Windows with odd angles—like triangles, sloped windows, hexagons, and trapezoids—are architecturally pleasing and can add visual interest to a room, but they can be daunting to cover. Some homeowners might be tempted to leave them untreated. But at Perfect Fit Window Fashions serving Bonita Springs, we have some great treatment options that will help you achieve your aesthetic goals while also managing other issues windows can present. See below for some common issues and their solutions.
South-Facing Windows and Treatments
Windows that face south (or the east or west!) bring in lots of great natural light—but that can also mean UV rays and additional heat. One way to combat that is through an energy-efficient option like Duette® Cellular Shades. They’re designed with honeycomb-shaped pockets that trap air at the window, creating a layer of insulation. Duette shades are available in a wide assortment of fabrics and colors, in three different pleat sizes. These shades can be cut to fit your angled window and help increase its functionality in the room.
Shades for A-Frame Homes
While interesting in their own right, A-frame homes can offer a great deal of charm. However, their floor-to-ceiling angled windows might seem tough to cover. To help reduce incoming sunlight, UV rays, and heat, it’s important to find the right treatment to balance your home’s architectural interest with reducing problematic issues. That’s where Somner® Custom Vertical Blinds and Vertical Solutions® Blinds can help out. Each is available in a variety of materials as well as opacities and can cover the large expanse of angled windows presented in this scenario. Plus, they’ll give you versatile privacy and light control through their rotating vanes.
If your style leans toward traditional or classic, you might appreciate the elegance that shutters can bring a space. And you might appreciate even more how easy it is to care for them. For genuine wood, look no further than Heritance® Hardwood Shutters, which breathe that natural beauty into any space. They’re particularly good for home offices, living rooms, and any other room with an angled window. NewStyle® Composite Shutters look like genuine wood but are designed with the durability of faux materials. They’re easy to care for, and they withstand direct light and heat without cracking, fading, or bowing. For windows in a humid room, check out Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ Shutters, which are designed to resist warping, chipping, and peeling. No matter your final goal, be sure to speak with one of our representatives to determine which product is right for your space and needs.
