The big, luxurious window treatments you see on design shows or in interior design magazines are breathtaking, but those kind of windows aren’t in every home. More often Salt Lake City homeowners are concerned with smaller windows – windows that big, luxurious drapes won’t work for.

When it comes to small windows, these are our team’s picks for the best Salt Lake City window treatments.

Smaller windows are in every style: casements, eyebrow, porthole windows, octagonal windows, and beyond. Custom shutters fit all of these styles, even the ones that other window treatments can’t.

Shutters Can Make Small Windows Look Bigger

Some Salt Lake City homeowners aren’t huge fans of how small their windows are. That’s understandable, but you don’t have to live with a window that you don’t love. Sunburst shutters can add up to a few inches to a window with the right frame and mount. Obviously, shutters won’t actually make the window bigger, but it creates the illusion of a larger window.

Shutters Let You Manage Light in Small Windows

For smaller windows, light is usually an all-or-nothing game. Either you’re totally covering your window, or it’s bare. That’s what you get with most window coverings including as shades or curtains. But interior shutters give you a bit more flexibility with how you control lighting, especially when you’re talking about cafe shutters for small windows.

Custom Shades for Small Windows

The big thing with small window shades is to look for custom shades. The majority of smaller windows aren’t standard sizes, so the majority of shades you find in stores will completely cover a window rather than framing it. So measure your windows precisely and shop for 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 be careful about making the right call for your space.

Combining Window Treatments for Small Windows

What some smart Salt Lake City homeowners do for their smaller windows is to combine window treatments. In fact, it doesn’t even have to be your small windows you do this with. Combine a window treatment that sticks to the frame like shutters, and hang drapes on the sides to buffer the window.

This helps your space look a little bigger, and makes the flow of your room more smooth.
