One of the most common types of specialty windows, arches add architectural detail and interest to a home. They come in many different sizes and configurations, including traditional, elongated, quarter-round, half-moon, half-circle, eyebrow and Gothic styles. For all their character, though, arched windows can also present challenges when it comes to privacy and light control.
That doesn’t mean you have to settle for leaving arched windows bare. Hunter Douglas offers a broad range of custom arched window treatments that enhance privacy and provide light control, making it easy to complete the look of your room, whatever your décor.

While cellular shades are one of the most popular types of window treatments for covering arches, many cellular options are stationary. To get the most out of your window treatments, opt for an adjustable style.
Duette® Honeycomb Shades and Duette Architella® Honeycomb Shades are both available with the EasyView® Arch feature (not shown)—a revolutionary design that allows you to easily raise and lower the shade. To open, simply slide the shade handle to the right; to close, slide it to the left. In addition to the convenience, the fabric on these shades runs horizontally, complementing the look of other Duette shades in your room.
Blinds for arched windows are available in various materials, including real and faux wood, both of which lend an understated, timeless feel to any room. (If you want a wood aesthetic, keep in mind that faux wood is better for high-humidity rooms, like bathrooms, because it won’t warp or fade.)
Parkland® Wood Blinds are crafted from 100% real hardwood. Their rich, clean lines add warmth to a room, while the wood itself draws attention as a subtle accent. Managing incoming light is easy—simply rotate the slats.
Shutters are a classic, durable solution for arched windows in everything from a coastal home to a traditional colonial. Available in natural hardwood or composite, shutters for arches can follow the shape of the window for a sunburst effect—or they can run horizontally to complement other shutters in your room. Open and close the louvres for as much or as little light control as you want.
You may not think of drapery as an arched window treatment, but it’s actually an elegant solution for this specialty shape, particularly in rooms with high ceilings. Simply hang the drapery rod above the arch. You’ll maximize your view as well as be able to have privacy and light control.
You could also elevate your view by layering window treatments. Combine drapery with arched Duette shades to add another design element to your room.
If you’re looking for a window treatment to simply cover an arched window, as opposed to being able to open and close the window treatment, you might consider shadings.
Silhouette® Window Shadings have S-shaped vanes that float between two sheer panels, beautifully diffusing natural light. While Silhouette is available for arched windows, this window treatment is not operable when it’s in an arch. (You’ll need to let your window-treatment specialist know whether you want the fabric vanes permanently open or closed, so she can specify your preference when placing your order.)
As with all specialty shapes, you should consult with your local Hunter Douglas specialist when deciding which product will work best for your arched windows.
Modern Roman Shades feature consistent folds and no exposed rear cords, keeping windows uncluttered. Choose from different fold styles and sizes, and a horizontal or vertical orientation.
Pirouette® Window Shadings feature soft fabric vanes attached to a sheer backing that appears to be floating, drawing natural light into your room. When closed, they look just like a contemporary shade.
Hunter Douglas Silhouette® window shades feature soft, adjustable fabric vanes that appear to be floating between two sheer fabric panels that beautifully diffuse harsh sunlight. Simply tilt the vanes to achieve your desired level of light and privacy.
