Window Coverings for Specialty Shaped Windows

Specialty shaped windows includes: Arch, Quarter Arch, Extended arch, Eyebrow, Extended Eyebrow, Circle, Oval, Hexagon, Pentagon, Angled and more.

When it comes to specialty shaped windows, finding suitable window coverings can be even more challenging. However, there are several options available that can beautifully complement and enhance these unique windows.

  1. Blinds (Horizontal blinds)
  2. Shades (Cellular shades, Zebra shades, Sheer shades)
  3. Shutters (Vinyl shutters, Wood shutters)
  4. Roman Shades (Various styles)
  5. Custom Drapes and Curtains (Various styles)
  6. Motorized Window Coverings (Various options)
  • There could be different solution for different window shapes. Before setting a high expectation, it is very important to find out which option would be possible for your windows, given your needs and use of the room. For e.g. sheer shades and horizontal blinds may be possible for a perfect arched window but may not be possible for other shapes.
  • Some of these coverings could be operable and some could be fixed (non operable), due to the technical limitations of the product and the special shape of the window. For e.g. Shutters can be operable or non operable, where as a Cellular shade may not be operable on an arched top.
  • Motorized window coverings can be an excellent option (if possible) for hard-to-reach specialty shaped windows, using a remote or smart phone app, making it convenient and easy to operate.
  • For complex shaped windows, you can consider combining different window coverings to achieve the desired outcome. For example, you can use custom blinds or shades for the main (bottom) portion of the window and complement it with decorative draperies or curtains for added style and coverage.
  • For such windows, other than shapes there are a lot of other factors to be considered, for e.g. the wall space between the top of the window and the ceiling, the window casement depth, crank handle etc.
