How To Cover Corner Windows In Minneapolis

March 28, 2022

Selecting window treatments for your Minneapolis house should be easy enough. But a few windows can prove more difficult to cover, such as when the window panes that come together in a corner. If you need to cover corner windows in Minneapolis, window shades or custom-made plantation shutters work better than other treatments. When made to fit your windows correctly, they look chic and cover your windows like you need.

Beautiful Louvered Shutters Fully Cover Corner Windows In Minneapolis

You can run into multiple issues when you try to cover corner windows in Minneapolis. If one of your windows spans both sides of the corner, blinds over each side can’t quite meet together and will leave a gap that lets the sun in or catch on each other. If you have two windows that nearly touch inside a corner, you might lack space for drapes in the corner.

Plantation shutters solve all of these issues. Due to their unique design, they fit all window sizes, shapes, and configurations–including corner windows. They have a solid hardwood or faux-wood frame built around your window with louvered shutter panels inside this frame. And every louvered shutter is customized to fit your exact window dimensions. For a single window in a corner, the frame’s two sides will meet exactly inside the corner , leaving no gap. The installer will construct the frame to leave plenty of room to open the louvers without them touching at the edges. If you cover two windows in a corner, you never have to worry about how to pull back fabric drapes with solid shutters.

Interior shutters give phenomenal advantages as window treatments too. Both hardwood shutters and faux-wood Polywood® shutters shut tightly for privacy and darkness when you desire. Shutters stop drafts as well–particularly Polywood shutters, which use weatherstripping for excellent energy efficiency. However, their greatest benefit is their superior beauty. Interior shutters add architectural detail to your windows that you won’t get with fabric window treatments. They look timeless and sophisticated, even on frustrating corner windows.

Window Shades Dress Up Corner Windows With Colorful Fashions

Certain window shades can also work as corner window treatments in Minneapolis. Fabric shades on each side of a continuous corner window will nearly touch at the seam with only the tiniest crack of light when closed. For two separate windows in a corner, inside-mounted shades will fit inside your window frames and won’t touch each other.

For the tidiest look, use slim roller shades. But Roman and cellular shades will do the job too. Just make sure to purchase custom window shades. Ready-made window treatments won’t match the exact dimensions of your corner window and will likely have gaps that you don’t want.

The biggest perk of using a shade on a corner window is all the variety out there. Window shades come in lots of varying styles, and you’ll find each style in different materials, colors, and patterns. A customized window shade is a great choice when your corner window needs a bit of color to give it some flair.
