Window Treatments for Small Windows In San Antonio Homes09/11/2018Tyler Jorgensen The big, fancy window coverings you see on design shows or in Better Home & Garden are eye-catching, but those kind of windows aren’t in every home. More often San Antonio homeowners are concerned with smaller windows – windows that those big bold drapes don’t work with. If you’re worried about your small windows, here are our team’s recommendations for the best San Antonio window treatments. Plantation Shutters for Small Windows Small windows are a great fit for plantation shutters in San Antonio. You may think we’re a little predisposed to shutters, but they really are one of the best choices for small windows. And there’s a number of reasons why. Take a look! Shutters Can Fit Small Windows No Matter the Size Interior shutters are built specifically for your windows. That means that whatever size or shape the windows are, shutters will fit – without exception. Smaller windows run the gamut of styles: casement windows, eyebrow, circular, octagon windows, and so on. Custom plantation shutters can fit any one of them, even the shapes that other window coverings can’t. Shutters Help Make Smaller Windows Look Larger Some homeowners in San Antonio aren’t huge fans of how small their windows are. We get it, but nothing’s forcing you to put up with a window you’re not a fan of. Interior shutters can add some much-needed size to a small window, sometimes up to multiple inches 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 Let You Manage Light in Small Windows With smaller windows, light can be an all-or-nothing game. Either you’re totally covering your window, or it’s bare. That’s what you get with most window coverings like as drapes or curtains. But custom shutters offer a bit more flexibility with how you control lighting, especially with cafe shutters for small windows. Custom Shades for Small Windows The big thing with small window shades is to look for custom shades. The majority of smaller windows are in unusual sizes, so the majority of shades you get at the store will completely cover a window instead of framing it. So measure your windows precisely and look for custom shades that fit both your window and the space around it. Shades can make smaller windows seem a tad “boxier” 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 San Antonio homeowners do for their smaller windows is to use more than one kind of window treatment. 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 sits on the frame like blinds, and hang curtains on the sides to border the window. Combining coverings helps your space look a little bigger, and can help smooth out the flow of your room. Small Windows Giving You Big Headaches? Don’t fret over small windows anymore, San Antonio.
