Hexagonal and Octagonal Window Coverings


It might seem obvious, but hexagonal windows have six sides while octagonal windows have eight. While unique window shapes like this are not as common as other shapes, Hunter Douglas offers multiple products to cover these unique shapes.


Shutters are an ideal choice for both shapes because they are operable, meaning you can tilt the horizontal louvers open and closed to provide your desired levels of light control and privacy. Heritance® Hardwood Shutters, NewStyle® Hybrid Shutters and Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ Shutters are available to cover hexagon and octagon windows. All shutters are custom-crafted with the highest standards of beauty and performance.


Pirouette® Window Shadings also are offered as hexagon and octagon window treatments. Although they remain non-operable in a closed position, they still feature the same aesthetic: artfully designed contoured fabric vanes in stunning fabric and color options.


Another choice for your hexagon or octagon windows is Duette® Honeycomb Shades. Not only does the insulating cellular shape provide enhanced energy efficiency (helping you save on energy costs while regulating your indoor temperature year-round), they also come in a large selection of fabrics, textures and colors. 


As with all specialty shapes, you should consult with your local Hunter Douglas specialist when deciding which product will work best for your hexagon or octagon windows.
