What Window Treatment Is Best For Arched Windows In Minneapolis?

January 06, 2017

Arched or eyebrow windows are rectangular with a rounded top. They are stunning in your interior, but their signature curving top makes it challenging to get window treatments for them. You don’t want to disguise their beautiful look with a square window treatment, but they might let in bright sun glare you want to steer clear of. So what are the top arched window treatments in Minneapolis? Custom louvered shutters are the right solution. They’ll fit your window’s unique shape and supply all the perks you expect from premium window treatments.

Interior Shutters Show Off 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 fit standard rectangles, plantation shutters can accommodate any window shape or size. This adaptability makes them ideal for eyebrow windows and any arched window. Your custom-fabricated shutter frame will follow the exact lines of the window, emphasizing the arch. The louvers can be positioned in a “sunburst” spreading out from the lower middle of the window or as horizontal rows to the top up to the top, depending on the window’s size. Both possibilities are completely functional and attractive.

You can find louvered shutters fabricated from hardwood or a strong wood synthetic like Polywood® shutters. Wood shutters are found in various popular colors to coordinate with your home. Polywood shutters give you incredible durability and are white, to match any aesthetic. They won’t deform in moisture-heavy kitchens and bathrooms or lose their color in windows with plentiful sunlight.

Interior Shutters Control Outside Sunlight And Drafts

You might keep your arched window uncovered, but most residents want and need some sort of window treatment in Minneapolis if the window allows sun glare and intense UV rays. Louvered shutters block light, heat, and drafts. Outside weather can’t penetrate their sturdy components. The small bit of sunlight that exists between the louvers produces only a slight glow. Their louvers also keep back most warmth and cold from your window. In fact, energy-smart Polywood shutters have innovative weatherstripping that prevents up to 30 degrees of temperature transfer.

Louvered Shutters On Elevated Windows Are Still A Breeze To Clean

You’ll frequently notice eyebrow windows on top of doors or other large windows. This placement causes them to be up high and perhaps difficult to get to. This loftiness presents a difficulty when cleaning other window coverings but not indoor shutters.

To clean an eyebrow window plantation shutter in Minneapolis, just use a duster on an extendable pole to reach the shutter. It’s easy to glide a duster between the louvers and into the corners to get every speck of dust. You’ll also appreciate how the shutter won’t swing or bend like blinds or shades.
