Ways To Cover Corner Windows In Austin

March 28, 2022

Picking window treatments for your Austin house seems easy enough. But some windows can prove more challenging to dress, like when there are window panes that come together at a corner. If you want to cover corner windows in Austin, window shades or custom plantation shutters work better than blinds or curtains. When fabricated to fit your windows precisely, they look chic and provide the coverage you need.

Elegant Interior Shutters Totally Cover Corner Windows In Austin

You can run into a few problems when you attempt to cover corner windows in Austin. If you have a window that spans the two sides of the corner, blinds over each half can’t fit neatly together and will create a gap for sunlight to come in or catch on each other. If you have separate windows that nearly meet in the corner, you may lack space for curtain panels in the corner.

Louvered shutters address each of these issues. Thanks to their unique construction, they fit every window size, shape, and configuration around your window with louvered panels inside this frame. And every interior shutter is customized to fit your specific window dimensions. For a single corner window, the two sides of the frame will meet perfectly in the corner , leaving no gap. Your professional installer will build the frame to make plenty of space to open the louvers without them touching in the edges. If you cover two windows in a corner, you don’t have to worry about where to pull back fabric drapes with your hard shutters.

Louvered shutters provide incredible benefits as window coverings too. Both hardwood shutters and faux-wood Polywood® shutters shut tight to give you darkness and privacy whenever you want it. They block drafts as well–particularly Polywood shutters, which come with weatherstripping for excellent energy efficiency. Perhaps their best benefit is their eye-catching beauty. Interior shutters give your windows architectural detail that you won’t get with fabric window treatments. They look timeless and sophisticated, even on odd corner windows.

Window Shades Enhance Corner Windows With Colorful Fashions

Certain window shades can also work as corner window treatments in Austin. Fabric shades on both sides of a continuous corner window will nearly touch in the seam with just the tiniest line of light when closed. On two corner windows, inside-mounted shades will hang within the window frames and can’t touch one another.

For the neatest look, use smooth roller shades. But cellular and Roman shades work too. Just make sure to purchase custom window shades. Off-the-shelf window treatments won’t match the exact dimensions of your corner window and will likely leave unwanted spaces.

The biggest benefit of covering your corner window with a roller or Roman shade is all the options available. Window shades not only come in many varying styles, but each style comes in different materials, patterns, and colors. A customized window shade is an excellent choice if your corner window could use a touch of color to dress it up.
