Window Treatments for Small Windows In Your Nashville Home

Stefano Diotaiuti

The big, stately window coverings you see in fancy HGTV homes or in interior design magazines are eye-catching, but those aren’t typical for every home. Homeowners in Nashville are usually more concerned with smaller windows – the type that those big bold drapes don’t work with.

When it comes to small windows, these are our picks for the best Nashville window treatments.

Custom Shutters for Small Windows

Small windows are a great fit for plantation shutters in Nashville. You might think we’re just favoring shutters, but shutters actually are one of the best choices for smaller windows. And there are a number of reasons why. Check them out!

Shutters Can Fit Smaller Windows No Matter the Size

Plantation shutters are custom-built to your specific windows. So no matter the size or shape of the windows in your home, shutters will fit – no exceptions.

Smaller windows run the gamut of styles: casement windows, eyebrow, rounded, octagon-shaped windows, and beyond. Custom shutters fit all of these styles, even the ones that other window treatments can’t.

Shutters Make Small Windows Look Bigger

Some Nashville homeowners aren’t huge fans of how small their windows are. We get it, but nothing’s forcing you to tolerate a window you don’t like. Custom shutters can add some much-needed size to a small window, even up to multiple inches with the right frame and mount. Of course, this won’t really make the window bigger, but it creates the illusion of a larger window.

Shutters Let You Manage Light in Small Windows

With smaller windows, light is usually an all-or-nothing issue. Either you’re covering the whole window, or it’s bare. That’s what you get with most window coverings such as shades or curtains. But interior shutters let you have a little more flexibility with your lighting, especially when you factor in styles like cafe shutters for small windows.

Custom Shades for Small Windows

The most important thing with shades for smaller windows is to go with custom shades. Most smaller windows aren’t standard sizes, so a lot of shades you find in stores will completely cover a window rather than framing it. So measure your windows precisely and look into custom shades that fit both your window and the space around it.

Shades might make smaller windows seem a little “boxier” and draw attention to their small size, so think a bit before using them for your windows.

Combining Window Treatments for Small Windows

What we’ve seen some smart Nashville homeowners do for their smaller windows is to combine window treatments. In fact, you can do this on any window in your home to the same effect. Combine a window treatment that sits on the frame like blinds, and hang curtains or drapes to either side to frame the window.

Combining coverings uses the space better, and makes your room’s flow a little more seamless.
