a terrific option for transom windows and other small windows.

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. We get it, but you don’t have to put up with a window you’re not a fan of. Plantation shutters can add size to a small window, even up to multiple inches 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 like as drapes or curtains. But plantation shutters give you a little more flexibility with how you control 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. Most smaller windows don’t have a standard size, so a lot of shades you get at the store will just cover up your window instead of framing it. So measure your windows precisely and look at custom shades that fit both your window and the space around it.

Shades can make smaller windows look a little more boxy and draw attention to their small size, so use caution when choosing window treatments for your windows.

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 drapes to either side to buffer the window.

Combining coverings helps your space look a little bigger, and can help smooth out the flow of your room.
