What Window Treatment Should You Use For Arched Windows In San Antonio?

January 06, 2017

Arched or often called eyebrow windows are rectangular with a round top. They are stunning in your home’s interior, but their trademark long curved top makes it challenging to find viable window treatments. You wouldn’t want to conceal their amazing look with a typical square window treatment, but they may permit uncomfortable sun glare you want to avoid. So what are the top arched window treatments in San Antonio? Custom-crafted plantation shutters are the ideal choice. They’ll match your window’s specific shape and provide all the advantages you want from top-end window treatments.

Louvered Shutters Emphasize Your Window’s Shape

Eyebrow and other types of arched windows are so appealing that concealing yours behind an ill-suited window covering would be a pity. While window shades and blinds generally work for standard rectangles, interior shutters can fit any window shape and size. This unique ability makes them ideal for your eyebrow window and all arched windows. Your custom-fabricated shutter frame will stick to the exact lines of the window, emphasizing the arch. Then, based on the size of your window, the louvers may be positioned in a “sunburst” fanning out from the lower middle of the window or as horizontally aligned rows reaching to the top. Both configurations are totally functional and eye-catching.

You can get louvered shutters fabricated from real wood or a rigid synthetic wood like Polywood® shutters. Wood shutters are available in various classic tints to coordinate with your home. Polywood shutters offer incredible durability and are white, to go with any design. They won’t deform in moisture-heavy kitchens and baths or lose their color in sunny windows.

Plantation Shutters Block Outside Light And Drafts

You could keep your arched window open, but most homeowners prefer and require some type of window treatment in San Antonio if your window allows sun glare and hot UV rays. Plantation shutters effectively manage light, drafts, and heat. Outside weather can’t get through their sturdy materials. The tiny bit of light that exists between the louvers produces only a minimal glimmer. Their louvers also keep away most cold and warmth from your window. Actually, energy-conserving Polywood shutters have patented weather protection that blocks up to 30 degrees of temperature transfer.

Louvered Shutters On Elevated Windows Are Still Easy To Clean

You’ll typically find eyebrow windows over entryways or other larger windows. This orientation results in them being up high and potentially hard to access. This height poses a challenge when cleaning various window coverings but not indoor shutters.

For an eyebrow window plantation shutter in San Antonio, just use a duster you can extend to reach the shutter. It’s easy to glide a duster into the corners and between the louvers to collect every bit of dust. You’ll also notice how the shutter won’t sway or bend like blinds or shades.
