Sash windows are a lovely addition to any home and may quickly become the room’s focal point. However, despite their unique features and visually pleasant traits, Sash windows can be challenging to dress. While many homeowners need privacy and sun protection at times, they do not want their sashes to be obscured.

So, how do you properly outfit your sash windows to look equally attractive and mix into your home’s décor and style? We’ve collected a list of the most acceptable curtain styles for your sash windows to assist you.

Full Height shutters

Full Height shutters are custom-made shutters that cover the entire window space from top to bottom and open independently, allowing you complete access to the window. They’re perfect if your window is single-glazed or overlooks a high-noise region, as they can help insulate your room and lower outside noise while giving you complete control over light and privacy.

Tier on Tier shutters

Tier-on-Tier shutters are the way to go if you have an area that requires additional versatility. They open in two easy-to-operate pieces, allowing you to control the top and bottom separately. These shutters are ideal for all living spaces and restrooms, with a creative design twist that helps retain seclusion without blocking natural light.

Café shutters

If you don’t want to cover your entire window, a café shutter covering only the lower half of the window provides privacy while allowing light and views to pass through. Depending on the type of sash window, these continental-style shutters will likely still offer you access to your sash window, allowing you to operate the window quickly. Café shutters can also be customized with louvers or solid panels, allowing you to express yourself.

Solid shutters

Solid shutters are a good option if you want to go for a more traditional style. These eye-catching shutters come in various attractive patterns and colors and give unequaled privacy and light blockage when you need it. In addition, solid panels further reduce outside noise. Open them to enjoy your sash windows throughout the day, then close them before bed for a peaceful night.


What are the best sash window blinds?

Roman Blinds

Even though Roman blinds are one of the oldest types of blinds, they have benefited from technological advancements. The soft folds work well with a sash window’s construction, and their simplicity matches their ability to manage the light flow. You can choose from 70 various styles and over 260 different fabrics, so no matter what style or setting you to have, you’ll be able to find a material to match it.

Blackout Solution  

For a complete blackout solution, pair your shutters with Duette® DimOut blinds, one of our specialists. Our conventional Duette blinds are elevated in our DimOut offering with a layer of Mylar foil within the cell, which gives the blind thermal properties. When used with our well-designed shutters, the foil reduces light flow and ensures complete blackout for a restful night’s sleep.

Blinds with a silhouette

Silhouette blinds have the long-distance visual look of a traditional Venetian blind while also providing a host of modern features, such as efficiently regulating light and privacy thanks to the unique fabric engineering that diffuses light around the room.
