Shutters have the ability to handle specialty shaped windows better than most other window coverings. Today’s post shows how shutters can be used to handle triangle shaped windows. Essentially, we can look at the posted window as 4 separate windows. 3 triangles at the corners, and a large rectangle at the bottom center. The client has no concern with the amount of light that enters the room, as the window faces west. So we decided to NOT cover the top window.

Triangle Window

This brings up an important point. If the window had been mine, I would have covered the window. I need it dark to sleep. But a good designer, which Kempler Design tries hard to be, will work toward the clients’ needs. Not my needs.

Back to this application. We had all kinds of technical things to work through. For example, we had to figure out how to cover the center section. That center window is about 10 feet wide. The client wanted to be able to hinge the panels off of the window. So, we considered waiving the warranty and having 2 panels swing left and 2 panels swing right. The manufacturer, Norman Window Fashions, would not allow this to be built. Then we considered putting in a track system to help support the panels, but this was outside of specs too. So, we came to the conclusion that T-posts would be the best solution.
