When you have an arch top window, it can be a dilemma as to which product to choose.
Arch windows are a challenge because most people want to retain the shape of the window that the home-builder put in. Because most window treatments are rectangular in shape, it can be hard to find a solution. On this window, we considered the Carriage House subdivision homeowners actual needs. This window faces due East and as a result, the early morning light pours into his Master Bedroom. His window is high, so he doesn’t need to get a view or extra light through the window.
So we chose what he felt was the most attractive solution. That beauty comes at a price though. The sunburst arch from Norman Shutters, or Norman Window Fashions, requires each louver to be adjusted by hand if it is to be opened or closed. Therefore, our client will probably be adjusting his louvers seasonally or he will be setting them in a setting that will not be moved.
We give other choices when doing arch top windows. Our client preferred the clean lines that are shown in the video and photos. But your solution may be very different. Our consultation would help you determine which was right for you.
