Octagon Window Covering Tips For Gainesville Homeowners05/23/2016Eric Ramsey When your window is an octagon, it sometimes is a challenge to find a window treatment in Gainesville 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 find a window treatment that fits your octagon window? Shutters For Octagon Windows Plantation shutters can be custom built to match the shape of your octagon windows. You can pick from painted synthetic wood shutters or stained wood plantation shutters to install on your octagon windows. Octagon shutters fit each line and angle of the octagon - so that your window shape pops. You’ll love the look of your octagon shutters, and how simple 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, keeping out UV rays. This reduces fading that can happen to your carpenting and furniture. When you have window film professionally installed on your octagon window, the edges of the film perfectly match the octagonal shape. You can purchase window film in various styles that provide some light control and privacy. If you don’t choose a type of light control, neighbors can look inside through the octagonal window. For ultimate privacy and control over light, combine window film with plantation shutters. Blinds, Shades, & Draperies For Octagon Windows You can order blinds, shades, and draperies and install them on your octagonal windows in Gainesville. However, it’s not something we recommend because they cover your window’s shape. Shades and blinds can provide privacy and light control when they’re closed, but they don’t work as well as a shutter on a special-shaped window. Octagon shutters give a custom look to your window that highlights its angles, and you can adjust the louvers for privacy and light.
