The Odd Ones Out: Window Treatments for Odd-Shaped Windows

At Strickland’s Blinds, Shades & Shutters, we believe that every shape is a good shape. Windows are no different! Have an odd-shaped window in your home that needs a professional touch? Look no further. When kids draw them, it’s just a box with four panes, but homeowners know better. Dream homes often come with dream windows, meticulously designed and measured to fit the unique spaces in your home.

Bay windows make up many folks’ ideal living spaces, being both classically comfortable and perfectly picturesque. For windows like these, look into outside windows. Cellular shades are also a great option, maximizing heating and cooling flow that can otherwise make these gorgeous windows prohibitively expensive to maintain.

Bow windows are a modern update to the classic bay window, curving several small panes of glass in a bow shape. Shades and blinds can be difficult to mount in a window casement of this shape, so consider sleek, modern drapery for this type of window. Sheer fabrics or bold prints can make this window space a perfect place to exhibit your style!

Available in many colors, Silhouette® Quartette® window shadings with EasyRise™ cord loop by Hunter Douglas are a smart choice for almost any decor.

Picture windows are perfect for rooms with a view, and it seems almost a shame to cover them. However, sunlight, privacy, and decor make some sort of treatment for these windows a necessity. Pleated and cellular shades do a fine job of offering privacy as-needed, while still maintaining the benefits of these lovely windows. Vertical blinds are another great option that allow for sun and moonlight to peek through, and for you to peek out at your beautiful view.

Sidelight windows are a common feature in modern homes, providing a small glimpse of sunlight on either side of the front door. Though these are small windows, and in many home remain uncovered, privacy and lighting are often concerns. Wood or faux wood mini-blinds can be the perfect option for these windows – making sure that the blind of your choice can be cut small enough to fit!
