What to Put on Small Windows In Your Boise Home

September 11, 2018

The big, luxurious windows you see on design shows or in the pages of home magazines are breathtaking, but those kind of windows aren’t in every home. More often Boise homeowners are concerned with smaller windows – windows that big, luxurious drapes won’t work for.

For small windows, these are Sunburst’s recommendations for the best Boise window treatments.

Plantation Shutters for Small Windows 

Small windows are perfect for plantation shutters in Boise. You might think we’re just favoring shutters, but shutters really are perfect for smaller windows. And there are a number of reasons why. For example, see why shutters are a wonderful option for transom windows and other small windows.

Shutters Can Fit Smaller Windows No Matter the Size

Interior shutters are built specifically for your windows. So whatever size or shape the windows are, shutters will fit – no exceptions.

Small windows come in a number of styles: casements, eyebrow, circular, octagon-shaped windows, and so on. Plantation shutters fit any and all of them, even the ones that other window treatments can’t.

Shutters Can Make Smaller Windows Look Bigger

Some homeowners in Boise aren’t huge fans of how small their windows are. That’s ok, but you don’t have to live with a window you don’t like. Sunburst shutters can add a number of inches to a window with the right frame and mount. Obviously, this won’t really make the window bigger, but it makes the window look bigger than it is.

Shutters Let You Manage Light in Small Windows

For smaller windows, light is all or nothing. Either you’re covering the window, or you aren’t. That’s how it is with most window treatments like as drapes or curtains. But custom shutters offer a little more flexibility with your lighting, 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 go with custom shades. Most small windows aren’t standard sizes, so a lot of store-bought shades will just cover up your window instead of framing it. So make sure you have the exact measurements of your windows and look at custom shades that accentuate your small window and the surrounding area.

Shades might make smaller windows look 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 we’ve seen some savvy Boise homeowners do for small windows is to combine window treatments. In fact, the windows don’t even have to be small for you to try this in your own home. Combine a window treatment that sticks to the frame like blinds, and hang drapes on the sides to frame the window.

Combining coverings uses the space better, and can help smooth out the flow of your room.
