Octagon Window Treatment Tips For Southern California Homeowners05/23/2016Kimball Jones When your window is an octagon, it can be hard to find a window treatment in Southern California that offers privacy and controls light. And you don’t want a window treatment that hides the beautiful 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 manufactured to match the shape of your octagon windows. You can pick from stained wood plantation shutters or painted synthetic wood shutters to install on your octagon windows. Octagon shutters fit every corner and line of the octagon, so that your window shape stands out. You’ll love how octagon shutters look - and how easy it is to adjust the louvers to control for privacy and brightness. Shutters also make your windows more energy efficient. Our Polywood® shutters are 70% more energy efficient than normal wooden shutters and 1600% more energy efficient than aluminum blinds. Window Film For Octagon Windows Window film filters sunlight coming through the glass of the octagon window, keeping out harmful UV rays. This keeps your carpeting and furniture from fading. When you have window film professionally installed on your octagon window, the film perfectly matches the octagonal shape. You can choose window film in a selection of styles that provide some privacy and light control. If you don’t choose a type of light control, neighbors can look in 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 order blinds, shades, and draperies and have them mounted over your octagonal windows in Southern California. However, it’s not something we recommend because they hide your window’s shape. Even though blinds and shades can provide light control and privacy when closed, they don’t work as well as a shutter on a special-shaped window. Octagon shutters give the window a custom look that highlights its angles, and you can control its louvers for privacy and light.
