Best Window Treatment for Arched Windows

Our Top Arched Window Treatment Recommendations

Arched windows are a lovely addition to any home. They add character and provide a refreshing accent. Arched windows create a luxurious feel that makes the architectural details in your home pop. But while beautiful arches are beloved by many, it’s no secret that they can be a challenge to accommodate. Arches and sunbursts often require specialty window treatments, which can feel like an inconvenience at first. When left uncovered, they let in a little too much sunlight that may lead to uncomfortable glares, hot spots, and can even let in damaging UV rays. It may seem daunting, but it doesn’t have to be.

At Sierra Verde Home Design Center, we love helping customers discover the potential in decorating their home through the power of window fashions. Your options may seem limited when it comes to outfitting arched windows, but that is far from the truth—and today, we’re here to share a few of our favorite options for fitting these special arched windows.

Interior Shutters

One of the most popular selling points of interior shutters is just how versatile they are when it comes to tricky windows. Arches, bay windows, angles—you name it! Shutters provide an upscale, tailor-made fit for premium light control and lasting value. Shutters range from natural hardwood to vinyl and even some combinations in-between for a stunning window treatment that keeps up with what your home demands. Custom shutters are designed to sit flush against your window frame. They provide a seal that improves insulation and are reinforced with advanced construction methods or interior aluminum bracing and interlocking shutter components for quality build you can feel.


If you enjoy decorating your room top to bottom in color and fabric, consider using custom drapery to enhanced your arched windows. Curtains and drapes can be arranged to give the aura of a more visually interesting space. We love taking advantage of rooms with high ceilings—this provides plenty of room to mount the drapes above the arched windows to maximize space and create an elegant feel. You can also dress the lower portion of the window and leave the arch open to facilitate more light into the space.

You can even pair your luxurious drapery with motorized technology that allows you to control incoming light from any place in your home. Custom hardware cleanly integrates this innovative system into your home for a low-profile look that adds a “wow factor” to your windows.
