Octagon Window Covering Tips For San Jose Homeowners05/23/2016Curtis Orton When you have an octagon window, it might seem like a challenge to find a window treatment in San Jose that offers privacy and controls light. And your window treatment shouldn’t cover the beautiful octagon shape. So how do you find a window treatment that fits your octagon-shaped window? Shutters For Octagon Windows Plantation shutters can be custom manufactured to match your octagon window’s shape. You can select from painted synthetic wood shutters or stained wood plantation shutters to install on your octagon windows. Octagon shutters match every corner and angle of the octagon - so that your window shape pops. You’ll love how octagon shutters look, and how you can easily tilt the louvers to control for privacy and brightness. Shutters also increase your window’s energy efficiency. Our Polywood® shutters are 1600% more energy efficient than aluminum blinds and 70% more energy efficient than normal wooden shutters. Window Film For Octagon Windows Window film filters sunlight coming through the glass of the octagon window, blocking harmful UV rays. This minimizes fading that can happen to your furniture and carpeting. When your window film is professionally installed on your octagon window, the film lines up perfectly with the edges of the octagonal shape. You can purchase window film in different styles to provide some privacy and light control. If you don’t choose a type of light control, your neighbors can look inside through the octagonal window. For the best privacy and light control, combine window film with plantation shutters. Shades, Blinds, & Draperies For Octagon Windows You can order shades, blinds, and draperies and have them installed over your octagonal windows in San Jose. However, it’s not something we recommend because they hide the shape of your window. Shades and blinds can give you light control and privacy when closed, but they don’t work as well as a shutter on a special-shaped window. Octagon shutters give the window a custom look that highlights its angles, and you can adjust its louvers for light and privacy.
