Arch windows are a beautiful architectural feature that will add softness and interest to a room. Like other specialty windows, they can be a challenge when trying to cover them. Arch windows come in many different shapes and sizes, from half circles to flatter arches (eyebrow) with side legs. You won’t find well-fitting window treatments for arched windows at big box home improvement stores. For such unique windows, only custom window treatments will be suitable to enhance, not hide, their beauty.
Interior Shutters are a timeless decorating choice that are custom-fit to compliment your arch windows. To achieve a traditional, classic look with plantation shutters, they must be perfect. Choosing the right louver depth and color, precision measuring and installation of the shutter on your arch window takes skill and expertise. Which is why you hire Custom Window Fashions.
Many people believe shades must follow the arch of their windows, but this is not true. For a modern look, try straight shades cut to fit the arch of your windows. This application creates clean, modern lines while drawing attention to the eye-catching arched detail.
When thoughtfully designed and properly installed, draperies can look stunning around an arch window and spectacular inside a hall archway. Like all windows, draperies look best on arch windows when the right shape, fabric type, color, print, pleating, and coordinating, (or contrast) trim is selected to match the aesthetics of the room. Often we suggest using tightly tabbed arched tops secured to decorative finials or medallions outlining the arch for a stunning look.
The second objective of making soft window treatments look great on arch windows is in knowing exactly how to install them. They must be placed in the precise shape, height, and width so that the arch is showcased, not hidden. Attentive design and proper installation are two of the main reasons to work with a window treatment expert, especially when working with a such a unique window type.
