Whats The Best Window Treatment For Arched Windows In Chicago?

January 06, 2017

Arched or sometimes referred to as eyebrow windows are rectangular with a round top. They look striking in your home’s interior, but their signature long curved top makes it difficult to get suitable window treatments. You don’t want to hide their amazing look with a typical square window treatment, but they might let in bright sun glare you don’t want in your face. So what are the best arched window treatments in Chicago? Custom louvered shutters are the perfect option. They’ll fit your window’s specific shape and supply all the advantages you expect to get from top-end window treatments.

Louvered Shutters Emphasize Your Window’s Shape

Eyebrow and other types of arched windows are so attractive that concealing yours behind an unflattering window covering would be unfortunate. While window blinds and shades regularly come as rectangles, interior shutters can accommodate any window shape and size. This unique ability makes them excellent for your eyebrow window and all arched windows. Your custom shutter frame will follow the exact lines of the window, showing off the arch. Then, based on the dimensions of your window, the louvers can be positioned in a “sunburst” spreading out from the bottom middle of the window or as horizontally aligned rows up to the top. Both configurations are completely operational and appealing.

You can find louvered shutters constructed of natural wood or a solid synthetic wood like Polywood® shutters. Wood shutters come in a variety of classic colors to harmonize with your home. Polywood shutters offer incredible durability and are white, to match any design. They won’t warp in moisture-heavy bathrooms and kitchens or discolor in windows with abundant sunlight.

Interior Shutters Control Exterior Drafts And Light

You can leave your arched window open, but most homeowners prefer and require some kind of window treatment in Chicago if that window lets in sun glare and warm UV rays. Plantation shutters control light, heat, and drafts. Outside weather can’t get through their rigid materials. The small amount of sunlight that shows behind the louvers creates only a slight gleam. Their louvers also keep away most cold and warmth from your window. Actually, energy-efficient Polywood shutters have patented weather protection that blocks up to 30 degrees of window temperature transfer.

Interior Shutters On Lofty Windows Are Still A Cinch To Clean

You’ll frequently find eyebrow windows on top of entryways or other large windows. This placement means they’re up high and perhaps problematic to get to. This loftiness poses a difficulty when cleaning many window products but not plantation shutters.

For an eyebrow window plantation shutter in Chicago, just use a duster on an extendable pole to reach the shutter. It’s no problem to slide a duster into the corners and between the louvers to collect every speck of dust. You’ll also notice how the shutter won’t move side to side or contort like blinds or shades.
