Picking window treatments for your New York City home appears simple enough. However, a couple types of windows can prove harder to cover, such as when the window panes which come together at a corner. If you need to cover corner windows in New York City, custom-crafted plantation shutters or window shades work better than other treatments. When made to fit your windows correctly, they look attractive and cover your windows how you need.

You can experience various issues when you try to cover corner windows in New York City. If one of your windows spans the two sides of the corner, blinds over each half won’t quite meet together and will leave a gap that lets the sun in in or catch on each other. If you have two windows that nearly meet inside a corner, you could lack space for curtain panels in the corner.

Louvered shutters solve all of these problems. Due to their special design, they fit every window shape, size, and configuration around your window with louvered shutter panels inside the frame. And all interior shutters are customized to fit your window’s exact dimensions. On a single corner window, the frame’s two sides will meet exactly inside the corner and will leaving no gap. Your professional installer will hang the frame to leave enough space to tilt open each louver without them bumping each other at the corner. If you’re covering two windows in a corner, you don’t have to worry about how to hold back fabric drapes with your hard shutters.

Interior shutters provide remarkable perks as window treatments too. Both premium hardwood shutters and energy-efficient Polywood® shutters close tightly to give you privacy and darkness when you desire. They keep out drafts as well–particularly Polywood shutters, which use weatherstripping for excellent energy efficiency. However, their best benefit is their stunning beauty. Unlike with fabric window treatments, interior shutters add architectural detail to your windows. They look classic and elegant, even on odd corner windows.

The correct window shades can also work as corner window treatments in New York City. Fabric shades on both sides of a continuous corner window will meet in the seam with just the smallest sliver of light when closed. On two corner windows, inside-mounted shades will hang inside the window frames and won’t touch each other.

For the neatest look, use smooth roller shades. But cellular and Roman shades will do the job too. Just be sure to purchase custom window shades. Off-the-shelf window coverings won’t fit the exact dimensions of your corner window and will probably have unwanted spaces.

The most significant advantage of dressing your corner window with a window shade is all the variety available. Window shades come in lots of different styles, and you’ll find each style in different materials, patterns, and colors. A custom window shade is an ideal option when your corner window could use a bit of color to dress it up.
