Shutters Make Smaller Windows Look Larger

Some homeowners in Fort Myers aren’t huge fans of how small their windows are. That’s understandable, but you don’t have to live with a window you don’t like. Plantation shutters can add size to a small window, even up to multiple inches with the right frame and mount. Of course, this won’t really affect the size of the window, but it can make it look a lot larger than it actually is.

Shutters Let You Manage Light in Small Windows

With small windows, light can be all or nothing. Either you’re totally covering your window, or it’s bare. That’s how it is with most window treatments including as shades or curtains. But plantation shutters give you a bit more flexibility with lighting and privacy, especially when you factor in styles like cafe shutters for small windows.

Custom Shades for Small Windows

The key with small window shades is to go with custom shades. More often than not smaller windows are in unusual sizes, so a lot of store-bought shades will completely cover a window instead of framing it. So measure your windows precisely and look into custom shades that play to your window and your space’s strengths.

Shades might make small windows seem a tad more boxy and draw attention to their small size, so think a bit before using them for your home.

Combining Window Treatments for Small Windows

What we’ve seen some savvy Fort Myers homeowners do for their smaller windows is to combine window treatments to make them more interesting and bigger. In fact, it doesn’t even have to be your small windows you do this with. Combine a window treatment that sticks to the frame like blinds, and hang drapes on the sides to buffer the window.

Combining coverings makes better use of the space, and can help smooth out the flow of your room.
