Whether you are living in an old, characterful property or an ultra modern one, you may well be considering the problem of finding window coverings for odd shaped windows.
Very often, these types of windows will be providing a feature or making a statement, so the last thing you want to do is cover them up with something less than stunning. Traditional types of coverings are impractical and ugly, but now there is not just an alternative, but a perfect solution – window shutters.
As they are made-to-measure, the fit is always perfect – following the lines of your windows rather than covering them up with a square blind or a curtain. The result – you still have your stunning feature windows, but now with total privacy and light control.
No Two Windows Are The Same?
There are many different shapes of windows, whether they are set in a wall, gable end or ceiling. For example, you may have:
- A circular window
- An arched window
- An angled window
- A triangular shape
- Unusual shaped doors to the garden
Each poses its own unique problems, but this really doesn’t matter because with made-to-measure shutters anything is possible.
Do remember though, the importance of precise measurements for your shutters, which is where an expert supplier and fitter is necessary. Not only will he or she be able to accurately measure your opening, they will also be able to recommend the perfect window coverings for odd shaped windows, no matter what their shape or size.
Arch and Angled Windows
These types of windows are always beautiful to look at and the only type of window covering to consider is shutters Not only do they provide a functional covering, but also one that will give an added degree of elegance and design to what is already a great feature.
Arched and angled windows need a special solution and shutters will give you the choice of closing the hinged panels and opening the louvre slats to let in as little or as much light as you require. Another option is to concertina the panels so that they fold right back, allowing an unobstructed view of your garden, door or window.
Difficult Window Treatments. The Conclusion.
Once you have made the decision to have shutters installed, you will soon realise that there is no window shape that is impossible to cover with sophistication and panache.
The importance lies in ensuring that the window remains a feature rather than an eyesore. Curtains and blinds, especially in hard to reach places, are difficult to keep clean and will gather dust no matter how hard you try.
Shutters can be cleaned easily by running the vacuum cleaner nozzle over them, or if they are within reach, with a soft cloth if you prefer; they will not become dust gatherers which can cause allergies. No matter how unique or difficult, S:CRAFT can make window coverings for odd shaped windows which will fit perfectly and look amazing.
