Choosing window treatments to go in your Chicago home should be simple enough. However, a couple types of windows can prove more difficult to dress, like when the window panes which come together at a corner. If you need to cover corner windows in Chicago, custom-made plantation shutters or window shades work better than other treatments. When made to fit your windows correctly, they look chic and cover your windows how you need.

Gorgeous Interior Shutters Totally Cover Corner Windows In Chicago

You can experience a few issues when you attempt to cover corner windows in Chicago. If you have a single window that spans the two sides of the corner, blinds over each side can’t fit neatly together and will leave a gap that lets the sun in in or get caught on each other. If you have separate windows that almost meet at the corner, you could not have for curtains in the corner.

Interior shutters solve all of these problems. Thanks to their unique construction, they fit every window shape, size, and configuration around your window with louvered shutter panels inside the frame. And all interior shutters are customized to fit your exact window dimensions. For a single window in a corner, the frame’s two sides will meet perfectly inside the corner with no gap. Your professional installer will build the frame to make enough space to tilt open each louver without them touching in the edges. If you cover two corner windows, you never have to worry about where to pull back fabric drapes with your hard shutters.

Interior shutters give incredible benefits as window coverings too. Both hardwood shutters and durable Polywood® shutters shut tight to give you darkness and privacy whenever you desire. They block drafts too–particularly Polywood shutters, which have weatherstripping for excellent energy efficiency. However, their best benefit is their eye-catching beauty. Louvered shutters add architectural detail to your windows that you won’t get with fabric window treatments. They look classic and sophisticated, even on awkward corner windows.

Window Shades Embellish Corner Windows With Colorful Style

The right window shades can also work as corner window treatments in Chicago. Fabric shades on both sides of a continuous corner window will nearly touch in the seam with only the most insignificant crack of light when closed. With two corner windows, inside-mounted shades will fit within the window frames and won’t touch each other.

For the neatest look, use slim roller shades. But cellular and Roman shades will do the job too. Just make sure to get custom window shades. Store-bought window coverings won’t match the exact dimensions of your corner window and will likely create spaces that you don’t want.

The most significant advantage of covering your corner window with a window shade is all the choices you have. Window shades not only come in many varying styles, but you’ll find each style in different colors, patterns, and materials. A custom window shade is a great choice if your corner window could use a little color to give it some flair.
