Especially in newer builds, angled windows (such as hexagons, trapezoids, and triangles) are becoming more and more prevalent. But that presents the issue of how to cover them—with those angles, it might seem impossible. At Blinds & Designs here in Marin County, we’ve actually got plenty of great solutions that can help resolve some of the problems that come with untreated windows. Check them out below!
Lots of Sunlight
Windows that get a lot of direct sunlight (usually if they face south, east, or west) also get lots of harmful UV rays and can add unwanted heat. A great solution for an angled window that gets lots of sun is the energy-efficient Duette® Cellular Shade. This product is designed with honeycomb-shaped pockets that trap air at the window, creating a layer of insulation and helping to reduce damaging UV rays. You can find Duette in a wide assortment of fabrics and colors and in three different pleat sizes.
A classic design dating back to 1934, the A-frame home brings lots of architectural interest. However, its floor-to-ceiling angled windows might seem to present a challenge for window treatments. That’s where Somner® Custom Vertical Blinds and Vertical Solutions® Blinds can come in. You can find either one in a variety of materials as well as opacities, and they’re both well able to cover the large expanse of angled windows presented in this scenario. Plus, they’ll give you versatile privacy and light control through their rotating vanes.
Classic Style Custom Shades
For those who like the classic or traditional style, the elegance of shutters could be the right thing for angled windows. Heritance® Hardwood Shutters are made of genuine wood, which brings natural beauty into any space. They’re a good fit for home offices, living rooms, and any other room with an angled window. If you’re looking for something that presents a excepational durability, look no further than NewStyle® Hybrid Shutters, which look like genuine wood but are designed with long-lasting faux materials. They’re easy to care for, and they withstand direct light and heat without bowing, cracking, or fading. For angled windows in a humid room like a bathroom, consider Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ Shutters, which are designed to resist peeling, warping, and chipping. No matter the style you like, be sure to speak with one of our representatives to determine which product is right for your space and needs.
