Window Dressing Tips for Trapezoid Windows

  • Vertical Blinds

These blinds are often a great choice for trapezoid windows. The slant of the louvres can be adjusted according to your need for light and privacy. The key is to choose a vertical blind with slanted tracks at the top that fits the dimension of your window. You may have to order for custom-made vertical blinds to get the exact match. The benefit of choosing this kind of blinds is that you have an absolute control on the tilt.

  • Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters are usually custom-made to fit any kind of window which makes them a great choice for oddly shaped windows. The louvres are fully functional and can be adjusted according to your light or privacy requirements. If they are made of wood, they can be coloured to complement your home interiors. Moreover, a classic choice like plantation shutters pairs well with trapezoid windows enhancing its beauty, creating a perfect look for a countryside home.

  • Wood Blinds

The warm tone of wood has an exceptional appeal to the eyes which make it a classic choice for any type of window. Depending on the angle of the window, the wood blinds can be partially raised or not at all. But they can be tilted to let in enough light. Often, only the louvres covering the rectangular part of the window is operable while the covering of the angled top is fixed.  Choosing a ready-made wood blind is again difficult for such windows, and ordering for custom-made designs is your best choice.

Cellular shades are a popular choice, but they are inoperable when installed on a trapezoid window. If you do not have any issue with a permanent window covering for the top slanted part of such windows, this is a beautiful choice. It can be raised to the top of the rectangular portion of the trapezoid window. They are available in varied colours and can be easily matched with other parts of your interior décor. Another advantage of this particular window dressing is that one does not need a traced template of the window to find the right match.
