Shutter Styles for Small Windows

When dealing with small windows, we recommend avoiding cafe-style shutters since they work best for large windows, and similarly with Tier-on-tier shutters, as you won’t have enough window surface area to work with.

Beyond that, you can choose solid shutters, which help improve your privacy and block out as much of the sun’s light as possible. Otherwise, Full height shutters are a perfect fit for small windows. The simple, clean lines of this style will not over-complicate a small window.
