What to Put on Small Windows In Kingsport Homes09/11/2018Jacob Hayes The big, fancy window coverings you see on design shows or in Better Home & Garden are eye-catching, but not every home has those kind of windows. More often Kingsport homeowners are concerned with smaller windows – the type that oversized, flowing drapes aren’t suited to. For small windows, here are our team’s recommendations for the best Kingsport window treatments. Custom Shutters for Small Windows Small windows are a great fit for plantation shutters in Kingsport. You might think we’re biased because “shutters” is in our name, but shutters really are one of the best choices for smaller windows. And there are more than a few reasons why. Check them out! Shutters Can Fit Smaller Windows No Matter What 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 are in every style: casements, transom windows, rounded, octagonal windows, and beyond. Custom shutters fit any and all of them, even the shapes that other window coverings can’t. Shutters Make Small Windows Look Larger Some Kingsport residents don’t like the fact that their small windows are, well, small. We get it, but nothing’s forcing you to live 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. 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 Let You Manage Light in Small Windows With smaller windows, light is often all or nothing. Either you’re totally covering your 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. The majority of smaller windows aren’t standard sizes, so most shades you buy off the rack will completely cover a window instead of framing it. So get precise measurements of your windows and look at custom shades that play to your window and your space’s strengths. Shades might make smaller windows seem a tad “boxier” and draw attention to their small size, so be careful about making the right call for your home. Combining Window Treatments for Small Windows What we’ve seen some forward-thinking Kingsport 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 blinds, and hang curtains or drapes to either side to buffer the window. Combining coverings makes better use of the space, and can help smooth out the flow of your room. Are Your Small Windows Causing Big Headaches?
