The big, fancy window coverings you see in fancy HGTV homes or in interior design magazines can make you swoon, but those aren’t typical for every home. Homeowners in New Brunswick are usually more concerned with smaller windows – the type that those big bold drapes don’t work with.
If you’re worried about your small windows, here are our team’s picks for the best New Brunswick window treatments.
Plantation Shutters for Small Windows
Small windows are a great fit for plantation shutters in New Brunswick. Some might think we’re just favoring shutters, but they actually are a fantastic for smaller windows. And there are more than a few reasons why. Let’s find out!
Shutters Can Fit Smaller Windows No Matter the Size
Interior shutters are custom-built to your specific windows. That means that whatever size or shape the windows are, shutters will fit – no exceptions.
Small windows are in every style: casements, transom windows, circular, octagon windows, and beyond. Plantation shutters fit all of these styles, even the ones that other window coverings can’t.
Shutters Make Smaller Windows Look Larger
Some homeowners in New Brunswick 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 don’t like. Plantation shutters can add some much-needed size to a small window, sometimes up to multiple inches with the right frame and mount. Of course, shutters won’t really make the window bigger, but it can make it look a lot larger than it actually is.
Shutters Control Light in Small Windows
With small windows, light is usually all or nothing. Either you’re covering the window, or it’s bare. That’s what you get with most window treatments including as drapes or curtains. But plantation shutters offer a little more flexibility with lighting and privacy, especially with cafe shutters for small windows.
Custom Shades for Small Windows
The most important thing with shades for smaller windows is to go with custom shades. The majority of smaller windows are in unusual sizes, so most shades you find in stores will completely cover a window rather than framing it. So measure your windows precisely and look into custom shades that fit both your window and the space around it.
Shades may make small windows seem a tad more boxy 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 smart New Brunswick homeowners choose for small 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 or drapes on the sides to border the window.
Combining coverings makes better use of the space, and can help smooth out the flow of your room.
