Moving into your new home is such an exciting time. Your new home is a blank canvas and you get to decide where to put everything and how to decorate it. As you start looking at your windows thinking about coverings, you see it…that odd shaped window. You think to yourself “how do I cover that window?”
There are all kinds of odd or specialty windows available: full circle, half circle, eyebrow, octagon, trapezoid and palladium to name a few. Specialty windows can add elegance and character to your home. Sometimes these windows are in places that it may not be critical to cover, like a hallway, a kitchen or the living room. However, when you have these in a bathroom or bedroom, you may be more apt to cover them.
There are several window treatments available depending on your tastes and intended uses. If you want to block but still be able to let light in when you want, you can use blinds. Blinds come in all shapes and sizes and can be ordered to fit the exact dimensions of your window. You can also use cellular shades that help filter light as well as keep out the heat and cold. Curtains can be an option as well. You can install a track that allows you to attach a curtain that you can still open and close. If you’re looking for an option that lets in light but doesn’t allow others to see into your home, self-adhesive window films may be what you’re looking for. These self-adhesive films come in a frosted or matte finish, etched with different designs or some come in colorful designs that can resemble stained glass.
So you may have wondered how you were going to cover that odd shaped window before, but now you know there are several options available that will fit exactly what you’re looking for.
