More often Sacramento homeowners are concerned with smaller windows – the type that oversized, flowing drapes aren’t suited to. If you’re worried about your small windows, here are our recommendations for the best Sacramento window treatments. Plantation Shutters for Small Windows Sacramento plantation shutters work wonders for small windows. Some may think we’re just favoring shutters, but they actually are a fantastic for smaller windows. And there’s more than a few reasons why. Check them out! Shutters Fit Smaller Windows No Matter What Interior shutters are custom-built to your specific windows. So whatever size or shape the windows are, shutters will fit – without exception. Small windows come in a number of styles: casement windows, eyebrow, rounded, octagonal windows, etc. Customized shutters can fit each and every one of them, even the ones that other window treatments can’t. Shutters Make Small Windows Look Bigger Some homeowners in Sacramento aren’t huge fans of how small their windows are. That’s understandable, but you don’t have to put up with a window you don’t like. 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 can make it look a lot larger than it actually is. Shutters Help Manage 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 what you get with most window treatments like as drapes or curtains. But interior shutters give you a bit more flexibility with how you control lighting, especially when you factor in styles like cafe shutters for small windows. Custom Shades for Small Windows The most important thing with shades for smaller windows is to shop for custom shades. More often than not smaller windows are in unusual sizes, so most store-bought shades will completely cover a window instead of framing it. So measure your windows precisely and look into custom shades that fit both your window and the space around it. Shades may make smaller windows look a tad “boxier” and draw attention to their small size, so think a bit before using them for your home. Combining Window Treatments for Small Windows What some forward-thinking Sacramento homeowners choose for their smaller windows is to combine window treatments to make them more interesting and bigger. 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 buffer the window. It helps your space look a little bigger, and can help smooth out the flow of your room. Are Your Small Windows Causing Big Headaches? Don’t worry about your small windows anymore, Sacramento.
