4 Ways to Dress Up Your Arched Windows


How To Dress Your Arched Windows

Arched windows

have forever been viewed as beautiful architectural details that are impossible to treat with window treatments. We agree that arched windows are in fact beautiful architectural touches that add a sense of customization and uniqueness to a home; however we must disagree that they are impossible to treat! Over the years, we have helped countless homeowners treat their arched windows in ways that they never knew were possible! Throughout this article, we are going to list out our four favorite ways to dress up your arched windows.

1. Drapery

Drapery is another way to dress up your arched windows. By adding drapes to a window topped with an arch, you can simply have the top of the drapes moved up so that they are above the arch. This accomplishes two things that most homeowners with arched windows are often hoping to accomplish. It brings the eye up, making your ceilings and windows feel taller and making your entire room feel more open. Doing so also allows you to keep the arch visible while the drapes are opened.

2. Shades

Window shades are our third favorite product for dressing arched windows. Shades are one of the most modern window treatment options available. They are sleek and simple, yet extremely practical. Shades can add privacy and shade to your home, making them an excellent choice for windows that face east or west to block out the sun and the heat, or for those windows that face the front of the home on a busy street to add some much needed privacy. At Arizona Blinds, shades can be completely customized, allowing you to pick and choose the exact shades you want for your home. They can also be customized to fit perfectly into your arched windows!

3. Shutters

Shutters are completely customizable, meaning that we can actually cut shutters to fit perfectly into your arched window, no matter the size or shape! We particularly love shutters on arched windows for two reasons. For one, they allow the arch to still be seen, keeping your home’s detail intact and in plain view. Secondly, shutters are extremely practical. Even arched windows need to be closed off and opened to let in or block out the sunlight from time to time. Shutters allow you to have full control over all of the light that comes into your home.

4. Blinds

Blinds are the fourth way to dress up your arched windows. Blinds can be completely customized in order to fit nearly any window shape and size. With the use of a simple cord, blinds are easy to open up and down, or angle a certain direction to let in more or less light. This is extremely important and helpful for those windows that reach unreachable heights and we all know arched windows tend to be much higher than non-arched windows.
