The Best Blinds for Arched Windows

Arched windows are one of the most beautiful and unique ways to add style, interest and character to your home. Dressing them can seem like a challenge but it doesn't have to be! If your home boasts an arched window or two don’t despair, we can fit almost any blind to any shape window to achieve exactly the look and feel you’re going for.

The Best Blinds for Arched Windows

How to cover different shaped windows

Here are our picks for the best blinds for your arched window:

Shutters

One of our favourite choices, custom shutters look amazing on an arched window because they can be custom fit to the shape of the arch. Shutters can either be hinged to the side of the window, or custom cut to perfectly fit the shape, so you won't lose the appeal of the archway even when they're closed. They'll provide excellent heat and sun protection as well as light control and of course, effortless style to boot.

Curtains and Sheers

The best choice if you’re looking to add height and drama to your room, curtains and sheers are as practical as they are stylish. Oozing elegance and glamour, a blockout curtain paired with a sheer will provide the perfect balance of function and style for your arched window.

Roller Blinds

While not custom cut to the arched shape, rollers are another option for arched windows as they can be mounted as a straight bar along the top of the arch. They're very affordable and the clean, minimal style comes in a huge range of colours, making them a popular choice if you're on a budget. Our tip: For very high arches, add a sunscreen fabric layer to prevent too much sun coming through and maintain your privacy.

Aluminium Venetian Blinds

Aluminium venetians are another great and budget-friendly choice, particularly if your arched window gets direct sunlight. The reflective material will prevent too much heat and light penetrating the room but the durability of the aluminium means you won't have to worry about fading or peeling. Aluminium venetians aren't custom cut to archways so like roller blinds, the head rail will be mounted above the arch.

For an extra touch...

If your arched windows are large or hard to reach, opt for motorised blinds! They're easy to control (choose a wall switch, remote control or smart phone) and completely child safe.
