What to Put on Small Windows In Las Vegas Homes

September 11, 2018

The big, luxurious window treatments you see on design shows or in the pages of interior design magazines are breathtaking, but not every home has those kind of windows. More often Las Vegas homeowners are concerned with smaller windows – the type that those big bold drapes aren’t suited to.

When it comes to small windows, here are our picks for the best Las Vegas window treatments.

Shutters Fit Smaller Windows No Matter the Shape

Interior shutters are built specifically for your windows. So 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, transom windows, circular, octagon-shaped windows, and so on. Customized shutters fit any and all of them, even the shapes that other window treatments can’t.

Shutters Help Make Smaller Windows Look Larger

Some Las Vegas homeowners don’t like that their windows are on the smaller side. We get it, but nothing’s forcing you to tolerate a window you don’t like. Custom shutters can add up to a few 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 Control Light in Small Windows

With small windows, light is often an all-or-nothing game. Either you’re covering the window, or it’s bare. That’s the deal with most window coverings including as drapes or curtains. But custom shutters give you a little more flexibility with lighting and privacy, especially when you factor in styles like cafe shutters for small windows.

Custom Shades for Small Windows

The most important thing with shades for smaller windows is to shop for custom shades. The majority of smaller windows are in unusual sizes, so a lot of shades you find in stores will completely cover a window instead of framing it. So get the exact measurements of your windows and shop for custom shades that fit both your window and the space around it.

Shades may make smaller windows seem a little more boxy and draw attention to their small size, so think a bit before using them for your space.

Combining Window Treatments for Small Windows

What some savvy Las Vegas homeowners do for their smaller windows is to combine window treatments. 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 blinds, and hang curtains or drapes on the sides to frame the window.

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