Covering Small Windows In St. George Homes09/11/2018Kasey Udy The big, luxurious window coverings you see in fancy HGTV homes or in the pages ofBetter Home & Garden are breathtaking, but not every home has those kind of windows. Homeowners in St. George are usually more concerned with smaller windows – the kind that big, luxurious drapes aren’t suited to. If you’re worried about your small windows, here are our team’s picks for the best St. George window treatments. Plantation Shutters for Small Windows St. George plantation shutters work wonders for small windows. Some might think we’re biased because “shutters” is in our name, but shutters actually are perfect for smaller windows. And there’s more than a few reasons why. Take a look! Shutters Can Fit Smaller Windows No Matter the Size Plantation shutters are custom-built to your specific windows. So whatever size or shape the windows are, shutters will fit – no exceptions. Small windows are in every style: casement windows, eyebrow, rounded, octagonal windows, and so on. Customized shutters can fit any one of them, even the shapes that other window coverings can’t. Shutters Make Small Windows Look Bigger Some St. George residents don’t like the fact that their small windows are, well, small. We get it, but nothing’s forcing you to tolerate a window you don’t like. Custom shutters can add size to a small window, sometimes up to multiple inches with the right frame and mount. Of course, shutters won’t really affect the size of the window, but it makes the window look bigger than it is. Shutters Let You Manage Light in Small Windows With small windows, light is often an all-or-nothing issue. Either you’re totally covering your window, or it’s bare. That’s the deal with most window treatments such as shades or curtains. But plantation shutters give you a bit more flexibility with your lighting, especially with cafe shutters for small windows. Custom Shades for Small Windows The most important thing with shades for smaller windows is to look for custom shades. Most smaller windows don’t have a standard size, so the majority of shades you get at the store will completely cover a window rather than framing it. So make sure you have the exact measurements of your windows and look at custom shades that accent your small window and the surrounding area. Shades can make smaller windows seem a tad more boxy and draw attention to their small size, so use caution when choosing window treatments for your space. Combining Window Treatments for Small Windows What we’ve seen some forward-thinking St. George homeowners do for small windows is to use more than one kind of window treatment. In fact, you can do this on any window in your home to the same effect. Combine a window treatment that sticks to the frame like blinds, and hang curtains on the sides to buffer the window. Combining coverings helps your space look a little bigger, and lets eyes flow across your room more smoothly. Are Your Small Windows Giving You Big Problems?
