How To Cover Corner Windows In San Jose

March 28, 2022

Picking window treatments to go in your San Jose house appears easy enough. However, a couple types of windows can prove more difficult to cover, like when there are window panes that meet together in a corner. If you want to cover corner windows in San Jose, window shades or custom-made plantation shutters work better than other treatments. When fabricated to fit your windows exactly, they look attractive and provide the coverage you need.

Elegant Interior Shutters Completely Cover Corner Windows In San Jose

You can have several problems when you attempt to cover corner windows in San Jose. If one of your windows spans the two sides of the corner, blinds on each side can’t quite meet together and will leave a gap for sunlight to come in or get caught on each other. If you have individual windows that nearly meet at the corner, you might lack space for curtain panels in the corner.

Interior shutters address each of these concerns. Thanks to their special design, they fit all window shapes, sizes, and configurations–even corner windows. They have a solid hardwood or faux-wood frame built around your window with louvered shutter panels inside the frame. And every louvered shutter is custom-made to fit your window’s exact dimensions. For a single corner window, the frame’s two sides will meet right inside the corner and will leaving no gap. Your installer will build the frame to make plenty of space to tilt open the louvers without them touching in the edges. If you’re covering two corner windows, you never have to worry about where to hold back fabric drapes with your solid shutters.

Louvered shutters give incredible benefits as window coverings too. Both premium hardwood shutters and energy-efficient Polywood® shutters close tight to give you privacy and darkness whenever you want it. Shutters stop drafts as well–particularly Polywood shutters, which use weatherstripping for incredible energy efficiency. However, their most significant benefit is their stunning beauty. Unlike with fabric window treatments, interior shutters add architectural detail to your windows. They look timeless and elegant, even on awkward corner windows.

Window Shades Embellish Corner Windows With Colorful Style

The correct window shades can also be corner window treatments in San Jose. Fabric shades on both sides of a continuous corner window will nearly touch in the seam with just the tiniest line of light when closed. For two separate windows in a corner, inside-mounted shades will hang inside the window frames and can’t touch one another.

For the cleanest look, use flat roller shades. But cellular and Roman shades will do the job as well. Just make sure to get custom window shades. Ready-made window coverings won’t fit the unique dimensions of your corner window and will probably create unwanted spaces.

The most significant benefit of using a shade on your corner window is all the options out there. Window shades not only come in lots of varying styles, but each style comes in different materials, colors, and patterns. A custom window shade is an ideal solution when your corner window could use a little color to give it some flair.
