What Window Treatment Should You Use For Arched Windows In Salt Lake City?

January 06, 2017

Arched or sometimes referred to as eyebrow windows are rectangular in shape with a round top. They are striking in your interior, but their trademark long curved top makes it a challenge to get workable window treatments. You would not want to disguise their amazing look with a standard square window treatment, but they can allow bright sun glare you don’t want in your eyes. So what are the leading arched window treatments in Salt Lake City? Custom-made plantation shutters are the perfect option. They’ll match your window’s specific shape and supply all the advantages you expect to get from premium window treatments.

Plantation Shutters Highlight Your Window’s Shape

Eyebrow and other arched windows are so beautiful that covering yours behind an unflattering window covering would be a pity. While window blinds and shades generally come as rectangles, interior shutters can fit any window shape and size. This versatility makes them excellent for your eyebrow window and all arched windows. Your custom-made shutter frame will adhere to the exact lines of the window, emphasizing the arch. Then, depending on the size of your window, the louvers might be positioned in a “sunburst” radiating from the bottom middle of the window or as a “louvered arch” with horizontal rows of louvers all the way to the top. Both configurations are completely operable and eye-catching.

You can get plantation shutters fabricated from natural wood or a rigid wood synthetic like Polywood® shutters. Wood shutters come in various classic colors to coordinate with your decor. Polywood shutters provide long-lasting durability and are white, to suit any interior design. They won’t distort in humid kitchens and bathrooms or discolor in windows with plentiful sunlight.

Plantation Shutters Block Drafts And Light

You could leave your arched window open, but most residents prefer and need some kind of window treatment in Salt Lake City if your window brings in intense UV rays and sun glare. Louvered shutters effectively manage light, heat, and drafts. Outside elements can’t get through their sturdy components. The little bit of outside light that exists between the louvers generates only a faint gleam. Their louvers also keep away most cold and warmth from your window. In fact, energy-smart Polywood shutters have innovative weatherstripping that prevents up to 30 degrees of thermal transfer.

Interior Shutters On High Windows Are Still A Cinch To Clean

You’ll typically notice eyebrow windows on top of doorways or other larger windows. This orientation means they’re high on the wall and possibly hard to reach. This height presents a difficulty when cleaning other window treatments but not louvered shutters.

When cleaning an eyebrow window plantation shutter in Salt Lake City, merely use a duster you can extend to access the shutter. It’s easy to fit a duster around the corners and between the louvers to get every bit of dust. You’ll also appreciate how the shutter won’t swing or bend like shades or blinds.
