Octagon Window Covering Ideas For Charlotte Homeowners05/23/2016Neil Blackwelder If you have an octagon window, it can be challenging to find a window treatment in Charlotte that gives light control and privacy. And you don’t want a window treatment that covers 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 made to match your window’s shape. You can pick from stained wood plantation shutters or painted synthetic wood shutters to install on your octagon windows. Octagon shutters are built to match every corner and angle of the octagon - accentuating your window shape. You’ll love how octagon shutters look - and how simple it is to adjust the louvers to control for brightness and privacy. Shutters also give you increased energy efficiency. Our Polywood® shutters are 70% more energy efficient than normal wooden shutters and 1600% more energy efficient than aluminum blinds. Window Film For Octagon Windows Window film filters sunlight passing through the window’s glass, restricting harmful UV rays. This reduces fading that can happen to your carpenting and furniture. When you have window film professionally installed on your octagon window, the film lines up perfectly with the edges of the octagonal shape. You can choose window film in a selection of styles that give some light control and privacy. Otherwise, your neighbors can look in through the octagonal window. For the best privacy and light control, combine window film with plantation shutters. Blinds, Shades, & Draperies For Octagon Windows You can purchase shades, blinds, and draperies and have them installed over your octagonal windows in Charlotte. However, we don’t recommend it since they hide your window’s shape. Even though blinds and shades can help you with privacy and light control when closed, they don’t function as well as a shutter on a special-shaped window. Octagon shutters give a custom look to your window that highlights its angles, and you can adjust its louvers for privacy and light.
