What Window Treatment Should You Use For Arched Windows In Atlanta?

January 06, 2017

Arched or sometimes referred to as eyebrow windows are rectangular with a rounded top. They look lovely in your interior, but their signature curving top makes it challenging to find workable window treatments. You wouldn’t want to disguise their delightful look with a standard square window treatment, but they may let in uncomfortable sun glare you don’t want in your eyes. So what are the leading arched window treatments in Atlanta? Custom louvered shutters are the ideal solution. They’ll accommodate your window’s unique shape and supply all the advantages you want from first-rate window treatments.

Interior Shutters Emphasize Your Window’s Shape

Eyebrow and other kinds of arched windows are so appealing that concealing yours behind an unflattering window covering would be a pity. While window blinds and shades typically fit standard rectangles, louvered shutters are suitable for any window shape and size. This unique ability makes them ideal for eyebrow windows and any arched window. Your custom shutter frame will stick to the precise lines of the window, highlighting the arch. Then, based on the dimensions of your window, the louvers can be arranged in a “sunburst” fanning out from the lower middle of the window or as horizontal rows all the way to the top. Both choices are totally operable and appealing.

You can order louvered shutters constructed of hardwood or a solid wood substitute like Polywood® shutters. Wood shutters are available in various classic hues to blend with your interior. Polywood shutters give you incredible durability and are white, to suit any aesthetic. They won’t deform in humid bathrooms and kitchens or lose their color in sunny windows.

Louvered Shutters Manage Exterior Light And Drafts

You can keep your arched window open, but most homeowners prefer and need some sort of window treatment in Atlanta if that window allows sun glare and warm UV rays. Plantation shutters block light, heat, and drafts. Outside weather can’t get past their solid components. The tiny bit of sunlight that shows between the louvers creates only a slight gleam. Their louvers also keep back most warmth and cold from your window. Actually, energy-efficient Polywood shutters have patented weather sealing that prevents up to 30 degrees of thermal transfer.

Louvered Shutters On High Windows Are Still A Breeze To Clean

You’ll typically notice eyebrow windows above entryways or other large windows. This placement results in them being high on the wall and possibly hard to access. This elevation creates a challenge when cleaning other window coverings but not louvered shutters.

For an eyebrow window plantation shutter in Atlanta, simply use a duster you can extend to access the shutter. It’s no problem to fit a duster between the louvers and into the corners to get every speck of dust. You’ll also discover how the shutter won’t sway or contort like window blinds or shades.
