For any Toronto home that has a unique window shape, there are not many that are covered. Using drapes or curtains can be one way to help cover up these out of the ordinary window shapes and sizes, but they don’t tend to do the design of the window much justice.
For example, a half moon style window that is situated over an entry door may have a great deal of aesthetic appeal for a variety of reasons, but due to the curvature of the window, using traditional window coverings can become problematic and can even make the entire are look haphazard and less than ideal.
The same holds true for triangular windows. There is a solution that can work to ensure that the homeowner maintains their privacy and still manages to control the light that comes into the home through these unique shaped windows. Custom designed wood shutters.
Interior wood shutters are commonly thought of for basic window shapes and designs, but they can be ideal for a number of other situations, including covering those odd, unique shaped windows.
Being able to completely close off exposure on a window can benefit the homeowner in a number of ways. First, it can help to control the amount of light that gets into the home, which can help to protect furniture, keep the house cooler during the summer, and warmer during the winter.
Second, interior shutters provide privacy for the homeowner. Completely sealing off the windows ensures that no one will be able to see in, unlike with drapes, blinds, or shades that can leave gaps along the outside edge.
Finally, wood shutters help to add a layer of insulation to the windows, which helps to keep the cold air out better during the frigid Toronto winter months.
If you have a few windows, or just one, that is unique in its shape and/or size, consider interior wood shutters as a way to cover them and keep your home looking great all year round.
