How To Cover Corner Windows In Hartford

March 28, 2022

Choosing window treatments for your Hartford home should be straightforward. But some windows can prove more challenging to dress, like when the window panes that come together in a corner. If you have to cover corner windows in Hartford, window shades or custom-crafted plantation shutters work better than other treatments. When installed to fit your windows precisely, they look stylish and give you the coverage you need.

Stunning Interior Shutters Fully Cover Corner Windows In Hartford

You can experience a couple problems when you attempt to cover corner windows in Hartford. If one of your windows spans the two sides of the corner, blinds on each side won’t quite meet together and will create a gap that lets the sun in or catch on each other. If you have individual windows that almost meet at the corner, you might not have for curtain panels in the corner.

Plantation shutters solve all of these concerns. Thanks to their customized construction, they fit all window sizes, shapes, and configurations–including corner windows. They have a solid faux-wood or hardwood frame built around your window with louvered shutter panels inside the frame. And every louvered shutter is customized to fit your exact window dimensions. For a single window in a corner, the frame’s two sides will meet perfectly in the corner with no gap. Your installer will construct the frame to make plenty of space to open the louvers without them scraping each other at the edges. If you’re covering two windows in a corner, you never have to worry about how to hold back fabric drapes with your solid shutters.

Interior shutters have remarkable advantages as window treatments too. Both hardwood shutters and faux-wood Polywood® shutters close tight to give you darkness and privacy when you desire. Shutters keep out drafts as well–particularly Polywood shutters, which come with weatherstripping for incredible energy efficiency. Perhaps their most significant benefit is their superior beauty. Interior shutters give your windows architectural detail that you don’t get with fabric window treatments. They look classic and sophisticated, even on frustrating corner windows.

Window Shades Enhance Corner Windows With Colorful Fashions

Certain window shades can also work as corner window treatments in Hartford. Fabric shades on both sides of a continuous corner window will nearly touch at the seam with just the tiniest line of light when closed. For two separate windows in a corner, inside-mounted shades will fit within your window frames and can’t touch one another.

For the tidiest look, use flat roller shades. But cellular and Roman shades will do the job as well. Just make sure to order custom window shades. Store-bought window coverings won’t match the unique dimensions of your corner window and will probably create unwanted spaces.

The biggest benefit of dressing your corner window with a window shade is all the options out there. Window shades not only come in lots of different styles, but each style comes in different materials, colors, and patterns. A customized window shade is a great solution if your corner window needs a little color to dress it up.
