Covering Small Windows In Your Destin Home

Eric Ramsey

The big, luxurious window coverings you see on design shows or in the pages ofinterior design magazines are swoon-worthy, but those aren’t typical for every home. Homeowners in Destin are usually more concerned with smaller windows – the kind that oversized, flowing drapes don’t work with.

If you’re worried about your small windows, these are our picks for the best Destin window treatments.

Small windows are perfect for plantation shutters in Destin. You may think we’re a little predisposed to shutters, but shutters really are perfect for smaller windows. And there are more than a few reasons why. Check them out!

Shutters Fit Small Windows No Matter the Size

Plantation shutters are built specifically for your windows. That means that whatever size or shape the windows are, shutters will fit – no exceptions.

Small windows run the gamut of styles: casement windows, transom windows, rounded, octagonal windows, and several other styles. Custom shutters fit any and all of them, even the ones that other window treatments can’t.

Shutters Help Make Small Windows Look Bigger

Some homeowners in Destin aren’t huge fans of how small their windows are. We get it, but nothing’s forcing you to tolerate a window you’re not a fan of. Sunburst shutters can add some much-needed size to a small window, even up to multiple inches with the right frame and mount. Of course, this won’t really affect the size of the window, but it creates the illusion of a larger window.

Shutters Control Light in Small Windows

For small windows, light is usually all or nothing. Either you’re covering the window, or you aren’t. That’s what you get with most window coverings such as drapes or curtains. But interior shutters let you have a bit more flexibility with lighting and privacy, especially when you factor in styles like cafe shutters for small windows.

Custom Shades for Small Windows

The most important thing with small window shades is to look for custom shades. The majority of small windows don’t have a standard size, so a lot of shades you buy off the rack will completely cover a window instead of framing it. So make sure you have precise measurements of your windows and look at custom shades that play to your window and your space’s strengths.

Shades might make small windows seem a little “boxier” and draw attention to their small size, so be careful about making the right call for your windows.

Combining Window Treatments for Small Windows

What we’ve seen some forward-thinking Destin homeowners choose for their smaller windows is to combine window treatments to make them more interesting and bigger. In fact, you can do this on just about any kind of window, big or small. Combine a window treatment that sits on the frame like blinds, and hang curtains or drapes to either side to buffer the window.

This makes better use of the space, and lets eyes flow across your room more smoothly.
