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:
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!
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.
