10 Arched Window Treatment Ideas That Keep Their Beauty

Arched windows, as opposed to simple rectangular windows, have a certain special charm. They stand out with their shape and they are considered to be a very beautiful architectural detail. Even though they can be very beautiful without any other enhancements and additions, it’s important for the window treatments to also be chosen carefully in this case. There are several options you can explore.

You can have regular rods and curtains and cover the window just like a regular one

You could opt for a drapery rod which is a popular and classical option for all types of windows. You could either have a straight, linear rod or one that follows the curve of the windows. Another option would be to only cover one portion of the window, leaving the arch exposed. This way you get the privacy you need by only covering what’s necessary. By not hiding the upper window, you showcase the design and shape.

If you don’t want the arched window to be the focal point in the room, you can create a decoy. For example, in a modern décor, you could have curtains on the opposite corner of the room that capture the attention and that also complement the window. You could also play with geometric shapes and maybe have rectangular windows in the room along with arched windows. There’s also another interesting possibility. You can only create the impression of an arched window without actually having one. You can do that with curtains and rods. You’ll have a faux arch and you’ll trick the eye.
