Octagon Window Covering Tips For San Diego Homeowners05/23/2016Tyson Williams If your window is octagon-shaped, it might seem like a challenge to find a window treatment in San Diego that gives privacy and light control. And your window treatment shouldn’t cover the unique octagon shape. So how do you go about finding a window treatment for your octagon-shaped window? Shutters For Octagon Windows Plantation shutters can be custom made to match your octagon window. You can select from painted synthetic wood shutters or stained wood plantation shutters to fit your octagon windows. Octagon shutters fit each angle and corner of the octagon, so that your window shape pops against the wall. You’ll enjoy how your octagon shutters look, and how easy it is to adjust the louvers to control for brightness and privacy. Shutters also increase your window’s energy efficiency. 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 window’s glass, restricting harmful UV rays. This prevents your furniture and carpeting from fading. When you have window film professionally installed on your octagon window, the film fits right on the octagonal shape. You can choose window film in a selection of styles that give some privacy and light control. If you don’t choose a type of light control, your neighbors can see inside through the octagonal window. For the most privacy and light control, use window film with plantation shutters. Shades, Blinds, & Draperies For Octagon Windows You can purchase blinds, shades, and draperies and install them on your octagonal windows in San Diego. However, we don’t recommend them because they hide your window’s shape. Shades and blinds can give you privacy and light control when closed, but they aren’t as functional as a shutter on a window that’s a special shape. Octagon shutters give a custom look to your window that highlights its angles, and you can control the louvers for privacy and light.
