Octagon Window Covering Options For Austin Homeowners05/23/2016Tyler Jorgensen If your window is an octagon, it can be challenging to find a window treatment in Austin that gives privacy and light control. And you don’t want a window treatment that hides the unique octagon shape. So how do you go about finding a window treatment for your octagon window? Shutters For Octagon Windows Plantation shutters can be custom made to match your window’s shape. You can select from stained wood plantation shutters or painted synthetic wood shutters to cover your octagon windows. Octagon shutters fit each angle and corner of the octagon, so that your window shape pops against the wall. You’ll love the look of your octagon shutters - and how simple it is to adjust the louvers to control for privacy and brightness. Shutters also give you increased energy efficiency. Our Polywood® shutters are 1600% more energy efficient than aluminum blinds and 70% more energy efficient than normal wooden shutters. Window Film For Octagon Windows Window film filters sunlight coming in through the window, blocking harmful UV rays. This reduces fading that can happen to your furniture and carpeting. Window film that is professionally installed on your octagon window, the film perfectly matches the octagonal shape. You can purchase window film in different styles that give some light control and privacy. Without these options, neighbors can see inside through the octagonal window. For ultimate privacy and control over light, pair window film with plantation shutters. Blinds, Shades, & Draperies For Octagon Windows You can purchase blinds, shades, and draperies and mount them over your octagonal windows in Austin. But, we don’t recommend it because they hide your window’s shape. Shades and blinds can give you privacy and light control when they’re closed, but they aren’t as functional as a shutter on a special-shaped window. Octagon shutters give a custom look to your window that highlights its angles, and you can control its louvers for light and privacy.
