Your arched windows add elegance and interest to your home, on the inside and the outside. The last thing you want to do is cover up that lovely curve with straight horizontal window treatments. You can get blinds and shades for arched windows that are custom fit to their exact curve. You don’t need to sacrifice style, material, or quality either. Milton Blinds has a range of solutions for arched windows that you can use to enhance the style and elegance of your home.
When you work with Milton Blinds you don’t have to sacrifice the exact look and style you want for your blinds or shades. We offer a range of window dressings in all kinds of materials and fabrics. You can get more functional shades that are thick and block more light or get lighter materials that add privacy without blocking much light at all. Your options include:
Arched windows tend to be quite high and out of the way. It can be challenging to open or close them. You can choose arched window blinds that open, or have part or all of the blind be immovable. Fully moveable arched blinds offer advantages, of course, including that you can control the light and privacy of your space. But, for some windows that are more decorative than functional, you may simply want a window dressing that is always closed.
Cutting straight blinds to fit a curve is more challenging than you might think, and it doesn’t usually result in a professional-looking blind or shade. Most DIY shade designs for curved windows that look good call for you to only cover the bottom part of the window, leaving the curved top exposed. While that might work in some circumstances, most people want their windows to be entirely covered, so that they can completely control the light, privacy, and heat in their home.
