Window Treatment Solutions for Casement Windows

 treatments for casement windows

A casement window is a window that is attached to its frame by one or more hinges. Casement windows are hinged at the side and are opened with a crank, which is placed around hand height or at the bottom and serves as a window lock. This important aspect is vital to keep in mind when shopping for window treatment styles. Fashion and functionality can combine with solutions from Hirshfield’s. Shannon, the Hirshfield’s Shop at Home resident window treatment expert, shares how to select window treatments featuring style and accessibility for  casement windows.

Tips for Selecting Window Treatments for Casement Windows

  • Take a look at where your screens are located and how easy are they to remove.
  • Check for mounting depth for an inside mount application.  Typically in a casement window, the screen is toward the interior of the home and can unclip from the window for cleaning.  This can pose an issue when looking at certain products.  A window treatment expert can help determine if there is enough height clearing for the bracket, and or depth for an inside mount.
  • You are able to use the full range of window treatment products offered for casement windows, which allows you to select from different opacity options, features and benefits.  A cordless lift feature works well. By having a cordless lift, the chance of the window treatment getting caught on the crank is minimal, as you are controlling the shade yourself.
  • Don’t forget about the screens and cranks! Both of these can cause trouble for an inside mount application. The cranks can catch on the back of the window treatment when raising or not allow the treatment to lay properly when closed. There are t-handles available. T-handles, or butterfly cranks, allow for a smaller handle that will sit closer to the window and help allow for a better fit of the window treatment.

We’ve Served Countless Satisfied Customers Over Generations

I have come to rely on the staff at Hirshfield’s Design Resource for their fabulous customer service and variety of products. The service is always friendly, timely and professional.

As a designer, their advice on window treatments is forever appreciated, and they are always able to show me something new in the displays and samples. They provide quick and accurate estimates, measurements and suggestions when I am struggling with a budget. The final product and installation has been nothing but flawless on every project.

I truly value what they continue to bring to our design community!

Want to give a shout out to Madi. Madi took a pretty awful experience and made it right for us. We had ordered cordless blinds and over half of them did not work right or hang right. Madi helped us return all the blinds and reordered a new product for us which we are very happy with. Madi was persistent in helping us get the issues we experience resolved.

She is always so warm and friendly and definitely puts her customers first. Thanks Madi you are a gem! Also want to add that my overall experience with Hirshfield's in St. Cloud has been an excellent experience. They made things right and put their customers first!

Greg is amazing! We have worked with him throughout the years on both existing homes and new builds and we could not be happier. One of the things I appreciate about Greg is that he gets us to really think about how we will use our space, not just now but in the future when the kids get older. This has honestly has saved us from making some pretty big design mistakes. Finding durable fabrics and pieces is important to us while we have a preschooler running around, yet on the other hand, our teens have a different use for the space.

He is able to make it all work together seamlessly by understanding the space and its function. He has a fresh and distinctive feel to his work and builds in a variety of styles. I HIGHLY recommend working with Greg out of the gate, you will not be sorry. I honestly don't know what we do without his help;)
