- Style of your home
- Solutions needed
Unique Home Front
Oftentimes, uniquely-shaped windows are featured in the front of the home, they add a beautiful designer look to the exterior and offer extraordinary curb appeal. But, if your home faces in the wrong direction, too much natural light through these windows may cause issues indoors. Avoid harmful UV rays and extreme temperatures by covering windows with treatments designed with protection in mind. Along with highlighting the style of your home, the right window coverings add privacy and a sense of security for your family.
The “Unique” Look
With no shortage in choices, window shades, shutters, blinds & draperies will offer the solutions you need to cover uniquely-shaped windows. Once you’ve decided where coverage is required, “coordinating” window treatments in the shared space is best to get “the look”. Try to avoid “matching” window treatments and cover your windows in complementary styles for an overall cohesive appearance.
Uniquely Shaped Windows-Coverage Needed
All in all, the choice to cover your uniquely-shaped windows is a personal one and room specific too-bedroom windows may need full-coverage whereas great room windows can be left exposed at the top and partially covered.
