Octagon Window Treatment Ideas For Your Chicago House05/23/2016Richard Rampton If your window is an octagon, it can be difficult to find a window treatment in Chicago that provides privacy and controls light. And your window treatment shouldn’t hide the stunning octagon shape. So how exactly do you go about finding a window treatment that fits your octagon window? Shutters For Octagon Windows Plantation shutters can be custom built to match your octagon window’s shape. You can select from painted synthetic wood shutters or stained wood plantation shutters to cover your octagon windows. Octagon shutters fit every angle and line of the octagon, so that your window shape is accentuated. You’ll enjoy how your octagon shutters look - and how easy it is to tilt the louvers to control for brightness and privacy. Shutters also increase your window’s energy efficiency. Our Polywood® shutters are 1600% more energy efficient than aluminum blinds and 70% more energy efficient than normal wooden shutters. Window Film For Octagon Windows Window film filters sunlight coming in through the window’s glass, blocking UV rays. This minimizes fading that can happen to your carpenting and furniture. When your window film is professionally installed on your octagon window, the film perfectly matches the octagonal shape. You can order window film in a selection of styles to give you some privacy and light control. If you don’t choose a type of light control, neighbors can see inside through the octagonal window. For the most 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 mounted over your octagonal windows in Chicago. However, it’s not something we recommend because they hide your window’s beautiful shape. Blinds and shades can give you light control and privacy when they’re closed, but they aren’t as functional as a shutter on a window that’s a special shape. Octagon shutters give the window a custom look that highlights its angles, and you can control its louvers for privacy and light.
