What to Put on Small Windows In Your Fort Lauderdale Home

Danielle Micich

The big, luxurious window treatments you see in fancy HGTV homes or in the pages ofinterior design magazines are breathtaking, but not every home has those kind of windows. Homeowners in Fort Lauderdale are usually more concerned with smaller windows – the type that those big bold drapes don’t work with.

If you’re worried about your small windows, here are our picks for the best Fort Lauderdale window treatments.

Plantation Shutters for Small Windows

Fort Lauderdale plantation shutters work wonders for small windows. Some may think we’re a little predisposed to shutters, but shutters actually are perfect for smaller windows. And there’s more than a few reasons why. Take a look!

Shutters Can Fit Smaller Windows No Matter the Size

Interior shutters are built specifically for your windows. So whatever size or shape the windows are, shutters will fit – without exception.

Smaller windows run the gamut of styles: casements, transom windows, circular, octagonal windows, and beyond. Custom plantation shutters can fit each and every one of them, even the shapes that other window treatments can’t.

Shutters Make Smaller Windows Look Bigger

Some Fort Lauderdale residents don’t like the fact that their small windows are, well, small. That’s ok, but you don’t have to put up with a window you wish looked different. Plantation shutters can add some much-needed size to a small window, sometimes up to multiple inches with the right frame and mount. Of course, this won’t actually make the window bigger, but it makes the window look bigger than it is.

Shutters Control Light in Small Windows

With smaller windows, light is all or nothing. Either you’re covering the window, or it’s bare. That’s how it is with most window treatments such as drapes or curtains. But custom shutters offer a bit more flexibility with how you control lighting, especially with cafe shutters for small windows.

Custom Shades for Small Windows

The big thing with shades for smaller windows is to shop for custom shades. The majority of small windows are in unusual sizes, so a lot of shades you buy off the rack will completely cover a window instead of framing it. So get the exact measurements of your windows and shop for custom shades that play to your window and your space’s strengths.

Shades might make smaller windows seem a little “boxier” and draw attention to their small size, so use caution when choosing window treatments for your home.

Combining Window Treatments for Small Windows

What we’ve seen some savvy Fort Lauderdale homeowners choose for their smaller windows is to use more than one kind of window treatment to make them more interesting and bigger. In fact, it doesn’t even have to be your small windows you do this with. Combine a window treatment that sticks to the frame like blinds, and hang curtains to either side to border the window.

Combining coverings makes better use of the space, and can help smooth out the flow of your room.
