Octagon Window Treatment Tips For Philadelphia Homeowners05/23/2016Holly Perron If your window is an octagon, it can be a challenge to find a window treatment in Philadelphia that gives light control and privacy. And your window treatment shouldn’t hide the stunning octagon shape. So how do you find a window treatment that fits your octagon-shaped window? Shutters For Octagon Windows Plantation shutters can be custom manufactured to match your octagon window. You can select from painted synthetic wood shutters or stained wood plantation shutters to fit your octagon windows. Octagon shutters fit each angle and line of the octagon, so that your window shape is accentuated. You’ll love how octagon shutters look, and how simple it is to adjust the louvers to control for brightness and privacy. Shutters also give you higher energy efficiency. Our Polywood® shutters are 70% more energy efficient than traditional wooden shutters and 1600% more energy efficient than aluminum blinds. Window Film For Octagon Windows Window film filters sunlight coming through the glass of the octagon window, keeping out UV rays. This reduces fading that can happen to your carpenting and furniture. When you have window film professionally installed on your octagon window, the edges of the film perfectly match the octagonal shape. You can choose window film in a selection of styles to provide some light control and privacy. If you don’t choose a type of light control, neighbors can look inside through the octagonal window. For the most privacy and light control, combine window film with plantation shutters. Blinds, Shades, & Draperies For Octagon Windows You can purchase blinds, shades, and draperies and mount them on your octagonal windows in Philadelphia. However, we don’t recommend them because they cover your window’s shape. Even though blinds and shades can give you privacy and light control when closed, they don’t function as well as a shutter on a special-shaped window. Octagon shutters give the window a custom look that makes its angles stand out, and you can tilt its louvers for privacy and light.
