What Window Treatment Is Best For Arched Windows In Washington DC?

January 06, 2017

Arched or often called eyebrow windows are rectangular in size with a rounded top. They are lovely in your interior, but their signature long curved top makes it challenging to get workable window treatments. You wouldn’t want to disguise their beautiful look with a square window treatment, but they may let in bright sun glare you don’t want in your line of vision. So what are the leading arched window treatments in Washington DC? Custom-crafted louvered shutters are the ideal option. They’ll match your window’s exact shape and provide all the advantages you expect from top-end window treatments.

Interior Shutters Highlight Your Window’s Shape

Eyebrow and other types of arched windows are so beautiful that covering yours behind an unflattering window covering would be unfortunate. While window shades and blinds generally fit standard rectangles, interior shutters can accommodate any window shape and size. This versatility makes them excellent for your eyebrow window and all arched windows. Your custom-fabricated shutter frame will follow the specific lines of the window, showing off the arch. Then, depending on the size of your window, the louvers can be positioned in a “sunburst” spreading out from the window’s bottom middle or as horizontally aligned rows all the way to the top. Both choices are fully functional and eye-catching.

You can get plantation shutters constructed of hardwood or a rigid wood synthetic like Polywood® shutters. Wood shutters come in many popular tints to coordinate with your home. Polywood shutters provide incredible durability and are white, to go with any design. They won’t deform in humid kitchens and baths or fade in sunny windows.

Louvered Shutters Manage Exterior Drafts And Sunlight

You might leave your arched window uncovered, but most families prefer and need some type of window treatment in Washington DC if that window brings in sun glare and intense UV rays. Interior shutters control light, drafts, and heat. Outdoor elements can’t penetrate their sturdy construction. The little amount of light that shows behind the louvers produces only a slight glow. Their louvers also keep back most cold and warmth from your window. In fact, energy-smart Polywood shutters have innovative weather protection that blocks up to 30 degrees of temperature transfer.

Plantation Shutters On High Windows Are Still A Cinch To Clean

You’ll frequently see eyebrow windows above doors or other large windows. This placement causes them to be up high and perhaps hard to reach. This height creates a difficulty when cleaning many window coverings but not louvered shutters.

For an eyebrow window plantation shutter in Washington DC, just use a duster you can extend to reach the shutter. It’s no problem to glide a duster into the corners and between the louvers to collect every speck of dust. You’ll also notice how the shutter won’t sway or warp like blinds or shades.
