Large and uncommonly shaped windows bring a unique look into your home. These windows allow maximum natural light and, in many cases, added ventilation, making them a valuable addition to any room. However, there is one challenge that uniquely shaped or exceptionally large windows present. Finding window treatments to fit these windows can be difficult and expensive. At Modernize, we know curtains are an important aspect of completing the style of your home. In addition to this, window coverings can block drafts during the winter and the heat from the sun during the summer, increasing the energy efficiency of your home. Continue reading for five window treatments that you can use for your uniquely shaped windows.
Shutters from Peachtree Blinds can be custom made from real wood components to perfectly fit the special shape windows in your home including arch-top windows. Additionally, the bi-pass shutter tracks allow for use of plantation shutters for large windows and doors. These shutters allow for maximum control of light in privacy and are easily operated to open or close.
Window Tint or Window Film
Covering large or uniquely shaped windows provides a unique problem of blocking light from entering the home. Window tint or film can be cut custom to fit your window, and it blocks up to 99 percent of UV rays from entering your home. Known for reducing energy costs by up to 40 percent and providing added security, window tint is become the standard in new home construction.
Drapes serve two purposes in every home. First, they block out light, increasing energy efficiency and protecting you from UV rays. Secondly, they provided an aesthetically beautiful and customizable look for your home. Custom-made drapes from PeachTree Blinds can be created to fit the unique windows in your home.
Panels hang from above your window, straight to the floor. Their uniquely uniform shape allows them to be placed strategically to cover windows of all shapes and sizes. When panels are not being used, they can be pulled to the side and secured, allowing for light to enter the home. Custom panels can be created from various textiles, allowing you control of the design and light block capacity of the fabric.
Motorized Window Treatments
In many homes, large windows are difficult to cover and overcover because of the size of the window treatments. Motorized window treatments are easy to use, darkening a room or allowing light in with the push of a button. The motorized window treatments at Peachtree can be customized to fit various window sizes.
