Whats The Best Window Treatment For Arched Windows In New York?

January 06, 2017

Arched or sometimes referred to as eyebrow windows are rectangular in size with a round top. They look striking in your interior, but their characteristic upper curve makes it a challenge to get suitable window treatments. You don’t want to disguise their delightful look with a typical square window treatment, but they might let in bright sun glare you don’t want in your line of vision. So what are the best arched window treatments in New York? Custom-made louvered shutters are the ideal option. They’ll fit your window’s unique shape and provide all the advantages you expect to get from top-end window treatments.

Louvered Shutters Highlight 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 unfortunate. While window shades and blinds generally come as rectangles, plantation shutters are suitable for any window size or shape. This unique ability makes them excellent for arched windows like your eyebrow window. Your custom-made shutter frame will follow the exact lines of the window, showing off the arch. Then, depending on the size of your window, the louvers might be situated in a “sunburst” spreading out from the bottom middle of the window or as horizontal rows reaching to the top. Both choices are completely operational and eye-catching.

You can get indoor shutters made from real wood or a strong wood synthetic like Polywood® shutters. Wood shutters are available in a variety of time-tested tints to harmonize with your home. Polywood shutters offer exceptional durability and are white, to go with any interior design. They won’t warp in humid kitchens and bathrooms or fade in windows with overflowing daylight.

Plantation Shutters Manage Drafts And Sunlight

You might keep your arched window untreated, but most families want and need some kind of window treatment in New York if the window brings in hot UV rays and sun glare. Louvered shutters block heat, light, and drafts. Outdoor weather can’t get through their solid components. The tiny bit of sunlight that exists between the louvers produces only a minimal glimmer. Their louvers also hold off most heat and cold from your window. In fact, energy-efficient Polywood shutters have exclusive weatherstripping that obstructs up to 30 degrees of thermal transfer.

Interior Shutters On High Windows Are Still Easy To Clean

You’ll typically see eyebrow windows above entryways or other sizeable windows. This orientation results in them being up high and perhaps problematic to access. This height poses a difficulty when cleaning various window treatments but not louvered shutters.

To clean an eyebrow window plantation shutter in New York, just use a duster on an extendable pole to access the shutter. It’s easy to slide a duster around the corners and between the louvers to collect every spot of dust. You’ll also notice how the shutter won’t swing or bend like blinds or shades.
