Design Dilemma: Angle Top Windows

by Annalisa


NewStyle® hybrid shutters

Angle top windows are a common residential architectural feature that is a big challenge to treat. We received this photo from the Morgan’s, of Tigard, OR. They currently have a honeycomb shade that they installed because they couldn’t find an angle top solution at their local hardware store.

Before - Angle Window Dilemma

The Morgans are wondering how to functionally address this window and add some pizzazz and dimension to the wall. We’ve been put to the task of finding a solution to fill in the space where the window starts to angle and meets all of the Morgan’s criteria.

  • Focal point in the room
  • Completely cover the window
  • Protection against the strong afternoon sun
  • Family & Dog Friendly – no exposed cords
  • Some privacy

To stay in vain with the Morgan’s current styling, we have two fantastic solutions that will not only conceal the entire window, but also look beautiful:  Duette Architella® shades or NewStyle® shutters.

Hunter Douglas Duette Honeycomb Shades for Angled Windows

Duette® Architella® hybrid shutters

Duette Architella® shades are out of this world! They not only provide the highest level of energy efficiency of any window treatment with their innovative honeycomb-within-a-honeycomb design, but they also look very sleek and contemporary. Duette Architetlla® shades can be custom-made to fit in to the Morgan’s angle top scenario, but the only drawback is that they cannot be made without cords. I think that is going to be a deal-breaker…let’s take a look at the shutter option.

Hunter Douglas NewStyle Shutters for angled windows

NewStyle® hybrid shutters

NewStyle® hybrid shutters are classic, versatile, and child safe. They combine the great style of wood with the strength of modern day materials. NewStyle® shutters are offered in a wood grain or painted finish to complement any décor. The louvers can be adjusted to provide complete privacy or optimum view through and sunlight. More important, because shutters don’t operate with a cord they are extremely child safe. I see the Morgan’s falling in love with this window treatment because it fits all of their criteria and looks amazing.
