Covering Angled Windows

Common in contemporary homes, angled windows pose unique challenges in providing privacy and light control and keeping your home energy efficient. Hunter Douglas has taken on these challenges, offering a wide selection of products that enhance the beauty of your angled windows whether the shade is open or closed, operable or non-operable.

If your angle-top or angle-bottom windows let in a lot of direct light and therefore heat (i.e., east- or west-facing windows), cellular shades are a smart option. Energy-efficient Duette® Honeycomb Shades (shown above) trap air in distinct pockets to insulate your angled windows and help you save on energy costs. Not only do they help keep the heat out in the summer, but they also help keep your home warm in the winter. Duette Architella® Honeycomb Shades provide even greater energy efficiency with a unique cell-within-a-cell honeycomb construction.

Duette shades are available in the industry’s largest array of high-performing fabrics in both neutral tones and vibrant colors, as well as three different pleat sizes. They offer a distinctly beautiful, modern look to any window in your home.

Windows that stretch from floor to ceiling as they follow the roof line, in an A-frame house for example, are a stunning architectural element. It might seem daunting to cover these large panes of angled glass, but without window treatments, harsh sunlight can easily spill into your home and you won’t have the privacy or energy efficiency you desire.

Somner® Custom Vertical Blinds (available in fabric, vinyl and aluminum) and Vertical Solutions® Blinds (available in fabric and vinyl) are gorgeous choices for expansive, sloped windows. They’re offered in several opacity options—depending on how much light you want to let into your home—and their rotating vanes provide versatile light control and privacy.

Operating vertical blinds on angled windows is easy with our Vertical Motorized System. It allows you to rotate vanes open, closed or to your preferred angle. You also can traverse the angled window treatment with the touch of a button on a remote or wall-mount system. This means you never have to physically walk your blinds from one side to the other.

Shutters give your home a classic, elegant feel. Hunter Douglas offers several custom shutter designs with multiple benefits—they’re easy to clean, provide variable light control and privacy, offer insulation, and can easily cover angled windows.

NewStyle® Hybrid Shutters blend the beautiful look of genuine hardwood (with our special UltraGrain™ finish) and the strength of advanced materials. These shutters can perfectly cover angled, extended angle and two-panel angle top windows.

If you live in a hot, humid climate, or you want to install shutters on your angled windows in a laundry room or bathroom, Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ Shutters are an ideal choice. The Polysatin material is UV-resistant and prevents warping, cracking, chipping and peeling. If you’re looking to add the warmth of real hardwood to the angle top windows in your home office or living space where you spend a lot of time, our Heritance® Hardwood Shutters are made with 100% basswood or poplar hardwood for premium natural beauty.

Angled windows come in many variations, including right triangles, isosceles triangles and top/bottom-sloped windows. As with all specialty shapes, you should consult with your local Hunter Douglas specialist when deciding which product will work best for your angled windows.
