Window Treatments for Small Windows In Honolulu Homes09/11/2018Darren Wong The big, stately window treatments you see in fancy HGTV homes or in the pages ofinterior design magazines can make you swoon, but those aren’t typical for every home. More often Honolulu homeowners are concerned with smaller windows – the kind that big, luxurious drapes don’t work with. For small windows, these are our recommendations for the best Honolulu window treatments. Plantation Shutters for Small Windows Honolulu plantation shutters work wonders for small windows. Some may think we’re just favoring shutters, but they really are a fantastic for small windows. And there’s more than a few reasons why. Let’s find out! Shutters Can Fit Small Windows No Matter the Shape Plantation shutters are built specifically for your windows. So no matter the size or shape of the windows in your home, shutters will fit – without exception. Smaller windows come in a number of styles: casement windows, eyebrow, circular, octagon-shaped windows, and beyond. Custom shutters can fit each and every one of them, even the shapes that other window treatments can’t. Shutters Help Make Small Windows Look Bigger Some Honolulu residents don’t like the fact that their small windows are, well, small. We get it, but nothing’s forcing you to put up with a window you’re not a fan of. Interior shutters can add a number of inches to a window with the right frame and mount. Obviously, shutters won’t really affect the size of the window, but it creates the illusion of a larger window. Shutters Control Light in Small Windows For smaller windows, light is usually all or nothing. Either you’re covering the window, or it’s bare. That’s the deal with most window treatments like as shades or curtains. But interior shutters give you a little more flexibility with your lighting, especially with cafe shutters for small windows. Custom Shades for Small Windows The big thing with small window shades is to look for custom shades. More often than not smaller windows aren’t standard sizes, so the majority of shades you find in stores will completely cover a window instead of framing it. So measure your windows precisely and look for custom shades that play to your window and your space’s strengths. Shades might make smaller windows look a little more boxy and draw attention to their small size, so use caution when choosing window treatments for your home. Combining Window Treatments for Small Windows What we’ve seen some smart Honolulu homeowners do for small 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 sticks to the frame like blinds or shutters, and hang drapes on the sides to border the window. Combining coverings makes better use of the space, and makes the flow of your room more smooth. Are Your Small Windows Giving You Big Problems? Don’t worry about your small windows anymore, Honolulu.
