Octagon Window Covering Tips For Houston Homeowners05/23/2016Cory Cryer When your window is octagon-shaped, it can be difficult to find a window treatment in Houston that offers privacy and controls light. In addition, the window treatment shouldn’t cover the stunning octagon shape. So how do you find a window treatment that fits your octagon window? Shutters For Octagon Windows Plantation shutters can be custom made to match your window’s shape. You can pick from stained wood plantation shutters or painted synthetic wood shutters to cover your octagon windows. Octagon shutters fit each and every corner and line of the octagon, so that your window shape stands out. You’ll enjoy how your octagon shutters look - and how easy it is to adjust the louvers to control for privacy and brightness. Shutters also make your windows more energy efficient. Our Polywood® shutters are 1600% more energy efficient than aluminum blinds and 70% more energy efficient than traditional wooden shutters. Window Film For Octagon Windows Window film filters sunlight coming in through the window’s glass, restricting UV rays. This reduces fading that can happen to your carpenting and furniture. Window film that is professionally installed on your octagon window, the film lines up perfectly with the edges of the octagonal shape. You can order window film in a selection of styles that give some light control and privacy. Without these options, your neighbors can look inside through the octagonal window. For the best privacy and light control, pair window film with plantation shutters. Blinds, Shades, & Draperies For Octagon Windows You can order shades, blinds, and draperies and mount them on your octagonal windows in Houston. But, it’s not something we recommend because they hide the shape of your window. Even though blinds and shades can provide privacy and light control when closed, they aren’t as functional as a shutter on a window that’s a special shape. Octagon shutters give the window a beautiful look that makes its angles stand out, and you can tilt the louvers for light and privacy.
