What Window Treatment Should You Use For Arched Windows In Las Vegas?

January 06, 2017

Arched or often called eyebrow windows are rectangular in size with a round, semi-circle top. They are lovely in your home, but their signature upper curve makes it a challenge to locate workable window treatments. You wouldn’t want to disguise their delightful look with a normal square window treatment, but they may let in bright sun glare you don’t want in your face. So what are the best arched window treatments in Las Vegas? Custom interior shutters are the ideal choice. They’ll match your window’s specific shape and provide all the benefits you expect to get from first-rate window treatments.

Interior Shutters Show Off Your Window’s Shape

Eyebrow and other arched windows are so attractive that covering yours behind an unflattering window covering would be unfortunate. While window shades and blinds regularly come as rectangles, louvered shutters can accommodate any window size or shape. This versatility makes them perfect for arched windows like your eyebrow window. Your custom shutter frame will adhere to the exact lines of the window, showing off the arch. The louvers can be arranged in a “sunburst” fanning out from the lower middle of the window or as a “louvered arch” of horizontal rows reaching to the top, depending on the window’s size. Both configurations are totally operable and attractive.

You can find plantation shutters fabricated from real wood or a solid wood synthetic like Polywood® shutters. Wood shutters are available in a variety of popular hues to coordinate with your home. Polywood shutters provide incredible durability and are white, to go with any interior design. They won’t warp in moisture-heavy kitchens and baths or lose their color in windows with abundant sunlight.

Plantation Shutters Manage Light And Drafts

You could keep your arched window open, but most residents like and need some sort of window treatment in Las Vegas if that window brings in sun glare and hot UV rays. Plantation shutters effectively manage light, drafts, and heat. Outside weather can’t get past their solid construction. The small allowance of light that shows between the louvers generates only a slight glimmer. Their louvers also hold off most warmth and cold from your window. In actuality, energy-conserving Polywood shutters have patented weatherstripping that prevents up to 30 degrees of window temperature transfer.

Louvered Shutters On Elevated Windows Are Still A Cinch To Clean

You’ll frequently see eyebrow windows above doors or other sizeable windows. This orientation means they’re up high and perhaps difficult to get to. This loftiness presents a challenge when cleaning various window treatments but not plantation shutters.

When cleaning an eyebrow window plantation shutter in Las Vegas, merely use a duster you can extend to get up to the shutter. It’s no problem to fit a duster into the corners and between the louvers to collect every spot of dust. You’ll also notice how the shutter won’t swing or warp like blinds or shades.
