What Window Treatment Is Best For Arched Windows In Miami?

January 06, 2017

Arched or sometimes called eyebrow windows are rectangular in size with a rounded top. They look lovely in your home, but their signature curving top makes it challenging to locate window treatments to accommodate them. You don’t want to disguise their amazing look with a square window treatment, but they may let in uncomfortable sun glare you don’t want in your eyes. So what are the top arched window treatments in Miami? Custom plantation shutters are the right choice. They’ll accommodate your window’s specific shape and provide all the perks you expect from top-end window treatments.

Plantation Shutters Show Off Your Window’s Shape

Eyebrow and other types of arched windows are so attractive that hiding yours behind the wrong window covering would be a pity. While window blinds and shades typically come as rectangles, louvered shutters can fit any window shape and size. This versatility makes them ideal for eyebrow windows and any arched window. Your custom-made shutter frame will stick to the specific lines of the window, showing off the arch. Then, contingent on the dimensions of your window, the louvers may be positioned in a “sunburst” spreading out from the lower middle of the window or as horizontally aligned rows up to the top. Both choices are completely operable and appealing.

You can order indoor shutters made from real wood or a solid wood substitute like Polywood® shutters. Wood shutters come in many classic colors to harmonize with your home. Polywood shutters offer exceptional durability and are white, to match any interior design. They won’t distort in humid kitchens and bathrooms or fade in sun-filled windows.

Plantation Shutters Control Exterior Drafts And Sunlight

You can keep your arched window open, but most homeowners like and need some sort of window treatment in Miami if your window brings in warm UV rays and sun glare. Interior shutters effectively manage light, heat, and drafts. Exterior conditions can’t penetrate their rigid materials. The little amount of outside light that exists between the louvers generates only a faint gleam. Their louvers also keep back most cold and warmth from your window. In actuality, energy-efficient Polywood shutters have patented weather sealing that prevents up to 30 degrees of temperature transfer.

Plantation Shutters On High Windows Are Still A Cinch To Clean

You’ll frequently notice eyebrow windows on top of doorways or other larger windows. This placement means they’re higher than most and potentially problematic to access. This height creates a challenge when cleaning many window coverings but not indoor shutters.

When cleaning an eyebrow window plantation shutter in Miami, just use a duster on an extendable pole to access the shutter. It’s simple to slide a duster between the louvers and around the corners to collect every bit of dust. You’ll also appreciate how the shutter won’t move side to side or bend like shades or blinds.
