Window Treatments for Small Windows In Your Atlanta Home09/11/2018Dan Taylor The big, stately window treatments you see on design shows or in home magazines can make you swoon, but those aren’t typical for every home. More often Atlanta homeowners are concerned with smaller windows – the type that those big bold drapes aren’t suited to. When it comes to small windows, here are our picks for the best Atlanta window treatments. Custom Shutters for Small Windows Atlanta plantation shutters work wonders for small windows. Some might think we’re biased because “shutters” is in our name, but shutters actually are a fantastic for small windows. And there are more than a few reasons why. Check them out! Shutters Fit Smaller Windows No Matter What Interior shutters are built specifically for your windows. So whatever size or shape the windows are, shutters will fit – without exception. Smaller windows run the gamut of styles: casement windows, transom windows, circular, octagonal windows, and so on. Custom plantation shutters can fit any one of them, even the ones that other window treatments can’t. Shutters Can Make Smaller Windows Look Larger Some Atlanta homeowners don’t like that their windows are on the smaller side. That’s understandable, but you don’t have to live with a window you don’t like. Interior shutters can add size to a small window, sometimes up to multiple inches with the right frame and mount. Of course, this won’t actually make the window bigger, but it makes the window look bigger than it is. Shutters Help Manage Light in Small Windows For small windows, light is often all or nothing. Either you’re covering the whole window, or you aren’t. That’s how it is with most window treatments like as shades or curtains. But interior shutters give you a little more flexibility with lighting and privacy, especially when you factor in styles like cafe shutters for small windows. Custom Shades for Small Windows The most important thing with small window shades is to shop for custom shades. The majority of small windows are in unusual sizes, so a lot of store-bought shades will just cover up your window rather than framing it. So get the exact measurements of your windows and look at custom shades that play to your window and your space’s strengths. Shades might make small windows seem a tad 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 Atlanta homeowners choose for small windows is to use more than one kind of window treatment. 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 or shutters, and hang curtains or drapes on the sides to frame the window. This uses the space better, and lets eyes flow across your room more smoothly. Small Windows Giving You Big Headaches? Don’t worry about your small windows anymore, Atlanta. Sunburst wants to help.
