What to Put on Small Windows In Bluff City Homes

September 11, 2018

The big, stately windows you see on design shows or in the pages of home magazines are eye-catching, but not every home has those kind of windows. Homeowners in Bluff City are usually more concerned with smaller windows – the type that big, luxurious drapes don’t work with.

For small windows, here are our team’s recommendations for the best Bluff City window treatments.

Custom Shutters for Small Windows 

Small windows are a great fit for plantation shutters in Bluff City. You might think we’re a little predisposed to shutters, but shutters really are one of the best choices for smaller windows. And there are more than a few reasons why. As you'll see, shutters are a terrific option for transom windows and other small windows.

Shutters Can Fit Smaller Windows No Matter the Size

Plantation shutters are custom-built to your specific windows. That means that no matter the size or shape of the windows in your home, shutters will fit – without exception.

Small windows run the gamut of styles: casements, transom windows, rounded, octagonal windows, and several other styles. Customized shutters fit any and all of them, even the shapes that other window coverings can’t.

Shutters Make Small Windows Look Larger

Some homeowners in Bluff City aren’t huge fans of how small their windows are. That’s fine, but nothing’s forcing you to put up with a window you’re not a fan of. Plantation shutters can add up to a few inches to a window with the right frame and mount. Of course, shutters won’t really affect the size of the window, but it can make it look a lot larger than it actually is.

Shutters Control Light in Small Windows

With smaller windows, light is often an all-or-nothing issue. Either you’re covering the whole window, or you aren’t. That’s the deal with most window coverings such as shades or curtains. But custom shutters offer a bit 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 look for custom shades. Most smaller windows don’t have a standard size, so most shades you buy off the rack will completely cover a window instead of framing it. So measure your windows precisely and look at custom shades that play to your window and your space’s strengths.

Shades may make smaller windows seem a tad “boxier” and draw attention to their small size, so be careful about making the right call for your windows.

Combining Window Treatments for Small Windows

What we’ve seen some forward-thinking Bluff City homeowners do for their smaller windows is to combine window treatments 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 sticks to the frame like shutters, and hang curtains or drapes to either side to buffer the window.

This makes better use of the space, and can help smooth out the flow of your room.
