Window Treatments for Small Windows In Indianapolis Homes

Bill Burke

The big, luxurious windows you see in fancy HGTV homes or in the pages ofinterior design magazines are swoon-worthy, but those aren’t typical for every home. More often Indianapolis homeowners are concerned with smaller windows – windows that those big bold drapes aren’t suited to.

When it comes to small windows, these are our team’s recommendations for the best Indianapolis window treatments.

Custom Shutters for Small Windows

Small windows are a great fit for plantation shutters in Indianapolis. You might think we’re biased because “shutters” is in our name, but they really are perfect for smaller windows. And there are a number of reasons why. Check them out!

Shutters Fit Smaller Windows No Matter What

Plantation shutters are custom-built to your specific windows. That means that whatever size or shape the windows are, shutters will fit – without exception.

Small windows run the gamut of styles: casements, transom windows, circular, octagon windows, and several other styles. 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 Indianapolis residents don’t like the fact that their small windows are, well, small. That’s ok, but you don’t have to put up with a window you’re not a fan of. Sunburst shutters can add up to a few inches to a window with the right frame and mount. Obviously, this won’t actually make the window bigger, but it can make it look a lot larger than it actually is.

Shutters Let You Manage Light in Small Windows

For smaller windows, light is all or nothing. Either you’re covering the whole window, or it’s bare. That’s what you get with most window treatments such as shades or curtains. But custom shutters give you a little more flexibility with your lighting, especially with cafe shutters for small windows.

Custom Shades for Small Windows

The most important thing with small window shades is to shop for custom shades. More often than not small windows are in unusual sizes, so the majority of shades you find in stores will completely cover a window rather than framing it. So get the exact measurements of your windows and shop for custom shades that play to your window and your space’s strengths.

Shades might make small windows look a tad more boxy and draw attention to their small size, so use caution when choosing window treatments for your space.

Combining Window Treatments for Small Windows

What some smart Indianapolis homeowners choose for their smaller 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 sits on the frame like shutters, and hang drapes to either side to buffer the window.

Combining coverings uses the space better, and makes the flow of your room more smooth.
