Windows come in all shapes and statures, from grand and large to small and cute. For those smaller windows, though, what types of window treatments work best?
What To Consider
A small window can be an adorable accent to a room and be just the right size to let in just the right amount of light. But, like any window, you’ll likely want to be able to close up from time to time. To do so, you’ll need a custom-fitted window covering. When looking at window treatments with a smaller scale in mind, you should keep a few things in mind. First, you don’t want something that is too big or grand. Your treatment choice should match the stature of the window, otherwise, proportions look off. You should also be sure that something can be custom-sized. Since smaller windows aren’t traditional sizes, be sure to match measurements at all times. You also want to keep functionality in mind. Is this a window in a place you’ll want to block off at night? Do you want some light but not all blocked out? Those factors can influence your covering choices.
Best Window Treatments
In terms of clean lines and controlled light, blinds are an excellent option for small windows. Their naturally minimal design means they won’t overpower a small window. They also allow you a lot of control over the amount of light you let in. This can be exceptionally helpful in smaller spaces when you want just a little light through.
Shutters are also a great choice of window treatments. While they add dimensionality, they don’t overwhelm a small window. Rather than looking at odds in a space, shutters can add a sometimes-needed pop of interest to a smaller window space.
Window Coverings To Avoid
On the other hand, something like long curtains or heavy drapes can engulf a small window; a case of overkill. As they are neither tall nor wide, small windows can be swallowed up by too much fabric. In turn, those long curtains will also look out of place in the room.
