What to Put on Small Windows In Your Jacksonville Home09/11/2018Kevin McCormack The big, stately windows you see on design shows or in Better Home & Garden are swoon-worthy, but those kind of windows aren’t in every home. More often Jacksonville homeowners are concerned with smaller windows – windows that oversized, flowing drapes don’t work with. If you’re worried about your small windows, here are our picks for the best Jacksonville window treatments. Custom Shutters for Small Windows Jacksonville plantation shutters work wonders for small windows. You may think we’re a little predisposed to shutters, but shutters actually are perfect for small windows. And there are a number of reasons why. Check them out! Shutters Can Fit Smaller Windows No Matter the Size Interior shutters are custom-built to your specific windows. So no matter the size or shape of the windows in your home, shutters will fit – no exceptions. Small windows are in every style: casement windows, eyebrow, rounded, octagonal windows, and beyond. Plantation shutters fit all of these styles, even the ones that other window treatments can’t. Shutters Make Small Windows Look Larger Some Jacksonville homeowners don’t like that their windows are on the smaller side. We get it, but nothing’s forcing you to put up with a window you’re not a fan of. Custom shutters can add some much-needed size to a small window, even up to multiple inches with the right frame and mount. Obviously, this won’t actually affect the size of the window, but it can make it look a lot larger than it actually is. Shutters Help Manage Light in Small Windows For small windows, light is often all or nothing. Either you’re covering the window, or it’s bare. That’s what you get with most window coverings including as drapes or curtains. But custom shutters give you a bit more flexibility with lighting and privacy, 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 go with custom shades. Most small windows don’t have a standard size, so a lot of store-bought shades will completely cover a window instead of framing it. So measure your windows precisely and look into custom shades that play to your window and your space’s strengths. Shades can make smaller windows seem a tad more boxy and draw attention to their small size, so think a bit before using them for your windows. Combining Window Treatments for Small Windows What some forward-thinking Jacksonville homeowners do for their smaller windows is to use more than one kind of window treatment to make them more interesting and bigger. In fact, you can do this on any window in your home to the same effect. Combine a window treatment that sits on the frame like blinds, and hang drapes on the sides to buffer the window. It makes better use of the space, and makes your room’s flow a little more seamless. Are Your Small Windows Causing Big Problems? Don’t worry about your small windows anymore, Jacksonville.
