Window Treatments for Small Windows In Your Colorado Springs Home09/11/2018Gary Harding The big, fancy windows you see in fancy HGTV homes or in home magazines are swoon-worthy, but those kind of windows aren’t in every home. Homeowners in Colorado Springs are usually more concerned with smaller windows – windows that big, luxurious drapes won’t work for. If you’re worried about your small windows, these are Sunburst’s picks for the best Colorado Springs window treatments. Plantation Shutters for Small Windows Colorado Springs plantation shutters work wonders for small windows. You may think we’re just favoring shutters, but they actually are one of the best choices for smaller windows. And there are a number of reasons why. Take a look! Shutters Can Fit Smaller Windows No Matter the Size Plantation shutters are custom-built to your specific windows. That means that whatever size or shape the windows are, shutters will fit – no exceptions. Small windows are in every style: casements, transom windows, circular, octagonal windows, and several other styles. Custom shutters can fit any one of them, even the ones that other window treatments can’t. Shutters Make Small Windows Look Larger Some homeowners in Colorado Springs don’t like that their windows are on the smaller side. That’s ok, but you don’t have to live with a window that you don’t love. Interior shutters can add a number of inches to a window with the right frame and mount. Obviously, this won’t actually make the window bigger, but it can make it look a lot larger than it actually is. Shutters Help Manage Light in Small Windows With smaller windows, light is usually all or nothing. Either you’re covering the window, or you aren’t. That’s how it is with most window treatments including as drapes or curtains. But interior shutters offer a bit more flexibility with how you control lighting, especially when you’re talking about cafe shutters for small windows. Custom Shades for Small Windows The most important thing with small window shades is to look for custom shades. More often than not smaller windows are in unusual sizes, so most shades you find in stores will completely cover a window instead of framing it. So get precise measurements of your windows and look for custom shades that play to your window and your space’s strengths. Shades may make smaller windows seem a little “boxier” 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 smart Colorado Springs homeowners do for small windows is to combine window treatments to make them more interesting and bigger. In fact, you can do this on just about any kind of window, big or small. Combine a window treatment that sticks to the frame like shutters, and hang curtains or drapes to either side to buffer the window. Combining coverings uses the space better, and can help smooth out the flow of your room. Are Your Small Windows Giving You Big Headaches?
