What to Put on Small Windows In Your Dallas Home

September 11, 2018

The big, luxurious windows you see on design shows or in the pages of interior design magazines can make you swoon, but not every home has those kind of windows. More often Dallas homeowners are concerned with smaller windows – the kind that those big bold drapes don’t work with.

For small windows, here are our team’s picks for the best Dallas window treatments.

Shutters Can Fit Smaller Windows No Matter the Size

Interior shutters are custom-built to your specific windows. That means that no matter the size or shape of the windows in your home, shutters will fit – without exception.

Small windows run the gamut of styles: casement windows, eyebrow, rounded, octagon windows, and several other styles. Custom plantation shutters can fit each and every one of them, even the ones that other window treatments can’t.

Shutters Can Make Smaller Windows Look Larger

Some homeowners in Dallas don’t like the fact that their small windows are, well, small. That’s fine, but nothing’s forcing you to tolerate a window you’re not a fan of. Plantation shutters can add a number of inches to a window with the right frame and mount. Obviously, this won’t actually affect the size of the window, but it can make it look a lot larger than it actually is.

Shutters Help Manage Light in Small Windows

With small windows, light is often all or nothing. Either you’re covering the window, or you aren’t. That’s what you get with most window coverings including as drapes or curtains. But interior shutters let you have a little more flexibility with your lighting, especially when you factor in styles like cafe shutters for small windows.

Custom Shades for Small Windows

The key with shades for smaller windows is to look for custom shades. The majority of small windows aren’t standard sizes, so a lot of shades you find in stores will completely cover a window instead of framing it. So measure your windows precisely and look for custom shades that fit both your window and the space around it.

Shades may make small windows look a little more boxy and draw attention to their small size, so be careful about making the right call for your windows.

Combining Window Treatments for Small Windows

What some smart Dallas homeowners choose for small 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 sits on the frame like blinds or shutters, and hang curtains to either side to buffer the window.

Combining coverings helps your space look a little bigger, and lets eyes flow across your room more smoothly.
