Top 5 Recommendations for Arch Top Windows

Tips & Resources

Arch Top Windows

Arch top windows add a level of customization to your home and are coveted in the new home construction industry. More often than not, these beloved arch window details cause frustration to homeowners once they move into their new home and realize that the typical window covering solutions are not always aesthetically pleasing and functional for their arch windows. We have compiled our Top 5 recommendation on how to cover these arch top windows below:

1. Cellular

Cellular shades are the most energy efficient window covering solution. The construction of the cell forms an air pocket, which acts as an additional barrier of insulation for letting heat in or the cool of the air conditioning out. Cellular shades are available in a variety of colors and are a perfect solution for arch top windows!

2. Shadings

Hunter Douglas’ Nantucket Shadings are a sophisticated product that function on vane system. The tilt function allows for maximum light control. Fabric vanes between two sheer fabrics can be adjusted from soft light to complete privacy. The bold horizontal vanes can help create a modern feel even when in an arched window!

3. Top Treatment

Top treatments like the upholstered valance pictured below, are a stylish way to cover the top arch of the window. Top valance treatments are ideal when all other windows except the arch are square top and receiving a standard blind, shade, or shutter. You are able to keep the matching square top standard blind, shade, or shutter for your arched window by covering only the arched portion with an outside mount valance. Valances are offered in numerous fabrics and styles.

4. Tableaux

Tableaux is a faux iron decorative grill that provides a beautiful finishing detail to any arch or eyebrow window. Tableaux grills are made from recycled wood fiber and formaldehyde-free adhesive. They are available in a wide variety of finishes and are lightweight, which makes for an easy install! Tableaux grills are also available with optional solar screens.

5. Shutters

Our shutters are available in wood, vinyl, or a composite of both PVC and wood. Shutters are described as furniture for your windows and are one of the only window treatments that provide a return on investment when it comes to resale. Since shutters are made to custom fit each and every window, they are a perfect solution for any arch window to achieve the built-in look.
