Tyler Jorgensen

The big, luxurious window coverings you see in fancy HGTV homes or in the pages ofBetter Home & Garden can make you swoon, but those aren’t typical for every home. More often Oklahoma City homeowners are concerned with smaller windows – windows that big, luxurious drapes won’t work for.

When it comes to small windows, here are Sunburst’s picks for the best Oklahoma City window treatments.

Small windows are perfect for plantation shutters in Oklahoma City. You might think we’re a little predisposed to shutters, but they actually are perfect for smaller windows. And there are more than a few reasons why. Let’s find out!
 

Shutters Fit Smaller Windows No Matter What

Interior shutters are built specifically for your windows. That means that no matter the size or shape of the windows in your home, shutters will fit – no exceptions.

Smaller windows run the gamut of styles: casements, eyebrow, porthole windows, octagon-shaped windows, etc. Plantation shutters fit any and all of them, even the shapes that other window treatments can’t.

Shutters Can Make Small Windows Look Bigger

Some homeowners in Oklahoma City aren’t huge fans of how small their windows are. We get it, but nothing’s forcing you to live with a window you don’t like. Sunburst shutters can add up to a few inches to a window with the right frame and mount. Obviously, shutters won’t actually affect the size of the window, but it makes the window look bigger than it 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 coverings like as shades or curtains. But plantation shutters offer 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. The majority of small windows aren’t standard sizes, so a lot of shades you get at the store will completely cover a window instead of framing it. So measure your windows precisely and look for custom shades that play to your window and your space’s strengths.

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

Combining Window Treatments for Small Windows

What some smart Oklahoma City homeowners choose for small windows is to use more than one kind of window treatment to make them more interesting and bigger. In fact, you can do this on any window in your home to the same effect. Combine a window treatment that sticks to the frame like shutters, and hang curtains to either side to frame the window.

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