Casement windows provide you with a fuller view of the outdoors and more fresh air. They’re often used in rooms that need more ventilation, like a kitchen or bathroom, or to complement bay windows. While they’re easy to open, that pesky crank can get in the way of your window treatments.
When it’s time to update those window treatments, our Louver Shop design consultants can help. We’ve never met a window we couldn’t cover, including casement windows. Our window treatments are custom manufactured to fit your windows, including those with cranks. You can learn more by scheduling a free consultation with us. There’s never any pressure to buy, just access to expert advice at no cost.
In the meantime, here are just a few of the best window treatments for casement windows.
1. Plantation Shutters
Whether you choose real wood or durable polymer, plantation shutters provide the ultimate in light control and insulation. Because this window treatment is permanently installed, you might think that a crank would interfere with the frame or louver. But that’s not the case! At Louver Shop, we create and manufacture custom shutters just for your windows. That means we can accommodate your home’s unique windows or doors, including arched windows, doorknobs and cranks. That way, you’ll still enjoy all the benefits of your interior shutters while still having full access to your window’s crank.
2. Roman Shades
If you love curtains but don’t love how they are heavy and difficult to move, Roman shades are a great alternative for accommodating casement windows. Especially if your casement windows accompany a bay or picture window. These shades hang flat when closed and fold into neat pleats when raised. And there’s a wide range of styles to choose from, including energy-saving honeycomb shades and woven wood shades. With Louver Shop, your shades will look and operate just like you want them to. By adding the PowerView® smart operating system, moving your custom shades will be a breeze with a tap of your phone.
3. Honeycomb Shades
If your casement windows are in a room you spend a lot of time in, like your bedroom or living room, comfort is a must. Since your windows are one of the main sources of energy loss in your home, choosing an energy-efficient window treatment like honeycomb shades is important. These shades have cells that trap air at the window to keep indoor temperatures stable and your energy bills in check. And with a variety of easy operating systems, like cordless LiteRise® or PowerView, you’ll have quick access to the crank when you want to open or close your window.
4. Roller and Solar Shades
If you have casement windows in your bathrooms or kitchen, a simple style like roller and solar shades is a great fit. With hundreds of fabrics and a range of opacities to choose from, you’ll be able to find the right look to complement your home. And they’ll be easy to raise and lower, thanks to six operating systems that include cordless and PowerView customization options. As an added bonus, they’re even easier to clean with a vacuum, duster or damp cloth.
