Octagon Window Treatment Tips For Boston Homeowners05/23/2016Holly Perron If your window is an octagon, it might seem like a challenge to find a window treatment in Boston that provides light control and privacy. And your window treatment shouldn’t cover the stunning octagon shape. So how do you go about finding a window treatment that fits your octagon window? Shutters For Octagon Windows Plantation shutters can be custom built to match your window’s shape. You can choose painted synthetic wood shutters or stained wood plantation shutters to fit your octagon windows. Octagon shutters are made to fit each corner and line of the octagon - making your window shape stand out. You’ll love the look of your octagon shutters, and how simple it is to tilt the louvers 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 passing through the glass of the octagon window, restricting harmful UV rays. This minimizes fading that can happen to your carpenting and furniture. When you have window film professionally installed on your octagon window, the film lines up perfectly with the edges of the octagonal shape. You can order window film in different styles to give you some privacy and light control. If you don’t choose a type of light control, neighbors can look in through the octagonal window. For ultimate privacy and control over light, pair window film with plantation shutters. Blinds, Shades, & Draperies For Octagon Windows You can buy shades, blinds, and draperies and install them on your octagonal windows in Boston. However, it’s not something we recommend since they cover your window’s beautiful shape. Even though blinds and shades can provide privacy and light control when closed, they don’t function as well as a shutter on a window that’s a special shape. Octagon shutters give a custom look to your window that makes its angles stand out, and you can tilt its louvers for light and privacy.
