Octagon Window Covering Options For Raleigh Homeowners05/23/2016Blake Jarman When your window is octagon-shaped, it can be difficult to find a window treatment in Raleigh that offers privacy and controls light. In addition, the window treatment shouldn’t hide the unique octagon shape. So how exactly do you go about finding a window treatment for your octagon-shaped window? Shutters For Octagon Windows Plantation shutters can be custom manufactured to match your octagon window. You can choose painted synthetic wood shutters or stained wood plantation shutters to cover your octagon windows. Octagon shutters fit each corner and angle of the octagon, so that your window shape pops against the wall. You’ll love the look of your octagon shutters - and how you can easily tilt the louvers for privacy and brightness. Shutters also make your windows more energy efficient. 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 passing through the window, blocking damaging UV rays. This minimizes fading that can happen to your carpenting and furniture. Window film that is professionally installed on your octagon window, the edges of the film perfectly match the octagonal shape. You can choose window film in a selection of styles to give you some privacy and light control. Without these options, your neighbors can look inside through the octagonal window. For the most privacy and light control, pair window film with plantation shutters. Blinds, Shades, & Draperies For Octagon Windows You can buy shades, blinds, and draperies and mount them on your octagonal windows in Raleigh. But, we don’t recommend it because they cover the shape of your window. Shades and blinds can give you light control and privacy when 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 tilt its louvers for light and privacy.
