Octagon Window Covering Ideas For Detroit Homeowners05/23/2016Steve Hill When you have an octagon-shaped, it can be challenging to find a window treatment in Detroit that offers light control and privacy. And you don’t want a window treatment that hides the unique octagon shape. So how do you go about finding a window treatment for your octagon window? Shutters For Octagon Windows Plantation shutters can be custom built to match your octagon window’s shape. You can choose painted synthetic wood shutters or stained wood plantation shutters to fit your octagon windows. Octagon shutters are built to match each corner and angle of the octagon - accentuating your window shape. You’ll enjoy how your octagon shutters look - and how easy it is to tilt the louvers to control for brightness and privacy. Shutters also give you increased energy efficiency. Our Polywood® shutters are 70% more energy efficient than traditional wooden shutters and 1600% more energy efficient than aluminum blinds. Window Film For Octagon Windows Window film filters sunlight coming through the window’s glass, blocking harmful UV rays. This reduces fading that can happen to your carpenting and furniture. When your window film is professionally installed on your octagon window, the film perfectly matches the octagonal shape. You can purchase window film in a selection of styles that give some light control and privacy. Without these options, neighbors can see inside through the octagonal window. For ultimate privacy and control over light, combine window film with plantation shutters. Shades, Blinds, & Draperies For Octagon Windows You can purchase blinds, shades, and draperies and have them mounted over your octagonal windows in Detroit. But, it’s not something we recommend since they hide your window’s shape. Blinds and shades can give you privacy and light control when they’re closed, but they don’t work as well as a shutter on a window that’s a special shape. Octagon shutters give a custom look to your window that highlights its angles, and you can control the louvers for light and privacy.
