Octagon Window Covering Tips For Minneapolis Homeowners05/23/2016George Christ If you have an octagon-shaped, it sometimes is a challenge to find a window treatment in Minneapolis that gives privacy and controls light. And you don’t want a window treatment that hides the unique octagon shape. So how do you find a window treatment for your octagon-shaped window? Shutters For Octagon Windows Plantation shutters can be custom made 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 are made to fit each and every line and angle of the octagon - so that your window shape pops. You’ll love how octagon shutters look - and how you can easily tilt the louvers to control for privacy and brightness. Shutters also give you increased 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, keeping out UV rays. This keeps 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 order window film in different styles to give you some privacy and light control. Without these options, your neighbors can look inside through the octagonal window. For the most privacy and light control, use window film with plantation shutters. Blinds, Shades, & Draperies For Octagon Windows You can buy shades, blinds, and draperies and have them installed on your octagonal windows in Minneapolis. But, it’s not something we recommend because they cover the shape of your window. Shades and blinds can help you with light control and privacy when closed, but they don’t work as well as a shutter on a special-shaped window. Octagon shutters give the window a beautiful look that highlights its angles, and you can control its louvers for light and privacy.
