Ways To Cover Corner Windows In Philadelphia

March 28, 2022

Choosing window treatments to go in your Philadelphia home seems easy enough. However, a couple types of windows can prove harder to dress, such as when the window panes that meet together at a corner. If you have to cover corner windows in Philadelphia, custom plantation shutters or window shades work better than other treatments. When fabricated to fit your windows exactly, they look chic and give you the coverage you need.

Stunning Interior Shutters Totally Cover Corner Windows In Philadelphia

You can have a couple issues when you attempt to cover corner windows in Philadelphia. If you have a single window that extends to both sides of the corner, blinds on each half won’t fit neatly together and will leave a gap for sunlight to come in or catch on each other. If you have separate windows that nearly touch at a corner, you may lack space for drapes in the corner.

Plantation shutters fix all of these issues. Thanks to their customized design, they fit all window shapes, sizes, and configurations–including corner windows. They have a solid faux-wood or hardwood frame built around your window with louvered shutter panels inside the frame. And every louvered shutter is customized to fit your window’s exact dimensions. With a single corner window, the two sides of the frame will meet perfectly inside the corner and will leaving no gap. The installer will hang the frame to leave enough room to adjust each louver without them bumping each other in the corner. If you cover two corner windows, you don’t have to wonder how to pull back fabric panels with solid shutters.

Interior shutters give incredible advantages as window coverings too. Both premium hardwood shutters and energy-efficient Polywood® shutters shut tightly to give you privacy and darkness whenever you want it. Shutters block drafts as well–particularly Polywood shutters, which come with weatherstripping for superb energy efficiency. However, their best benefit is their eye-catching beauty. Unlike with fabric window treatments, interior shutters give your windows architectural detail. They look timeless and elegant, even on awkward corner windows.

Window Shades Dress Up Corner Windows With Colorful Style

Certain window shades can also be corner window treatments in Philadelphia. Fabric shades on each side of a continuous corner window will nearly touch in the seam with only the smallest line of light when closed. For two separate windows in a corner, inside-mounted shades will hang within your window frames where they won’t touch each other.

For the tidiest look, use smooth roller shades. But Roman and cellular shades work too. Just make sure to order custom window shades. Off-the-shelf window treatments won’t fit the unique dimensions of your corner window and will likely have spaces that you don’t want.

The biggest advantage of using a roller or Roman shade on your corner window is all the options you have. Window shades not only come in lots of different styles, but you’ll find each style in different materials, colors, and patterns. A custom-made window shade is a fabulous option when your corner window could use a bit of color to give it some flair.
