Which window treatment will work best with my window frame?

What comes to mind when you think of architecture? Large scaled buildings, landmarks, places of worship, visually stunning buildings?

Today, it is quite common for people to hire an architect to help design their home. These types of homes are often designed with eccentric layouts, intricate exteriors both visually and structurally and sometimes even unique windows. If you watched The Block this year, you would have seen two of the contestants installing round windows in their studio… which looked fantastic. But how do you furnish them?

We’ve outlined the best dressings to use below:

Curtains and Sheers

Curtains continue to be the most versatile window treatment on the market and can be used for both windows and doors of all sizes. When dressing for example, arched windows, there are several placements where curtains or sheers can be installed. For those that wish to create a sense of privacy as appose to using curtains to block out light, simply install a curtain rod below the arch. This will help break up the window into two sections – the lower section can be used to create privacy, whilst the top section can continue to fill the room with natural light.

Vertical blinds

Circular, arched and even triangled window shapes are becoming increasingly popular, so much so, that the need to dress these shapes is in high demand. Vertical blinds are custom made, just like plantation shutters but are a cheaper option. Because they are custom made these blinds can easily be tailored to suit all window and door shapes.

Plantation Shutters

Plantation Shutters continue to be a popular furnishing choice and there are many factors as to why, but one in particular, is the fact that each shutter is custom made… which means they can be tailored to fit windows and doors of all shapes and sizes.

Roller Blinds

These types of blinds are usually installed above the window frame, but if your window is a circle or arched shape, roller blinds can be installed on the windowsill instead. The reason this is installed this way is to ensure the circular or arched part of the blind is visible first. To ensure that the blind remains taut when in use, a blind guidance frame will be installed either inside or on the trim of your window.

Nowadays it is very common to pair a sheer and a plantation shutter or roller blind and having an unusual shaped window shouldn’t be an exception! No matter the shape of the window… you can’t go wrong with a blind and sheer curtain combo!
