For small windows, these are our recommendations for the best Boise window treatments.

Shutters Can Make Smaller Windows Look Bigger

Some Boise residents don’t like the fact that their small windows are, well, small. 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 creates the illusion of a larger window.

Shutters Control Light in Small Windows

For smaller windows, light is an all-or-nothing issue. 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 let you have 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. The majority of small windows don’t have a standard size, so the majority of shades you find in stores 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 play to your window and your space’s strengths.

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 shutters, and hang curtains on the sides to border the window.

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